Chaga Mushroom has long been prized by natural health practitioners. Its use dates as far back as the 16th century where it was traditionally used in Eastern European folk medicine to treat a variety of ailments. Worldwide it is considered 'The Medicinal King of Herbs' and offers numerous health benefits with no known side effects.
Chaga contains large amounts of betulinic acid in a form that can be ingested orally, as well as the full spectrum of immune-stimulating phytochemicals such as Beta Glycans and polysaccharides which may enhance immune function by stimulating the body's ability to set up cellular defenses. It contains over 215 phytonutrients, has 25 to 50 times more SOD antioxidants than Agarigus, CoQ 10, vitamin C and wild blueberries, and is rated among the highest on the ORAC. Chaga contains numerous B vitamins, flavonoids, phenols, minerals, and enzymes. It is also one of the world’s densest sources of pantothenic acid, a vitamin which is needed by the adrenal glands as well as digestive organs. It also contains riboflavin and niacin in significant amounts.
In Asian culture, the Chaga Mushroom is referred to as the 'Mushroom of Immortality' and is used to boost immunity and support the body's ability to eliminate toxins while stimulating the nervous system. Raw Chaga Mushroom is a wonderful source of melanin. The Chaga Mushroom is known for its wonderful antioxidant and inflammation reducing properties and is said to have the highest antioxidant level of any mushroom.
The Chaga Mushroom is native to Western Siberia, Canada and USA and typically grows on the trunks of birch trees, from which it draws all of its nutrients. Chaga mushroom feeds on the white part of birch tree bark where the antimutagenic action of the molecules inhibits free-radical oxidation producing interferons enhancing DNA repair. This white part of the birch bark is also where the Chaga Mushroom obtains the powerful betulinic acid. Our Chaga Mushrooms come from the United States and Canada.
Many reports have been published concerning the health promoting functions of this mushroom. It is against Etsy policies for me to tell you about all of its properties, however I strongly encourage you to do your own research and am happy to answer any questions you might have.
Dried mushrooms are not supposed to be a dried replica of the original fresh mushroom that magically rehydrates to its original form, but rather should be thought of as a means for flavoring a dish much like a spice. Dried Mushrooms tend to intensify in flavor as they dry, often hardly resembling their original flavor. The magic of these mushrooms is in rehydrating the mushrooms to yield a flavor-filled mushroom stock. The mushrooms themselves can be cut up and used or discarded after the mushroom stock is made. Just keep in mind the textural differences between the rehydrated and the fresh forms. Some rehydrated mushrooms will prove to be more texturally appealing than others, but the flavor will always astound.
