Chaga is a mushroom that grows over the course of many years on living birch trees, sucking the life force and medicine out of the tree and making it bio-available to us humans. Unlike most other tree mushrooms, chaga grows on living trees.
It is one of the most praised superfoods.
Among other health benefits, chaga tea is one of the richest sources of antioxidants in the world, containing not only some of the highest levels but also an exceptionally rare diversity of antioxidants. It is also alkalizing and an “adaptogen”, meaning that it works with your body’s unique constitution to bring you back toward balance. Chaga has been used for thousands of years by people in Siberia, Russia and other parts of Asia. In fact, the emperor of China once outlawed chaga, as he wanted exclusive use of this age-defying tonic so that he could appear eternally “young” while everyone around him grew old!
Chaga is known to many as the King of the forest. It stands a unique role in the ecosystem and is a catalyst of the complex and elaborate life force of the forest.
Chaga is now available to you with love and kindness.
What is chaga good for?
Studies have shown that Chaga has an exceptional abundance of antioxidants (Super Oxide Dismutate, Betulinic Acids, Betulin, Melanin, etc.). Antioxidants work at the cellular level: protecting the body from free radicals and cell degeneration such as cancer. It is believed that naturally-occuring waxes in the chaga form a protective sheath around your cells, keeping them strong and immune to premature degeneration and “aging”.
Chaga has beta glucans, a compound that strengthens the immune system. Chaga is believed to be anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Thus it is an effective tonic against candida and various infections.
Chaga is extremely alkalizing, and thus balances the whole body. It has no buzz; in fact, people find chaga to be very grounding.
