Real Experiences of Wild Chaga
The trusted ,highly potent source of Wild Siberian Chaga from Wild Pharmacy is now one of my top 2 essentials in my food cupboard as a multi-dimensional aid to the demands of modern living !
Chaga has really helped with my digestion and sleep. I am taking Chaga now in a medicinal manner - when I feel the need for some physical or spiritual support.
I have been taking Chaga now for two weeks and have noticed a big improvement in quality of sleep and better digestion.
Since taking Chaga as a coffee substitute - which has a great flavour without any other additions - my wife has noticed that I am far more likely to react positively to a stressful situation. I have also noticed that I am sleeping more deeply; this has been the situation for around the last two weeks, which is when I started on Chaga. Heartily recommend Chaga!
I feel good after my chaga drink. It seems to clear my head in some way - makes me feel sharp. I'll endeavor to have two cups a day from now on.
I was drawn to chaga for physical health reasons but actually found that it precipitated what felt like a subtle shift in consciousness. I found myself slightly removed from the daily dramas of life, This led to what I can only describe as an inner giggling!

I got a Nutribullet for Christmas, and in January decided to go for my 5-a-day. I’d seen a lot of recipes that recommended flax seeds and all sorts of pulses and grains as a healthy natural detox, and my partner had heard about Chaga so I tried that as well. As an additive, along with chia seeds and wheatgrass powder, Chaga gives you a real morning energy boost. It’s also very high in antioxidants so it’s very cleansing. It’s part of my daily routine now and I feel a lot healthier in my skin, digestion and energy levels... especially after hitting the booze and chocolates hard over Christmas and New Year.
To be honest I’m pretty skeptical about superfoods in general, I always think a balanced diet should be enough for decent health. However, like many people who think that I also drink too much coffee and alcohol, and eat pizza. I’ve also suffered with insomnia for years, ever since my children were babies, my sleep never really recovered. I tried Chaga (it was recommended to me by the team at Wild Pharmacy) and it pretty much cured the insomnia straight away. I had a teaspoon in hot water, like a large espresso, about an hour before bed and it worked a treat. I’d recommend it.
Chaga is supportive on so many levels, physically, mentally and emotionally. This amazing Super food was life changing for me. Chaga seems to have the ability to balance your systems where needed and rid the body of inflammation. This is powerful medicine under natural law.
I don't do chaga often but when I do maybe once a week as a coffee, I love it. It Energises me and also grounds me, it has an earthy quality and taste too despite it's cosmic appearance. I Love the Latte with coconut sugar too!
I am loving the Chaga. My evening cuppa has become a bit of a ritual. So simple to make – I drink mine with hot water, honey, cocoa, pinch of salt, and sprinkle of cinnamon. It tastes delish and looks divine. I never imagined it would be so sparkly – this stuff really is amazing!
Really surprised with the flavour of chaga extract with milk. Tastes very similar to coffee without the bitter side of it
100% Wild Harvested Siberian Chaga Extract
Our Wild Chaga is harvested from the unspoilt Siberian wilderness in the Northern Irkutsk area of Russia. Temperatures can reach -50 which is perfect for Chaga to grow in. Wild Chaga grows on Silver birch trees, concentrating the rich nutrients from trees, creating a powerful healing synergy between mushroom and tree. With the struggle to survive in such harsh conditions, much like the Siberian people, the Chaga and the birch tree are unique in their ability to adapt to such a cold climate. Our Wild Chaga is full of light energy; bathed and energised in solar winds and imbued with clear, strong sunlight from the unpolluted sky making our wild Chaga raw, organic, potent and full of Life Force.
For centuries indigenous Siberian tribes have used Chaga as a food; in stews, soups and drinks; a medicinal nutritious tonic; kindling for fire starting and a treatment for skin. Where Wild Chaga is drunk there is a lower incidence of cancer and people look much younger and live much longer, some over a 100!.
Since the 12th Century Russian chronicles have documented the fortifying and purifying properties of Chaga. Ever since then Siberians have continued to praise its many healing properties calling Chaga “A Gift form God”.
Siberian Wild Chaga
Wild Pharmacy work one of the biggest manufacturers of Chaga in Russia for over 20 years.
They only use wild grown chaga direct form source and the parts of the chaga with the highest concentration of biologically active nutrients. We found that our wild chaga extract had the greatest life force compared with other chaga on the market and with the highest chromogenic complex value.
100% wildgrown, wild harvested Siberian Chaga extract-nothing else. Sustainably sourced, perfectly crafted and extracted.
Why choose Wild Chaga Extract over Chaga tea?
In order to benefit from all the incredible nutrients Wild Chaga contains, the wild harvested chaga mushroom has to undergo a process of extraction.
Water is used for extraction and for every 1kg of concentrated premium chaga extract we use 8kg of wild chaga. Only chaga that grows on birch in the wild has the raw therapeutic potency to provide health benefits to humanity:
100 % pure wild chaga grown in the untamed wild birch forests of Siberia.
Raw chaga chunks on the other hand cannot be absorbed by the body and chaga tea although supporting overall health does not have the therapeutic power and not enough concentration of the biologically active nutrients that our Wild Chaga extract has.
The black diamond chaga extract that is created becomes biologically active due to the concentration and release of nutrients, which can then be easily absorbed by the body to provide its health benefits.
Extraction releases the Antioxidant power of Chaga giving our Wild Chaga an incredibly high ORAC score of 39,979
In addition our Wild Chaga has the highest Chromogenic complex value of 57% which is the most important indicator of the quality of the chaga.
This is Premium grade Chaga Extract.
