Did you know? Chaga is not technically a mushroom, though it’s often referred to as one in mushroom and herb books. The part of chaga that looks like it might be a mushroom is technically a woody, tough mass of mycelium, known as a sclerotium (pl. sclerotia), which is a strange word derived from the Greek word sklēros, meaning hard. We do refer to chaga as a ‘mushroom’ so that people don’t get too confused, but we thought it best we let you know! :) Chaga is used as a traditional folk medicine in many parts of Europe, China, and Canada. Chaga is a powerful adaptogen (betulinic acid) and immune herb (polysaccharides), that may also help to counter fatigue, reduce inflammation, increase stamina and assist with stress management. Chaga is a potent antioxidant that contains high levels of longevity enzyme; superoxide dismutase (SOD). Chaga is also the highest natural plant source of melanin. Chaga only grows on birch trees, and starts growing in the heartwood of the tree, slowly pushing its way out through the bark to emerge as the hard, dark lump that we harvest for our elixirs.
