The mycelium and fermented substrate - also known as ‘mycelium biomass’ or ‘myceliated grain’ - is a unique ingredient that has been converted as mushroom mycelium consumes and ferments a food source, whereas a ‘filler’ is an inactive ingredient that serves to add weight or bulk to the main ingredient. But the substrate, once fermented, is actually immunologically active and complements the health-supporting benefits of the mycelium.*
Host Defense® Talks with the Expert – Jerry Angelini is Head of Science Education at Fungi Perfecti® and Host Defense®. We sat down with Jerry to discuss how beneficial mushroom mycelium and the fermented substrate used to grow it play a vital role in the Host Defense® product line.
From cognition and mood support to energy and stamina, each mushroom species used in Host Defense® Mushrooms™ supplements offers a unique range of potential health benefits. But one thing that each species has in common is the ability to offer immune support.
Paul Stamets sits down with After Skool to talk about why Host Defense® uses mycelium in all our mushroom supplements. At Host Defense®, we're dedicated to furthering research on mushrooms, mushroom mycelium, and finding new and innovative mycological ways to support human and planetary health.
