Chaga contains 25 to 50 times more SOD than any other medicinal mushroom! And Melanin is a super antioxidant for protecting and repairing our DNA, whilst fighting radiation. A true king in the mushroom world ! This blend contains 1000mg of a powerful “freeze dried-extract”, meaning it is up to 8x more potent compared to most regular pulverised powdered Chaga’s from a lab in China.
