Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral medicinal properties... Thanks to its high content of Phenols, Minerals, Vitamin B, Enzymes, Amino Acids, Fibers and Flavonoids

Chaga, your new best friend!

Have you ever heard the word Chaga? If your answer is no, this discovery will certainly beautify your day and if you've heard of it before, you will find that additional research has shown that its effectiveness is not to underestimate.

Chaga is a fungus that grows on trees such as birch in Quebec and Canada, which has a reputation to resist extreme weather conditions, so it's no surprising to find that it lives in North American forests. For millennia, tribes of Siberia, Russia, China, Japan and others have seen it as a product with supernatural powers that could cure incurable health problems.

Its Health Benefits:

Chaga (Inonotus obliquus) has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral medicinal properties... Thanks to its high content of Phenols, Minerals, Vitamin B, Enzymes, Amino Acids, Fibers and Flavonoids. It is mainly used for gastrointestinal disorders (anti-inflammatory action), people love it for its support in cancer treatments (antioxidant action and presence of Phenols) and it is also used to improve skin problems,  arthritis (anti-inflammatory action), influenza (antiviral action) and diabetes (Fiber and vitamin B5 content). Its therapeutic effects observed in the laboratory, industry and beliefs gives it a growing interest, which deserves to be known.

You will find that it is now offered in different forms such as tea, chunks, powder, liquid and capsules. It is so popular that even a brewer in Quebec has designed a beer with Chaga in it (Brasserie Générale), but do not think that taking four or five beer in a day will give you its healing benefits... unfortunately for us! For my part, I tasted it in infusion and I found that it had a slightly sweet taste similar to maple water, and remember that the birch can also produce a sweet sap and obviously , this sacchariferous taste takes shape in the fungus that lives on the tree by saprophytism or parasitism.

In summary, on a regular basis, you will feel your immune system become more powerful, allowing you to fight viral infections and observe considerable energy gain. With an optimal dose, you will see a decrease in your joint pain, your gastrointestinal problems and your recurring dermatitis. It is so versatile that it is even possible to use it in many recipes to impress your friends who will be charmed by this new discovery.

Preparation for infusion :

The purpose of the infusion is to never bring cooking to the boiling point (otherwise the active properties will be destroyed) and let it simmer until the liquid is dark and dense, similar to the texture Coffee. You can then drain and store your excess tea and you will be able to reuse the large pieces 2 to 3 times, for future infusions if you keep them in the freezer!

Clearly, the capsule formats allow you to have a precise strength in milligram and to be able to consume the Chaga very quickly and know that very good companies have already done the work for you!
