Updated: Feb 4




Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is a powerful fungus containing a wide variety of vitamins & minerals. Here are the top 9 reasons you need to incorporate Chaga into your diet:


1) POTENT ANTIOXIDANT*

Chaga is one of the most antioxidant-rich superfoods in the world – scoring an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of 146,700 μ mol TE/100g - greatly exceeding the antioxidant potency of Blueberries, Turmeric & Green tea!



2) SUPERFOOD*

Chaga is packed with vitamins, minerals, nutrients & over 200 mycochemicals, including: zinc, iron, magnesium, calcium, B-complex vitamins, vitamin D, potassium, rubidium, cesium, amino acids, fiber, copper, selenium, manganese, carbohydrates (e.g. beta glucans), lipids, polyphenols & terpenes.

3) POWERFUL BOOST FOR YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM*

Chaga contains Beta-D-Glucans that boost your immune system when it is underactive & slow immune response when overactive. Learn More



4) DECREASE INFLAMMATION*

Chaga regulates cytokine production which lowers inflammation. It is also high in betulinic acid, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Learn more




5) SLOW DOWN THE AGING PROCESS*

Chaga is high in melanin & anti-oxidants - providing UV protection & preventing the onset of wrinkles, uneven skin-tone, and skin inflammation. Learn More

6) CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH*

The betulinic acid in Chaga is able to break down the bad LDL cholesterol in the body, reducing the risk of heart disease. Learn more



7) IMMUNE MODULATION & APOPTOSIS*

Research suggests that Chaga can reduce the growth of cancer cells by as much as 60% by reducing oxidative stress, which helps protect DNA from dangerous mutations. Learn more




8) STRENGTHEN DIGESTIVE HEALTH*

Chaga supports those who suffer from digestive issues by reducing the overall levels of oxidative stress (free radical damage) to cells lining the gastrointestinal tract which may contribute to the development of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBS) such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.

9) SUPPORT YOUR MENTAL HEALTH*

Chaga is considered to be an adaptogenic mushroom. Adaptogens increase the human body's ability to manage the affects of stress. Chaga Mushroom helps in fighting fatigue, anxiety, and stress related depression.

CHAGA SPAGYRIC TINCURE - TRIA ALCHEMY

In the 16th century, a brilliant man named Paracelsus (a physician popularly known as the father of modern toxicology) developed a spagyric extraction process which enabled access to the full restorative power of a medicinal plant or mushroom.

The majority of medicinal tinctures on the current market are double-extracted & contain filler ingredients. Unfortunately, this method does not offer the same potency as a spagyric extraction & produces results that are less bioavailable for the human body.

We handcraft our tinctures using Paracelsus’ spagyric alchemical technique to extract the TRIA PRIMA- the BODY,SOUL &SPIRIT of the Chaga Mushroom. This method allows us to offer you the HIGHEST POSSIBLE POTENCY Chaga medicinal tincture.
