Powered by Mushroom Mycelium™ - NO FILLERS!
A ‘filler’ is an additive, or an ingredient that either serves to add bulk or weight to the end product, but that has no discernible health benefit. There are no ‘fillers’ used in Host Defense products. Rather, both the mushroom mycelium and the fermented rice substrate in our supplements have been researched, tested, and shown to offer health-supporting benefits.*

Pleurotus ostreatus is probably the most common edible mushroom found on hardwoods. Growing on alder, cottonwood, poplar, oak, birch, beech, aspen and many other hardwoods, our aggressive strain is renowned for its productivity. Hardwood logs and stumps can be used for inoculation; after incubating the logs may be partially buried, horizontally-oriented, to conserve water during fruiting.
Please note: These plugs are packaged by weight, not individually counted. As a result, the total number of plugs per package is an approximation, and may be slightly more or less than the amount stated in the product description.
