Product Description

Mushrooms for Immune SupportHost Defense My Community Organic Mushrooms – Comprehensive Immune Support

Blend of 17 Medicinal Mushroom Species
Functional Food to Support the Body’s Immune System

Medicinal Mushrooms and Viruses

Medicinal mushrooms contain polysaccharides that can stimulate innate antiviral immunity.
Some of the most studied species are turkey tail, maitake, shiitake, reishi.

My Community is a comprehensive medicinal mushroom formula that provides a diverse range of constituents to help balance the immune system.

Supported by clinical research, studies show that edible mushrooms support the body’s immune system and encourage resistance to cellular assaults.

For thousands of years medicinal mushrooms have been a staple of Eastern medicine.

Developed by mycologist (fungi scientist) Paul Stamets, My Community contains 17 species of mushrooms. It provides a diverse range of myco-nutrients for supporting immunity.

Research shows that medicinal mushroom varieties work synergistically with each other. That means that they can offer added benefit over a single species of mushroom. Several of the species in My Community are Reishi, Turkey Tails and Lion’s Mane.

Chemically Speaking — Protective Compounds in My Community Medicinal Mushrooms

My Community contains many potent compounds including:

  • beta glucans – polysaccharide found in mushroom cell walls, recognized for immune modulation, tumor-retarding properties have been clinically studied.
  • ergosterol – biological precursor to vitamin D2, found in fungal cell membranes
  • glycoproteins – compounds important in cell to cell interactions including white blood cell recognition and connective tissue support
  • triterpenoids – compounds that form natural structural building blocks for steroids
  • natural antibiotics – compounds that can inhibit the growth of harmful microbes or cure infection
    (For example, mushrooms produce natural antibiotics that fight Candida albicans – yeast)
  • enzymes – hundreds used to break down plants

About Fungi Perfecti and Host Defense Medicinal Mushrooms

Fungi Perfecti was founded by Paul Stamets D.Sc. (Hon.). He is a leading mycologist and author of many books on mushroom cultivation and identification, including:

  • MycoMedicinals: An Informational Treatise on Mushrooms
  • Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms
  • Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World
  • The Mushroom Cultivator (co-author)

For over 30 years, Stamets has worked in the ancient Old Growth forests of the Pacific Northwest, studying its fungal genome. He has actually discovered four new species of mushrooms!

Paul Stamets and his wife developed Host Defense medicinal mushrooms which are purity assured, free of GMOs, pesticides and other contaminants, and sustainably cultivated. A portion of their sales proceeds goes to Fungi Perfecti’s research “to save rare strains of mushrooms that dwell within the old growth forests.”

Listen to Paul Stamets at TEDMED where he shares his story how he helped his mother beat cancer using mushrooms as an adjunct therapy:

Pet Experience

Recently, I accompanied a friend and her dog to a veterinary oncologist. The veterinarian discussed some promising research results on mushrooms and dogs with a particular aggressive cancer. She prescribed a mushroom supplement which included a blend of six mushroom species to complement regular chemotherapy treatments.
