    CHAGA MUSHROOM DESCRIPTION

    Chaga Mushroom is also known as Inonotus obliquus, Cinder conk, Chaga, Clinker polypore, Birch mushroom, Black Birch Touchwood, Crooked Schiller-porling.

    Chaga Mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) is a black parasitic fungus produced on the living trunks of mature birch that resembles burnt charcoal. It causes the tree's death in 5 to 7 years, and in fact, Chaga Mushroom is called "birch cancer" in Russia. The shape of the mushroom also resembles that of cancer in the human body. Chaga Mushroom has a bitter, coffee-like flavor. Since the 16th century, Chaga Mushroom has been used as a remedy for cancer and diseases of the digestive system, because it stimulates the immune system and draws the life force out of tumors.

    Chaga is predominantly found in Poland, Western Siberia, and throughout North America. Even in the most prime Northern regions, Chaga conks are somewhat rare. Recent studies in China and Korea have shown that that Chaga is high in antioxidants, but the studies have yet been able to pinpoint why this is. It has been sold in Russia since the 1960's as Befunigin, and is commonly found in many Russian households.

    CHAGA MUSHROOM USES & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    Chaga has been a part of folk medicine in Russia, Poland, China and numerous Baltic countries for many centuries. It was documented by Chinese herbalist Shen Nong in his herbal texts as early as the first century B.C.E.

    Chaga is a mushroom, a parasitic carpophore that looks like the charred remains of burned wood on the side of a birch tree (sometimes growing on Elm and Alder, but Birch is its favorite). The parasite enters the tree through a 'wound' in the bark of a mature tree. It then grows under the bark until it erupts in a deeply cracked, black charcoal like extension. It usually takes another 5 to 7 years for it to fully mature, at which point it falls to the forest floor, most times killing the host tree in the process.

    This wood-rotting fungus has been used as a folk medicine in many East European countries including Russia, to treat gastritis, ulcers, tuberculosis (TB) of the bones, and cancer. The inner brown layer closest to the tree is the portion of the fungus most often used. Medical research has shown Chaga to be effective as an anti-tumor agent. In 1958, scientific studies in Finland and Russia found this mushroom provided an epochal effect in uterine, liver, breast, and gastric cancer, and hypertension and diabetes.

    The anti-cancer properties of Betulin or Betulinic Acid, a chemical isolated from birch trees, is now being studied for use as a chemotherapeutic agent. Chaga contains large amounts of Betulinic Acid in a form that can be ingested orally. The Chaga Mushroom also contains the full spectrum of immune-stimulating phytochemicals found in other medicinal mushrooms.

    In 2004 there was a study done at Department of Medical Nutrition in South Korea. The Chaga Mushroom was evaluated for their potential for protecting against oxidative damage to DNA in human lymphocytes. The study found that the Chaga Mushroom treatment affords cellular protection against some DNA damage.





    CHAGA MUSHROOM DOSAGE INFORMATION

    - Chaga Mushroom comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. The entire mushroom is used in all preparations noted.

    Chaga is typically and historically ingested as a tea, but it also has been made into a tincture, and less commonly into powder that is then used as a tea; Encapsulation seems to be rare. There have been reports of it being the base for liqueurs and as a substitute for hops in beer. In Russia, it can be found as a syrup, a tablet, an aerosol, and even as a suppository. If you are using the cut Chaga for the purpose of making a tea, you can re-brew your material a second time without loss to flavor or potency. For best results, read and follow product label directions. If making a tea you can dissolve one teaspoon dried mushroom in one cup of water several times per day.

    Chaga is traditionally grated into a fine powder and used to brew a beverage resembling coffee or tea. For medicinal use, an extraction process is needed to make at least some of the bio-active components bioavailable. These bio-actives are found in the mostly indigestible chitin cell walls of the chaga. Humans lack the enzyme chitinase, so cannot fully digest raw mushrooms or their derivatives, and the digestive process works too fast for the stomach acid to take effect. Scientific studies and research are in general also based on highly concentrated extracts, and traditional Russian usage is also based on a form of hot-water extraction (by preparing zavarka).

    Currently, three extraction processes are used, each with a different outcome.
    • Hot water extraction is the most common and the cheapest method. It can be compared to the traditional tea-making process. All water-soluble components will be present in the resulting extract. Water-insoluble components, such as phytosterols, betulinic acid and betulin, will be absent. Several extraction rounds combined with modern pharmaceutical techniques can result in high levels of polysaccharides, up to almost 60-percent. The Beta-D-glucans, the bio-active part of these polysaccharides, might add up to approximately 20-percent. Polyphenolic components are water-solubles and will also be present.

    • Ethanol or methanol extraction isolates the water-insoluble components, betulinic acid, betulin and the phytosterols. This extraction process is in general used as a second step after hot-water extraction, since ethanol alone will not break down chitin effectively - heat is essential.

    • Fermentation is the most time-consuming, so is the most expensive; this method is not used very often. Because fermentation methods are not standardized (many types of bacteria and fungi can be used in the process), the outcome is also not standardized.

    Extracts with a therapeutic value usually combine two methods, usually hot water and ethanol extraction. This will result in all bioactive components being present. Cheap, mass-produced extracts are in general hot water, low percentage (4 to 20-percent) polysaccharide extracts with limited therapeutic value. The information on the supplements' label will usually reveal inclusion or exclusion of components. However, the majority of mushroom dietary supplements that are sold are non-extracted, being the cheapest option. To achieve at least some therapeutic effects the consumer has to make a tea from it.





    CHAGA MUSHROOM SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS

    Chaga Mushroom is generally regarded as safe when taken in the recommended doses.

    No safety concerns have been historically noted, but caution should be used when pregnant or breast feeding, and before giving to children. Discontinue use if allergic reactions occur. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.

    Agaricus blazei is a medicinal mushroom that contains a special class of polysaccharides known as "beta glucans." Studies show beta glucans stimulate activity of natural killer (NK) cells, which are an important part of the immune system. The Agaricus blazei in this product is extracted with the preferred hot water/alcohol method to increase its digestibility and enhance bioavailability of the polysaccharides. Originally discovered in Brazil, Agaricus blazei is widely consumed in many countries, where it is regarded as a health food, due to its medicinal properties. The mushroom is used both in tea form and as a food. Since 1965, strains of Agaricus blazei have been imported to Japan, where it is now widely cultivated and researched. Product benefits - Supports immune function. Agaricus blazei has been the subject of research in Japan, where investigations have focused on the role of mushroom polysaccharides as "biological response modifiers that can stimulate immune function. Studies have shown that beta glucans extracted from Agaricus are the active polysaccharides, with 1,6 beta-glucan as the most potent immunomodulator. Fungi-derived beta glucans have been found to stimulate the release of tumor necrosis factor from immune cells called "macrophages." While activating the immune response to abnormal cells, beta glucans have no effect on normal cells.
