Bad breath and offensive body odors are more than a nuisance. They can signal the presence of toxic substances in the body with potentially harmful effects. Champex is a detoxifying and odor-reducing extract of champignon mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus). By targeting odors where they originate, this extract has been shown to:

  • Inhibit the chemicals that causes bad breath*
  • Reduce body odors by up to 60%*                 
  • Decrease levels of several toxic chemicals in the intestines and blood*
  • Supports the health of the kidneys*[1]
  • Increases NK (Natural Killer) cell activation





    Champex suppresses odor compounds in the breath via methanethiol and allylthiol reactions with the phenols of the mushroom.*[2] It also improves intestinal flora (increasing levels of Bifidobacteria and decreasing quantities of putrefactive bacteria).*[3],[4] Finally, Champex neutralizes or captures the toxic and odor-causing substances: ammonia, indole, mercaptan, hydrogen sulfide and amine from the intestines and the blood.*[5],[6]


    Champex is derived from champignon mushrooms. This genus includes white button mushrooms, cremini and portabellos, which are widely consumed as food. Oral toxicity and reverse mutation research has found it safe, and human clinical studies have found no side effects.[7]
