Chaga powder

Chaga, nonotus obliquus, is a highly nutritious mushroom that grows on birch trees in the temperate climates of in Europe, Russia, Canada and Siberia. The mushroom has been used as traditional remedies and medicine for several centuries for preventing illness and disease.

For many people, mushroom is not the most appetizing. It can also be difficult to consume a lot of the food, as it is high in fibre and quite filling. We have formulated a concentrated powder that packs the super-food, and the powerful nutrients, into a bite-size spoonful.

Key health aspects of chaga powder

Antioxidants

Because chaga has only recently been introduced as a potent super-food, there is not a lot of research around the mushroom in humans. There have, however, been an abundance of studies in animals and on isolated human tissue. From these, it has been agreed that it contains one of the most diverse and comprehensive arrays of antioxidants available and that these may provide protective benefits in the body.

Antioxidants help to quench harmful molecules that build up in our bodies. This can help to prevent us from contracting illnesses and conditions such as cardiovascular disease and cancer.


High in fibre - digestion, weight loss

One of the main reasons that our chaga powder is so popular, is the fibre content. When formulating our nutritious powder, we ensured that the fibre content remained intact.

Fibre is known as the part of plant foods that we cannot breakdown and digest. This is because we do possess the digestive enzymes to do so. However, this fibre is still very important for adding bulk to the stool, feeding the friendly bacteria in the gut, avoiding weight gain and for overall digestive motility.

B-vitamins

The B-vitamins include thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, folic acid and cobalamin (B12). These are the family of vitamins known best for facilitating the production of energy from the food we consume. Chaga is a natural source of several of these B-vitamins. 

Minerals

Along with the B-vitamins, chaga mushroom is also a source of several essential minerals. Essential simply means that we cannot produce them in the body and must consume them through our food. Minerals are inorganic elements in the body that we need in small amounts for a variety of functions. Chaga contains sources of copper, selenium, zinc and magnesium.
