Product Information

Best Known For

Chaga is highly regarded for its health-promoting properties. It is frequently consumed as a supplement for its strong antioxidant capabilities, which are believed to help combat cellular damage and promote longevity. Additionally, it is used to enhance immune function, potentially helping the body resist and recover from illness more effectively. Chaga is also appreciated for its anti-inflammatory effects, which can be beneficial for managing conditions like arthritis. Furthermore, its use in supporting digestive and liver health is well noted. Some proponents also explore its potential in cancer prevention and treatment. Chaga's adaptability in various forms, such as teas and powders, makes it a popular choice among natural health enthusiasts.

Did you know?

Powerful Antioxidant Properties: Chaga mushrooms are one of the highest sources of antioxidants, particularly superoxide dismutase (SOD) and melanin. These antioxidants help protect cells from oxidative damage, support healthy aging, and boost overall wellness.

Supports Immune Function: Chaga is rich in beta-glucans, which enhance the immune system by stimulating the production of white blood cells. This helps the body defend against infections and illnesses more effectively, making Chaga a potent immune booster.

Directions for Use

The daily serving / dose for this extract is 1000mg, or about 1/2 teaspoon per day. Because the density and weight of each extract can vary, it is best to measure out 1000mg (1 gram) on a kitchen scale to be precise, but a little more or less is not a concern.
This extract can be easily added to a cup of coffee or tea, a smoothie or shake, or into soups or other foods.
While there is no "best time" to take it, we find that mornings are best because of the energy boost that is often associated with it.

Here is some more detailed information to help you.

Product Attributes

Why Extraction Matters: 100% Organic Mushroom Extracts

Mushrooms have tough cell walls made of chitin, which can be difficult for humans to digest. This limits access to the beneficial compounds that make mushrooms so potent. That’s why extraction is crucial—it “breaks down” these cell walls, making the bioactive compounds more bioavailable. All Fantastic Fungi products are extracted from 100% organic mushroom fruiting bodies, ensuring you reap all the benefits they have to offer.

Scientifically Verified for Active Compounds

Trust in the science. Our chaga extract powder is not only rich in beta-glucans but also verified for its active compounds, offering you a product that truly delivers on its promises.

Elevate your wellness journey with Fantastic Fungi’s Pure Chaga Sclerotium Extract Powder—your go-to source for premium, potent, and pure chaga extract.

Fruiting body vs Mycelium and Spores

There is a lot of discussion around which parts of the mushroom should be used for extraction. Here is a short explanation:
In mushrooms, the part that is typically used for extracting nutrients and compounds is the fruiting body, which is the visible part of the mushroom that emerges above ground. This is because the fruiting body contains most of the bioactive compounds, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial substances.

The fruiting body is rich in nutrients and bioactive compounds because it is where the reproductive structures of the mushroom develop. These structures contain various substances that the mushroom needs for growth and reproduction, as well as compounds that help defend against pathogens and predators.

However, it's worth noting that different parts of the mushroom may have different nutritional profiles and concentrations of bioactive compounds. For example, some mushrooms also produce mycelium, the underground network of fungal threads, which can also contain valuable nutrients and compounds. Additionally, certain species of mushrooms may have medicinal properties associated with specific parts of the organism, such as the mycelium or even the spores. Therefore, the specific part of the mushroom used for extraction can depend on the desired nutrients or compounds and the intended use.

We always use the fruiting body for our extracts but we are also working on developing special compound extracts from other parts like the mycelium and spores. Keep an eye on our blogs and subscribe to our newsletter to get notified of these advancements as they happen.

Extraction Process

We use a very unique and effective dual or triple extraction process that includes enzymatic extraction, hot water extraction and even solvent extraction for certain mushrooms and/or desired compounds. This ensures that all of the beneficial nutrients are extracted from the mushroom fruiting body. It also breaks down the chitin.

Chitin is like the tough armor that mushrooms wear, similar to how insects have their exoskeletons. This armor protects the mushroom's cells, but it's tough for our bodies to break down and use as food.

For us to get the nutrients from mushrooms, we need to break down this armor into smaller, digestible parts. Enzymes called chitinases do this job. They break down the chitin into smaller pieces that our bodies can absorb and use for energy.

So, without breaking down chitin, we can't get the nutrients from mushrooms.

Botanical Information

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is a unique type of fungus that primarily grows on birch trees in cold climates. This fungus is known for its distinctive, hard, charcoal-like exterior with a rusty brown interior. Chaga is celebrated for its high antioxidant content, which can help protect cells from damage by free radicals. It's commonly used in herbal medicine to boost the immune system and to fight inflammation. People also turn to Chaga as a natural remedy for improving digestive health and supporting liver function. Moreover, there is growing interest in its potential anti-cancer properties. Chaga can be consumed as a tea or in powdered form, making it a versatile addition to a health-conscious regimen.

For Pets

Chaga mushroom extract is highly beneficial for pets, primarily for its potent immune-boosting properties. Rich in antioxidants, it helps reduce oxidative stress and may protect against cellular damage. This extract is also noted for its anti-inflammatory benefits, which can aid in alleviating chronic conditions like arthritis. Regular supplementation with chaga can support overall vitality and wellness in pets, promote longevity, and improve the quality of their coat and skin health.

The daily dose for dogs and cats is about 10 mg per pound mixed into their food.
For example, if your dog is 50 pounds, they would get 500 mg or about a quarter teaspoon.

If you have any questions or if you'd like dosage information for a different type of pet, please feel free to ask us - info@ecogenya.com. We are always happy to help :)
