Mushroom Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is also known as the "king of mushrooms", the "diamond of the forest" or the "mushroom of immortality". It grows in the northern hemisphere, especially on birch trees.
Like other medicinal mushrooms, it contains several hundred biologically active substances with a very wide range of beneficial effects on the human body. Probably the most famous of these are betaglucans, which harmonize our immune system.
The chaga used in Instant Four Sigmatic has been grown wild and sourced from uninhabited areas of Siberia to ensure the best quality. It is a great choice for anyone who wants to support the body's defenses.
Who can take this drink
- those who want to strengthen their health
- those who want to boost physical stamina
- those looking for an alternative to coffee
Traditional uses of chaga
In Siberian folk medicine, it has been used to detoxify and relieve nausea as well as a tonic to strengthen the body.
Russian folk medicine has used it for hundreds of years as a mainstay in the treatment of serious illnesses. Alaexandr Solzhenitsyn mentions his experience of using rust in the successful treatment of his own cancer in his book Cancer.
During the Second World War in Finland, chaga was used as a substitute for the then unavailable coffee because of its taste and similar aromatic profile. And even much earlier than that, it was made famous by the inhabitants of a Siberian village who also used it as a substitute for coffee and tea, enjoying unusually robust health.
how does it taste?
Each of the "elixirs" has its own specific taste. You can sip them on their own or flavour them with vegetable milk or spices, depending on your mood.
Mix it with cold or hot water, add to smoothies or use in cooking and baking.
Caution: Use caution in taking Chaga at the same time as antibiotics, blood thinners or when administering glucose intravenously (by vein). If in doubt, consult a medical or nutritional professional.
Why prefer a double extract of medicinal mushrooms
Much of the mushroom tissue is indigestible to the human body. Therefore, when we swallow the powder from a ground dried mushroom, we cannot absorb nearly all the valuable active substances from its cells.
The extract, on the other hand, contains all the beneficial substances in an easily digestible form. And to really get all the substances from the natural mushroom, you will even find a double extract in this instant drink. That is, not only the water-soluble substances, but also all the other substances that we have obtained by extraction with alcohol (which, of course, is not contained in the final product at all).
The double extract therefore ensures a higher concentration and better bioavailability of the active substances for the organism. And this is the basis of our medicinal mushroom products.
Tincture or instant drink with medicinal mushrooms?
In our range you will find mushroom tinctures from KÄÄPÄ Health and high-quality instant drinks from Four Sigmatic. What is the difference between them?
All the mushroom products we sell are of high quality and as bioavailable as possible. The active ingredients in them are extracted using a double extraction method.
Four Sigmatic beverages contain, in addition to medicinal mushrooms, other synergistic adaptogenic herbs or superfoods. Their advantage is their great taste and high concentration of active ingredients. In one box you will find a predetermined number of sachets, i.e. doses.
KÄÄPÄ Health tinctures more closely resemble a classic dietary supplement. It is purely a mushroom extract, the amount of which you use the dropper to dose yourself according to your needs.
Ingredients in 1 sachet (3 g): in 1 serving (3 g) - double extract of the chaga mushroom Inonotus obliquus*° (1 500 mg), Siberian ginseng* (750 mg), peppermint leaf*, rosehip* (* = USDA organic; ° wild growing).

Why we love Four Sigmatic
Four Sigmatic - originally from Finland, now based in the US - is the project of a bunch of smart guys who call themselves the Scandinavian funny guys. They combined their lifelong passion for processing medicinal mushrooms and adaptogens with an original idea. They have enriched popular drinks with these traditionally used medicinal gems that can fill our every day with more energy, physical stamina, inner peace and productivity. With this venture, they have made functional mushrooms available to virtually anyone.
Adding the dual extract of these mushrooms and adaptogens to popular beverages like hot cocoa, coffee, latte or matcha latte or creating a multi-species mushroom blend creates a drink for moments of well-being while "recharging the batteries" and boosting the psyche and immunity.
Four Sigmatic products meet the strictest quality criteria. In addition to USDA Organic certification, they are regularly tested by independent laboratories for heavy metals, yeast, mycotoxins and radiation levels. The ingredients in all Four Sigmatic beverages are purely plant-based.

Dobrý den, pane Aleši,
chaga se přímo využívá jako doplňková léčba při ulcerózní kolitidě, můžete.
V případě dalších dotazů jsem pro Vás k dispozici na 732 690 885 nebo email@example.com.
Přeji krásný den,

Je chaga vhodna i pro pacienty, kteri maji psychicke problemy a berou leky? Kde mohu popr. najit interakce? Diky.
Michaela Ptáčková odpověděl:
Krásný den, Jani,
interakce s antidepresivy není známá, upozornění je pouze na léky ředící krev, jelikož chaga přirozeně ředí krev. Adaptogeny mohou být naopak skvělým pomocníkem, jak postupně psychofarmaka vysadit, jelikož zklidňují mysl. V závislosti na typu psychických problémů lze pak doporučit inhalaci levandulového esenciálního oleje pro zklidnění a citrónového pro osvěžení mysli a vytržení z letargie.
S pozdravem Michaela

dobrý den, prosím mám dotaz. Poslední dobou jsem unavená, podrážděná, nesoustředím se. Co byste mi doporučii z vašeho sortimentu? děkuji
Michaela Ptáčková odpověděl:
Krásný den, Zdenko,
vyzkoušejte některou z adaptogenních bylin, které dodávají energii, pomáhají vyrovnat se stresem, vyrovnávají hormony, tím i náladu a zároveň jsou výživné. Doporučuji instantní nápoj reishi, chagu nebo namletý kořen macy.
S pozdravem Michaela
