Chaga mushrooms are medicinal mushrooms that are found on trees, mainly birch trees located in the northern hemisphere. Chaga mushrooms have a long history of use as a healing substance in Eurasia and was revered and well documented in Chinese Medicine as one of the most powerful mushroom substances on the planet.
Chaga contains beta glucans, which are complex polysaccharides that are responsible for their potent immune supporting properties. Chaga also has a very high ORAC value, demonstrating an extremely high level of antioxidants, much higher than other foods known for their high antioxidant content like blueberries and acai. Chaga is also rich in melanin, a substance that protects the DNA and helps maintain healthy skin. Again, this is just the tip of the iceberg for Chaga and its health promoting properties.
