One of the worlds most powerful sources of antioxidants, The Chaga mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) is used to boost immunity, lower inflammation and promote radiant skin.
Known as the “king of medicinal mushrooms” Chaga is a parasitic fungi that sprouts out of Birch trees in colder climates, such as Canada and Siberia. It disguises itself as a clump of burnt charcoal, but don’t be fooled, the interior is bright orange in colour and incredibly potent

What is dual extraction?
When mushrooms are raw, their nutrients aren’t as readily available for the human body to absorb. Dual extraction is when both alcohol and hot water is used to draw out the medicinal compounds - this enhances its effect on your body as it becomes more bioavailable.
Are there any side effects of Chaga Extract?
Chaga is generally a safe, well tolerated mushroom. There is evidence that suggests Chaga tinctures could interact with medication such as insulin, so it’s best to consult your doctor before consuming Chaga alongside any other traditional medication. Immune compromised individuals should always seek advice from their doctor before taking Chaga products.
