The chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) grows on birch trees in the Northern Hemisphere. Chaga has been used for centuries to make a healthy tea with a pleasant flavor. Recently, numerous beneficial compounds have been discovered in chaga including: high levels of antioxidants, triterpene sterols, betulinic acid, polyphenols, phytonutrients (superoxide dismutase, beta-glucans, melanin, polysaccharides, etc.), adaptogens, amino acids, and numerous vitamins and minerals.
Why Wild Alaska Chaga?
Wild Alaska Chaga from Fairbanks is the northernmost (Latitude 65° North) chaga you can buy in the Western Hemisphere. It sustains colder winter temperatures (-60° F) than does chaga found in other regions. These two unique growing conditions may create the highest potential concentration of beneficial constituents found in any chaga on Earth.
