CHAGA Presentation : CHAGA Presentation What makes Chaga special? : What makes Chaga special? To understand the value of Chaga you must do two things. Research it’s rich history as a traditional medicine. Examine the amazing number of complex compounds identified within the Chaga. Description: Of Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) : Description: Of Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) Chaga is a spore fungus found in scarce patches throughout several provinces in Canada. The oddly shaped mushroom has a cracked blackened surface and a dark brown inner layer. The mushroom is very hard most of the year and is shaped like a knot on the side of trees. In rare cases it can grow to be over 2 feet in diameter. General Overview : General Overview Chaga is know world wide as “the king of herbs”. As a traditional medicine it is used for a wide variety of ailments but like all traditional medicines it can be hard to identify facts from fiction. This power point is designed to help interested customers better understand the claims and compounds associated with chaga. Chaga is FDA approved for human consumption. Resaerch : Resaerch Scientific research regarding the effects of chaga have centered around its common folk uses. Over 1400 modern scientific publications indicate these compounds could offer solutions to fight virus and fungus diseases, stimulate the central nervous system, delay growth of tumor and cancer cells, lower white blood cell counts, lower arterial and venous blood pressure, decrease sugar levels, improve skin color and elasticity, restore youthful looks and detoxify the liver, kidney, and spleen to name a few. Part 1 : Part 1 Potential uses of Chaga and the related research into the development of Chaga for pharmaceutical, nutraceuticals and Cosmetic products. Pharmaceutical Related Chaga Research : Pharmaceutical Related Chaga Research HIV Herpes and other skin disorders Anti-Tumor Agent Several types of Cancer TB of bone Lowering Blood pressure traditional uses as a herbal medicine : traditional uses as a herbal medicine Gastritis Ulcers Digestive system Blood pressure Urinary track system Bronchitis TB of bone Asthma Skin eczemas Longevity Nutraceutical & Cosmetic potential : Nutraceutical & Cosmetic potential There are a many active compounds within Chaga that show strong benefits for the nutraceutical and cosmetic industry. Two very interesting groups are SOD’s and Betulin derivatives which are discussed in more detail in part 2 of our presentation. Betulin: immune booster and skin care SOD’s: anti-aging and immune booster Part 2 : Part 2 Details of the different properties and their benefits. List of know compounds : List of know compounds Chaga contains 215 phytonutrients including 29 polysaccharide or beta glucan derivatives Includes heteroglucans, triterpenes, sterols, anti-oxidants, saponins, amino acids, trace minerals, vitamins, dietary fibers combining together in complex integrated compounds to enhance the immune and hormonal system. Phytochemicals : Phytochemicals Chaga also contains the full spectrum of immune-stimulating phytochemicals found in other medicinal mushrooms such as maitake mushroom and shiitake mushroom. Phytochemicals are sometimes referred to as phytonutrients; these terms are often used interchangeably. In broad terms, they are said to be any chemical or nutrient derived from a plant source. However, in common usage, they have a more limited definition. They are usually used to refer to compounds found in plants that are not required for normal functioning of the body but that nonetheless have a beneficial effect on health or an active role in the amelioration of disease. Thus, they differ from what are traditionally termed nutrients in that they are not a necessity for normal metabolism, and their absence will not result in a deficiency disease -- at least not on the timescale normally attributed to such phenomena. A minority claim that many of the diseases afflicting the people of industrialized nations are the result of those people's lack of phytonutrients in their diet. What is beyond dispute is that phytonutrients have many and various salubrious functions in the body. For example, they may promote the function of the immune system, act directly against bacteria and viruses, reduce inflammation, and be associated with the treatment and/or prevention of cancer, cardiovascular disease and any other malady affecting the health or well-being of an individual. [] triterpenes : triterpenes Chaga is rich in triterpenes. The main compounds are lanosterol-type triterpenes related to inotodiol. Other compounds isolated from Chaga include betulin, polysaccharides, and soluble lignins. Triterpenes frequently exhibit bioactivity as antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial. These products are typically white to off white crystalline solids that are slightly soluble in non-polar solvents. Water solubility of these compounds is enhanced when they are first dissolved in dimethyl sulfoxide or other solvents.  Because triterpenes are available from birch bark in significant amounts, many of these compounds may be economically viable in a number of applications. [] Triterpenoids and sterols promote good blood circulation and assist to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol (LDL) Anti-oxidant : Anti-oxidant Chaga has the highest reported ORAC score in natural foods or oils (Anti-oxidant levels are measured in ORAC, which stand for Oxygen Radical Absorbent Capacity). Free oxygen radicals are formed in our body from normal daily living which includes electricity, pollution, sun exposure and various other unavoidable circumstances. These free radicals bounce around our body, beating up on our cell structure and organs, making us more susceptible to diseases and the effects of aging.

