Chaga mushroom (innonotus obliquus) is a fungus that grows primarily on live birch trees in cold climates. Acting as a cancer that will eventually kill the tree, chaga draws nutrients from the host tree that can be extracted and used for medicinal purposes. Our Alaska chaga is sustainably harvested from wild Alaskan birch trees near our homestead in Alaska's Susitna Valley, and is an Alaska Grown product. Our pure, cold climate Alaska chaga - high in antioxidants - may be used as an anti-inflammatory and to boost the immune system. There is a great deal of research on chaga. Evidence has been found to show that chaga, if extracted properly, may be effective against cancers and to decrease side effects of cancer treatments. While we make no such claims we do believe that chaga, known as an adaptogen, is energizing and may be effective in stimulating the body to heal itself. Our cold-climate Alaska chaga, harvested in remote areas of Alaska, is free of environmental contaminants.
4 ounce bag fine chopped wild Alaska chaga. Our Alaska chaga tea is delicious and energizing and can be served cold or hot. We prefer it steeped strong to extract the maximum in medicinal properties, but it can also be lightly steeped as a flavorful and refreshing tea. I like to prepare birch chaga chai - with cinnamon and ginger and sweetened, of course, with our own pure organic birch syrup or Wild Alaska Birched Honey; or mix it 50/50 with my morning coffee. My favorite local restaurant makes a wonderful cold citrus chaga, steeping it lightly and adding lemon, orange, and birched honey. The tea can be steeped once and re-used to steep again for a lighter brew. The entire 4 oz package will make 2 gallons of a strong chaga tea; or many cups of a light infusion. Play with it and see what you prefer. There are endless possibilities for good flavor, with the added benefit of good health!
2 ounce dropper bottle. Our wild Alaska chaga is double extracted in water and alcohol to provide multiple benefits to the immune system. We add a small quantity of our late run pure organic birch syrup for a little added sweetness and inherent minerals. Suggested dosage is 2-3 droppers twice/day under the tongue or in any beverage.
