What is Chaga?
Inonotus obliquus is a parasitic fungus that grows on damaged, sick birch trees across northern Eurasia. Chaga has an irregular shape; its surface is black and rough, resembling a lump of burnt charcoal. The Chaga mushroom is actually a mass of hardened mycelium known as sclerotia. The first historical use of Chaga to activate the immune system dates back to the 12th century.
Before you start wild-harvesting Chaga, please know this incredible mushroom can absorb toxins, including pesticides and heavy metals. Foodsporen® Chaga Capsules offer a pure, potent product free of environmental toxins. All Foodsporen® extracts are standardized to a remarkable 30% polysaccharides (PSP)
What is Chaga good for?
Use Inonotus obliquus in times of stress, during cold and flu season, or whenever your immune defense system needs extra support. Modern science has confirmed that Chaga-mycelium contains high levels of antioxidants, betulin, plant-based sterols, melanins, phenolics, terpenoids and beta-glucan polysaccharides. Chaga also contains B vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Unfortunately, current EU legislation prohibits us from making claims that may suggest medicinal properties of mushrooms or herbs. Although traditional Chinese medicine has existed for thousands of years, has been tested on numerous patients and recognized for its immune support and cognitive health potential, we cannot mention effects confirmed by current scientific research. Instead, we refer you to the following detailed sources of information on mushrooms, available publicly online:

If you are currently on medication, have surgery planned, have health or medical conditions, are pregnant or breastfeeding, we strongly advise you consult with your doctor or immunotherapy specialist before incorporating Foodsporen® Chaga into your daily routine.
Do Foodsporen® Chaga capsules contain filler or mycelium grain?
Foodsporen® only uses the fruiting bodies for each of its products. The products do not contain fillers or mycelium on grain. Foodsporen® Chaga capsules contain organic fruiting body extracts with a 12:1 concentration. It took 12 grams of dried Chaga to produce 1 gram of the extract used in this product.
Foodsporen® Triple Extraction Method
Foodsporen® utilizes a triple extraction method to harness the range of immune defense system benefits fully. When it comes to mushrooms, beneficial compounds are primarily soluble in alcohol (such as triterpenes and similar compounds) and in water (such as 1,3 1,6 beta-glucans). To create a balanced and potent product, Foodsporen® combines alcohol and water extraction with the ultrasonic sound frequency extraction technique. This triple extraction method follows strict scientific guidelines, utilizing optimal alcohol percentages, temperatures and extraction duration. Finally, in the case of powders and capsules, an evaporation process takes place. What you’re left with is a concentrated, alcohol-free mushroom extract. Foodsporen® offers high-quality products that align with their commitment to quality and effectiveness.
Where should I store Foodsporen® Chaga Capsules?
It is not necessary to store Foodsporen® products in the refrigerator. Foodsporen® products are packaged in high-quality MIRON violet glass. The packaging materials are designed to protect and preserve polysaccharide immunomodulators, antioxidants and other nutrients in Chaga. Store away from direct sunlight at room temperature; there’s no need to worry about temperature fluctuations.
