Chaga History

The history of the chaga mushroom is rich, ancient and more than compelling. The first evidence of the chaga mushroom’s existence came circa 4,000 B.C., when Otzi the Iceman roamed the Alpine region of the planet. When the four thousand-year-old mummy was discovered, he had chaga in his pockets, which he purportedly carried with him as a medicine for intestinal inflictions. In 200 B.C., ancient Chinese healers deemed chaga the “king of herbal medicine.” For centuries chaga has been used as a healing tonic and an amazingly powerful adaptogen herb. Today, chaga is making a welcome comeback, and it is our intention to be a part of the venerable mushroom’s emergence into our modern day health care system.
