A LITTLE ABOUT CHAGA MUSHROOMS
Chaga Mushroom is a powerhouse of natural anti-aging properties. It is an immune system booster that helps to combat fatigue and boost overall energy. We take great care with the sourcing of our chaga and make sure it is ethically harvested by people who can support their families while they protect the environment.
Our chaga mushroom is made from the fungus that grows on birch trees in northern climates. Our superfoods are ethically sourced from northern countries, where the climate and environment are optimal for growing high-quality mushrooms. We make sure that our products are grown organically and sustainably to ensure the best quality product possible.
The benefits of chaga mushroom is due to the large amounts of beta-glucans, betulinic acid, triterpenes and minerals that are in the fruit body. The medicinal compounds found in dried chaga have been attributed to its many therapeutic properties such as antiviral and hypo-glycemic.
Chaga mushroom is a unique, exotic way to get your immune system started right. Easy to make and delicious, chaga tea has a subtle but complex flavor that pairs well with honey, or can be enjoyed on its own. Pure chaga contains antioxidants and minerals like iron, magnesium, selenium, zinc and phosphorus in high concentrations that help support normal cellular function.
The word Chaga was first mentioned to me years ago by a local from New Hampshire. He had heard a rumor it was good for you. Gary was into growing oyster mushrooms and shiitakes so it was only natural. Sometime in early March, up in the mountains in a remote region of nowhere, we decided to go for it...
In the Mountains…
It was early Spring and the ground still frozen. We trekked for 2 hours, then came up to a hill. The walk up was a pain, a sheet of ice disguised under an inch of snow. As we all lost hope, I made a mad dash for the birch stand. I had gone maybe 20 feet before I almost tripped over a perfectly cut "Y" shaped log, like as if someone had cut the top of a tree off. Sure enough in the middle of that birch log was a hacked Chaga. I was too late.
