WTF is Chaga?
Chaga is often referred to as the King of functional / medicinal mushrooms; ‘King Shroomi’ we affectionately call it around here. While it may be new to you, this mushroom has been used in Ayurvedic & Chinese medicine, as well as cultures around the world for over 5,000 years.
Benefits of Chaga Mushroom include:
- balance energy
- reduce fatigue
- combat inflammation
- supercharge your immune system
This mushroom grows on the sides of birch trees in colder climates and while it may look like a lowly chunk of coal or dirt, it shouldn’t be underestimated. It contains a variety of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that nourish overall well-being.
Chaga contains massive amounts of the pigment melanin, which is a potent antioxidant. Ready to nerd out with us for a second? Chaga has one of the highest ORAC antioxidant scores of any food. ORAC is short for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, and is the measurement of total antioxidant power of foods. The benefits of Chaga Mushroom are endless.
Woah, tuck that fact in your back pocket for your next dinner party. So consider chaga your daily bodyguard.
