Chaga is becoming a household name. The scientific name of Chaga is inonotus obliquus, meaning, Chaga is a mushroom. Chaga looks nothing like any other mushroom I have seen. Chaga has a hard, blackish colored exterior and the interior is much softer being a dark, yellowish brown color; the texture rather grainy and corky. Chaga normally grows on birch trees, in the form of a conk and is found in the Northern Hemisphere where the climates are colder; Canada, China, Northern Europe, Northern United States and Russia. Chaga loves these cold weather conditions, making it favorable to growth. Chaga has many health benefits and is used medicinally. Chaga has a history of successful treatment of different types of cancers. Chaga has also been known to treat tuberculosis. Chaga is used for proper digestion and Chaga is a strong anti-viral remedy. Chaga’s uses are more numerous than I can mention and I make Chaga the major part of my daily supplement regime.
