Host Defense delivery method

Host Defense offers delivery method options to best match your lifestyle needs. Capsules work well for daily convenience. If you’re seeking rapid absorption by the digestive system, then Host Defense extracts may be the way to go.

capsules

Host Defense mushroom capsules are made with Certified Organic, non-GMO mushroom mycelium / fruitbodies, encased in a plant-based capsule made from pullulan—a non-GMO, naturally-fermented polysaccharide polymer. Pullulan is starch-free, gluten-free, and preservative-free, and helps protect mushroom material against oxidation.


Host Defense capsules and extracts

extracts

Host Defense mushroom liquid extracts are made with U.S.A. grown and processed Certified Organic mushrooms. Most other brands use only hot-water extraction, which leaves out many valuable constituents.

Host Defense extracts utilize Paul Stamets’ comprehensive Double and Triple Extraction Methods:

1. Hot Water

Certified organic fruitbodies of Reishi, Maitake, Turkey Tail, Lion’s Mane and Shiitake are hot-water extracted to pull out polysaccharides (e.g. beta-glucans, glycoproteins, and other high-molecular weight compounds).

2. Ethanol

Mycelium and fruitbodies are extracted with certified organic ethanol, which isolates antioxidants (e.g. terpenes, triterpenoids, inositols, ergosterols, sterols and myco-flavonoids).

3. Cold Water

Pure, filtered water is used to extract extracellular metabolites from the living mycelium within the temperature range at which the fungi’s native immune systems are most active.
