Have you heard of Shiitake mushrooms, Oyster mushrooms? Chaga mushrooms belong to the same family of fungi and have been around for thousands of years. Native Americans and even Europeans consumed these mushrooms for a number of health benefits.

What makes Chaga mushrooms unique is that they grow on live trees such as the birch or poplar. The symbiotic relationship between the mushrooms and the live trees can be as long as 20 years. You can harvest these mushrooms multiple times during their lifetime. This is a medicinal mushroom. In fact, it is known as the king of medicinal mushrooms. Even the Chinese traditional medicines acknowledge the powerful healing properties of the Chaga mushroom.

The Chaga mushroom is a versatile herb. You can consume it directly off the tree or you can air-dry it and then use it as a coarse or fine powder. You can brew it as a cup of hot tea, and the powder can be added to soups or in stews, or in your smoothie for a healthy boost.

The Annanda Chaga mushrooms at the Green Living Show in 2016 Toronto showcased a number of the offerings, such as the Anandha Forest Essential Oil, Anandha Chaga mushroom shampoo bar, a number of certified organic teas, skin cream, and body lotions.

Owners of Anandha, Blairish with his wife Heather, hand pick the mushrooms and convert them into useful things with loving care. It all started when Blairish was unable to heal his peptic ulcer, which ultimately led to stress and depression. He was tired of using prescription drugs and discovered the healing power of the Chaga mushroom. Heather has healed her blood pressure and arthritis using these mushrooms. Both educate and help others on how to use these mushrooms to heal themselves.
