Host Defense comprises a line of Certified Organic mushroom supplements produced in Washington state by Fungi Perfecti. Founded in 1980 by dedicated mycologist and award winning author Paul Stamets, this family owned company specializes in harnessing the power of functional food mushrooms in support of the health of people and the planet. Paul’s passion for the last 30 years has been to preserve, protect, and clone many ancestral strains of mushrooms found in ancient Old Growth forests of the Pacific Northwest. Only tiny mushroom samples are taken from the forest, leaving the habitat and original mushroom intact.
All mushrooms are grown under the highest quality conditions under Washington State Certified Organic guidelines and are harvested when active constituents are at their highest volume for maximum activity and efficacy. Flash freezing ensures the capture of the full spectrum of components at peak performance. With the knowledge that environmental and human health are directly interrelated, all products are sustainably cultivated and backed by scientific research. All products are Non-GMO Project Verified and Bee Friendly™, supporting bee recovery research.
