The Next Vitamin
L-ergothioneine is an amino acid and antioxidant found throughout the body that we can only obtain through food, with mushrooms and fungi being the highest source.
Studies suggest that as we age, L-ergothioneine levels in the body decrease and supplementing with ergothioneine could help mitigate age related ailments†.
The ERGO+ Ergothioneine Supplement
Real Mushrooms’ ERGO+ supplement contains 5mg of L-ergothioneine per capsule, which is derived from yeast and paired with both Oyster and Shiitake mushroom extracts, which naturally produce ergothioneine. In addition to being cornucopias of this important amino acid, both of these mushroom varieties offer their own wealth of health benefits.
Benefits of Oyster Mushrooms
Oyster mushrooms have long been prized for their delicate flavor and meaty texture that can make for an excellent addition to hearty dishes like soups and stews. For millennia they’ve also been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine because of their multitude of health benefits.
These health benefits are derived from the mushroom’s range of immune-supporting phytonutrients , as well as its abundance of antioxidants that can help fight free radicals in the body.
Oyster mushrooms deliver minerals such as potassium and copper, as well as vitamins like riboflavin, niacin, and folates, in addition to bioactive secondary metabolites including phenolic compounds, sterols, and triterpenes.
This translates to Oyster mushrooms having the potential to benefit cardiovascular health, blood sugar balance, and cholesterol maintenance.
Benefits of Shiitake Mushrooms
Like Oyster mushrooms, Shiitake mushrooms are packed with fiber, vitamins, and minerals and have been used for centuries to achieve and maintain optimum health. Shiitake mushrooms also offer polysaccharides , terpenoids, sterols, and lipids, which can have immune-boosting and cholesterol-maintenance effects.
By incorporating Shiitake into your diet in either whole food or supplement form, you’re reaping the benefits of an age-old, potent medicinal mushroom.
