Chaga mushroom is a potent medicinal fungi whose wide-ranging benefits have been recognized by traditional and modern medicine. Chaga, or inonotus obliquus, grows on birch and other trees in the Northern Hemisphere, and has been used by indigenous Siberian for thousands of years. In China, it was referred to as the “King of Plants,” and in Japan, “Diamond of the Forest.” Studies today find that it has numerous health benefits for the body and mind

Here are three amazing health benefits of chaga.

1) It keeps you energized.

Chaga is high in B-vitamins, which help convert our food into fuel and keep us energized and strong. There are eight b-vitamins, and each plays specific role in keeping our body running like a well-oiled machine. Learn what each one does here.

2) It supports the immune system.

Chaga balances the body’s immune system through its high content of Beta-D-Glucans, which regulate the immune system and help normalize cholesterol levels and blood sugar. It’s also rich in antioxidants, which help protect the body against cancer. It’s also been found to protect the body against viral and fungal infections, and protects against the growth of bacteria.

3) It helps you deal with stress better

Chaga helps your body deal with stress more efficiently. That’s because it is a powerful adaptogen, which helps the body become more resilient to stress by supporting adrenal function and eliminating toxic byproducts that result from metabolic processes associated with stress.

Chaga is classically consumed as a soothing tea regularly to stabilize bodily functions, relax, and keep us strong and healthy. Try Sun Potion’s “Chaga: King Healer Mushroom,” a chaga powder that’s wildcrafted in the remote parts of Northern Canada that can easily be brewed in a tea.

Faye Sakellaridis’s interest in psychedelics and consciousness led her to become an managing editor at The Alchemists Kitchen and Reality Sandwich, where she enjoys the scope of visionary thought that she regularly encounters from the site’s many contributors and the “rich spectrum of intellectual essays on consciousness through a diverse lens of art, culture, and science.” Faye recently earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Queens College in NYC, and her professional and academic life have been centered on journalism and creative writing. However, Faye—a classically trained improvisational pianist—says that spiritually, she identifies herself first and foremost identify as a musician. “Music is my most intuitive language,” she says. “If it weren't for music I'm not sure I'd truly understand the concept of the sublime. Writing and music are two are elemental parts of me, and communicating through them is what I do.”
