Tell me more about Mother Earth Chaga

Chaga is thought to help support the immune system and improve overall health. Additionally, it is often found growing on birch trees in the colder regions, such as Siberia and Canada, and it's known for its unique appearance, which is a black, burnt-looking exterior.

 

Taste

Chaga has quite an earthy taste, similar to coffee but not as strong.

 

Defence & Skin

Chaga mushroom is often referred to as the "king of mushrooms" due to its potential health benefits, particularly for immune support.

Chaga mushrooms contain various bioactive compounds, including polysaccharides and beta-glucans, which are believed to have immune-stimulating effects.

Chaga contains kojic acid and betulinic acid, compounds that are often used to nourish and hydrate the skin, as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles. (1) This fungus contains a plethora of antioxidants. For instance, one cup of Chaga has the equivalent of 600 blueberries in terms of antioxidants, which may help support the immune system. (2)

 

Energy

Chaga, unlike coffee, doesn’t give you caffeine crashes or jitters. It may provide a slow release of energy. One rodent study performed on 64 mice showed that the mice that were given Chaga mushrooms had longer physical endurance and were fatigued less often than those that were not administered Chaga mushrooms (3).

 

History

Chaga has a long history of use in traditional medicine, particularly in Siberia, Russia, and other parts of Asia.

Chaga has been used for centuries in Siberian and Russian folk medicine. It is believed that the indigenous people of Siberia were among the first to discover and use Chaga for its potential health benefits.

The traditional use of Chaga was primarily for immune support, overall well-being, and to help alleviate various health conditions.

Chaga was used in Finland during the Second World War as a substitute for coffee as it is native to Finnish people and has a similar earthy taste!
