In Chaga, the main bio-active compounds are beta-glucans, polyphenols (anti-oxidants), betulinic acid and other terpenes and sterols.
We guarantee the presence and the percentage of these components. For the most recent Certificates of Analysis, please click here.
In Scientific research on the therapeutic potential of Chaga, the Chaga that is used is an extracted, highly purified mushroom powder. Research found that the immunological effects of mushroom extracts are up to 10 times higher when compared against non-extracted powders.
ORIVeDA's powdered extracts are comparable in both composition and quality, so the research results you read about you can also expect from our extracts. (This encapsulated product is identical to the loose extract powder sold separetly)
ORIVeDA Chaga contains guaranteed levels of the main bioactive compounds. Click here see our authorised 'Supplement Facts' label.
According to research the average amount of beta-glucans in Chaga is around 10-14% when properly extracted.
Oriveda's Chaga extract contains significantly more: over 20 % of beta-glucan. (All beta-glucans are polysaccharides, but not all polysaccharides are beta-glucans!).
This high percentage is possible because we use advanced purification techniques, removing useless matter such as wood from the raw Chaga. Most people don't know that only ± 10% of the Chaga conk is actually 'mushroom', the rest is mainly 'useless' wood.**
By removing the 'non-Chaga' matter the potency increases significantly.
Extracted using a combination of hot water (for beta-glucan / polyphenols) and ethanol extraction (for sterols, betulinic acid and other terpenoids, etc.). The final product contains no traces of alcohol.
Science has been researching these mushrooms for decades. Below we've listed the main targets in Chaga research*.
