PROTECT Now - Organic Chaga 8:1 Dual Extract Capsules
Fight Free Radicals and Prevent Cell Damage with the Antioxidant Power of PROTECT Now Chaga Mushroom Extract Capsules
High potency PROTECT Now Chaga mushroom extract capsules are made from an 8:1 dual extract of organic, wild harvested chaga sclerotia (the part of the chaga that grows on the outside of a tree). Chaga contains SOD (superoxide dismutase), an enzyme that breaks down superoxide radicals that are damaging to your body's cells. Many think of it as an anti-aging serum that works from the inside out to protect cells from becoming damaged. An ancient sacred medicine for some indigenous groups across Canada (the Cree, Denesuline, and Ojibway) and a mushroom of cultural importance for the people of Russia and Siberia, chaga is known for both ritual and remedy. Today we know that chaga mushroom powder extracts have one of the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values on the planet. This is a measure of how effective a substance is at neutralizing free radicals in the body. Chaga has about 50 times the number of antioxidants as blueberries! Essentially, chaga mushroom supplements can prevent damage to DNA that might be caused by oxidation from a poor diet or chemicals in the environment. This means less stress on the body, slower aging, and the prevention of many diseases. Protect what you love! Health Canada NPN: 80116268

All Natural Anti-inflammatory Support from Medicinal Mushrooms - Chaga Extract PROTECT Now Capsules!
PROTECT yourself from free radicals that cause premature aging and inflammation the natural way with Chaga mushroom extract capsules! Experts suggest thinking of chaga like an anti-aging serum that works from the inside out. Chaga has been shown to help those with psoriasis and the arthritis associated with it; psoriatic arthritis. A Russian study that tested 50 patients with psoriasis found that with consistent use of extracts, 14 patients were completely cured and the others had significant improvements - with NO SIDE EFFECTS!
As far back as the 1200s, chaga mushroom benefits have been shared across many cultures and multiple generations. These groups didn’t call chaga an adaptogen, but they knew they enjoyed how it helped their bodies adapt to the stress from their environment. It gave them healthier skin and helped with lung problems.
Today we know that chaga mushrooms like those used to make PROTECT Now, get their superpowers (triterpenoids and betulinic acid) from the birch trees on which they grow. The trees are a source of betulin, which ends up inside the chaga mushroom as it grows outward from the tree. Chaga mushroom powder extracts that aren’t made from wild harvested mushrooms are often very low in beneficial compounds because they are grown on grain (with no source of betulin) and end up as mycelium on grain with no sclerotia.
Eversio’s PROTECT Now is a potent and highly effective mushroom supplement that contains organic chaga whole sclerotia medicinal mushrooms as an 8:1 dual extract for a full therapeutic dose of all beneficial compounds in just one capsule.

Who Should Take Eversio Wellness Therapeutic Dose Chaga Mushroom Capsules?
Chaga is well known as the KING of medicinal mushrooms and commonly grows in cold climates on birch trees. In Norway this mushroom is called “cancer fungus” but to date there is no scientific evidence or research to demonstrate that it is effective as a treatment for cancer, and it shouldn’t be relied on for cancer prevention. Rather, chaga mushroom supplements with high levels of beta-d-glucans and betulinic acid can be relied on to support a healthy immune system by upregulating production of cytokines. These immune cells can be pro or anti-inflammatory making chaga a powerful immunomodulator and effective support for some people with autoimmune conditions.
Because of the tremendous beneficial compounds they contain, there are numerous benefits of Chaga mushroom being studied. You can visit our collection of studies, research, and references to help you see why many people use Chaga mushroom supplements. Here is a snapshot of what some research is demonstrating about Chaga mushroom benefits:
- Has one of the highest ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) values on the planet - a unit of measurement devised to score substances in terms of their antioxidant value - reduces DNA damage and signs of aging
- Strengthens immune system
- Naturally balances pro and anti-inflammatory activity (in cases of immunosuppression)
- Decreases levels of TNF-alpha (involved in inflammation)
- Increases HDL (good) cholesterol and lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol
- Prevents and helps to control or reverse diabetes
- Improves health of skin and hair
- Boosts beneficial gut bacteria
- Adaptogenic characteristics that can help the body adapt to stress
