Major Benefits of Chaga Extract Powder
What’s Inside Chaga Extract Powder
Wellness Benefits of Chaga Mushroom Powder
Sayan Chaga mushroom extract powder is developed using only the highest-quality, wild-harvested Siberian Chaga mushroom benefits from the Sayan Mountain range of Siberia. A leading natural adaptogen, Chaga has a high ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) that exceeds that of known superfoods acai berries, blueberries, and pomegranates. The higher the ORAC level, the better the body is able to fight oxidative stress caused by free oxygen radicals.*
Chaga mushroom constituents also include polysaccharides, beta-glucans, and polyphenols, all of which contribute to Chaga’s many wellness benefits.*
A Celebrated Medicinal Mushroom throughout the Ages
Chaga’s purifying properties were first documented in Chinese traditional medicine thousands of years ago, and it has been celebrated in Siberian folklore homeopathy for centuries. The preferred route of consumption has been a soothing, woodsy tea made by steeping the raw mushroom in hot water. People still drink it daily in Siberia to improve their wellness and longevity.
Although ignored in the Western world for hundreds of years, today Chaga is re-emerging as a scientifically-backed adaptogen. Adaptogens are natural substances that can help the body adapt to stress and help normalize bodily processes. Many are realizing chaga tincture numerous wellness benefits, and are finding that using it daily is a great way to increase energy without caffeine, fight the detrimental effects of stress on the body, and boost overall well-being.*
The Science Behind Potency and Quality
Not all Chaga extract powder is created equal – there’s a science behind producing the purest and most potent extracts. An independent lab, Brunswick Laboratories, determined that our Chaga extract has an ORAC value of 153,200 micromoles of Trolox Equivalents per 100 grams (molTE per 100 g). Compare this to acai extract at 102,700 mol TE per 100 g, blueberries at 9,621, and pomegranates at 4,479. As the creator of the first Chaga beverage in 2007, we are actively and constantly researching the benefits of Chaga using different methods.
Our Chaga extract is very potent. The extraction rate is 16%, which means for every 1 kg of raw Chaga, we produce 160 grams of extract. In other words, we process 6.25 lbs of raw Chaga to produce 1 lb of Chaga extract powder.
The secret to Chaga’s immune-boosting power is in a chemical structure known as “chromogenic complex.” The chromogenic complex is measured as a percentage of polyphenols, which are the molecules that dissolve in water first (40–45%) during the Chaga extraction process. Polyphenols are responsible for the extract’s dark color, and aid in absorption.
Sayan Chaga extract contains:
- 44–50% polyphenols (chromogenic complex)
- 12–13% polysaccharides
- 1.5% β (1,3) D-glucan
- <1% betulinic acid
It is very important to understand why Chaga extract with 12–13% polysaccharides qualifies as a high-quality Chaga extract. For more detailed info on chromogenic complex, quality Chaga extract powder processing methods, and polysaccharides check out our FAQ.
Why Choose Sayan Chaga Extract Powder?
As the developer of the first raw Chaga beverage, Sayan is dedicated to producing only the most potent, high-quality Chaga mushroom extract powder on the market. Ever since 2007, we’ve used our proprietary technique to prepare raw Chaga for a low-pressure hot water extraction method with subsequent freeze-drying process, to ensure our product is optimized with the most essential nutrients.
The majority of Chaga manufacturers use a Thermal Infrared Drying extraction process which doesn’t preserve all useful ingredients. See the table below for detailed info on the benefits of our Sublimation drying process.
Water vs. Alcohol Extraction
We’ve been asked numerous times what the difference is between wild Chaga liquid extract produced through water extraction versus alcohol extraction, so we created the table below to explain. All studies that have been conducted by Chaga mushroom scientists have used Chaga extract powder produced by water extraction. To date, there is no scientific proof that Chaga extract produced by alcohol extraction is superior to Chaga extract produced by water extraction. But if you’re only looking for Chaga extract produced by alcohol extraction or a mix of alcohol and water extraction, before purchasing such a mix, it’s a good idea to ask about the ratio between the two.
