Chaga Mushrooms Caps

Proclaimed a super-food and offering many health benefits, chaga mushroom extract is becoming more popular today, even though it has been used widely for centuries.

Now, chaga mushroom extract can be found in powder and liquid form all over the internet, in health food stores, and even from experienced people who harvest it right from the tree

Chaga Mushroom Growth

The chaga mushroom can be found growing on birch trees, although it does grow on other trees such as elm and ironwood.

Its appearance is like a black growth that may be mistaken as rotted tree by the unknowing eye.

Peeling off the birch skin around the chaga is important because the chagra grows underneath the bark and the complete mushroom may not have erupted through the bark and be visible.

Once it is completely uncovered it is removed from the tree with a chisel, knife, or even a rock depending on how secure it is against the tree.

It comes off in one big mass, and a large enough mushroom (about the size of your forearm) can last a person well over a year. The size of a chaga mushroom varies widely and has been seen up to three feet long.

Once the mushroom is removed, the outer black part is removed, it is cut into chunks and then it is dried out.

Then the inside of the mushroom is ground into a powder and preserved. Storing it in a brown container will increase its shelf life; although, it does last a very long time once dried.
