Biochaga - freeze-dried extracts.

Company Baikal Herbs Ltd is manufacturing a wide variety of plant and herb extracts produced exclusively from wild-grown raw materials, such as wild mushrooms, berries, herbs and plants growing in the Russian Siberia taiga. We manufacture dry powder extracts from multiple raw materials, for example from rosehip berries, reishi mushroom, Agaricus mushroom, ginseng, Siberian ginseng, Rhodiola Rosea roots, Leusea roots, etc.


However, one of the most popular extracts today is a freeze-dried Chaga mushroom extract. All extracts presented on this website are freeze-dried water-soluble powders. Our Chaga extract is particularly well known in Korea and Japan but also is gaining popularity among health-minded people in EU and USA. And we are proud to say that the quality of our extracts is considered superior.

What is biochaga.

Biochaga is a mushroom which has preserved its original properties laid in them by nature even after having been processed into the powdered extract.

Few people are aware of the fact that Chaga tea available in the majority of shops cannot be called biochaga. It is all about the ability of our body to utilize and digest health-supporting Chaga mushroom substances. Dried Chaga if eaten raw will not be digested because our body lacks a special enzyme called chitinase. This ferment is necessary to help our body to break open the chitin cells from which all mushrooms consist, including Chaga mushroom. So the trick is to convert an indigestible form of Chaga into digestible form. It can be only achieved by applying the process called extraction, using hot water or alcohol as solvents.  Both methods can be used for breaking through the walls of chitin molecule thus providing access to bio digestive substances of Chaga. However, these substances differ depending on which solvent agent had been used: water or alcohol.

Chaga extract in 100g bagsMost of the plant extracts available in stores and specialized shops today do not correlate with the definition "bio". In most cases these extracts are available in tablets and capsules and usually manufactured from thermally processed cheap raw materials. Also, according to our estimation, about 90% of all known to us food supplements contain fillers and colorants. In respect of their health-supporting value, such products are "dead".

We know firsthand that the real "Bio" product can be created only when the following conditions have been observed:

1. Raw materials are "alive" and of high quality. By saying "alive" we mean that the plants and herbs had been picked only from wild nature and not grown on farms or in laboratories. Such high-quality plants and herbs are rich in microelements, macronutrients, vitamins and possess biologically active substances attributable to these species. For example, Chaga mushroom cultivated artificially doesn't contain the most important Сhaga substance: chromogenic complex. Moreover, Chaga picked from the European part of Russia doesn't possess the same high level of health-supporting elements as Chaga collected in Siberia.

2. High-quality food supplements should be manufactured on modern equipment. Manufacturing of sublimated (freeze-dried) extracts is a rather complicated process and requires advanced equipment.

3. "Know-how". Our experts are in the possession of a secret "formula" that allows them to create our premium quality freeze-dried Chaga extract. To our knowledge, today there are no rivals in this regard. The quality of the extract is perfect and cannot be replicated without the knowledge of "know-how".

Taking into account the above-mentioned reasons, it becomes obvious that the real "bio" products cannot be cheap.

Baikal Herbs Ltd's Chaga extract is called "biochaga" also because it has not undergone any high-temperature thermal processing so chaga's DNA molecule remained undamaged. 

Freeze-dried Chaga extract instantly solves in water and is quickly digested by the human body. As a result, you receive a powerful inflow of antioxidants which immediately starts to fight free radicals hereby essentially improving your health. As you may know, the free radicals are the adverse electrons which cause damage to healthy cells causing premature aging and diseases, including cancer and diabetes.

Apart from Chaga extract we also manufacture mixed powdered extracts made from wild-grown reishi, Siberian ginseng, rosehip, Rhodiola, Agaricus and other.

Baikal Herbs Ltd's Chaga extract "EcoZvet-Bio".

Chaga extract "EcoZvet-Bio" is a non-toxic product. It doesn't have any side effects and is not addictive. Health supportive properties of Chaga can be visible already after 7-14 days of regular consumption or earlier.


Freeze-dried Chaga extract produced by Baikal Herbs Ltd has been tested in Brunswick Laboratory (USA) for its ability to fight free radicals. The result was impressive. The report of this test, called ORAC certificate can be found here.

The reason for extremely high content of antioxidants in the Chaga mushroom is the chromogenic complex (Chaga acids and melanin). Our Chaga extract contains more than 57% of chromogenic complex content! No other known mushroom has this particular set of acids which makes wildcrafted Chaga a unique mushroom. In appearance, the real freeze-dried Chaga extract has one distinguishing feature: glistening crystals, you can see them on the picture.

Thus by purchasing Chaga products from our company you can be confident that you are getting products of unsurpassed quality, made purely from wild-grown Chaga mushroom harvested in ecologically clean forests of Russian Siberia (Irkutsk region, Altai and Khakassia).
