Chaga - The King of the Mushrooms
What Is Chaga?
Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is known in Siberia as the “Mushroom of Immortality”. It is a powerful gift of nature that has been used for thousands of years to improve people`s health. The Japanese call Chaga “The Diamond of the Forest” and the Chinese say it is the “King of Plants”. Chaga grows in cold climates, takes 3 to 5 years to grow and is very rare. In order to survive in this harsh Nordic climate, Chaga stores various natural compounds and, therefore, has very strong properties. It is far from your typical soft and squishy mushroom, it actually looks and feels like burnt wood or charcoal. This black medicinal mushroom with orange fruiting body is rich in Vitamin B, flavonoids, phenols, minerals, and enzymes. In addition, it is one of the richest sources of pantothenic acid. We offer only wild-harvested Chaga that is hand-picked. Our harvesting process preserves the life of all living things, minimizing environmental impact, especially the birch trees that Chaga likes to grow on, and we thank every tree that we harvest from to show our gratitude.
