Chaga mushrooms typically grow in birch trees where the climate is cold – which is mostly in the Northern Hemisphere. The mushroom really doesn’t look very nice when you look at it for the first time, however once you get to know what it has inside in form of nutrients, it suddenly starts looking very appealing. It’s also been gaining in popularity.
Chaga mushrooms have been used all over the eastern countries in teas for their health benefits*. They are well established because of their high profile benefits – which of course in this country (the USA) we can’t make claims for because they haven’t been evaluated by the FDA – so, for everything we mention here, note the “*” and disclaimer at the bottom of the page.
Recently, the mushrooms have gained popularity in the West and are now easily available. They are highly concentrated with mycelium that comes naturally from birch trees.
