Aether Chaga Tincture
Chaga is not actually a mushroom, but a parasitic fungus that grows on birch trees throughout the northern hemisphere. The conk (which has the appearance of burnt charcoal) grows like a big, black mass on the trunk of trees such as birch, alder, and beech. However, only the fruiting bodies growing on birch are considered suitable for medicinal purposes.
Chaga has been used in Siberian and Baltic medicine for centuries, for tuberculosis, diabetes, stomach ulcers, gastritis, intestinal worms and polyps; as a cancer preventative and anti-tumour agent; to modulate the immune system and reduce inflammation; and to protect both the liver and the heart.
Recently, scientific investigations have supported traditional use with evidence of its ability to exert a range of therapeutic effects – from antioxidant support, to immune and inflammatory modulation, to anti-tumour actions.

Chaga is widely considered a safe herb, with no expected side effects from high doses or long-term use. However, there’s not enough information about the safety of taking it when pregnant or breastfeeding.
People on immuno-suppressive or blood-thinning medications should avoid using it, as it could weaken or negate the effects of the medication.
If you’re taking anti-diabetic or blood-thinning medications, it’s best to avoid chaga due to potential antagonistic reactions.
It may also lower blood sugar levels. Combining it with diabetes medicine may cause blood glucose levels to fall dangerously low.
