The number one functional mushroom in its most enjoyable form
This powder consists of carefully double-extracted Chaga mushroom in its most concentrated form, without having any additives. Chaga is collected from birch trees growing in Finnish Lapland.
The possibilities for using Chaga mushroom are almost limitless. Chaga 6 extract powder has a harmonious, liquorice-like taste that goes well with a variety of recipes. The flavour of the extract is strong, often only ⅕-½ teaspoon is enough to season a portion, so one jar is enough for about 70 servings. The powder dissolves quickly in hot water, so you can make tea in no time, or add it to coffee as a flavouring. The powder can be blended into smoothies, porridge or used to flavour other savoury or sweet foods. You will quickly learn to like a strong flavour and if you need to sweeten it, you can use honey.
One gram of extract powder is equivalent to six grams of fresh Chaga
The jar is
- long lasting
- convenient size to take with you on the road
- an excellent gift
Grown especially in the clean environment of Lapland, Chaga is a globally appreciated mushroom with the highest antioxidant content (ORAC value) compared to berries and other mushrooms. Geographical location, growing in the harsh conditions of the north, long summer days and cold winters contribute to the high antioxidant content of the plants.
The production of the powder is a time-consuming process of drying and grinding the mushroom, then extracting it in water and alcohol. The double extraction process allows the extraction of components that cannot be extracted from single extraction to water.
Water extraction releases polysaccharides into the liquid, beta-glucans among others
- Beta-glucan has been shown to lower cholesterol levels with daily use
Alcohol releases betulinic acid, phytosterol and triterpenoids, among others, into the fluid
- Betulinic acid has been shown to inhibit the growth of malignant cells
- Phytosterol has been found to lower the absorption of cholesterol in the intestine
- Triperpenoids have anti-inflammatory properties
Once the extract is ready, the solids are strained off, the alcohol is distilled off and the water is evaporated, resulting in a strong, rich and easily consumable extract powder thanks to its solubility.
Why Chaga 6?
Besides the gourmet taste qualities, Chaga mushrooms have been traditionally used to support overall health and well-being. Chaga mushrooms are known for their potential immune-modulating properties. The polysaccharides and beta-glucans present in chaga can help stimulate and regulate the immune system, promoting a healthy immune response. Chaga is rich in antioxidants, which help combat oxidative stress and protect the body's cells from damage caused by free radicals. The phenolic compounds and triterpenoids found in chaga contribute to its potent antioxidant activity. Double-extracted chaga can offer a higher concentration of these antioxidants, potentially providing greater protection against oxidative damage. Chaga has been studied for its anti-inflammatory properties. The bioactive compounds in chaga, such as triterpenoids, have shown potential in reducing inflammation in the body. Double-extracted Chaga may enhance these anti-inflammatory effects, making it beneficial for individuals dealing with inflammation-related conditions. Chaga is considered an adaptogen, which means it may help the body adapt to stress and promote overall well-being. The combination of bioactive compounds obtained through the double-extraction process can contribute to Chaga's adaptogenic properties, supporting the body's stress response and resilience. Some people have also reported positive effects on the skin and increased energy levels after using Chaga.
