Our Wild Chaga is of exceptional quality and highly ethical sourcing practices, hence the reason we are offering this to you! We love it!


THE POTENTIAL OF CHAGA

1) Chaga has been studied for its anti-viral, anti-cancer, anti-fungal, anti-allergic, anti-malarial, and anti-tumor properties. This is good because it may help you avoid or fight the above.

2) Chaga is LOADED with antioxidants (with an exceptional ORAC value, it beats almost all other foods).

3) Chaga may support stomach issues including IBS, ulcers and gastritis.

4) Chaga has been consumed for thousands of years because of these potential health benefits.

5) Chaga contains ample melanin, reported to be a gene protector and DNA repairer.


CHAGA CHUNKS DIRECTIONS

Add 2 or 3 chaga chunks to a clean pan or glass kettle, simmer the chaga for 15 minutes or more until the tea is a deep brown colour. The chaga can then be simmered again the next day or later that day. Important note: If you keep your chaga to use numerous times then make sure you store it fully submerged in water.

You can use the same chaga chunks a few times, cutting them with in half every few times your simmer them.

(When I feel that the chunks have been well and truly simmered of all they have to give I add more chunks to the pot (leaving the old ones in) and continue. Once the packet is finished I put all of them in a blender and then soak them in alcohol to extract other beneficial properties of the mushroom, which is a rewarding process in itself).


WHAT'S IN THE BAG...

100% Wildcrafted Chaga Mushroom Chunks. That’s it!


CHUNKS OR EXTRACT POWDER?

Choose the chunks to enjoy the ritual of making the tea which can be re-heated many times. The cool chaga tea can even be enjoyed as a base to your smoothie. Choose the extract powder for more convenience and the dual extract - you can add it to hot water and drink up OR, add it to your smoothie.

CHAGA THE ADAPTOGEN

As an adaptogen, chaga is the ideal supplement, stimulating the body's immune system and ability to heal itself. It is used as a tonic so may be consumed daily. One should be aware of taking chaga in conjunction with immune suppressing medicines, the effects of which chaga may negate. Additionally, consuming chaga mushroom in combination with blood-thinning medications may magnify their effects. Chaga may also interact with diabetes medications, which may cause blood sugar levels to fall too low.
