Innotech Wild Harvested Chaga Mushroom Chunks
Introducing Wild Harvested Chaga Mushroom Chunks by Innotech Nutrition, which are organic and suitable for vegans. These chaga chunks are carefully selected from wild chaga found on aging Canadian birch trees, harvested sustainably. They are preserved in chunk form to maintain their freshness and can be reused for multiple brews. Chaga is commonly used by many as a natural tea alternative without caffeine. Before being sold, the product undergoes third-party lab testing to ensure it is free from heavy metals and bacteria.
Antioxidants: Chaga is rich in antioxidants, including phenols, flavonoids, and melanin. These antioxidants help protect the body against oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which can contribute to various health issues.
Chaga contains various bioactive compounds, including triterpenoids, sterols, and melanin. One specific compound found in chaga is betulinic acid, which is derived from the birch trees on which the mushroom grows. Betulinic acid has been investigated for its potential anti-cancer, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties.
The only ingredient in these chaga chunks is the wild harvested Chaga Mushroom (Organic Inonotus Obliquus). This mushroom is known as a source of fungal polysaccharides with immunomodulating properties, which suggests it has beneficial effects on the immune system.
How To Prepare:
To prepare Chaga Tea, the directions suggest simmering 2-3 chunks in 32 oz (1 liter) of water at 149°F (65°C) for 3-4 hours, without boiling. Alternatively, a faster method involves pouring boiling water over the chunks and letting them steep for at least 15 minutes. This amount of Chaga Chunks is estimated to make approximately 80 cups of Chaga Tea.
A helpful tip provided is to save the used chaga chunks in the refrigerator and reuse them for up to three brews. This practice is encouraged due to the rarity of wild chaga and the potential to extract nutrients multiple times. It is mentioned that high-quality chaga will have a subtle vanilla taste.
