Chaga: The Immunity King (Part 3/3)

In part 3 of the chaga series, I’m making a chaga tincture. This is a great way to extract the medicinal constituents out of an herb, and have it readily available whenever you want. No fuzzing around with teas, decoctions, or a shake.

A tincture has a shelf life of at least 5 years!

I discuss the double extraction method, which liberates both the water-soluble components (polyphenolic) and alcohol-soluble components (betulinic acid, betulin and phyto-sterols) into the menstrum (the left over medicinal liquid).

Remember, it doesn’t work if you don’t take it.
