IMG_0031Chaga Mushroom (Raw, Wild Harvested)

Chaga is Keystone Herb’s Premier Powerhouse Mushroom!

After consuming Chaga regularly for nearly three years, I understand why its known as the “King of the Medicinal Mushrooms”.  If you are looking for incredibly clear skin, mental calm and clarity, as well as physical vibrancy, Chaga is here for you.

All Medicinal Mushrooms are special and powerful, but Chaga outperforms.

It contains an outrageously high 25% antioxidant content which is thanks to its extremely high levels of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD).  Superoxide Dismutase is an aggressively protective antioxidant enzyme that is highly anti-inflammatory. It is also huge in repairing the body and aiding regeneration.  Studies show that SOD levels drop as toxins increase in our bodies as we age. There are studies explaining that sea turtles sustain high levels of SOD long into their old age, science is making a connection between our SOD enzyme levels in our bodies and longevity.

Chaga has immune system enhancing properties which regulate our immune systems for optimal performance.

This means a few different things…

 

1. Chaga calms an over-active immune system (auto immune, allergies,ect.) and it wakes up a sleepy or under-active immune system.  Chaga has a unique melanin complex that has been found to be protective to our genes and DNA. 2. Chaga contains an array of B vitamins, amino acids, and it protects against radiation and environmental hormone disruptors.  This Medicinal Mushroom is also anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-candida. 3. This herb has become an allie and a life long friend of mine.  I couldn’t imagine not consuming this mushroom on a regular basis and   using it as the base for all of my herbal drinks.  It’s like a blanket of reassurance and protection for me and its part of my life.  Chaga may be the keystone herb for anyone wishing to maintain youthfulness, vibrancy, and to build physical immunity.

I am happy to be able to search out, pick, and provide the highest quality Chaga possible for you.  I hope to hear from you soon!

High Quality Chaga Dual Extract Ready!

    Wild Chaga Extract (Dual Extract) Wild Chaga  (Dual Extraction) 2oz

So far, this is the highest quality extract that I am able to provide at the moment and I’m very proud to present this Wild Chaga Dual Extract.  I have been getting a lot of questions about dual extracts and why they are a superior way to take these medicinal mushrooms. I’ll answer those questions in the space below!

3 Reasons why Dual Extracts are the superior way to take Medicinal Mushrooms…

1. Ease of Use: Whether you’re taking a dual extract, a single extract or a powdered extract, this method of delivering the herb seems to be the easiest for people to use.  Especially if you are traveling and cannot make tea regularly.  Consistency is key with these medicinal mushrooms! 2. Full Spectrum Nutrients from the Mushroom:  You get all the nutrients the mushroom has to offer through Dual Extracts. There are two different sets of nutrients derived from the Chaga Mushroom through this process.       First type is the Alcohol Soluble Nutrients.  These are the triterpenoid saponins that provide our body with nutrients that are called “Adaptogens”.  Originally a Pharmacological term, an Adaptogen is described as a metabolic regulator that allows an organism to react to its environment with fluidity and ease.  I feel these compounds assist me in handling seemingly difficult situations with clarity and ease without getting stressed or upset.    Second type of compound is the Water Soluble Nutrients.  These are what are called the Polysaccharides and Beta-Glucans.  These compounds carry the immune system protection and regulating properties.  Extremely high amounts of an enzyme called Super Oxide Dismutase are found within the water soluble nutrients of this Wild Chaga Extract. 3. Faster and Easier Absorption: With this particular mixture, an extremely clean and strong Organic Grape Alcohol was used.  You can choose to use this dual extract two different ways.  First way you can use it is putting half a dropper full under your tongue and holding this extract in your mouth for as long as you wish – the longer the better.  This way is really powerful because the extract is absorbed into the blood stream immediately.   Second way you can use the extract is putting one half dropper in 2oz of juice or water. The extract is powerful and a half dropper of it in your mouth might not be very practical and I can understand that.  By now, I enjoy the effervescence of the Chaga and the alcohol when I use it this way.  It can be a great feeling for some people or terrible for others.  Putting this extract in juice or water works well for a lot of people. This is a very clean extract made from 190 Proof Organic Grape Alcohol.

