Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) has a long history of use in traditional medicine. Its earliest documented use dates from the 15th century. Today, studies show these extraordinary mushrooms are filled with compounds and nutrients that support health.
A potent adaptogen, the Chaga mushroom holds tremendous value for your overall everyday health as well as the potential for immune, cellular and gastrointestinal support.
Our Organic Chaga Mushroom is hand-harvested from living Arctic birch trees in approved Certified Organic designated areas within the wild forests of the Finnish Lapland north of the Arctic Circle. An area known for its ecological sustainability practices, remoteness and sparse population, its levels of pollutants, heavy metals and other impurities falls under levels of detection.
Compared to chaga that is produced indoors on grains, our wild-crafted Organic Chaga Mushroom from birch trees is higher in beta-glucans and other compounds, such as betulinic acid and triterpenoids. These beneficial compounds are unique to Chaga grown on birch trees, as the mushroom absorbs many of these compounds from the tree's bark.
