A Message From The Founder
I feel passionate and triumphant when I think about Chaga! It was my father's battle with cancer that brought this amazing mushroom into my life!
I believe that our health starts and ends with us, and us alone. It is our responsibility to seek out and learn the information we need to optimize our health. I trust we will meet people on our path that can help guide us, however it is up to us to take control of our health as it is ours and ours alone.
Your health is all that matters. It gives you the ability to live and have a better quality of life. Never take it for granted.
With love, Lorena
Personal Fitness Trainer

Our Brewing Process
Slow Brewed With Attention To Detail
For maximum freshness and nutrition, we brew our blends in small batches to ensure potency, quality, and purity. We use living, alkaline, mineralized water to brew our blends. This is one large area where we are different then other brewing companies. This kind of water withdraws more nutrients from the ingredients being used, plus it is highly absorbable verses bottled or plain filtered water.
Our brews are made using 100% whole foods, medicinal mushrooms, adaptogenic and tonic herbs, and superfoods that are well known for their vast array of benefits. Each ingredient requires specific attention to be properly brewed for optimal flavor and integrity of benefits. In our current world of high processing, speed cooking, and rushed lifestyle, convenience tends to trump quality. This is where we are different and shine.
Each brew is flavoured and coloured by herbs verses sweeteners or artificial ingredients. Our blends are created to support a healthier lifestyle for you and your family. We created an optimal and detailed brewing process to attain the best flavor while retaining the health-supporting properties they are known for. After much research and development, we refined each formula to create delicious drinks for you to enjoy with ease and much-needed convenience.
Without revealing our trade secrets, we can share each blend is brewed at the lowest possible temperature to release just the right amount of flavour and nutirents without compromising the benefits of the delicate ingredients. Temperatures are adjusted at various stages of brewing, and individual ingredients are added at specific times to match their best-known preparation practices. Each blend is slow-brewed for a different amount of time, ranging from 4 hours and up to 12 hours. Once the brew has reached its unique state of perfection, it is bottled in glass jars to retain its taste, quality, purity and allowed several hours to cool before being ready to drink.
Our facility and methods to produce Chaga Muga Brews have been approved and follow food safety requirements and standards. This process ensures the safety of all our clients, stores, and production staff. Your health and safety is our primary commitment.
