What’s L Ergothioneine(ERG)?

L Ergothioneine(ERG) is a sulfur-containing amino acid found in the fruiting bodies and mycelia of some species of mushrooms. The highest concentrations of l-ergothioneine are found in mushrooms, particularly Shiitake mushrooms, Boletus edulis (porcini mushroom) and oyster mushrooms. It is also synthesized in Actinomycetales bacteria and non-yeast fungi. Mushrooms and other foods are rich in ergothioneine, but finding them may be difficult. A few species of mushroom contain up to 7 mg of ERG per gram of dry weight. These include Sparassis crispa, Tremella foliacea, Lepista, and Ramaria botrytis. You can purchase high-quality Ergothioneine powder extract from these mushrooms sources and synthesizing process.

L Ergothioneine is readily soluble in water, has excellent immunomodulating, anti-inflammatory properties and higher antioxidant activity than coenzyme Q10 and has been shown to protect plant cells from excessive oxidative stress. It also helps to eliminate toxins and supports cellular health. L-ergothioneine is a super-antioxidant that has achieved GRAS status from the Food and Drug Administration.
