      What is Chaga Mushroom?

Why? Because this charred on-the-outside, rust-colored fuzz on-the-inside-looking fungus that grows on the outside of birch trees is somewhat of an ancient healing miracle.

      A Little Chaga Mushroom History

      The first evidence of the chaga mushroom is dated as far back as 4000 B.C. Since the beginning, this fungus has been utilized for health purposes, often to sooth intestinal upset, and, later, to support a sluggish or failing immune system. Around 200 B.C. Chinese healers began employing chaga when practicing medicine. Today, drinking chaga tea has become a bit trendy. But as you now know, this seemingly new wave of mushroom healing isn’t new at all. In the last 50 years, at least 1,600 research documents have presented the health-enriching aspects of the chaga mushroom.
