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.*

"David Marshall has written and illustrated a very creative and educational book, based on the science of Mycologist Paul Stamets, for young and old alike. From Bears and Trees to Mushrooms and Bees tells an important story about a serious issue facing mankind. I, at my old age, learned from this story. Edutainment is the way to teach young and old alike. Educate them and entertain them at the same time and you have a winning combination."
