Chaga Mushroom {Inonotus obliquus}

Chaga is a nutrient dense superfood that contains B vitamins, Vitamin D, potassium, iron, magnesium, calcium, selenium, and copper. Chaga supports the immune system, fights inflammation, and lowers blood pressure. Chaga is a lovely coffee alternative used for its rich taste and bitter, coffee-like flavour.  It has been studied for its ability to stimulate the immune system and draw the life force out of tumours.

Habitat Found most commonly on Birch trees as well as Alder, Beech and other hardwood trees in cold northern regions.

A Finnish tale: “There was a legend about the first man who discovered Chaga in the forest. He was older than old, a long white beard that trailed before him & a long stretch of snow-white hair that followed behind him. He was so old that he was unable to stand up straight, though found himself in one of the beautiful Birch forests of Suomi where he stumbled upon the first Chaga. Upon drinking it, it was said that his hair turned pitch black & his youth was fully restored both physically & energetically.” Possibly a tale about the benefits of Chagas high antioxidant content?*