At Sayan, we believe that Chaga produced by water extraction is far superior and proven by time. Thus we only offer Siberian Chaga organic mushroom extract powder produced by water extraction with a sublimation freeze-drying process.
We believe in the merits of hard science to present to you a formula based on scientific research with no false claims. For any questions about the tea mushroom benefits, our wild Chaga experts are always ready to give you answers and steer you toward impeccable wellness.
Ingredients: Whole Chaga Mushroom (Innonotus obliquus) Extract Powder.
Daily supplement use: 0.07 – 0.10 oz (2-3 grams, or about half a teaspoon) of powdered Chaga extract mixed with your favorite beverage to be taken daily.
Daily Supplement Intense: 0.25 – 0.35 oz (7-10 grams, or about 1.5 – 2.0 teaspoons) of powdered Chaga extract, to be taken daily.
Pure Chaga has an acquired taste – it may even seem bitter as it has a lot of herbal flavor. If the herbal flavor of Chaga is too strong and makes it difficult to ingest, add some sweetener such as honey or sugar to suit your individual preference or use more liquid (we also find that beverages with lots of flavor could mask the herbal note of Chaga very well).
Please note that the daily dose can be split in half or even three or four equal portions, to be taken throughout the day. Also if you start with Daily Chaga Supplement Benefits Intense chaga powder dosage we advise to increase serving size gradually, for example, start with 0.07 – 0.10 oz (2-3 grams, or about half a teaspoon) and then increase serving size to 0.25 – 0.35 oz ( 7-10 grams, or about 1.5 – 2.0 teaspoons ) in 7-10 days.
For best results, take a 5 – 7-day break from taking Chaga studies extract powder every 24 – 28 days. In other words, use it for about a month, stop for a week, and then use it for another 4 weeks, and so on.
While taking Chaga extract powder we recommend to follow a dairy-vegetative diet and try to minimize the amount of smoked meats, products high in animal fat such as bacon, strong seasonings, and processed foods. We also recommend quitting smoking and limiting alcohol intake to a moderate level
Caution: Avoid consuming Chaga extract powder if you are currently taking penicillin or intravenous injections of glucose, in case of adverse interactions or side effects.

Received my order very quickly. Initially, I purchased the Chaga tea and was drinking it for a few weeks. Then I decided to try Shilajit by adding it to the tea, luckily Sayan offers shilajit as well. Have been taking both Chaga and Shilajit for a couple of months now and it has been life-changing for me. What is the result? I could really feel improvements in my daily life: more energy, better concentration, and better sleep. I would highly recommend both items!!!

I rarely write reviews but I felt very impelled to write this one. I am so grateful to have found this company. The Chaga is so easy to use and it works!! After about a week, both my husband and I happily found we were full of energy after drinking our tea, but even more, we were hugely shocked by how deeply and soundly we had begun to sleep!!! I even overslept one day! As we have gotten older, we have both had some sleep issues and now it is a pleasure to experience deep and relaxing sleep again.

First time trying this. Wow, it’s totally legit. Immediately felt strength and overall body wellness. Thank you! I”m hooked.
Jeffrey Anderson –
Very much pleased with this extract powder! I am adding this chaga powder daily to my smoothies and in yogurt. I am fully satisfied and very happy with the purchase. Appropriately priced for the highest quality and concentration of chaga. Also, the delivery was fast and well packed. Fantastic Sayan!
Howard Barnes –
I got it to replace my everyday coffee. I have been using this for the last 5-6 months and the results are amazing. It provides increased stamina in a good way. My concentration has improved as well. Nowadays I am taking it every day with yogurt. Thanks, Sayan.
Colette de Gagnier-Rettner (verified owner) –
I have tried another brand of Chaga in the past, and I neither liked the taste nor felt much of an effect. SAYAN Chaga is completely different! I drink it as a tea with a bit of honey and warm almond milk, and it is not only delicious, it feels incredibly nourishing and strengthening to my immune system. I love the feeling of energy it gives me throughout the day. In the future, I will always travel with SAYAN Chaga. I love this chaga!
