Chaga is a fungus that’s incredibly rich in antioxidants and grows on birch trees in colder regions like Canada, Maine, Finland and Russia. It supports a healthy immune function and has potent compounds to help with digestion and skin health as well as being a potent antioxidant. This means it is particularly useful to use after antibiotics and other medications that are known to cause oxidative stress, along with diets high in processed foods and exposure to pesticides and chemicals.

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is an unusual fungus – however, it is not technically a mushroom. Chaga is a hardened mass of mycelium (fungal “root” structures) and wood lignins. It develops into a hard “canker” as it feeds on its host tree (in other words, it’s a tree parasite). The bioactive molecules that the Chaga absorbs from the birch tree as it grows is what gives it medicinal properties.

Chaga may help with the following, not only for our pets but for us as well:

  • Protecting DNA from oxidative damage
  • Promoting healthy digestion and regulating the gut microbiome
  • Promoting a healthy inflammation response
  • Supporting effective immune system response
  • Supporting healthy blood sugar levels
  • Promoting muscle endurance and stamina

Chaga Extract Dosing Information for Pets with Cancer

Chaga, being made up mostly of mycelium, will typically have a much lower content of beta-glucans than mushrooms. However, the other “power” molecule in this unusual type of mushroom, betulinic acid, is derived directly from the birch tree and has potent immune system-supporting power.

One study used a beta-glucan dose of 6 mg/kg of Chaga extract in laboratory animals with experimentally induced cancer. Using that as guidance, a 25 pound dog would receive 68 mg of beta-glucans from Chaga which is the equivalent of 8.5 grams (about 4 tsp) of the bulk powder daily.

An Important Note for Pets with Kidney Stones:

Chaga, unlike other mushrooms, have oxalates present. Oxalates, like found in rhubarb and spinach for instance, or spinach can clog up the filtration system of the kidney, the glomerulus, leading to kidney problems if enough oxalates are ingested with the foods. When foods are cooked, oxalates that are soluble are dissolved into the cooking water, and if the water is discarded, the oxalates do not pose a problem.

There also are insoluble oxalates that are not dissolved into the cooking water. Real Mushrooms analyzed their Chaga extract for both types of oxalates and found that it contained around 2-3% oxalates, mostly being insoluble oxalates residues. This means that in a typical 1 gram serving, 20-30mg (2-3%) of oxalates is lower than servings in many commonly eaten foods like spinach, potatoes, yams, beans and even french fries. As expected we found no soluble oxalates, and the level of insoluble oxalates was lower than normally found in spinach.

If your dog or cat has a history of bladder or kidney stones, then it may be best not to use this species of fungus.
