Chaga thrives in colder climates in the Northern Hemisphere and grows as a black hardened mass exclusively on Birch trees. However inside the Chaga conk it boasts a beautiful deep golden colour.
Chaga is thought to have the highest antioxidant capacity of any functional mushroom and contains many bioactive compounds such as inotodiol and betulin.
