The scientists of the Institute of Vector in Russia claimed, mushrooms known in the area around the Siberia for centuries been believed to be effectively used for antiviral drugs. This time, the researchers claim these allegations already have an adequate scientific basis.

Chaga fungus which has the Latin name 'Inonotus obliquus' is growing on a birch rod. It contains a high concentration of Betulinic acid which has antiretroviral properties, anti-inflammatory, and has recently discovered the existence of anticancer agents.

"The strain of this fungus showed low toxicity and potent antiviral effect. Fungus has a very strong effect against smallpox, influenza, and HIV," said Institute of Vector scientists, as quoted from the page of Siberian Times, on Wednesday, December 11, 2013.

Previously, researchers selected 33 strains of 82 species of fungi that grow in the southwest Siberia. They found that Chaga mushrooms useful as anti-HIV and anti-AIDS substances as anti-tumor and immune stimulating ability. 

Chaga mushroom is famous around Siberia because it shows a large antivirus capabilities. Russian folklore often mention the efficacy of Chaga as a dietary supplement. This fungus is also described as a cancer drug in Alexander Solzhenitsyn's novel written in 1968 entitled 'Cancer World'.

It's just in the U.S., this fungus is less scientific support. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York on its website stating that there has been no clinical trials have been conducted to assess the safety and efficacy of Chaga in preventing disease or treating cancer.

"Although relatively never been written in the mainstream media, Chaga mushroom has been used for folk medicine for generations. Research has shown Chaga is very effective in protecting cells from DNA-damaging free radicals," said a spokesman for Vector. Hopefully this discovery proved successful and become a lifesaver for millions of AIDS sufferers worldwide. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ANSWERS | BUBLENEWS]
