Chaga (Inonotus obligus) is a mushroom that typically grows on birch trees in the wild forests of North East Canada and Siberia. In Russia, it has been traditionally used as an herbal medicine, and is often referred to as the “King of Medicinal Mushrooms.”
This ongoing tradition has interested many researchers from the scientific community. Taking a look at the medical publications found on pubmed.com show that there is much research being done to validate this long-used and trusted herbal medicine.
Chaga has been traditionally used for its ability to shrink benign and malignant tumors. For some patients in Russia, it is the preferred method when faced with alternative treatments such as radiotherapy and surgery. Chaga is also very well known for its antioxidant properties and, of course, for their positive effects on one’s health and immunity.
Chaga contains antioxidants, polysaccharides, polyphenols, triterpenes like betulinic acid, minerals, vitamins B2 and D2 and many other beneficial nutrients.
