Siberian Chaga Mushroom
Siberian Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) is a wild mushroom, that grows on birch trees in extremely cold regions of northern latitudes including Siberia, Alaska, Baltic regions, Scandinavia and northern Canada, where temperatures fall below - 30 F for the 2-3 months per year required to sustain maximum growth and potency. Siberian Chaga Mushroom is "wild harvested" and cannot be commercially cultivated.

Chaga Mushroom grows naturally on birch trees. The Chaga Mushroom conk grows in cooperation with the tree over a 5 to 7 year period, thriving in the harsh winter environments, absorbing life-sustaining nutrients from the birch tree. Chaga Mushroom is classified as neither a plant nor animal. The DNA structure is thirty (30%) per cent more human than plant. Chaga Mushroom is classified scientifically as a Basidiomycetes mushroom and is far superior to the rest of 150 species of Basidiomycetes, that have been classified as medicinal mushrooms.

Western Medicine is now beginning to study, evaluate, and test Chaga Mushroom for the active compounds underlying its historically understood homeopathic benefits. Whole supplements like Chaga Mushroom, offer a complex balance of active compounds, delivery mineral structures, and co-agents, more effective to sustaining a healthy immune balance than synthesized isolated compounds.

EartHerbs Siberian Chaga Mushroom is harvested only from specifically selected birch trees that are at least 25 years old and when the mushroom bud weighs at least 6 pounds. Only 3 birch trees out of 10,000 meet these quality standards required for maximum nutritional benefit.

Our supplier, EartHerbs L.L.C., is the exclusive importer into the United States of a medically licensed Estonian company, that wild harvests and manufactures Siberian Chaga and other herbs for sale, to the public, since 1991.
