Chaga and reishi are two of the most well known medicinal mushrooms, each providing a host of health benefits, and complementing each other well. This tincture is a mixture of 50% chaga double extraction tincture and 50% reishi double extraction tincture, giving you all the benefits of both chaga and reishi in one bottle.
Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is a fungus that predominantly grows on birch trees in cold northern forests. It is high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, and has been used for its detoxifying and healing properties for centuries. Chaga is an adaptogen, helping to normalize and balance body functions. It is known to have immune-boosting and anti-tumor effects, and has been used to treat skin conditions and respiratory disorders, to help control metabolic disorders, to fight ulcers and gastritis, stimulate digestion and reduce blood sugar.
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) is known as the "mushroom of immortality" as it has long been considered to promote longevity and a healthy immune system. Called Ling Zhi in China, it has been used medicinally for thousands of years, and is probably the most well known and beneficial medicinal mushroom. Reishi is an antioxidant, an immune system enhancer, has anti-inflammatory properties and helps relieve anxiety and depression. It is reported to promote heart health and balance blood pressure, help the body fight allergies as well as defend itself against tumor growth and cancer.
The reishi used to make this tincture was grown by me without chemicals and the chaga used to make this tincture was wild harvested by me here in northern Vermont.
Some of the medicinal compounds of reishi and chaga mushrooms need to be extracted using alcohol, and some need to be extracted using water. Both alcohol and water extractions were used to make this tincture, making it a double extraction tincture that contains both the alcohol-soluble and water-soluble medicinal properties of chaga and reishi mushrooms. It was made with spring water and grain alcohol and contains approximately 25% alcohol.
