Chaga tea, also known as the ‘herbal healer’ is one of the most powerful sought after mushrooms on earth. Recently it has been publicised as having anti cancer properties. Among many benefits studies have shown that it had anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-candida and even anti-malarial! And the 2005 publication “The Pharmacological Potential of Mushrooms” reported it is “anti-HIV” , as that tests showed that chaga powder inhibited HIV symptoms!
Chaga is considered a “medicinal mushroom” in many european countries. Recently we have seen the benefits of these mushrooms in cancer cases. It has proven to be effective against breast cancers, cervical cancers, prostate cancers as well as lymphoma and leukemia. I was recommended by my naturopath to buy the tea powder from Nativean and I currently am waiting for mine in the post.
It is wild chaga mushroom powder from the forests of Finland.
