ORIVeDA Chaga supplement facts label

Which medicinal mushroom is the best?

Medicinal mushrooms seem like small miracles - their therapeutic properties seem to cover almost the full spectrum of human health and well-being. And this is not exaggerated. The majority of antibiotics, several chemo-therapeutic agents, most anti-cholesterol medication (statins) and some anti-HIV medication are based on fungi. Cyclosporin, a drug without which organ transplants would be impossible, is derived from a fungus as well. And so on.

In fact, most mushrooms have only been researched for a small number of therapeutic applications. The chart below gives an indication of the existing research results of the therapeutic properties that were investigated so far.


Please take notice: 'immune balancing' covers a lot of health problems, including many allergies and auto-immune related diseases. These have not been listed separately. This overview is also not complete - we will update it and refine it when more data becomes available.


Be aware of the fact that if a property is left blank for a particular mushroom this only means that this property so far has not been investigated in depth.

overview of positive results achieved with medicinal mushroom extracts as sold by ORIVeDA

These results have all been achieved with extracted mushroom products (extraction using e.g. hot water, ethanol, methanol, fermentation or combinations of these) - they are not applicable to biomass or un-extracted, dried and powdered mushroom products or tinctures. Check our FAQ for the reason why.

Why choose a Chaga product ?

Science has been researching Chaga for decades. Below we've listed their main subjects***.
Take notice: this list should not be interpreted as a list of therapeutic claims! For a very extensive background (history, science, future and more) click here  ( page opens in new window ).

  • • Immune-modulating potential

    A shared property of all medicinal mushrooms is said to be immune-modulation: research has been investigating their potential to normalize our natural resistance against diseases for many decades. Although undeniable proof has not yet been presented the outcome of research is promising.

    In particular water-soluble beta-glucans triggered the interest of scientists: in the EU several health-claims based on beta-glucans have been ratified in the past years by the EFSA. Beta-glucans are e.g. thought to help with immune support and with normalizing of cholesterol levels.

    Given that our immune system is the foundation of our health this is a very important subject - allergies, infections, auto-immune diseases and many old-age problems are all immune related.

    Two terms are worth mentioning here: adaptogenic (helping our body to adapt to the never-ending assaults on our health) and BRM (a natural Biological Response Modifier - helps to normalize the body's natural defense mechanisms without any side effects). These terms are keywords when describing medicinal mushrooms. Medicinal mushrooms do not cure or heal, but they help the body to perform at its best.

    Some people have the idea one should avoid mushrooms in case of fungal infections like candida. This is not true, in fact it's the opposite. Have a look at this blog where someone suffering from Candida infection used Chaga and claims it was succesfull.
  • • Anti-inflammatory, anti-viral properties

    These properties are of course linked to the immune-modulating potential. Responsible for these properties are most likely the beta-glucans found in Chaga. Beta-glucans are a type of polysaccharides.

    Harmful micro-organisms, bacteria and viruses should be neutralized by the immune system before they can cause infections and inflammations. Existing infections etc. will last considerably shorter if the immune system is functioning at its peak level.

    Apart from that, betulinic acid (an important component of Chaga) is currently being researched in several countries for its anti-HIV potential. Unfortunately betulinic acid has a very low 'bio-availability'; the body has trouble absorbing it. The often seen claims that 'Chaga contains a bioavailable form of betulinic acid' are unfortunately unfounded. For additional information visit our 'resources' page. <

    Oriveda Chaga contains over 50% of polysaccharides (at least 39% of which are ß-D-glucans) and over 2.5% of betulinic acid.
  • • Anti-ulcer, anti-gastritis properties

    In folk medicine Chaga was used often to battle gastritis and related gastrointestinal problems.

    Again, the immune modulating potential of Chaga plays an important role here, both in treating and prevention of these problems, but betulinic acid and the phytosterols present in Chaga might also play a role.

    Stress e.g. can have a devastating effect on the metabolism, and is known to contribute to the development of ulcers because of its negative effect on the immune system. Most ulcers are caused by bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori. A well functioning immune system will be able to deal with this pathogen. If the old folk medicine was right, Chaga can help to make sure your immune system will be operating at its optimal level at all times.
  • • Its potential as an anti-cancer adjuvant

    Chaga has been used a lot in combination with standard cancer treatments such as chemo-therapy and radiation. There are claims stating it can compensate the devastating effect these treatments have on our immune system. If these claims are justified Chaga might aid in preventing metastasis (cancer cells traveling through the bloodstream should be neutralized by the immune system before they can cause harm). Chaga might be able to significantly contribute to the quality of life during and after treatment this way.

