Chaga, the King of Medicinal Mushrooms, has been used in Russia as far back as the 12th-century. Cree healers call it posahkan or wiskakecak omikih. As the story goes, Wisakecak is a mythological character threw a scab, which he had mistaken for dried meat against a birch tree. To this day, it remains on the tree to benefit mankind. The Cree also used the sweet-smelling fungus as an incense and carried it as tinder for starting fires.

Chaga extract is one of the highest sources of antioxidants in the world.

For benefits for consuming chaga please do your own research.
