Why ergothioneine?

Ergothioneine is found in different food sources and in high concentrations in certain mushrooms (your body can’t make it). A new proprietary fermentation method has made it possible to provide supplementation of this nutrient. Studies have shown this amino acid has a highly specific mechanism to transport ergothioneine into cells and it is thought to play a crucial role in supporting long-term health. Our innovative formula helps maintain healthy ergothioneine levels to help ensure your body gets enough of this cell-protecting amino acid.
