I was almost finished my first bottle of Chaga when I realized I had stopped taking my pain pills. Also, my mood is much brighter.
I notice a difference in my skin and hair, my sleep patterns have alsoimproved dramatically!
I was amazed with the difference in how I felt. My pain was gone. After I told all my friends about it, they have all had great results too!
Chaga is a fungus that grows in abundance in the forests where we harvest. Though sometimes called a mushroom, the fruiting body of this fungus is called a “conk”, and has the appearance of a large, charcoal-like mass.
Raw chaga has an earthy, though not particularly strong taste, with a virtually unnoticeable flavor in our coffee and tea blends.
How to Store Chaga
When storing dry, raw Chaga products, any airtight container will do. If you have already simmered your Chaga once to make tea and intend to re-use it, it should be stored in your freezer in the meantime.
Betulinic acid is responsible for much of Chaga’s antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. This compound is found in the bark of birch trees. Unlike mycelium cultivated Chaga, our wild-harvested Chaga absorbs betulinic acid from the birch trunks it grows on.
