What is Chaga for?

Chaga mushrooms, also known as “black gold,” grow wild in places like Siberia, Northern Canada, Alaska and some northern areas of the continental United States. They are a type of fungus that mainly grow on the outside of birch trees in very cold climates. They have been used as traditional medicine in Northern European countries as well as Russia for hundreds of years. They are a nutrient-dense superfood and have a high antioxidant content. In fact, they have one of the highest ORAC scores of any food.
