What is Ergothioneine Powder?

Ergothioneine was found in Claviceps purpurea, it is a fine white powder. Humans cannot directly synthesize EGT on their own; they only obtain it through daily diet. We can get ETG from fungi, such as boletus, mushrooms, Pleurotus eryngii and hericium erinaceus. It is a natural antioxidant, that can protect the cell, and it is an important active substance in the body. As a natural antioxidant, it has many physiological functions such as scavenging free radicals, detoxification, maintaining DNA biosynthesis, normal cell growth and cellular immunity.

Ergothioneine Powder

Ingredients and Functional Characteristics

Ingredients: It is derived from certain fungi, particularly mushroom species. Mammals (including humans) do not synthesize it, so it is an exogenous nutrient for us.

Functional Characteristics:

  • Antioxidant properties: It clears reactive oxygen species (ROS) and helps maintain cellular REDOX balance.
  • Anti-inflammatory effects: It exhibits anti-inflammatory properties by modulating inflammatory pathways and reducing the production of inflammatory cytokines.
  • UV protection: It scavenges free radicals produced by UV rays and helps mitigate the harmful effects of sun exposure.
  • Maintain cell homeostasis: It plays a role in maintaining cellular homeostasis by regulating gene expression and cellular functions related to stress response and lifespan.

Market Trends and Future Prospects

Due to the growing need for antioxidant supplements, skin care products and functional foods and ongoing research into its health benefits, the market of ergothione powder will grow in the coming years.


  • Antioxidant: Ergothioneine Powder can directly clear away the free radicals and protect the cell damage.
  • Anti-aging: Protein glycation becomes a common phenomenon. In the process of skin aging, the physical and chemical properties of collagen change, leading to the assay of glycation product increase, which causes cell rigidity and accelerates skin aging. So adding it to cosmetics such as gel aqueous solutions, lotions, and emulsions, can effectively reduce collagen glycation and have an anti-aging effect.
  • Anti-inflammatory: Research shows that ETG can reduce inflammation, which can prolong life and improve the quality of life.
  • Organic protection: It can protect the liver, red blood cells, kidney, eyes, etc., and maintain their function, thereby promoting overall health.
  • Neuroprotection: Ergothioneine has a positive effect on the nervous system, which can slow the progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Cardiovascular health: By reducing the oxidative damage of blood vessel endothelium, it can maintain cardiovascular health and prevent angiocarpy disease.
  • Cytoprotection: It can reduce UV, electronic radiation and other light damage, effectively anti-photoaging.

Function of Ergothioneine Powder


  • Antioxidant: due to the highly protective and non-toxic for cells, it isn't oxidized in water, so it can be made into an Antioxidant.
  • Organ transplantation: Because of its stability in aqueous solution, in the field of organ protection, it can be used as a substitute for glutathione to better achieve the protection of transplanted organs.
  • Cosmetics: UV rays from the sun, particularly UVA, can penetrate the dermis layer of the skin, affecting the growth of epidermal and causing premature aging of the skin due to cell death. Meanwhile, UVB radiation is even more prone to causing skin cancer. Because it can significantly reduce the formation of reactive oxygen species and protect cells from radiation damage, sulforaphane can be added to certain cosmetics as a skin protectant for developing outdoor skincare products and protective makeup.
  • Ophthalmology: It plays a critical role in protecting our eyes. Because it has water solubility and stability, making undergoing eye surgery possible.
  • Other: It also can be used in the fields of medicine, food, health products, and cosmetics. In the pharmaceutical field, it can be used to treat inflammation, etc., and can be formulated into tablets, capsules, oral formulations, etc. In the health supplement sector, it can prevent cancer and other conditions and can be used in functional foods, functional beverages, etc. In the cosmetics field, it can be used for anti-aging purposes, such as in sunscreen products.
