Before continuing you should first read a bit of chaga and all the benefits it can bring in your life overall, and then if you are convinced in what you’ll find out continue with finding the best chaga mushroom products on the market.
Trying to find chaga on the online market is an easy task, but you sure want to find the best product, with all the best reviews and user testimonies that verify the quality and the effect it takes on your health.
First let’s clarify some essentials, like the three main product groups:
- Chaga mushroom extract – also called dual extract, in a form of tinkture, tablet, capsule or powder
- Chaga raw powder / Tea bags
- Chaga dried chunks
- Chaga mushroom extract
The first one is probably the best way to ingest chaga, because as dual extract you will receive all the benefits of chaga, including the water-soluble and non-water-soluble bioactive ingredients, hence called dual. Because the procedure of extraction is somewhat expensive so this product is more expensive than the rest of the product groups. With the tea or chunks you get only the water-soluble components.
Chaga raw powder / Tea bags
Simple, grinded chaga mushroom chunks in a bag, ready for tea. If you look for, you can even find some tea bags that include some dual extract components, and some might be mixed with other tea, like mint or ginseng, all organic, for added flavor. Pure chaga tea can leave a bit of earthy flavor at the bottom of your tongue. Raw powder is also used to produce tincture!
Chaga dried chunks
Just like the description, harvested chaga mushroom chunked into small bits and dried. Just be sure you are looking for raw chunks, not the processed ones, and you can chew them, or make yourself a hot cup of tea, or even a tincture.
Now that you know more about the three different groups, you should find out on what to pay attention when you are choosing your chaga product. The first and primary thing you will be looking at is the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity) score, which on products with better quality is clearly pointed out, and why is this so special. This is the antioxidant potency of the chaga extract, and it is the reason this is called a super-fruit, and why it is so beneficial. Plus, on the back of each product you can find a supplement fact table (similar to nutrition table on the back of each food product), where you will find out most about the product, like whether it is 100% pure organic, non-gmo, no additives, the way it was extracted, % of polysaccharides, Zinc, Selenium and Betulinic Acid. Here you will probably find the place of origin of the chaga mushroom too.
Tested and confirmed, and you can freely choose from any of the down mentioned companies that produce probably the best chaga products on the market, and you can order it online, and have it in your hands in no time.
