Chaga has been indicated for its action to inhibit melanoma cell growth and reduce anti-cancer activity in human colon cancer cells.

Noteworthy chemicals and compounds include polysaccharides, Beta-D-Glucans, phytosterols, Betulin and Betulinic Acid (triterpenes), polyphenols, and Super Oxide Dismutase (a group of enzymes).

The betulinic acid found in Chaga comes from the live birch trees where it grows and is most noted to normalize the body’s cholesterol levels while serving as an anti-inflammatory agent. Betulinic acid has been studied for its anti-proliferative activity on cancer cells. Research is being done to determine just how betulinic acid can best be delivered in cancer treatment, addressing the problem of its poor solubility in certain solutions.

Like other polyspores, Chaga contains polysaccharides that stimulate the immune system. As well as being identified to enhance the immune system, research has also indicated that Chaga has the ability to regulate blood pressure, glucose, insulin, and both serum and liver lipids, such as cholesterol, triglycerides, and phospholipids.

Chaga has been studied for its role in regulating cytokine production which may classify it as an anti-inflammatory to fight chronic inflammation that can lead to other problems and diseases.
