Host Defense was founded by Paul Stamets, D.Sc., a leading mycologist, who has studied mushrooms for over forty years. Not only has he discovered several new species of mushrooms, but he’s also pioneered countless techniques in the field of edible and functional mushroom cultivation. Host Defense® supplements are certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, U.S.-grown functional foods made from specially processed mushroom fruit bodies and mushroom mycelium (the root structure of the mushroom). The whole mushroom contains a range of compounds that support many of our body’s functions.* Stamets’ extensive research recognizes that mushrooms provide essential nutrients supporting the cardiovascular, neurological and digestive systems, as well as lung, blood sugar, brain and even liver health.*
