What do the ancient Greeks, Haida, and Chinese have in common?
Three mushrooms from the Ancients have been reborn and combined in a synergistic formulation: Host Defense® Throat Mist™.

Our Ancestors Speak. Shall we listen?
Agarikon (Formitopsis officinalis):
Hidden deep in the verdant, old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest, this elusive and still mysterious mushroom has been rediscovered for its host defense properties. Used by Europeans for more than 2,000 years, from the time of Dioscorides and before, and independently revered by the Haida First Peoples of British Columbia, recent studies have found this mushroom to have powerful immunoactive effects against airborne elements.*

Birch Polypore (Piptoporus betulinus): The Ice Man Cometh, and when he traveled into the Alps more than 5,000 years ago, he knew that this mushroom protected his life from the ravages of nature. Traditionally used for fighting parasites, this mushroom has yielded several natural protective compounds, including betulinic acids and other constituents unified to form an immunoactive matrix of nutrients.*

Red Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum): Borne from Chinese Acacia trees, this mushroom, an elegant display of grace and beauty, has long been admired and heralded by Asians for thousands of years as the Mushroom of Immortality.* Once only the privilege of Emperors, we bring this mushroom into companionship with two other fungal elders. The way of life is synergism of allies: In this vein, we combine the most potent of mushrooms to help support immune function and host defense.*

Why Organic Mushrooms?
Our bodies understand - and seek - organic nourishment, for organic foods deliver the ideal form of essential micronutrients that allow us to thrive. Our Earth understands - and celebrates - organic cultivation, which reduces the burden of the toxic “ides” - pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides. And our organic mushrooms understand and speak your language - the language of life itself.
