This is a coarse ground powder (mix of powder and small chunks) of wild Chaga Mushroom (inonotus obliquus), harvested in the Siberian region of Russia, with care for the trees. Carefully dried at sub-40 degree Celsius temperatures.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this herb has long been known as the King of Mushrooms for its longevity enhancing properties. As a tonic herb, this powerful fungal ally contains many beneficial compounds. Chaga Mushroom is said to possess anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and adaptogenic properties. We like to call Chaga Mushroom the immune system of the forest, and find it supports us just the same as it does the trees. Chaga is a powerful adaptogen that acts to harmonize the individual’s body and mind towards a state of equilibrium. This means that depending on the state of our body, Chaga may give us energy, or be relaxing if we need a good rest. Chaga makes a great coffee alternative for some, while others find it is best used to wind-down before bed.
