"Diamond of the forest", "Nature's black gold", "The gift from god"... just a few of the names Chaga goes by.
Chaga is one of the most highly regarded fungi and has been used in many baltic countries for hundreds of years. Chaga thrives in colder climates in the Northern Hemisphere and grows as a black hardened mass exclusively on Birch trees, boasting a beautiful deep golden colour inside.
Chaga is thought to have the highest antioxidant capacity of any functional mushroom and contains many bioactive compounds such as inotodiol and betulin.
This Double Liquid Extract Flavouring is alcohol based and engineered in Lifecykel's labs in Australia and USA using a unique double extraction process. They are full spectrum which means that both the mushroom fruiting bodies and the mycelium are used in the extraction process to create a well-rounded, high quality product.
Infused with Australian Native Kakadu Plum, known to have the highest content of Vitamin C gram for gram than any other fruit in the world.
The Chaga is wild harvested in forests in North America. This the highest quality Chaga products on the market today. Lifecykel's friend on the ground is very passionate about the forests and they trust that he will never over-harvest the wild Chaga to ensure that the ecosystem will stay in balance and harmony.

Lifecykel's liquid extracts are 1:2 which means that 1kg of mushroom material is used to make 2L of liquid extract. The liquid extracts are made using a double extraction method (water and alcohol based). This double liquid extract ensures that both water soluble compounds (mainly polysaccharides like beta-glucans) and alcohol soluble compounds (mainly antioxidants such as triterpenoids) are present in the end product and bioavailable for the consumer. They use both fruiting bodies, primordia and mycelium to ensure that the entire life cycle of the mushrooms full spectrum is in the end product.
The liquid extracts are purified using pharmaceutical grade equipment which results in a clear purified colour. This differs from other companies extracts, which are made without purification steps, resulting in a more pigmented extract with a strong pungent flavour that is not palatable. Extracts are made from 70% of purified water extract and 30% of alcohol extract purified extract combined together.