Wayne Gatlin –
I received the package on time but when I looked at the package size of the product, I thought it would not last as described because the packaging was small. But you only need a very small amount. It’s smooth and has a nice taste.
Mark Morillo –
I am in my 80’s, I was looking for a natural product that would improve my wellness. I read about the importance of some mushrooms that are beneficial for wellness. I bought chaga extract powder from sayan and after having it for the first day my body felt better. Now it’s been three months since I have had this and I feel much better. Chaga really helped me improve my overall wellness..
Rodney Decker –
I bought this product in order to improve the digestive system. I add a pinch of this extract powder to my parent’s morning tea as well and it seems to be effective for them. This stuff is really good and we enjoyed it. Thanks, Sayan.
Vincent Felder –
I started using this extract about 15 days ago. I add this to my coffee every day. The best thing I have noticed is a sudden increase in my energy levels. Also, I can rest better and my brain is sharper now. Pretty good product.
Ruby Bianco –
I bought this product in order to get an antioxidant boost.. I read about its antioxidant properties which help to boost immunity. I feel strong and have boosted my overall wellness. I highly recommend this premium quality supplement!
Thelma Irons –
This is the best Chaga, I have ordered so far. I am highly satisfied with the quality. I dissolve it in hot water and add a little bit of honey. The Chaga extract tea is dark and rich, very easy to make and I enjoy the taste and the flavor. So far so good!
PuddyBear (verified owner) –
I ordered this a couple months ago. It took a few weeks for me to realize the effects from drinking Chaga. I had more energy and was finally getting a good night’s sleep, but I dismissed it as just ‘normal’ vs. being related to the Chaga because it was a slow gradual change. That is until I fell off the wagon and forgot to drink it for a couple weeks! Reality quickly smacked me in the face with the typical ‘non-sleep’ type of sleep at night and low energy days. Another thing that was, that became much better, and is now back is an area on my upper back that constantly itched for the past year, to the point that I wanted to rub my back on a door frame like a bear on a tree to get to it. No matter how much I scratched it, it wouldn’t go away. Well a few weeks into Chaga and the itching has almost disappeared! I totally forgot about it, but after falling off the Chaga wagon for a few weeks its now back! (A brief history…the big ‘C’ is heavy on my dads side of the family, I have had several atypical moles removed from my upper back in recent years.) I find this to be a very odd ‘coincidence’ considering the wellness properties that Chaga possesses…makes you go ‘hummmm…’ This is going to be a forever permanent part of my diet. I dont mix it with anything, just hot water is fine…it completely dissolves. I totally recommend it!
Stacey Mounir (verified owner) –
I’m beyond impressed with this Chaga. Water extraction is amazing and eliminates contaminants from alcohol extraction, like gluten and GMO products! This is real and pure! This is, by far, the best Chaga mushroom I have ever tasted. I will not use any other Chaga ever again.
Tonya Davis –
A friend of mine recommended this miracle mushroom supplement and after using Chaga powder for almost a month my body feels much better. I can tell that my digestion improved. I add extract to my coffee and drink twice a day. Highly recommended.
Jeffery Soto –
I guess I love this product and it loves me. This is one of my favorite products ever for my wellness and enjoyment. It makes me more focused and active for the whole day. I just add this powder to my morning energy drink every day. Better try and see the benefits.
John Reed –
I bought chaga chunks last time to make tea but they are hard as rocks and take some time to brew. But this freeze dried powder is easy to dissolve in my morning coffee or tea, or just in hot water. I love the flavor and the benefits – and the simplicity of power usage.
Pedro Smith –
This extract mixes well with a hot drink but lumps up a lot for cold ones. To avoid these lumps it is better to stir into a small amount of liquid first. I use one full teaspoon for one drink. Love the brilliant packaging. The package zip seals well and is very convenient to use.
