Mushrooms are a functional food. Host Defense mushroom supplements can be used every day to help: Augment the body’s immune system* Support stress and fatigue reduction* Provide support for daily environmental assaults* Deliver enzymes to support digestion and absorption of nutrients* Provide polysaccharides to increase the activity & impact of natural killer cells and macrophages*
Host Defense locally from WA state is built on Paul Stamets’ visionary research into the power and potential of mushrooms, especially mushroom mycelium, the root-like structures found growing below ground. The power of Host Defense comes from the discovery that the mycelium is the immune system of the mushroom.
Just as mycelium helps to support the immune system of humans, it also supports the health and immunity of the natural habitats where it grows. Mushroom mycelium is a cellular bridge connecting bees, trees, bears, plants and humans to the ecosystems in which they live. Our work is to build a healthier world with the power of mushrooms.