Betulinic acid has been researched and can be used for/to Melanoma cancer, hinder HIV infections, anti tumor activity, herpes, cosmetics, TB of bone, eczema and other skin conditions. Betulinic acid is classified as a pentacyclic triterpene. Note: only found in Chaga growing on White Birch trees. SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase) : SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase) Chaga, unlike the other medicinal mushrooms contains an exceptional amount of SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase) content. SOD is one of the most important anti-oxidants in our body. SOD decreases as we age. Living well and exercising keep levels up. Chaga has far more SOD than Vitamins C, E and super foods like barley grass, seaweed prunes, fish oils, and many aromatherapy essential oils. SOD content in Chaga is exceptional: over 35,000 units/gm verses other mushrooms. Agaricus: 1500 Lingzhi: 630 Truffles: 860 Phellintus Linteus: 1400 (Source: Dept of Health, Food Res Center, Japan) SOD’s are used in/for skin creams, burns, wounds, inflammation. SOD’s are enzymes that keep our cell membranes supple and healthy. Research indicates it can be used for arthritis and side effects of cancer treatment. List of steroids : List of steroids Lanosterols for anti bacteria, candidas, cholesterol Trametenolic acid for non insulin dependent diabetics Ergosterols for anti-oxidant therapy and cancer drugs. Chaga: 35.3 mg per gram versus Agaricus: 3.8 mg per gram (a ten fold difference) Inotodiol for influenza virus A & B Beta Glucan g <13 : Beta Glucan g <13 Mushroom cell walls contain a multiple number of beta glucans that are interlinked to proteins, amino acids, anti-oxidants etc. Chaga has 29 beta factions. Beta-D Glucans trigger and stimulate many immune responses to fight against infections: Activate microphage,T-helper, NK cells, B cells. All of these increase the production of antibodies. Beta glucans do not attack deficient/cancer cells directly Macrophages are a kind of white blood cell that “eat up” pathogens such as bacteria, yeast cells, virus infected cells. Reside throughout the mucous membranes, ie. digestive, urinary and respiratory tracts. Polysaccharides stimulate this protective shield. Part 3 : Part 3 Chaga as a Tea and in other forms. Methods in which Chaga can be utilized : Methods in which Chaga can be utilized Chaga can be extracted 7 or more times under stringent vacuum and low temperature conditions. Each extraction leaches out different proteins/heteroglucans because of its thick cell membrane walls. This technique is too difficult to do for home use (instead it is recommend to extract 3 times with hot water) Pills or capsules are the modern world’s approach for the busy individual. However oral concoctions reach trillions of tissue cells which makes it the best way to ingest (meaning tea) Cosmetic creams and lotions are used for reducing the affects of aging. CHAGA DIRECTIONS FOR USE : CHAGA DIRECTIONS FOR USE Add Chaga granules to an empty container (glass or porcelain is best). Add one liter of boiled water Soak for 12 to 24 hours allowing active ingredients to slowly extract into the liquid portion. Mixture turns to light brown tea color. DO NOT BOIL CHAGA. Drink first cup 20 minutes before breakfast. Drink remaining liquid throughout the day. Chaga is NOT BITTER DO NOT throw away the residue grinds. Repeat process twice more by refilling boiled water and soak again for 12 or more hours. Hence 1 serving is very economical Chaga Mushroom Safety Information : Chaga Mushroom Safety Information Chaga Mushroom is regarded as safe when taken in the recommended doses. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known and therefore not recommended . Chaga Mushroom comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. The best way to use chaga is by drinking it as a hot tea. Chaga tea is used in the eastern Europe, China, Japan and Russia folk medicine for a wide treatment of ailments including gastritis, ulcers, tuberculosis and Cancer. Recent studies have shown that it has a very high anti-oxidant compounds. The FDA has recommended that people should increase their anti-oxidant consumption to 7000 ORAC units a day to help lower their risk of Cancer. CHAGA HAS MINIMAL SIDE EFFECTS : CHAGA HAS MINIMAL SIDE EFFECTS Chaga has demonstrated no side effects and no toxicity effects. However for first time users, there is a strong probability of excessive bowel movements in the first 6 to 18 hours after the initial consumption. This symptom clears up. This just Indicates that the body is detoxifying. Furthermore, after excessive alcohol or shellfish intake, a majority of people notice similar cleansing effects. Chaga can be used in conjunction with most pharmacology drugs and with chemo or radiation therapy. Speak with you doctor first.