Leo B. Barnett –
Wow! A huge energy boost. I can feel that this product is doing amazing things for my body. It feels like my cells are dancing. I love the fact that this product is wild harvested and I will take this for life now!

I’ve already reviewed this when I first ordered, but after consuming this daily for about 2 months, I am adding another testimonial. I am about 70 years old, and as we age, it seems harder to get a good night’s sleep. For maybe 5 years, I’ve had a hard time falling asleep, and worse: staying asleep. Every night. Since drinking Sayan’s chaga tea, I’m sleeping like a teenager again. Thank you, Sayan! I just placed another order.
Joey Tenbears (verified owner) –
I brew my own chaga tea from fist-sized chunks grown at high altitude in northern Vermont, plopped into near-boiling water, taken from a local brook. I can get many dark cups of tea from one of these. However, I must concede that the Sayan extract is superior (in quality AND PRICE) to what I’m doing, because it has a concentration that I can’t match. I like encapsulating Sayan extract powder and taking these with me if I have to travel over time. I use 00 caps, and keep a bunch in my pockets. Instant wake-up & awareness.
Jay Luciani (verified owner) –
I received the Chaga Extract Powder promptly and in good order… I have been using the extract powder in accordance with the instructions provided and adding it to my coffee… (thank you for the instructions). The extract powder is strong, and I find the taste is quite pleasant and actually enhances the flavor of my “ice coffee”… a good quality product, and you only need to add a small amount since it is an extract (i.e., concentrated) which makes it very affordable and well worth the money spent… love it and thank you very much 🙂
Charles Parmley –
I am so glad that I ordered this!! I was in great trouble due to my imperfect skin and then one of my friends recommended this product. I must say this product works wonders. On the 3rd day after taking the extract, I noticed the effect of reduced redness and less broken skin. The manifestation of redness is paling off daily and my skin improving! I look forward to continued use. Thank You Sayan!
Deb M (verified owner) –
I’ve been taking this daily for only 4 days, so that’s not much time to build up a track record, but I CAN attest to the wonderful smell from a brewed cup and to a quite palatable taste that needs no masking with sugar or other flavors. I’ve already placed my second order.
Cecilia Lee (verified owner) –
We almost took Sayan chaga for 2 years. Our wellness report was excellent. We are so happy to know about this product.
Jamie Barney –
I’ve been using Sayan chaga mushroom powder for about 6-7 months. It’s a great product with outstanding antioxidant qualities. The best part is the product delivers what it promises. For me, it worked really well. I feel much more energetic now and have better endurance. As I started taking this powder regularly, I noticed that my mood swings are gradually getting under control. Highly recommended!
Tina Lopez –
Sayan Siberian Chaga extract powder is the best wellness product I’ve used so far. It worked well for me. I wake up relaxed and my immune system is getting better. The product delivers what it promises. A must buy!
Helen Horne –
I have been using this powder for about a year. It helps to detox my body and get smoother skin, red rashes slowly paling in about 3-4 months of drinking tea. It’s just a superb product.
Claudio Sullivan –
I have been using chaga extract for 7-8 months. About 3-4 days after taking it I noticed that I have much more energy and better endurance. After using it for a month, I have noticed that my mood is better and I sleep better. Chaga’s antioxidant qualities are the best in this extract. Interesting note, I notice that I can take more workload in the gym and recover faster after a workout.
Cassandra Jackson (verified owner) –
I have only been on this for one week, but can’t recommend it highly enough. I virtually felt an improvement straight away. It was almost as if it was what my body was lacking so it absorbed it and started working straight away. I have spent a lot of money over the years on supplements touting their benefits, only to be disappointed. Great to have a real true genuine high quality product. Thank you Sayan..
Soojin (verified owner) –
It really works for me and my family. I buy it every two or three month to improve my overall wellness. Recommended.
Kirk Ramirez –
I have gone the round with tons of other energy boosting supplements and vitamins. I also have tried Macca, ginseng, other B complex formulas, heck I even slummed it and tried energy drinks. I finally went to a natural market and asked someone in their vitamin department about getting a high-quality energy supplement that was vitamin based- they referred me to this product. Nothing has worked as well as this! I am now a loyal customer.
