Chaga is an interesting fungus, in that it is not what we would call a mushroom. It is a canker, that commonly grows on birch trees. A canker is mycelium, that is growing into the living wood of the birch tree causing the tree to react and forms what looks like a cancerous growth on the tree. early peoples, seeing this tree "cancer" would think that Chaga would be good for cancer, and as it turns out, it is very good for cancer. Alexander Solzynitzen the Nobel prize winning author wrote about his own success with chaga in his book, "Cancer Ward."
The beta gluten content of chaga is lower than mushrooms because its derived from it mycelium growing in to the wood of the tree. It is not easily cultivated, so the organic mushrooms are collected in the wild (wild-crafted). It is commonly collected from birch trees in Siberia or Scandinavia. Once harvested the chanker is dried and powdered and then subjected to a hot water processing to extract as much of its active constituents as possible.
More than 200 active molecules have been found in Chaga. Other than the beta glucans which are fairly low in concentration, betulinic acid, and other terpenes, as well as other active molecules account for the bulk of Chaga's bio-activity. Molecules such as inotodiol, betulin, lanosterol, triterpenes, and melanin. The many active constituents in Chaga result in the powerful actions and applications for this fungus in dogs, cats, horses and humans.
Beta Glucan content guaranteed greater than 8 % beta glucans, Starch less than 3%
