The foundation for this Elemental Elixir Chaga & Aloe was created based on a 100-year-old family recipe from the Estonian family of Siim Kabrits (founder Chaga Health).
The family recipe was too valuable not to share with the whole world so that is exactly what happened!
This Organic Elemental Elixir Chaga & Aloe contains the following ingredients:
Medicinal mushroom Chaga (Inonotus obliquus)
Chaga has been used for over 600 years in Asia, Russia, Estonia and Siberia for its potential health-promoting properties. Traditionally, a strong tea was drawn from Chaga mushrooms and simmered on the stove for hours before a dark, almost black liquid remained that was used as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.
Aloe (Aloe arborescensis)
Aloe arborescensis is Aloe vera's even more powerful big brother. Aloe is attributed with anti-inflammatory properties due to its ability to activate the immune system.
These anti-inflammatory constituents of Aloe are: aloe-emodin, aloenin, barbaloin, beta-sitosterol. Aloe arborescens is the more exotic ingredient in this elixir.
Estonian families grew Aloe indoors since 1900 and used its beneficial juice for a host of ailments. Estonia is too cold to grow Aloe on a larger scale, so the Aloe for this elixir is grown on a family farm in northern Italy.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)Traditionally, Yarrow was used for rheumatic complaints, muscle pain, and healing wounds. Research suggests that Yarrow can boost the immune response, which has a positive effect on overall health.
Pine Buds (Pinus sylvestris)Research suggests Pine Buds may have anti-inflammatory effects and may stimulate the immune system. Mostly inflammation is caused by bacteria and fungi. Research has shown that pine oil from Pine cones has a suppressive effect on bacteria and fungi.
HoneyHoney contains more than 200 different types of constituents. It is full of vitamins and minerals, such as: vitamin C, D, E, iron, magnesium, potassium and sodium. All components that can help support the immune system.
Chaga mushrooms possess a wealth of important vitamins and minerals, which are: Vitamin B1, B2, B3, K and D2.
Also, calcium, chloride, copper, iron, magnesium, natrium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium and zinc.
Besides that, this Chaga Health Elemental Elixir contains the following ingredients:

- Organic Aloe extract (Aloe arborescens)
- Organic Honey
- Organic Pine buds (Pinus sylvestris)
- Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) flower extract

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) (LINK TO BLOG) is one of the most powerful medicinal mushrooms. Chaga contains many polysaccharides/beta-D-glucans (LINK TO BLOG). Chaga also contains the following bioactive compounds:
Superoxide dismutase (SOD)
SOD consists of a group of metalloenzymes known to be powerful antioxidants. SOD can support the body in breaking down harmful oxygen molecules which can prevent permanent tissue damage.
Betulinic AcidBetulinic acid is produced by birch trees and is found in the birch bark. Since Chaga loves the birch tree and often uses it as a host, Chaga absorbs a lot of this betulinic acid. Betulinic acid is a source of antioxidants and is scientifically studied for its possible cancer-inhibiting effects.
The following properties are also attributed to betulinic acid:
High Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) valueThe number of antioxidants in food can be measured and the result of this measurement is expressed as: ORAC value. Does a certain food have a high percentage of antioxidants? Then it automatically has a high ORAC value. Chaga is ranked high in the list of foods with a high ORAC value. For example, the ORAC value of Chaga is 140,000 and the ORAC value of blueberries is 8370. This means that Chaga has a huge number of antioxidants!
