Scientists from the Vector Institute near Novosibirsk, in Russia, claim to have found the potential cure for HIV/AIDS (human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome) in a folk remedy mushroom called Chaga. The strain of fungi is well-known around Siberia, and for centuries has been suspected by many a babushka as an effective cure for antiviral activity. Now, researchers are claiming the anecdotal claims have scientific basis, as the Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus), which grows on the trunks of birch trees, contains high concentrations of betulinic acid. The acid has antiretroviral, anti-inflammatory, and recently discovered anticancer agents that Vector scientists are calling a “promising line of development.”
