Meet the majestic “King Healer” of the mushroom kingdom and one of the most powerful adaptogens known of in the world today. Chaga is a medicinal marriage of some of the most important phytonutrients existing — it’s known to be deeply nutritive and the ancient Chinese consider it the most complete of all foods. Recognized as an extremely potent immunomodulator, which has shown in research studies to exhibit remarkable anti-cancer, anti-bacterial and anti-viral actions. It is also traditionally known to be one of the most profoundly cleansing of all mushrooms, with strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may help to protect the genetic integrity of the cells. Therefore, this forest emperor can truly play an integral part in anyones quest for longevity. This particular extract is unique in our collection because it has been created as a hydroenthanolic dual extract of the pure fruiting bodies. This allows for a greater concentration of the triterpenes to be made available and is standardized to 30% polysaccharides, 5% polyphenol, and 2% triterpene. The flavor profile is sharp with subtle notes of blackberry & raspberry, and it makes an absolutely delicious tea.
