Chaga is an immune support supplement from the Canadian forest, sustainably harvested from white birch trees (Betula papyrifera). The taste is relatively subtle and earthy.
Chaga is a medicinal mushroom that grows on birch trees (here in Canada) and has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years. Compared to other plants, Chaga contains one of the highest levels of anti-oxidants which has boosted its popularity as a natural cancer treatment. Chaga has potent immune supporting properties because of its immune stimulating phytochemicals. It also contains betulinic acid and super oxide dismutase which protect against oxide damage and neutralize free radicals in the body! Regular use of this tea has been said to alkalize the body, calm the nervous system, cleanse the liver and kidneys, eliminate unwanted metals from the body, prevent early aging, repair DNA and also improve adrenal function!
