What is the % of Polysaccharides?

Our Chaga contains 50% polysaccharides. 

 

What does the Fruiting body or Mycelium mean in the context of Chaga? 

A fruiting body is generally what you would visually recognize as a mushroom. It is fleshy, contains spores, and grows above ground or directly on the surface of its host, like a tree or old log. The mushroom's fruiting body comprises of a stem, cap, and gills, which are what the general populace would eat in a culinary dish, but in nature, it acts primarily as the reproductive component of a fungal system, dispersing spores and inoculating hosts. 

Mycelium is the main body and feeding membrane of a mushroom. It grows underground or within the host plant. While it might not look like much, the mycelium acts much like a complex network that can communicate with and adapt to its surrounding environment. Think of it like the roots of the mushrooms. 

 

Which one is better Mycelium or the Fruiting body? 

Fruiting bodies are considered “full spectrum” as they provide a wider array of the mushroom’s nutritional components. Fruiting bodies offer more minerals, including phosphorous, copper, zinc, and potassium. Fruiting body extracts also contain higher concentrations of vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamin D, beta-carotene, and various B vitamins. 

Mycelium, on the other hand, was primarily created as a “cheaper” alternative that was quicker to produce. Mycelium unfortunately contains very little of the important compounds, vitamins, and nutrients of the actual mushroom. 

Furthermore, mycelium is not allowed to be considered a mushroom by the FDA, but many companies in the mushroom extract industry will hide this with clever labels.

 

Which one is Antioxi's made up of? 

The product is a 100% fruiting body extract. The extract provides a concentrated form of the glyconutrients and healthy components present in Chaga. The fruiting body is where the magic is. 

 

What is difference between Chaga powder and Chaga Extract? 

An extract is a preparation that results from taking raw plant material and applying a solvent to it, such as water or alcohol. The solvent causes the dissolvable compounds to be separated from the structural part of the plant or mushroom. Extracts contain high levels of the active ingredient a particular herb or mushroom is known for. 

Another advantage of extracts over raw herbs is higher bioavailability – a fancy term that means they are easier for the body to absorb and use. 

 

What are the different extraction methods? 

Currently there are 3 methods of extracting said nutrients: Water, Alcohol and Dual (both). 

A hot water extract is exactly what it sounds like – using hot water to dissolve water-soluble ingredients from raw herbs or mushrooms. The same process is undergone for Alcohol extraction where the water is substituted for alcohol. In some cases, it may be beneficial to use both water and alcohol extraction – a method referred to as a dual or double extraction. 

 

Which extraction method is better? 

When shopping around for mushroom supplements, it is beneficial to know what kind of extraction method is used for your specific product. This will ensure that you are getting a high-quality supplement that actually works. 

If you are looking for a Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Shiitake, or Maitake mushroom product, you should look for a hot water extract product. This is because their most important active ingredients – beta-glucans – are water-soluble. Using alcohol or dual extraction for these mushrooms is not desirable, because alcohol would cause some of the beta-glucans to solidify and be filtered out of the liquid. 

On the other hand, the Reishi and Chaga mushrooms can benefit from dual extraction because they contain both water-soluble beta-glucans and alcohol-soluble terpenoids. 

 

Is it safe to consume during pregnancy? 

Generally speaking, if you are pregnant or trying to conceive, we recommend seeking medical advice before taking Chaga or any of our other products. 

Furthermore, to date, there has been no concerted investigation into the use of Chaga mushroom in pregnancy and lactation.

Your Chaga Benefits

- "Fights Viruses and Prevents Virus replication" 

Research has shown that the compounds in Chaga show biological action against several types of viruses, and also prevent replication of various virus types. In research studies, Chaga has even blocked strains of herpes from entering cells.

- "Stimulates white blood cells which fight harmful bacteria and viruses" 

Research has shown that Chaga promotes the formation of beneficial cytokines which are specialized proteins that regulate the immune system. By doing so, Chaga stimulates white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off harmful bacteria and viruses.

- "Can Prevent and Slow cancer Growth" 

Studies have shown that Chaga can prevent and slow cancer growth. 

In a study , performed on mice, the use of Chaga resulted in a 60% reduction in tumor size. Furthermore, a test-tube study, showed that Chaga extract prevented the growth of cancer in human liver cells. 

Similar results were observed with cancer cells of the lung, breast, prostate and colon. 

 

- "Offers Chemotherapy support" 

Studies have also shown that Chaga is also excellent for Chemotherapy support. The time scale, of how rapidly patients recover from chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy greatly depends on the percentage of resting stem cells remaining after the treatment.

In a study, analysing if Chaga mushroom extract could be used to overcome the immune-suppressive effects caused by chemical-induced bone marrow damage, it was found that, in chemical-treated mice, the oral administration of the Chaga mushroom extract increased the levels of chemically protective cytokines including IL-6 and TNF-α, which are well known to stimulate stem cell recovery and hematopoietic regeneration after bone marrow damage (Antman et al., 1988).

- "Reduces oxidative stress & contains immune health boosting properties " 

Chaga has been studied in a variety of settings, mostly for its positive effect on oxidative stress and immune health boosting properties. Both a reduction of oxidative stress as well as a strong immune system have shown promising solutions to those who suffer from digestive issues.

In one such study,  hydrogen peroxide was used in-vitro on cells to create the environment of oxidative stress. The cells were taken from 40 volunteers – 20 of whom had inflammatory bowel disease and 20 considered to be free of any digestive issues. Throughout the duration of the study, cells were given various doses of hydrogen peroxide, in addition to varying doses of Chaga extract. 

In cells that were given Chaga, a 54.9 % reduction of oxidative damage was noted, with only a 34.9 percent reduction noted in the control group.
