Chaga is known as the “King of Medicinal Mushrooms” and rightfully so, it is packed full of bioactive functional compounds. The hearty black-crusted conk grows on birch trees and is not actually a mushroom, but rather a hard mass of mycelium, or sclerotia. Chagas' ability to survive the harshest winter temps may be a key indicator of why it is so potent with medicinal properties.
Chaga conks contain beta glucans, phenolic antioxidants and triterpenes. Interestingly, Chaga pulls the triterpene betulin from the birch bark and converts this to betulinic acid, which is responsible for many of the health benefits. See research tab for more information.
