Chaga Immortality Quest in Liquid Form from SurThrival 1.69fl oz (50ml)
Chaga is unique among medicinal mushrooms as it is known to be one of the most important anti-aging supplements yet discovered. Like all medicinal mushrooms, Chaga contains beta glucans, the non-linear complex polysaccharides that give Chaga extract its potent immune supporting properties.
Chaga extract is commonly known to have an extremely high ORAC value (anti-oxidant properties), even beyond that of blueberry extracts. In fact, Chaga may be the most potent anti-oxidant ever discovered. Immortality Quest Chaga extract is made from wild-crafted mushrooms and is a combination of both hot-water and ethanol extractions.
What is Chaga: Chaga (Inonotus obliquus; Family Hymenochaetaceae) is a parasitic fungus that frequently occurs on members of the birch family (Betulaceae).
Chaga is a parasite of trees, invading the host through a wound. It causes decay of the heartwood and will persist for 10–80 years (or more), producing usually 1–3 sclerotia on the main stem and branches of the tree (Lee at al. 2008). Whereas the sclerotium is perennial, the actual fruiting body occurs only once in the infection cycle and appears as a crust-like layers of pores. The fruiting body is produced on or near the sclerotium after the host or some portion of the host dies. Chaga is connected to the host tree, when the host dies, so does the chaga fungus.

Record of folk use of chaga as a medicinal fungus dates back to the 1500s and 1600s from northern Europe, Poland, and northern Russia. The water extracts were used for a variety of ailments, including stomach disorders, tuberculosis, and disorders of the heart and liver.
