A must read if you are seriously considering buying chaga!
Presently if you look around you, in health food stores, there is a frenzy for local products and everyone wants to enjoy the wave.
And if you look closely, you will find cheap medicinal mushrooms. Be vigilant.
Many of these mushrooms come from Eastern Europe or Russia and they still have traces of the Chernobyl incident. And vendors will not tell you!
Mushrooms should be dried, uncooked. It is important to check to see at what temperature they were dried: no more than 55° Celcius.
They must be dried and stored in the dark to preserve their vitamins. Light causes dissipation of vitamins. It is for this reason that vitamins containers are opaque color.
Where were they stored? If they have white spots or smell bad, these are signs of mold: they have been in contact with moisture. Do not buy these mushrooms, no matter what the representative may say. Moisture is a destructive agent.
Ask where they came from. Mushrooms are like sponges: they absorb what is in their environment. Being too close to a city or power plant will not produce the best results.
keeping these purchasing tips in mind will ensure a great purchase.

- You seek an instant healing.
