CHAGA MUSHROOM - THE KING OF THE FOREST

ACADEMY OF LIONS NUTRITIONIST NATHALIE DRINKS HER MUSHROOMS

Chaga Tea has been around for centuries in Russia and the Baltics but in the last several years it has been breaking into the mainstream as one of many medicinal mushrooms that are being studied for some pretty interesting health benefits.
