Host Defense’s strength lies on the breakthrough of mycelium, the immune system of mushroom. It was the legacy of mycologist Paul Stamet (author of six books, multiple TED talks and highly respected scientist) who made the first steps on the study of the power and potential of mushrooms. With the help of C. Dusty Yao’s knowledge and skill in preparing herbal extracts, they created Host Defense. Mycelium is the root-like makeup of mushroom that breeds below the soil. It aids to sustain humans’ immune system. Not only that, it also holds up the wellbeing and strength of its environment. Mushroom mycelium is a string that connects humans, plants and animals to their ecology. Mushrooms are a powerful and a functional food and Health Defense’s supplements made from mushrooms can help the body in its everyday functions. It enhances the immune system and it lessens stress and emotional and body fatigue. It also supports healthy digestion and absorption of nutrients. It’s also rich in polysaccharides, a type of complex carbohydrate that increases immune cells such as natural killer cells and macrophages in the body. They offer excellent Lion’s Mane, Turley Tail and Reishi muschroom products as well as amazing combination products such as MyCommunity® Capsules and Stamets 7® Capsules.
