Ode to the American Elm.

This once beautiful and majestic American Elm is slowly fading away. It presents with classic Dutch Elm disease. I would never wish a beautiful tree to die, but if I found you in the middle of the woods, you would most likely yield pounds of Morels for a few years as your bark slowly slips off of your branches. Why can’t I transport you into my private forest to fade away with dignity. Instead the town will cut you down and grind you up and a week later grind your stump up. What a shame.

Chaga Mushroom Facts. IM me to buy some!

Chaga (Inonotus Obliquus) is a mushroom that typically grows on birch trees in colder climates across the Northern Hemisphere. At first glance, the mushroom doesn’t look very appealing; actually, it doesn’t even look like a mushroom at all! Appearances can be deceiving, however, as this special mushroom packs a considerable punch when it comes to its health value.

What Is Chaga Mushroom?
Chaga has been consumed for centuries in the East, most typically as tea, where its health benefits are well established. More recently, chaga has been gaining popularity in the West, where its numerous health benefits are now being recognized by many health gurus. Technically, chaga is a highly-concentrated black mass of mycelium that protrudes from birch trees infected with parasitic — but non-toxic — fungus Inonotus Obliquus. The dark, hard and cracked exterior, which often appears like burnt charcoal, is called the sclerotium. The interior has a rusty yellow-brown color.

What Are the Benefits of Chaga Mushrooms?
The health benefits of Chaga are numerous, many of which can be attributed to its immune-boosting ingredients and antioxidants.[1] Let’s go through each of the top seven health benefits:

1. Supports Immune System
Chaga has an abundance of Beta-D-Glucans which help balance the response of the body’s immune system. This means that chaga helps boost the immune system when necessary, but slows it down when it’s overactive. This makes chaga a natural Biological Response Modifier (BRM). Chaga activates immune cells responsible for combating cancer initiation.[2] Research is still ongoing, as more studies are needed to determine chaga’s full role in cancer. However, chaga has proven effective in supporting standard cancer approaches, such as chemotherapy, by compensating for the program’s negative side effects. While chaga will not ease cancer progression, evidence suggests there may be vital compounds in the mushroom that warrant further investigation into its role.

2. Soothing Properties
Chaga supports the integrity of blood vessels and provides soothing properties in times of irritation. This can be helpful for those suffering from pain, neuropathy, and even diabetes.[3]

3. Ulcers and Gastritis
Due to its immune-boosting properties, chaga has long been used to support gastrointestinal health in Eastern culture. Most ulcers are caused by bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori, so a well-functioning immune system can fight off this pathogen. Ulcers may be soothed by the use of chaga, depending on the severity and the patient.

4. Normalize Blood Pressure and Cholesterol Levels
The betulinic acid found in chaga is able to break down LDL cholesterol — bad cholesterol — in the bloodstream.[4]

5. Antimicrobial Activity
The chemical characterization and biological activity of extracts of Chaga mushroom were examined and showed high antioxidant and antimicrobial activity.[5]

6. DNA Damage Protection
The DNA protection chaga mushrooms may provide is impressive. Cells pretreated with a chaga mushroom extract displayed less damage than cells that did not receive the extract.[6]

7. Antiviral Properties of Chaga Mushroom
Chaga mushroom showed protective support against harsh skin blemishes.[7, 8]

Chaga Mushroom Nutritional Breakdown
So what are the ingredients behind chaga that provide all these health benefits? Let’s go through the 6 key ingredients that make chaga so healthy.

1. Polysaccharides
Chaga contains structural polysaccharides within its chitin walls, which provide energy, cardiovascular health, intestinal and liver health, and promote healthy blood sugar levels. It’s also said to improve one’s mood.

2. Beta-D-Glucans
Beta-D-Glucans are known for their ability to modulate the immune system. Beta-D-Glucans also help with normalizing cholesterol levels and blood sugar.

3. Phytosterols
Of the phytosterols present in chaga, 45 percent is Lanosterol, 25 percent is Inotodiols and the remaining 30 percent consists of Ergosterol, Fecosterol, and several others. In vivo and in vitro testing shows a direct effect of both Lanosterol and Inotodiols on cancer cells, with lanosterol imparting a positive effect on viral compounds.[9]

4. Betulin and Betulinic Acid (Triterpenes)
Betulin and betulinic acid are powerful therapeutic agents that are currently being researched for their effects on supporting healthy cholesterol levels. In addition to their favorable benefits for maintaining a healthy cholesterol profile, betulin and betulinic acid are also being studied in relation to cancer and viruses.[10]

5. Antioxidants
Chaga sclerotium contains massive amounts of the natural black pigment known as melanin, which has high antioxidant levels due to the amount of polyphenols it contains. In fact, chaga has the highest ORAC score (the measure of antioxidant potency) of any superfood.

6. SODs
SODs are another important antioxidant present in chaga. SOD refers to a group of enzymes called Super Oxide Dismutase. These enzymes play an important role in protecting our body against the destructive effects of uncontrolled oxidation and free radicals. SOD potency is measured by the S-ORAC score.[11]

Chaga Mushroom vs. Superfoods
When it comes to health benefits, chaga performs very well when compared with several popular superfoods.

Quinoa vs. Chaga
Quinoa provides a great source of flavonoids, vitamins, and antioxidants. The high quantity of quercetin that it contains can help cardiac and respiratory health, in addition to protecting cells from free radical damage. Chaga contains a much higher level of antioxidants that provide the same benefits within the bloodstream.

Goji Berries vs. Chaga
Similar to chaga, goji berries contain high amounts of polysaccharides. Although unlike chaga, the main polysaccharide in goji berries is pectin. In contrast, chaga’s source of polysaccharides comes from chitin, a structural polysaccharide that is very beneficial for human consumption and much harder to source. The typical modern diet includes plenty of pectin and little to no chitin.

Avocado vs. Chaga
Avocado contains many beneficial nutrients such as folate and vitamin D. The combination of these nutrients plus lipids promotes lower cholesterol and heart health. The Beta-D-Glucans found within chaga also improve cholesterol levels by preventing cholesterol from being absorbed into the bloodstream during the digestion process.

How to Make Chaga Tea
The most popular way to consume chaga is by drinking a delicious cup of chaga tea. Below is my favorite simple chaga tea recipe for you to try at home.

I have Chunked the whole chaga into a 4 oz bag.
Place the chunks into a crock pot or pot of hot water
Turn crockpot on high for first hour then turn down to low to steep it for 5 hours fir a true medicinal brew.
For a lighter brew, Leave the chaga and hot water steeping for at least 5 minutes, but the longer (slow brew about 6 hours the better to extract more of the bioactive ingredients.)
Remove the chaga chunks from the crockpot or pot pour into cup and add maple syrup or honey to taste.
Strain out the used Chaga out of the crockpot or pot and save it. Freeze it to reuse for your next batch.

This is Otto and Ditto Wisconsin’s Truffle Dogs in training project. This breed is called Lagotto Romagnolo. Nicknamed Laggatos.

The Lagotto Romagnolo [laˈɡɔtto romaɲˈɲɔːlo] (plural Lagotti) is a breed of dog that comes from the Romagna sub-region of Italy. The name derives from Romagnol can lagòt, meaning "water dog". Its traditional function is a gundog, specifically a water retriever; however, it is often used to hunt for truffles.

Fragrant Perigord winter black truffles received from the Truffle Lady were delicious!
As a "local truffle lover," I cannot recommend Milwaukee Truffle Importers strongly enough! Their product is always fresh, fragrant, and delicious. I recently hosted a holiday party, and their product featured in 3 of the appetizers, and were a hit! I sautéed black truffles in butter, for just 20 seconds or so, enough to crisp them up and bring out their flavor. Then I put them on crostini, and topped them with crème fraîche, parmesan, butter, and seasoning. The other crostini was topped with ricotta and truffle honey. Both were a hit (although, the first one was the real show-stopper - fresh truffles? amazing!!). The other appetizer is not pictured, but I cut the top off of a wheel of brie, scooped out a bit of cheese, and put in black truffles, EVOO, and seasoning, then baked. I served this with apple slices and little commercial toasts. And inviting my guests to sneak over to the fridge and smell the truffles was more fun than I care to admit. I highly recommend this product!
Hello, is your truffle oil made from real truffles?
