Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) is one of the most well-known and highly valued functional mushrooms. Our chaga is wild-harvested in Lapland, Finland.
Chaga is a mushroom that has been used by ancient cultures for thousands of years and given a reverent nickname, “Gift from God.” Chaga’s tough texture is similar to wood, with a dark black outer layer and a golden-brown interior. It is usually found co-existing with birch trees in some of the harshest and coldest climates in the world — including the northern U.S., Canada, Scandinavia and Russia. It not only survives in these climates, but it strengthens itself and its host tree in the process.
Chaga mushroom is used to reduce inflammation, enhance endurance, boost immune function and fight viral infections.
Our favourite way to enjoy chaga tincture is to start our day with it in the morning. A pipette’s full straight under the tongue or added to coffee, tea or smoothie.
To make our potent, organic chaga tincture, we only the fruiting bodies of the mushrooms, no mycelium. It is extracted with ultrasonic assisted extraction (UAE) technology, as well as alcohol and hot water. With this innovative extraction method our aim is to maximise the bioavailability of the compounds of interest found in chaga.
