About Organic Chaga Mushroom Powder
Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) comes from the northern regions of Scandinavia. The mushroom is harvested in winter when the active ingredients are at their strongest.
The ‘diamond of the forest’ has been used by the Ainu people of East Asia for at least 600 years, perhaps longer.
Chaga helps with stiff muscles, supports the immune system and aids digestion. Chaga contains many different active substances, such as antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, phenols and enzymes that can be used very well for powerful teas and tinctures.
Our Chaga comes directly from the forests of Sweden where it is harvested and dried.
