What is Chaga?
Shen Nung, the father of Traditional Chinese Medicine named the Chaga as the “king of herbs” in his book in 2696 BC. He provided several remedies containing Chaga. However, it was the Khanty Tribe of Western Siberia that turned Chaga into a tea in the 12th century for detoxification and digestion support.

Chaga mushrooms don’t look like a traditional mushroom with a discernible cap and stem. Instead, they resemble a lump of dark brown coal with a rich orange center inside. Chaga can be found growing on the birch tree across the Northern Hemisphere, though it is becoming increasingly rare to find them in the wild.

What are Some Chaga Mushroom Benefits?
Studies conducted on the benefits of Chaga mushrooms have been very promising. These results have prompted more and more studies each year.  Some of the reported benefits of Chaga include:

  • Immune System Support: Chaga stimulates white blood cells to effectively fight off viruses and bacteria by promoting the formation of beneficial cytokines.
  • Enhanced Cognitive Performance:  Regularly consuming this mushroom has been known to increase one’s mental flexibility and creativity and reduce stress levels – leading to a more positive outlook on life.

Are There Chaga Mushroom Side Effects?
Consuming too much Chaga can cause acute oxalate nephropathy, which could result in acute kidney damage. With such a high amount of antioxidants, one might think that this couldn’t happen, but too much of anything is not good.
