(OTCBB:ERGO) (ENTIA) announced today that it has successfully completed an acute oral toxicity study (LD50) with its proprietary ErgoD2™ whole-food formulation. ErgoD2™ is a 100% USDA organic formulation from mushrooms that are enhanced with the Company's patent pending UV light technology and contain naturally high concentrations L-Ergothioneine and Ergocalciferol (vitamin D2).
