Meet the magic mushroom that’s the new health miracle worker.

 

In today’s fast-paced, overly-stimulated environment, people are looking for ways to prevent illness and give themselves the best shot at living a healthy life. So, the next time you’re looking for a beverage steeped in antioxidants, think of chugging chaga. That’s the name of the magic mushroom being lauded for its medicinal properties to fight off viruses, promote immune balancing, and even fend off certain cancers. With endless wellness information and superfood products at our fingertips, we have greater ownership over our health and well-being than ever before. “Let food be thy medicine and medicine,” indeed. We are already seeing chaga turn up in elixirs at cafes and in donuts at California’s trendy Moon Juice. Our prediction: This adaptogen will be the new "magic bullet" in food and drink as our fixation with gluten-free and cold-pressed fades.