    Furthermore, some research is focusing on Chaga itself as having a direct anti-cancer potential. The betulinic acid and some of the phytosterols present are thought to have the ability to kill cancer cells directly. How this is supposed to work exactly is the subject of several theories. So far, no clinical trials have been performed and all research has been performed on animals and in the lab.
  • • Anti-oxidant properties, revitalizing, anti-aging potential

    Our ORIVEDA extract includes the sclerotium ( the black outside layer ) of the Chaga conk. This is important, because this sclerotium contains a massive amount of a specific fungi-melanin, giving our extract a very high level of anti-oxidants. Research has linked anti-oxidants to DNA-regenerating and re-vitalizing properties. Assuming this is justified, the whole body will benefit from this; your organs will function better and because of this you will look and feel better.

    Antioxidant power is often expressed in an ORAC-value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity).
    The ORAC-value Certificate of Analysis (COA) issued by Brunswick Labs indicates 146,700 µmole TE p/100 grams, putting our Chaga extract in the top 10 of anti-oxidants right away. As far as we know it's also the highest level ever found in a Chaga product. The COA is available on request.

    Oriveda's Chaga extract has the highest ORAC score in its league - verifiable!
    Check this graph for a comparison with other 'super-foods'.

  • • The effect on cholesterollevels and the cardiovascular system

    In vitro research showed betulinic acid (a compound unique to Chaga) to be able to break down 'bad' cholesterol. Unfortunately betulinic acid has a very low 'bio-availability'; the body has trouble absorbing it. The often seen claims that 'Chaga contains a bioavailable form of betulinic acid' are unfounded, although there are theories that a synergetic effect is taking place.

    The beta-glucans, part of the polysaccharides in Chaga might also have a positive effect on cholesterol levels; as said before in the EU such health claims have been ratified by the EFSA. A healthy balance between LDL (bad) and HDL (good) cholesterol helps with high blood pressure and promotes a healthy cardio-vascular system: less plaque, stronger arteries.

    Oriveda Chaga contains 2 % - 3 % of betulinic acid and ± 28 % of bioactive pure beta-glucans (most recent lab report).
  • • The effect on psoriasis symptoms

    Psoriasis is basically an auto-immune disease. In the early 70s a case study was performed in the USSR, investigating the effect of a traditional Chaga preparation (Befungin ®) on psoriasis symptoms. We have translated this case study into English.
    The full article is available for download in our 'resources' section.

    One of our clients started a blog with day-to-day pictures of his battle against psoriasis, using a combination of healthy food and Oriveda Chaga. His blog can be found here.
  • • Side effects and contra indications

    Chaga extracts have no noteworthy side effects at all. The lack of side effects is due to the fact that Chaga extracts work mainly in an indirect way: as a natural BRM (a Biological Response Modifier - stimulating the body's natural defense mechanisms).

    There is no potential disturbance of the body's chemical and hormonal balance. This makes medicinal mushrooms extracts like Chaga the ideal dietary supplements for everybody.

    The only contra-indications are immune suppressing medicines (e.g. after a transplant). Never use medicinal mushroom extracts together with this type of medication - the immune modulating potential might neutralize its workings.

    There are also reports that Chaga extracts might increase the risk of hypoglycemia (blood sugar levels that fall too low) in people that are sensitive to that, such as those taking diabetes medicines like insulin. Taking it together with some sugar-containing beverage such as fresh juice will help.

Why choose the ORIVeDA Chaga extract ?

Scientific research uses in general specialized, highly concentrated extracts to investigate the potential of medicinal mushrooms. ORIVeDA extracts are comparable in both composition and quality, so the research results you read about you can also expect from our products.


ORIVeDA Chaga is not only the most potent Chaga extract commercially available but also the only fully certified extract worldwide, with guaranteed levels of bio-active ingredients.

more details...

In Chaga those ingredients are mainly the polysaccharides (i.p. the beta-glucans) and the betulinic acid. We can guarantee the presence and the percentage of these components.
According to research* the average amount of beta-glucans in Chaga is around 10-14%.
Our extract contains what must be the absolute maximum: over 20 % of (1>3)(1>6) beta-D-glucans were found, meaning over 40 % of the polysaccharides are powerful beta-glucans**. ( All beta-glucans are polysaccharides, but not all polysaccharides are beta-glucans!)

The bioavailability of these components is perfect. Recommended dosage 3 caps p/day. A leaflet with detailed instructions and background is included with every order.

The Certificates of Analysis (CoA) are for those that wish to verify our claims. Click here to see our official 'Supplement Facts' back label.

Extracted using a combination of hot water (for polysaccharides / ß-glucans) and ethanol extraction (for sterols, betulinic acid, triterpenoids etc.).
