The King of Herbs
The Immortality Mushroom
The Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) is a delicious, symbiotic parasitic fungus that grows on Birch, Alder and Beech trees in colder climates. The Chaga has been used in Russia as a folk medicine since the 16th century and Nobel Prize winning literalist Alexandr Solzhenitsyn credits it with curing his Cancer.
“He could not imagine any greater joy than to go away into the woods for months on end, to break off this chaga, crumble it, boil it up on a campfire, drink it and get well like an animal. To walk through the forest for months, to know no other care than to get better! Just as a dog goes to search for some mysterious grass that will save him . . .”From “The Cancer Ward” by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
An extract of Chaga has been an approved cancer drug in Russia since 1955.
Chaga tea is used in the Russian folk medicine for a wide treatment of ailments including Skin, Lung and Stomach Cancer, gastritis, ulcers, TB and pain. Great for skin problems too.
Recent studies have shown that it is extremely high in antioxidants, as well as one of the highest sources of food source Vitamin B.
What is ORAC?
ORAC stands for “Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity”. This is a scale that measures the amount of free oxygen radicals in your body that a food or supplement can absorb. Free oxygen radicals are formed in our body from modern living, electricity, pollution, chemicals and stress. These free radicals bounce around inside of us, making us more susceptible to diseases. Cigarette smoke and pollution is full of free radicals. Ever notice how much older smokers look?
Researchers have also discovered that consumption of foods with a high ORAC score help protect against age related illnesses.
Chaga has the highest reported ORAC score in all foods and herbs and mushrooms. Chaga is also rich in Polysaccharides, which help immensely with cellular integrity.
Chaga works to prevent cellular damage before it happens, leaving the immune system free to deal with more serious health issues.
Chaga also contains betulin and betulinic acid; immuno-modulating compounds which further distinguish this mushroom as The King of Herbs. Betulin and betulinic acid exhibit properties similar to the triterpenes found in Reishi, working to build the strength of the liver and reduce inflammation.

The FDA has recommended that people should increase their antioxidant consumption to 7000 ORAC units a day to help lower their risk of Cancer.
Chaga is amazingly delicious! I personally wildcraft Chaga in the wilds of Northern BC and can’t drink enough of it. I’ve drank many herbal extracts over the years and have never found one as tasty and motivating to drink as this superior mushroom. It’s pretty too…the color of cherry amber.No wonder it is a national tea in Russia.
Chaga is a virtual cocktail of antioxidants and phytonutrients. Protect yourself and your family from the modern onslaught of free radicals and pollutants.