Amy Rose –
Excellent energy boost to my well-being!
I’ve been ordering for some time and now have been waiting to share this feedback.
Few months back, I started reading about chaga mushrooms. Then I realized that I want it in my life. My first order was Sayan Siberian Chaga extract and I was very satisfied with my purchase as I noticed that it really increases energy, stamina and my son noticed better focus on study. Second time I tried chaga from different companies to know more about chaga’s taste and purity but that was a bad decision and made me very disappointed. So I just want to say that Sayan Chaga Extract was the best choice. Now, my husband and I drink chaga as a late, with almond milk foam with a touch of honey and coconut oil for energy boost and well-being. Wish to Sayan team all the best and to continue providing this amazing product at this price point. Cheers!!!

This product helps regenerate nerve growth including your brain and whole nervous system. I’ve been using it for some time now to make a ‘mushroom’ substitute coffee with either homemade Almond milk or Hemp seed milk and find it really focuses me. Exactly what was expected!
Robin Spang –
I so LOVE it!!! I am a Grandma of two preschoolers that get sick quite a lot. I watch them two days a week & have been getting colds, flu every time they have them. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product to help improve immunity! It’s been a game-changer for me!
Peter Grant –
I rarely give reviews- but this product is AWESOME. To give you a little background: I am an HHP (Holistic practitioner), Life Coach and Yoga Teacher. I have tons of food allergies that make me especially prone to fatigue. I even have a rare genetic problem that makes it more challenging for me to absorb nutrients- hence the fatigue issues I suffer from. I am also EXCEPTIONALLY picky about the quality of my supplements. No allergy from this chaga extract!
Jake Wyman –
I really like how strong this is, definitely a great boost of energy. If you plan to try it, do it Cheers!
Melvin Payne –
This extract blend has become my favorite product to use by sayan, I can put it in a lot of my morning meals.
Evelyn Solomon –
Really great product, can’t wait to try other products by Sayan.
Robert Harm –
I absolutely LOVE this product! Helps with radiance of skin and length of nails. Also feeling of inner comfort is stronger when taking this. Great in a morning smoothie. Price is, by far, BEST with the subscription offer.
Kathy Collier –
Wonderful product! Not only does this product give you energy, it is amazing with helping your immune system and the ability to focus. I travel extensively overseas for business and this is my secret to beating jet lag. I have traveled to Asia and Europe a total of 15 times in the past 7 months and I feel very well! I do not drink coffee, so this is my wake up drink when I am on the road. I will definitely purchase more!
Megan Franc –
Definitely a GREAT PRODUCT! Easy to prepare, all you must do is to dissolve it in water and it has a mild bitter taste like watered down black coffee. I am now consistently taking it and it helps me in my everyday chores as a full-time mom! Thanks Sayan!
Michael Rogers –
The quality of this product is beyond what I expected, will so continue to use it.
David S –
Love this product so much. It gives me great solid energy all day without any of the negatives of other caffeine drinks. I love that I am doing good things for my body at the same time since mushrooms have important wellness benefits. I have been using it for months and I drink it every day now! I use just one of the scoops in the morning though since I found that is all I need.
Gertrude Barnett –
I really like how the powder works, super smooth and nothing gritty ends up at the bottom of my cups.
Diane Williams –
This stuff works GREAT! I am so glad I found it on Amazon! I add it to my green drink every morning and can feel the difference in my afternoon workouts after using it for 2 weeks. I can breathe better during cardio and the mushrooms give me an extra energy boost. I also feel like my body recovers better from the workout and I am not as sore. I am going to try some of their other products now. This Mushroom powder give me POWER.
Eric Britt –
Well I was running out of energy. I don’t drink coffee or tea. I needed something to pick me up. I got addicted to energy drinks and diet coke. I realized they were not good for my body but what to do… I found these in my natural food store and bought them. It is super healthy and gives me the energy I need in the morning so I would recommend it!
