Chaga Mushroom Extraction | Extract | Chaga Tincture

Chaga Vitality Elixir – Builds ‘Jing’ in your body, which translated is “Vitality”.

Using this method of chaga extraction allows you to fully benefit from the full power of the Chaga Mushroom extract, by tapping in to naturally occurring active ingredients that lie within the Chitin layers of its structure, that are not able to be extracted with water alone.
These include, as well as Super Oxide Dismutase, also Triterpenes, Melanins and natural steroid compounds, which have shown in clinical studies to activate biological functionality against various cancer cell lines in vitro AND in vivo.

There is scientific study and anecdotal evidence, confirming that medicinal mushrooms will indeed “Modulate Your Immune Function”. Increase your resistance to seasonal colds, dysbiosis (seasonal sickness) and generally fortify your immunity all year round. We do not want to Boost immune function, nor do we want to Suppress immune function. Instead we want to ‘pick up’ immune function if low, and ‘lower slightly’ an overactive immune function, if too high. This is the foundation of “Modulating Immune Function” using adaptogenic herbs and medicinal mushrooms.

Take Chaga Chunks and add to coffee grinder.

Carefully grind the Chaga into granules  

Add Chaga to Coffee Grinder


Add Ethanol into the Granules, A good grade Vodka or Organic Grape Alcohol can also be used, this jar is 500ml.


Fill as below, store in a dark place for 10 – 11 daysAfter 10 – 11 days, drain off the Alcohol Extraction through a filter medium, either a coffee paper or as shown a strainer (allowing some tiny particles through)


After 10 – 11 days, drain off the Alcohol Extraction through a filter medium, either a coffee paper or as shown a strainer (allowing some tiny particles through)

Add the granules drained as above into 2L filtered water and simmer off until 1L is left.


Pour out the water and granules into a glass bowl and allow to cool


You now have an alcohol extraction (left) and a water extraction (right)


Place the glass bowl into a freezer for 2 days


The result is this, the layers of chitin will have been broken down in order for us to extract the potent chemicals in Chaga mushrooms.


Defrost the Chaga, now add 1L filtered water to this and simmer off again, until approx 1L remains.


Again filter the granules and liquid through a filter medium, either a coffee paper or as shown a strainer (allowing some tiny particles through)

Take your alcohol extraction and separate equally into containers


Take your water extraction and add to the alcohol extractions

Store in a cool dark place, i.e. a cupboard

Frequent Questions

Will I be able to taste the Ethanol?

Not if you add to a Hot tea, Matcha or Coffee, as the Ethanol will evaporate off.

Will I notice immediate results?

The Chaga Extraction works on modulating immune function immediately, it can be subtle, you may notice a reversal of HPV/Skin Warts and other noticeable conditions (anecdotal evidence from users). HPV/Warts is often a sign of a suppressed immunity.

What is an ORAC rating?

Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples in vitro. Chaga has one of the highest ever discovered at a value of 52,000

Why drop the tincture under the tongue?

The reason for placing under the tongue or sublingually is to increase absorption of chaga constituents due to best absorption rate under the tongue.

Do I need to do anything to make the tincture work?

The Chaga tincture is very powerful and can contraindicate some pharmaceutic medications; it can also work subtly in the background. Improving your diet is a good idea anyway, but you don’t need to do anything for it to ‘work’.

What does Chaga actually do for immunity?

Chaga tincture modulates immune function, bringing up a low immune function and reducing an over active immune function according to the scientific data.

Will I get negative effects from taking this tincture?

Chaga and Chaga tinctures have been safely used in China, Russia and northern climates for thousands of years. If you do notice anything different, stop for a week, then reintroduce at a lower dosage to check for effects.

Are there any good scientific papers or articles on this?

There are numerous scientific papers and articles on the effectiveness of Chaga Extract, here is a good one NIH NCBI Gov Website Article

What does it taste like?

Chaga has an earthy flavor and a slight hint of vanilla, bear in mind this more applicable to a water/tea extract of Chaga. It mixes well with chai spices (cardamon, ginger, cloves, anise, fennel, cacao powder, dandelion root, chicory powder etc.)

Why use alcohol or Ethanol?

The reason we use alcohol, heat and cold is to break down the chitin cell wall of Chaga so that we can have full access to the benefits of Chaga. Whilst 180 Proof (90% alcohol ABV) ethanol is the highest edible source of alcohol ethanol that can be safely used, we use a high grade 80 Proof (40% alcohol ABV)

Which part of the Chaga chunks should I use?

Although some sellers of wild harvested Chaga remove the black outer crust, you should request they send some chunks which have the black outer layer, as this contains a lot of the active medicinal mushroom constituents of the Chaga mushroom.

What is the difference between home-made and industrial extraction?

An industrial extraction uses pressure and heat to extract entact Beta Glucans and to break down or melt the chitin layers to release the bio active ingredients locked in. Our process attempts to break down the chitin structure by simmering alcohol soaked powdered chaga and then freezing afterwards, then again reheating.

Do I need to improve my diet for best results?

To increase bio-availability of Chaga, it is best to include good fats in your diet, such as cacao butter, coconut oil, hemp oil due to the complexity of antioxidant bio availability and functioning.

Is normal tap water ok to use?

Try and use either distilled spring water or filtered tap water for best results and a pure product.

Where should I source my Chaga?

We recommend sourcing Chaga raw material from a supplier based in or near to the Siberian North Parallel 61 Deg N – 61st Parallel. As these locations are considered most pristine.
