Chaga (scientific name: Inonotus obliquus) is an amazing medicinal mushroom that only grows in cold climates, and is most potent when exposed to temperatures under -40°F. That's why Siberian Chaga is the best Chaga you can buy.
Siberian Chaga is the most powerful antioxidant in its class, and has the highest antioxidant concentration of any known natural food. Chaga grows in Siberia, Korea, Canada, the Northern US and parts of the Carolina mountains. But, because of the extremely cold temperatures encountered in the Siberian forest, Siberian Chaga is the most potent variety worldwide.
Chaga takes 5 to 7 years to grow, and is very rare. Chaga cannot be farmed, so Sayan uses wild-harvested Chaga that is hand-picked in the depth of the Siberian Taiga, where the temperatures are below -40°F at least five months a year! Our unique harvesting process preserves the life of all living things in the Taigas (especially the birch trees that Chaga likes to grow on), minimizing environmental impact.
Although Chaga has only recently been introduced to the United States, it is well-known throughout many places, such as Asia and Siberia, where it has been used for centuries.
Chaga is said to have been identified 4,600 years ago by the Shen Nong, the legendary father of Chinese medicine, and it was documented in the primary Chinese pharmacoepia some 2,200 years ago and was used to:
In the past 40 years, many of the reported Chaga testimonials have been backed up by over 1,400 clinical and scientific research publications. Some of these studies have concluded that Siberian Chaga has many beneficial properties in promoting good health.
Chaga's legendary health-giving reputation is partly derived from its extraordinarily high antioxidant concentration. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which are unstable molecules that damage cells and cause premature aging.
Chaga is also an adaptogen, a class of natural substances that enhance the body's ability to adapt to stress and physical challenges.
Siberian Chaga is non-toxic and has no side effects. You can get benefits of Siberian Chaga by brewing a cup of tea with Chaga powder or tea bags (it contains no caffeine!) or by simply adding it to your favorite juice, shake or smoothie on a daily basis for a refreshing health drink loaded with antioxidants. We also offer you convenient pills that are effective and easy to take. Learn more about Chaga by browsing our site or buy Chaga now.
