This 100-year-old Estonian family recipe came into the hands of Siim Kabrits, founder of Chaga Health and he knew one thing for sure: the world should benefit from this. And so it happened. Traditionally, this elixir was used to support the immune and defense system and it 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 made from Chaga mushrooms and they would simmer on the stove for hours before a dark, almost black liquid remained that was used as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.
Rosehip (Rosa canina)
Rosehip has very high levels of vitamin C: 300/4000 mg per 100 grams. This can offer a supportive effect on the immune system. Rosehip also has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
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.
Apple concentrate (Malus domestica)
Made from freshly harvested, organic apples grown in Estonia. You know what they say: "An apple a day, keeps the doctor away...".
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 Immuno Elixir – Chaga and Rosehip contains the following ingredients:
- Wild harvested Estonian Organic Chaga - extract (48%)
- Organic rosehip (Rosa canina) puree (38.2%)
- Organic apple concentrate 12% (Malus domestica),
- Organic Pine buds (Pinus sylvestris)
- Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) flower extract
- Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) 200mg/per 50 ml daily serving
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 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) value
The 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!
