Dusty Yao’s years of making herbal extracts. Their shared passion for exploring the natural world, from thousands of hours of hiking through the old growth forest, and their combined ideas created the wellspring that gave birth to the Host Defense product lines that continue today. Paul Stamets, D.Sc., is a mycologist, hiker, naturalist, and pass

THESE ARE LIFE CHANGING

THESE ARE LIFE CHANGING! I have tried every other immune support method, but I would still get sick 5 times a winter. Since taking this last fall, I have had only 1 cold! Worth every penny!

My husband and I take these and we give our kids the liquid form. We’ve been able to avoid all the bouts of flu and whatnot when they’ve gone around, and we have a kindergartner who brings plenty of germs home. This will continue to be a part of our daily routine.

I take this mostly when feeling unwell. Since I take multiple products then, can't tell what impact this alone has. It is recommended by my nutritionist.

The power of shrooms. If you follow Paul Stamets, then you know this is the real deal. My boyfriend and I have been taking this for months now. We haven't gotten sick yet, while still being around sick people. Could be just a coincidence but after learning about the benefits of mushrooms, I'm beginning to think it isn't. Every winter I've gotten sick. Not this year.

Worth the hype

Posted   by Melissa from Fenton, Missouri

I typically get a cold a cold every week or so starting in late September. I have had exactly ONE cold this year, and it didn't turn into a respiratory thing! This is unheard of for me. My theory is that I'm getting lots of nutrition that u didn't used to get. While I do incorporate mushroom powders in my cooking, it would cost a fortune and be difficult to get such a wide array of mycelium through diet alone. . This is also the best price I've seen by far, having regularly compared this to Amazon and Sprouts. I've been disillusioned with Thrive's customer service lately, but the savings on this product alone make up for the cost of membership.

I've been taking these off and on for about a month (and always while traveling), and I have felt a difference in my ability to ward off colds, etc. I'm a believer!!
