Chaga mushrooms grow in the forests of Northern Siberia, Northern Canada, Northern Japan and the Northeastern United States. Like all medicinal mushrooms Chaga contains the beta glucan rich polysaccharides that give medicinal mushroom extracts their potent immune supporting properties.However, Chaga also has other active compounds, primarily betulinic acids, that give Chaga extracts powerful anti-oxidant properties. Chaga has an extremely high ORAC score (measurement of antioxidant properties), similar to that of blueberry extracts. Chaga also has melanin compounds that may nourish the skin and hair. In addition to its potent immune stimulating properties Chaga has an extremely high value as an antioxidant. The ORAC value of the MushroomScience Chaga extract was higher than green or black tea extracts and was similar to that of blueberry extracts. The anti-oxidant properties are attributed to an active compound unique to Chaga fruit bodies, a triterpene called betulinic acid.
