We have been able to source a supplier who offers wild-harvested Scottish Chaga mushroom, harvested from native woods in a sustainable and respectable way to nature. We brew our Chaga into tea, depending on the season it comes ground or in nice chunks but always of the best quality and lab tested.
Chaga tea supports our immune system to fight harmful pathogens. The polysaccharides found in Chaga promote the creation of white blood cells, one of the body!s primary means of defence. Chaga is also a great source of vitamin B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin) and B5 (pantothenic acid), all of which have traditionally been used to boost immune function and reduce stress and anxiety.
Researchers in Japan and China have studied anticancer properties of the polysaccharides found in some mushrooms, including Chaga, and found the effects comparable to chemotherapy. Chaga is also called the "Gift from God" or the "King of Herbs," the Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) has been respected for thousands of years throughout Russia, Korea, Eastern and Northern Europe, Northern United States, North Carolina mountains and Canada.
Since the 16th century Chaga has been used in folk and botanical medicine throughout Eastern Europe. A birch fungus, Chaga grows on living trunks of mature birch trees in cold climates
In Norway Chaga translates to "cancer polypore" in reference to its fungal appearance and alleged medicinal properties. Use of Chaga in Chinese medicine dates back thousands of years where locals in the mountain region of Siberia drank Chaga tea daily, inhaled Chaga and used it topically (on the skin). Chaga has balancing properties which may stimulate the body to produce natural killer (NK) cells. NK cells fight infections and battle tumour growth.
