Chaga - What is Chaga?

This was a complete new find for us. Very interesting to learn about. The couple that was sharing was very well informed and shared a lot of information with us.

Chaga mushroom is a type of fungus that grows mainly on the bark of birch trees in cold climates, such as in Northern Europe, Siberia, Russia, Korea, Northern Canada and Alaska.

Chaga produces a woody growth, or conk, which looks similar to a clump of burnt charcoal - roughly 10-15 inches in size. The inside, however, reveals a soft core with an orange color.

For centuries, Chaga has been used as a traditional medicine in eastern countries, mainly to boost immunity and overall health. Helps fight inflammation, prevents and fights against cancer, lowers blood sugar, lowers cholesterol. Just note Chaga could pose risks for people on insulin or those with diabetes due to its impact on blood sugar.

It can be found available in tea form or capsuled supplement form.

Taking Chaga with either warm or cold water is believed to release its medicinal properties.

It is very low in calories and very high in fiber and loaded with antioxidants. If you aren't familiar with antioxidants - they help fight free radicals in the body, which keeps the free radicals from locking onto our cells in our bodies causing health problems.

Just a note always do your own research before trying anything new, don't rely on this information. You are always advised to speak to a doctor or nutritionist as well.

This information is from Healthline

I am excited to try Chaga and we will see how it goes.

If you use or have used Chaga before, let me know your thoughts, I always love to learn from others.
