CHAGA MUSHROOMS -- Inonotus obliquus whole mushroom hot water extract from REAL MUSHROOMS
60 grams of pure mushroom powder per bottle
Chaga mushroom from Real Mushrooms is 100% pure mushroom hot water extract. No mycelial biomass grown on grain.
Chaga is an interesting fungus, in that it is not what we would call a mushroom. It is a "sclerotium" that commonly grows on birch trees. A sclerotium is mycelium, that is growing in wood, and does not go on to form the mushroom fruiting body. As a result its beta gluten content is lower than mushrooms derived from fruiting bodies. It is not easily cultivated, so the organic mushrooms are collected in the wild (wild-crafted) from birch trees, in Siberia or Scandinavia and are 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, terpenes, and other active molecules account for the bulk of Chana's bio-activity. Molecules such as inotodiol, betulin, lanosterol, triterpenes melanin, and many other constituents result in the multiple actions and applications of this fungus.
Beta Glucan content guaranteed greater than 8 % beta glucans and Starch less than 3%

This mushroom extract is highly potent and safe to use.
It has a slightly barky, woody, mildly bitter taste. This powder will be accepted by many pets. But, if your pet is reluctant too try it, you can mix it with some tasty wet food to ease any issues with administration. If your pet is a bit picky about new tastes, start with a very small amount, not much more than pinch and add that to some tasty food and feed. If your pet accepts that small amount, give it for a few days then gradually increase it to the dose that matches your pet's weight.
Serving sizes vary with the size of your pet. Here are some guidelines. For increased results, increasing the amount given can help.
- Cats and Small Dogs: 1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon daily
- Medium Sized Dogs: 1/2 - 1 teaspoon daily
- Large Sized Dogs: 1 -2 teaspoons daily
NOTE: Chaga is very safe to give, so if your pet accepts it readily, and you would like to provide a more substantial dose, you can safely double or triple the dose for greater efficacy for greater problems.
