Inonotus obliquus, the Chaga Mushroom, is a parasitic fungus which grows on the side of Birch trees and can be found in cold northern hemisphere regions around the world. Northern USA, Canada, Northern Europe, Korea and Russia even.
This mushrooms has been used medicinally in Russia, Poland and China for centuries as a treatment for cancer, gastritis, ulcers and tuberculosis.
Most ‘mushrooms’ we see and know of are the Fruit of the fungus body, whereas the actual body itself is the mycelium structure which grows on the host medium. With Chaga however this is not the case…the part of the Chaga fungus which is utilized is the mycelial body. The fungus develops on the side a tree and after years it falls off.
This herb can be consumed straight, but is more effective when brewed into a tea or made into a tincture.
I encourage you to read more about the magical medicinal qualities of this plant! I have heard some very profound research done with this plant in treating diseases which normally are quite debilitating.

Where to begin with Chaga. Over the last few weeks I have been getting off an SSRI that was prescribed to me several years ago. The withdrawals(that Dr.s tell you don;t exist) are terrible. I began taking this powder, 1G steeped in bowling water for 15 mins at the beginning of the process because I was worried about liver damage the SSRI may have caused. Within a day I felt much more energized. I began to wake up 1-2 hours earlier than usual and began to feel better overall. This mushroom is profound and you can feel its spiritual, healing powder almost immediately upon consuming.
Eternity’s Product is top notch. It dissolves well into hot water leaving only a bit behind(which can be drunk 🙂 The taste is very rich and earthy, similar to an Ethiopian coffee. This isn’t quite a coffee replacement however. I feel the energy it provides is more internal(meaning it helps to regulate your entire essence so that you feel fatigued less.) However, it is a great daily supplement for those who just want to feel good or have an ailment they need aid with. Look online to read more bout Chagas medical benefits, they are legion and Eternity’s Chaga is the best around 🙂

Oh my gooood. I don’t know where to begin with this one. It is probably one of the best things I’ve ever incorporated into my diet. I have been prescribed many antipsychotics and antidepressants, and none of them could ever come near the genuinely powerful improvement that I find chaga mushroom induces, as well as many other sacred fungi (e.g. shimeji, enoki, lion’s mane, maitake) and some of the Ayurvedic herbs (ashwagandha, aindri, mandukaparni, and celastrus).
Eternityinabox, if you are reading this, I beg you please to start growing and harvesting other medicinal fungi!!! The world needs them and I need them personally! 🙂 Please at some point start selling lion’s mane, ashwagandha, and maitake. I would buy lots and lots of it!!!
Also, sorry to hear about the kratom ban. I will miss that sacred plant! I have heard that picralima nitida is a herb from Ghana with alkaloids that have many of the same medical benefits found with kratom. I got some picralima nitida off of asklepios-seeds.de, i recommend you try them out for yourself.
I love you and your wonderful website!!