Directions: Take one half dropper full in a.m. & p.m. or as recommended by your health care professional

Ingredients: Spring water, Organic Grape Alcohol & Chaga Mushroom

Wild Reishi (Dual Extraction)  2oz *Limited Supply*

I am thankful for your patience and I’m happy to announce that a very potent Dual Wild Reishi Extract is now available!! The weather this summer in the North East was near PERFECT conditions for optimal reishi growth.  While I didn’t find more Reishi Mushrooms than usual, I seemed to find the most beautiful and healthy Reishi specimens that I’ve ever come across in the forest. When I find a pristine area with Reishi Mushrooms growing, I tend to re-visit the area nearly twice a week making sure that the bugs and critters dont take over the mushroom and spoil them for picking.  This season, I found that the bugs left most of the Reishi Mushrooms completely ALONE.  What does this mean?  Higher anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties and even more, an overall more potent and genetically stronger mushroom.

What is the difference between Single and Dual Reishi Extract?

The single extract includes only the alcohol soluble nutrients while the Dual Extract includes the FULL spectrum of nutrients from the alcohol extract AND the water soluble nutrients from the mushroom.  What nutrients are we talking about here? 1.  The water soluble nutrients include Poly-saccharides.  These are the immune system modulating long-chain sugars that help educate our immune system which allows it to be MUCH more efficient.  What does immune system modulating mean?  It means that it brings the immune system into balance.  If our immune system is sleepy (lingering colds, immuno deficient issues) it wakes it up and gets it in motion so it can fight off bacteria, viruses and other invaders.  In the same way, if the immune system is over active (auto immune issues), it will bring the immune system into a more relaxed and balanced state where it belongs. 2.  The alcohol fraction includes a wonderful nutrient called Terpenes.   The terpenes carry the adaptogenic compounds of the Reishi Mushroom.  Adaptogens help us deal with daily stress more smoothly.  Your physiology will change depending on your needs.  Hectic day at work?  Reishi seems to take the edge off and helps me make more clear and focused decisions throughout a busy day.

What does the Dual Extract Reishi Mushroom do?

  • Helps regenerate the liver and is liver protective
  • Calming effects on the nervous system bringing a sense of peace
  • Helps relieve insomnia
  • Protects against radiation (We are all getting hit hard nowadays, cell phones, wi-fi, computers, post Fukushima)
  • Works as an anti-oxidant against free radicals and has anti-inflammatory effects
  • Lowers high blood pressure
This wild reishi dual extract is made from Wild Harvested Reishi Mushrooms that are produced naturally in the wild, by mother nature.  These are hand picked by me, sliced and sun dried.  Made with only the best fresh spring water and 190 proof organic grape alcohol.
Directions: Take one dropper full in the A.M. and P.M. or as recommended by your health care professional

I love finding all types of medicinal mushrooms, but the Reishi Mushroom continues to surprise with its beauty each time I discover it in the forest.

Here are few reasons why I think this mushroom is so special…

1.  Its beautiful color.  If you’re lucky, you can find Reishi when they are fresh and they have different color zones ranging from Red to Orange to Yellow and sealed in white a white strip. 2.   I always seem to find Reishi in very beautiful parts of the woods or nestled way back in the forest among the pines and hemlocks. 3.   They provide an impressive nutritional profile along with chemical compounds that help our bodies reach a fuller potential.

A Few Interesting Facts On Reishi…

This mushroom is more culturally well know in China and Japan.  In China, Korea, and Japan they have all sorts of art work with Reishi being represented.  Traditionally, the Reishi Mushroom is associated with royalty, health and recuperation, longevity, sexual prowess, wisdom and happiness (Stamets, Mycelium Running, 2005).

Reishi is THEE most researched medicinal mushroom on the planet.

Why in an alcohol/ethanol extraction?

When you make a tea out of Reishi mushroom you get certain compounds.  When you make an alcohol extraction you get a different set of compounds from the mushroom.  The goal with this extraction is to be able to use the triterpenoids that give the Reishi Mushroom its adaptogenic qualities. An Adaptogen is a term that refers to any chemical compound that helps the body adapt to certain stressors in its environment.  For example, I notice after about 3 weeks use of Reishi extract that I can handle more projects and tasks without getting overwhelmed and not knowing where to start.

This is where our Reishi Extract comes from:
