It is restorative, and is high in antioxidants– effectively neutralizing the damage caused by free radicals, helping to slow skin’s aging process. Chaga helps to restore skin’s elasticity, and can potentially help to reduce the appearance of sunspots, while potentially providing small protection from the sun’s rays.
