Chaga, often called the “King of the Mushrooms,” has been a staple in Scandinavian, Russian, and Siberian traditional medicine for centuries. People turn to Chaga for its nutritional and functional benefits. In the wild, this mushroom thrives in cold regions, including Northern and Eastern Europe, North America, and Russia.

What is Chaga?
Chaga, scientifically known as Inonotus obliquus, is a parasitic fungus that grows primarily on birch trees. The inside of the fungus is orange, but its high melanin content makes it look like a black, burnt lump from a tree.
Because of its appearance, Russian locals often associate the Chaga mushroom with a cancerous tumor, partly because it eventually kills the tree on which it grows. However, for humans and animals, it’s cherished for its potential health benefits (1, 2, 3).
Chaga contains active substances such as polysaccharides, triterpenes, betulin, melanin, and flavonoids, which can help improve the body’s balance and stress tolerance. Like all other mushroom supplements sold by MushPeak, Chaga contains no psychoactive substances and is not a mind-altering drug.
What does Chaga taste like?
Chaga has an earthy flavor with a bitter undertone, often compared to a blend of coffee and black tea. Some people like it, while others find it too bitter. It’s definitely easier to buy Chaga in the form of capsules. That way, your body gets the best properties quickly.
