Chaga Health mixes ancient wisdom with modern science

Chaga Health has its origins in the export of Estonian wild berries to Asian markets, until the founders arrived at the dramatic conclusion that instead of exporting raw materials they should utilise the potential of Estonian medicinal plants to their fullest. Adding some science to an old family recipe created the leading chaga-based elixir in the Nordics.

Chaga, inonotus obliquus, is a fungus that grows parasitically on birch and other trees and is considered to have medicinal qualities. The chaga-based elixir acts as a booster for the body’s immune system, thus making chaga the first fungi with a health claim. But Chaga Health’s founder Siim Kabrits believes that we’re still in the early stages of understanding the true health benefits of chaga. “Our motto is to rediscover the wisdom of our ancestors through modern science and technology. Chaga has been used as medicine for thousands of years in the Northern Hemisphere and though we do understand the health effects of chaga, we still have a lot to learn about the exact mechanism,” explains Kabrits.
