Chaga Mushrooms


We don't just harvest Canadian Chaga, we have been drinking ChagaTea every day for our
own health since 2006!


Chaga is a non-renewable wild resource, so why not buy your Dried Chaga from the people who harvest it and know how to harvest it responsibly and sustainably.

 We want to protect this important natural resource!

It was not until the summer of 2006, after returning home to New Brunswick, Canada that I was called to remember this amazing Chaga mushroom that AndrĂ© had told me about on those Islands back in 1999 again.

At the time, no one here in North America seemed to know anything about its medicinal properties or even that it existed, so I went on the internet of course, to find out what I could about this miracle mushroom. At that time, my search produced only one website that had any information about it at all, and that one and only website was based out of Russia. It is with humble gratitude that I thank the people at chagatrade.ru for the information you so freely shared with the world then and now! And unlike what everyone else has done since, I did not copy and paste your information onto my website as a marketing tool to fool people into thinking I knew something that I didn't.

After reviewing what they had to say at Chaga Trade about the medicinal properties of this mushroom, I started harvesting it for myself  to see if it really did, or would work for my high blood pressure and high sugar levels due to type-two diabetes.  What I can and will say is this-  my energy levels skyrocketed in the first week and after the first two months of drinking three glasses of Chaga tea every day, I no longer had high blood pressure and my sugar levels were under control; and have remained so, for over six years now with daily use.  (I don't miss having to prick my fingers 3 or 4 times a day either)

This is my experience with Chaga, and I make no other claims as to its medicinal uses, other than to say that it has dramatically improved the quality of my health and life.  I am not a doctor, nor a scientist and cannot comment on other health problems that I do not have.

Nor am I the Creator, nor the designer of this gift, but I am however one of Mother Natures little gardeners and do respect her laws. 

Think of Mother Nature with this in mind.....If we wound her a little bit, she will heal and give us more in time, but if we wound her too deeply and beyond her ability to heal, then she cannot give and there will be nothing for no one!

In 1999, while we were buying Chanterelle mushrooms for a larger mushroom company out of Richmond, B.C. I heard of Chaga from a Russian biology exchange student in the Queen Charlotte Islands, (located off the north coast of British Columbia, Canada). I'd been a professional mushroom harvester and field buying agent of wild gourmet mushrooms since 1997.  After finding a very rare fungus there, that he named Ling Zhi (a medicinal mushroom), he told me a very interesting story about another potent medicinal mushroom - Chaga.  He and his family harvested this mushroom he called Chaga in Russia and went on about the Chaga Trade with China.  As great as the story was, I soon forgot all about it. 

 

It is only for these reasons that I harvest Chaga:

to share the health benefits with others who need it as I do !! 

 

It did not take long, however, before my family and friends were noticing the difference in my health, and I began  harvesting Chaga for them, as well, through 2006 and 2007.

In 2007, we launched this website to sell fresh Fiddleheads and Dried Gourmet Mushrooms online.  Since the best time to harvest Chaga is off-season to the Fiddleheads and edible wild mushrooms, I added the Chaga to our website as well because of it's amazing health benefits to me, how could I not share this? This also prolongs our wild foods harvest season, which also helps to support my family and now others in our community through the winter months.

Since the summer of 2007 with the launch of my website ( the first in North America to offer Chaga in it's purest form) there are  literally hundreds of web pages and web sites selling Chaga in various forms from all parts of North America now. Yes the marketers have also found Chaga!

We only harvest and sell Chaga in its purest form. We do not add anything to our grind or powder. Nor do we make any kind of extract, and if we did it would be a single extract. A double extract simply means; add water and make more money! 

Here in Canada, our alcohol content in our Vodka is no higher than 45%  so the 55% water content will take care of the water soluble enzymes during the fermentation process. There is no need to do a second extract with water at all, as it serves no purpose other than to increase the volume and weaken the first extract.

That's my personal promise to you!

We make Chaga available to you in chunks, powder, loose tea grind (make your own tea bags)  or 1/4 cup Tea Bags, your choice!

However, we do not clean the Betulin-rich black outer part of the mushroom off as other people do, because recent analytical studies of the mushroom show that it is this part that holds the highest concentration of the anti-tumor rich betulinic acids.  

If you are interested in the complete analysis of the Chaga mushroom that I have, click on the link for the scientific pharmaceutical report.  This report is not copied or pasted from another website -- it is real scientific data from a pharmaceutical laboratory.  I received this report six years ago from the science officer at Maliseet First Nations Conservation Council. and is the only report that I trust as there was no monetary gain involved.

I have found a couple of more real good articals on Chaga that I want to share with you that I thought were really good. The excerpt below is from the first artical


In conclusion, all these results suggest that the water extract of Chaga mushroom is a very potent immune modulator that recovers the bone marrow system damaged by chemotherapy. It also suggests that the immunomodulatory activity of the water extract may be due to the potentiation of the host immune system through the regulation of cytokines in the cytokine network. Therefore, the Chaga mushroom water extract shows a great potential as a supplement or a major therapeutics in immunocompromised or immunosuppressed individuals whose bone marrow system is damaged.
