Yes. It has much more biologically active substances than Chaga harvested in other areas. This can be proved by the certificate of analysis.
Chaga tea is a dried and ground Chaga mushroom. When infused correctly the tea acquires a pleasant taste and some health-supporting properties. But the concentration of biologically active substances in this drink is not significant. On the other hand, Chaga extract is a highly concentrated powder produced by hot water extraction.
This extract powder is full of antioxidants and is very popular among health-minded people.
Yes, if taken in the recommended amount.
Siberian Chaga extract is not a medicine. It is currently classified as a dietary food supplement. We recommend to conduct your own research and explore multiple studies done in different countries here.

We collect our Chaga from Russian Eastern Siberia taiga forests, Altai mountains, Tomsk region, Northern Irkutsk region and Khakassia. These are the areas with winter temperatures as low as -50 degrees Celcius. These huge areas are very thinly populated and have no industries around. The lack of industries and harsh climate conditions make our Chaga ecologically clean and full of healthy phytonutrients.
Our Chaga is handpicked from wildcrafted birch trees growing in the wilderness of Siberian taiga of Russia.
Our Chaga extract is produced with water extraction method.
We don't do it. First, there is not much to extract from Chaga by alcohol. They say they are obtaining lots of betulin or even betulinic acid from Chaga with the dual extraction. This is not true because even wildcrafted Chaga mushroom contains a very tiny amount of betulin. Let alone artificially cultivated Chaga which contain neither betulin nor melanin. The main ingredient of Chaga is melanin (chromogenic complex) - and it can be derived only from wild Chaga mushroom and only by water.
Secondly, the insignificant amount of betulin that can be drawn from Chaga by alcohol is not worth the cost.
Thirdly, if Chaga was not collected from a wild birch tree and the extract had not been freeze-dried - all the talking about extraction methods doesn't make any sense. So instead of searching for some fancy extraction methods, make sure the raw material comes from the right place and the dehydration process was not done with the application of the heat.
Chaga mushroom doesn't contain any betulinic acid at all. It doesn't exist in natural form in Chaga or anywhere else. In order to produce any amount of betulinic acid, a highly purified betulin should be processed. And all this process is too expensive to consider mass production.

Our Chaga extract is made from 100% Siberian Chaga mushroom. As well as any organic product Chaga has its chemical composition which consists of many different substances (polysaccharides, Beta-glucans, polyphenols, flavonoids, trace elements, vitamins, and minerals). But only wild-grown Chaga mushroom contains chromogenic complex – a set of humic acids and melanin which makes Chaga so powerful. Raw Chaga possesses only 15-18% of Chromogenic complex content, whereas good Chaga extract should have a minimum of 45%. The amount of melanin in our Chaga extract is more than 57%!
