Entia Biosciences launches supplement supporting kidney health

PORTLAND, Ore. — Entia Biosciences on Monday announced the launch of Ergo4Health/Kidney, a new nutritional supplement intended for individuals who are concerned about kidney health. The product comes in easy-to-swallow 500 mg capsules.

Ergo4Health/Kidney provides an essential amino acid L-ergothioneine ("Ergo"). Ergo is an antioxidant found only in food and is not created by the body. Research has further shown that Ergo is found in abundance in cells exposed to the highest amounts of oxidative stress such as the kidney, brain, liver, etc., where it is postulated to be needed most, noted Marvin Hausman, chief science and technology officer for Entia Biosciences.

Hausman had a scientific poster accepted for presentation at the National Kidney Foundation Meeting held during April 2017 in Orlando. The presentation highlighted the effect of Ergo4Health/Kidney on important kidney function bio-markers such as: eGFR (estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate), Creatinine and BUN (blood urea nitrogen).
