Chaga, or slanted rust (Inonotus obliquus), is a popular medicinal mushroom native to the northern hemisphere. It occurs naturally on the bark of birch and other deciduous trees, where it grows in a parasitic manner. However, because of its beneficial effects, it is often referred to as the ‘king of mushrooms’, the ‘diamond of the forest’ or the ‘mushroom of immortality’.

WHAT BENEFICIAL SUBSTANCES DOES CHAGA CONTAIN?
The mushroom contains a whole host of important biologically active substances. It is very rich in antioxidants (it contains up to 10 times more than in fruits and vegetables), of which melanin is particularly important. These substances support the body’s ability to cope with pathogens.
It also contains a number of polysaccharides, especially betaglucans, which harmonise the immune system and have a beneficial effect on blood cholesterol levels.
A third important group of substances are triterpenes, in particular betulin or betulinic acid, which chaga obtains from birch. Triterpenes also support the body’s defences.
HOW HAS CHAGA BEEN USED TRADITIONALLY?
Due to its beneficial properties, chaga has been used for thousands of years. In Siberian folk medicine, it has been administered to detoxify and relieve nausea as well as a tonic to strengthen the body.
Russian folk medicine has for centuries administered it as a support in the treatment of serious illnesses. Alaexandr Solzhenitsyn mentions his experience of using rust in the successful treatment of his own cancer in his book Cancer.
During the Second World War in Finland, chaga was used to replace the then unavailable coffee because of its taste and similar aromatic profile, and to ward off fatigue and regain physical strength. And even before that, it was made famous by the inhabitants of a Siberian village who also used it as a substitute for coffee and tea and enjoyed unusually robust health.
WHERE DOES OUR CHAGA COME FROM?
Recent studies have shown that the further north chaga is grown, the more beneficial beta-glucans and tripertensives it contains . This chaga comes from a region beyond the Arctic Circle, from organically managed forests in Finland.
Its supplier, KÄÄPÄ Mushrooms, is currently the largest producer of chaga in the world. It actively produces approximately 100 000 kilograms of rust annually using sustainable birch logs. In doing so, he places great emphasis on maintaining the balance of the entire forest ecosystem.
With the mushroom tinctures from KÄÄPÄ Mushrooms it is important that they contain only the fruiting bodies, not the mycelium. By preserving the root seed and processing only the above-ground part of the mushroom, it is ensured that the vinaigrette contains all the important compounds that may be missing in the roots. Although mycelium can be cultured in laboratory conditions and subsequently cultured as fungi, some fungal products thus obtained may be poor in nutrients.
UNIQUE EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGY
KÄÄPÄ Mushrooms tinctures are processed by a revolutionary method of ultrasonic assisted extraction – UAE (Ultrasonic Assisted Extraction). This process is very clean and efficient and improves the recovery of important compounds from mushrooms many times over.
The ground fruiting bodies of the functional mushrooms are placed in an ultrasonic extraction device. The ultrasonic waves help to break down the chitin cell wall in the mushrooms and release important compounds that would otherwise be indigestible to the mushroom organism.
For double extraction, only liquid extracting agents are used: clear spring water together with hot alcohol. This extraction procedure yields the maximum amount of extractable liquids.
The UAE method ensures that each bottle of tincture is highly purified, with most of the beneficial ingredients in an easily digestible form without residual chemicals.
