Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) is a type of fungus that typically grows on birch trees in the colder climates of the Northern Hemisphere.  Widely recognised for its benefits, it is known as the ‘Gift from God’ amongst Siberian cultures.  Chaga is naturally rich in polyphenols, unsaturated fatty acids, coenzyme Q and vitamin K.

Studies have shown potent beneficial effects on the immune system and Chaga has the highest rating in the ORAC scale, a scale which was designed to measure the ability of food to deal with oxidative stress and absorb free radical damage.  As an adaptogen, Chaga is unusual in that it can stimulate immune response while simultaneously reducing inflammation; this makes it potentially very powerful in combating inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.  Research also suggests that Chaga may have the potential to prevent or inhibit the growth of tumours; it may also lower LDL cholesterol and support blood sugar management.
