The Chaga Mushroom - King of Medicinal Mushrooms
'My older Sister is dying of Pancreatic cancer. She now is seeing a holistic herbalist. She gave her this tea. I have struggled all my life with a bad immune system. I ordered Chaga tea and started drinking it twice a day on top of the tincture. One week into it, I am shocked how much better I feel. I am about to order more so I do not run out...I am spreading the word on this product. I have grown tired of being sick all the time and modern medicine. Thank you.' - Kathryn M.
The Chaga mushroom, Inonotus obliquus is an ancient folk remedy that has been valued for its health benefits for centuries. Chaga mushrooms are often compared to similar fungi like the Reishi, Shitake, Maitake and Oyster mushrooms. Chaga is a unique polypore fungi that grows on living trees. A symbiotic relationship is formed between the Chaga mushroom and its host that can sustain one another during their entire lifespan of up to 20 years.
Chaga Mushrooms may be found on wounded or dying white birch trees in temperate forests around the northern hemisphere. Chaga looks like encrusted black formations; the sterile conk or mycelium grows out of wounds sustained after storms and other impacts that break branches. Chaga covers the tree's wound and protects it from invading micro organisms. The host tree and the Chaga can co-exist for many years and the mushroom can be harvested up to three times over the course of its lifetime.
The Chaga Mushrooms is known as the "King of Medicinal Mushrooms." Considered by many cultures as one of the most powerful healing plants on Earth and used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine. After it as been harvested, the Chaga needs to be air dried and broken into chunks or ground into a course or fine powder. The outer cell walls of Chaga are protected by chitin and need to be broken down or extracted. Over the centuries chaga has been extracted by steeping it in hot water to make a medicinal Chaga Mushroom Tea or matured into a potent Chaga Mushroom Extract by soaking it in alcohol. Both the hot water and alcohol methods over long periods of time help to dissolve the chitin protecting the valuable nutritional contents inside the Chaga. Chaga can be consumed directly as a Chaga Mushroom Powder. Chaga powder mushroom can be added to soups, stews, smoothies etc. to add nutritional value to everyday meals, and still maintain high concentrations of mushroom polysaccharides. It is still advisable to use some means of extraction however to achieve the most benefit from the mushroom.
