Host Defense is led by founder and mycologist Paul Stamets, whose visionary research about mushroom mycelium, the root-like structures of mushrooms found growing below ground, led to new healing formulations. The power of Host Defense comes from the discovery that the mycelium is the immune system of the mushroom.
Fungi Perfecti is a family-owned business founded in 1980 by Paul Stamets. They’re dedicated to cultivating high quality gourmet and medicinal mushrooms, and have been an important leader in developing new technologies / markets for the healing power of gourmet mushrooms.
Paul Stamets, D.Sc (Hon.), is the founder of Host Defense Mushrooms, and is a dedicated mycologist. He has pioneered the field of functional food mushroom cultivation. Two of his books, Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms and The Mushroom Cultivator are known as important guides in the mushroom industry. Paul states that "the path to the future is the path of the mycelium.”
