In the depths of the boreal forests, surrounded by hundreds of trees, you will find the King of Mushrooms. Originating from the Russian word, Tschaga, this black and woody endophytic fungus, scientifically known asInonotus Obliquus,has been the subject of legends and myth about immortal health and longevity. Growing primarily on the birch tree (of all kinds), Chaga can live over 25 years before it consumes the tree. It’s medicinal properties are so vast and powerful that some scientists think the mushroom spores came from space. While it’s been known in Eastern medicine for thousands of years, Chaga is gaining popularity in the West and is rapidly growing as an anti-cancer, anti-aging, anti-inflammatory super food.
