The Chaga Mushroom - King of Medicinal Mushrooms
Now more than ever people are looking back toward the forest instead of the pharmacy when it comes to their personal health and well-being. The Chaga Mushroom is the perfect example of how a relatively unknown medicinal mushroom, traditionally collected in the forests of Russia has quickly become so well known throughout the health and wellness community in Canada and North America.
Chaga Mushrooms may be found while walking through temperate forests looking for encrusted black formations on wounded or dying white birch trees. The sterile and cork like mycelium grows out of wounds sustained after storms and other impacts that break branches, as if the Chaga covers the tree's wound and protects it from invading micro organisms. A tree and its Chaga companion can co-exist for many years and the mushroom can be harvested several times over the course of its lifetime.
Chaga Mushrooms are toted as "King of Medicinal Mushrooms." Chaga is considered one of the most powerful healing plants on Earth by Traditional Chinese Medicine. Once harvested, the Chaga Mushroom is air dried and broken into chunks or ground into a course or fine powder. Chaga is steeped in hot water to make a medicinal Chaga Mushroom Tea or matured into a potent Chaga Mushroom Extract. Chaga is so versatile is can also be consumed directly; as Chaga Mushroom Powder the mushroom can be added to soups, stews, smoothies etc. to add nutritional value to everyday meals.
Chaga Mushrooms have the ability to improve the immune response, lower high blood sugar and combat abnormal and mutagenic cell growth. Chaga also has the capacity to reduce inflammation, is anti-inflammatory, relieves pain and purifies the blood and protects the liver. Chaga has also been used to prevent cancer. Chaga Mushrooms are able to multitask on so many levels making it a very powerful adaptogen for the body. The Chaga Mushroom truly is an amazing polypore fungus that supports our overall health and well being. Learn more about the Health Benefits of The Chaga Mushroom.
