Supporting Natural Immunity
Made with U.S. Grown Organic Mushrooms
Each mushroom species collected by Paul Stamets from the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest is sustainably harvested. The ecosystem remains intact and unharmed. We carefully culture the mycelium for the Host Defense products on the Fungi Perfecti Farm in a way that maintains the lowest PValue possible. This creates identical genetic matches to the mycelium found in their native habitats, ensuring the provenance and genetic vitality of each strain. Our chain-of-custody guarantees the efficacy and viability of the species in the Host Defense line: From the Forest, to our Farm, to You.
Host Defense® Cordyceps
Traditionally, Himalayan mountain peoples have used Cordyceps to enhance strenuous, high altitude activities. Recently, professional athletes and physical fitness enthusiasts have discovered that Cordyceps may have the cardio-enhancing effects of increased oxygen uptake, supporting higher endurance levels. People have also found that cordyceps supports healthy sexual functioning.*
