New Chapter's Guiding Principles

  • To deliver the wisdom of nature thus relieving suffering and promoting optimal health.
  • To advance the organic mission, nourishing body and soul with the healing intelligence of pure whole foods and herbal supplements
  • To nurture and sustain Mother Earth, the source of natural healing.
  • To honor and reward personal growth, for enlightened teamwork depends on the vitality of every member of the New Chapter family.

Mycelium: the Earth's Living Internet

The enduring wisdom and force of the mushroom lies in its mycelium. Mycelia are the delicate life threads growing unseen in rainforest soil and wood, culturing organic matter and delivering probiotic nutrients to all trees and plants. Mycelia make up a living internet, connecting the ancient intelligence in the mushroom to all life on earth. Each New Chapter Activated Organic Mushrooms formula delivers proprietary strains of mycelium in their organic culturing media.

Your Ultimate Lifeshield
The foundation of this multi-mushroom formula is built on two key elements: the unsurpassed quality of the New Chapter Activated Organic Mushrooms and the thoughtful combination of complementing species.
Each of the premier mushroom species in this formula have been selected in an effort to combine key mushrooms that have been traditionally used and recognized for their protective benefits. While each species provides its own unique properties, the combination of 17 delivers your Ultimate Lifeshield.

New Chapter Activated Organic Mushrooms deliver revered traditional mushrooms in their organic mycelial form. New Chapter Activated Organic Mushrooms are the supreme expression of mushrooms' protective and holistic intelligence.

It All Starts with Certified P-Value

New Chapter Activated Organic Mushrooms are the finest traditional mushrooms grown anywhere in the world, and are commercially available mushrooms with a Certified P-Value. P-Value is a scientific term for the genetic integrity of the mushroom, assuring that the mushroom mycelium genetically replicates the original mushroom that gave it birth. Mushrooms not grown in such a rigorous potency-assured manner may be hundreds of generations distant from the purity of their genetic heritage, and thus may suffer genetic degeneration and a lack of vitality.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, take two capsules daily. Can be taken anytime, even on an empty stomach.

Other Ingredients

Capsule; Gelatin (Tilapia, Catfish) and organic myceliated brown rice.

Contains: Fish
Naturally gluten free.

Our Host Defense capsules with organic ingredients are non-GMO, free of pesticides and contain both the mycelium and the underlying probiotic medium; no colorings, binders or flavorings.

Warnings

As with any dietary or herbal supplement, you should advise your health care practitioner of the use of this product. For use with children or if you are nursing, pregnant or considering pregnancy, you should consult your health care practitioner prior to using this product.

Part of My Cancer Recovery Health Plan

Posted by Reviewer2463977 on Oct 23, 2007

Host Defense is a bit pricey but I believe effective to help me keep my metastatic melanoma cancer away. I take it to boost my immune system. iHerb has supplied me with fresh product in excellent condition for nearly 4 years.

Fighting Cancer

Posted by Reviewer2060826 on Jun 10, 2008

I am a cancer survivor, and I consider the Host Defense to be vital in helping my immune system to keep cancer cells at bay. And having had cancer, I don't want to take any supplements that may be in any way tainted, so I buy New Chapter products for their purity. I also take the New Chapter GingerForce, to help my body make the most of the medicinal mushrooms.
