Chaga mushrooms are especially high in a compound called super-oxide dismutase (SOD), this is an enzyme which reduces the damage done to cells by “super-oxide”, the most common free radical in the body, acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Chaga is highly regarded as an adaptogen - adaptogens are a unique group of phytonutrients which help your body adjust to stressful circumstances ranging from extreme heat or cold to infections or trauma.
Some mushrooms such as reishi and chaga are shown to actually be antifungal against the candida yeast.

Mode of Action
Inonotus obliquus extracts were found to inhibit hepatitis C virus and human immunodeficiency virus15 and demonstrated strong antioxidant and immunostimulatory activities in vitro. At the same time, animal studies revealed that aqueous extracts of I. obliquus exhibited anti-inflammatory effects in experimental colitis and promoted lipid metabolism. The mushroom has the ability to increase peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors γ transcriptional activities, which are expected to be therapeutic targets for dyslipidemia and type 2 diabetes.
Its biological activities explain why it is used as an adjuvant in oncology, especially in anticancer chemotherapies in Asian pharmacopoeias.
The chemical analysis of Chaga in scientific literature revealed several compounds such as polysaccharides, triterpenes, and polyphenols, which might be responsible for most of the therapeutic effects previously mentioned. A tetracyclic triterpene called inotodiol produced following the lanosterols biosynthetic pathway elicited the interest of the international scientific community. Inotodiol has antiproliferative properties, demonstrated in vitro with human lung adenocarcinoma cells (A549) cancer-derived cells or HeLa.

Ethnobotany
Called “The Mushroom of Immortality” by the Siberian Russian Shamans and the "Diamond of the Forest" by the Japanese, Chaga earns its moniker, “The King of the Medicinal Mushrooms” due to it being one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world. Harnessing the power of ancient trees, it draws its nutrients from the inner layers of the bark of the tree which it grows on – normally silver and white birch trees.
There is a rich history of human Chaga consumption, stretching back for millennia, especially in Siberia with legends telling of an amazing birch fungus with miraculous health properties.  Accounts date back as far as 1000 BCE in Traditional Chinese Medicine, with it being used to balance the body’s life force or “Chi” energy and to boost the immune system. The spectrum of pharmacological properties associated with their uses is important: antimicrobial, antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, antiarthritic, and anticancer activities. These last 2 activities were the most studied, especially from betulin and betulinic acid. In traditional medicine, the use of birch against rheumatism is reported, for example, in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Lebanon. From an experimental point of view, the study by Gründemann confirms the anti-inflammatory effect of the extract of Betula pendula by its action on the lymphocytes. Different species belonging to the genus Betula have also been tested to evaluate their anticancer potential. The compounds betulin and betulinic acid were tested in vitro on different models of cancer cells (cutaneous, ovarian, and pulmonary) demonstrating their antiproliferative potential.


History
In the middle of the 20th century, it was still used in Siberia for its properties by Russian farmers and workers too poor to buy tea: they crushed it and drank it as an infusion. This use of the Chaga in Siberian gulags is mentioned in Alexandre Soljénitsyne’s book Le Pavillon des cancéreux (Cancer Ward). Soviet health authorities noticed a decrease of the incidence of cancer cases in this population and assumed that the consumption of this infusion was a protective factor against cancer. In 1955, the USSR Ministry of Health recognized the therapeutic interest of Chaga used as a decoction and wrote it down in the Soviet Pharmacopeia under the name of Befunginum.
The extracts of Chaga have been used in China, Korea, Japan, Russia, and the Baltics for their favorable effects on lipid metabolism and cardiac function, as well as for antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antitumor activities.
Chaga has a very long history of use in Russian and Siberian folklore and herbalism, it was traditionally made into medicinal tea, used to start fires by carrying a lit Chaga coal, used as a dye, and made into drums. Shamans and healers recognised the Chaga Mushroom as holding ancient wisdom, as well as providing an essential source of human nutrition including phyto-chemicals and a rich mineral content.
The Siberians used it to boost physical stamina and attain a long life – it has been noted by contemporary Russians that in the districts where Chaga was used, there was no cancer. In looking at their close neighbours the Inuits (who did not use Chaga), it is interesting to note that the average life span of the Inuit was 40 – 50 years in contrast to the people from Siberian tribes who regularly lived to be 90 – 110 years old.

Contra-Indications
Chaga might increase the risk of bleeding. Don't use chaga if you have a bleeding disorder. Surgery: Chaga might affect blood sugar control or increase the risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using chaga at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.

Interactions
Medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs) interacts with CHAGA. Chaga might slow blood clotting. Taking chaga along with medications that also slow blood clotting might increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.
