      1. How to find good quality chaga?

        How not to buy Chaga counterfeits?

        Unfortunately, low-quality or fake chaga products are often sold on the market. This undermines the image of responsible manufacturers. At a conference at the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague, an analysis of chagа extract from Siberia, China, and Finland was performed to examine the quality of chaga. The results stated that the extracts from China and Finland were counterfeit, while the extracts from the Siberian chaga were of the highest quality.The fact is that even the Chinese prefer the Siberian chaga, considering it the most useful.There are 9 lifehacks to buy quality chaga products:

        1) wild chaga can't be cheap;2) it is best to buy chaga directly from manufacturers, who control the entire process from assembly to packaging and sale;3) the availability of certificates does not guarantee a high quality of chaga, since they only state that the product is not contaminated, but they do not indicate the content of the active substances;4) make sure that the products are made from fresh whole chaga and not from leftovers;5) pay attention to the photo on the package, because there are sellers who put other mushrooms on the photo;6) chaga is packed in a metallized bag that keeps all the beneficial properties;7) the best quality has the Siberian wild chaga, but not grown on compost;8) the manufacturer is a real pro who uses low-temperature processing technology;9) check the place where the chaga was collected according to the seller. Sometimes looking at a map of these places you will not find large areas of birch forests. This can only mean one thing - chaga was harvested illegally in other regions. Poachers can damage trees, and do not adhere to storage and handling standards. Chaga Laboratories never harvests chaga illegally. Siberian chaga is a medicinal plant, so the state monitors its collection and sale. Our company supports only the legal harvesting of chaga, we collect chaga only in the selected territory of Siberian forests, which are protected by environmental and forest legislation. We employ specially trained certified hunter hunters who adhere to all procurement and processing standards for further export.
