About This Brand

Host Defense

Host Defense emerged from the fusion of skill sets from two experts: Paul Stamets and C. Dusty Yao. Paul’s long time expertise in the classification and cultivation of mushrooms perfectly matched C. 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

Awesome Stuff

I recommend this to everyone, my husband and I take the pills and I use the drops for my kids-I just mix it in with orange juice in the morning for them. We have a kindergartener and we have avoided the flu and many bugs going around. This is one of the immune boosters in our routine but an important one.

One of my favorite medicinal mushroom companies out there. I was lucky enough o meet the founder, Paul Stamets at a party fundraiser he was throwing and he is doing incredible work for the bees and for pollution research. Highly recommend his products!

Paul Stamets...need I say more?

This immune helper doesn't include the usual medicinal mushrooms, but I'm willing to trust Paul Stamets to put together a great combination. Much better than a flu shot IMO.

Good but Not Convenient

Posted   by Gina
This is a great product if you have issues with pills. I thought it priced out better than the capsules per serving but counting out drops or measuring takes the convenience away, especially for travel. Tasting it isn't that great either. I prefer the capsules over the liquid for sure. I do feel since I've been incorporating these various "mushrooms" into my daily routine I get sick less often (I have three school aged kids who bring it all home).
