What's Chaga? Chaga is a very unique mushroom that doesn't really look like a mushroom at all. In fact, it looks like charcoal and only grows on Birch Trees in colder climates. It's a true superfood, offering a long list of nutritional benefits to those who enjoy it. What we like about 180 Foods is that they offer their Chaga in a format for just about everyone and every use from tea pebbles to bagging tea cut to a fine grind powder for baking and smoothies.
Why drink Chaga tea? Chaga has been used for centuries as a folk medicine for a wide range of ailments. As a tea, Chaga is a complex source of nutrition linked to many health benefits. The Chaga mushroom is renowned for its high levels of antioxidants, beta glucans, phytonutrients, polysaccharides, minerals and vitamins. Chaga mushrooms also absorb a unique and beneficial compound from their birch tree host, called betulinic acid. Betulinic acid is an oxidation product of betulin, a triterpenoid, believed to have potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral properties.
