What is Chaga Mushroom?
Chaga is a functional mushroom, which means it provides support for your body's nervous system and assists in stress management and immune function.
Chaga has been used for centuries in Russian culture. It is found in cold northern forests, growing high on birch trees. It’s long been known for its powerful dose of antioxidants and anti-cancer properties.
During WWII, Chaga was used as a coffee replacement as it has an earthy flavor with a hint of vanilla.
In order for Chaga to be absorbable it needs to go through an extraction process. This can be done by boiling the mushroom to make tea, in tincture form (soaked in alcohol for a minimum of 8 week), or creating an extraction powder.
Benefits of Chaga:
- Strengthens the immune system
- Balances blood sugar and blood pressure
- Supports a healthy stress response
Not only is this amazing mushroom packed with incredible health benefits, but when combined with cacao, like in our Chaga Chocolate, the absorption is increased!
