Why you should look for health-friendly chaga this winter
A wild edible known as chaga is all the rage right now in the health-food industry, but why all the hype? Namely, modern science is beginning to prove what aboriginal cultures around the northern hemisphere have known for ages: that consuming this weird black mushroom can have a remarkable range of health benefits. I’m living proof of it—chaga tea is the main anti-inflammatory medicine I use to keep my degenerative arthritis in check. It’s also the most antioxidant rich food on the planet, complete with anti-viral and adaptogenic properties among its wide-ranging biological benefits.
