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.

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.

This is the best mushroom-product available!

Thanks for your feedback!

A great product by a great company

Posted by iHerb Customer on Oct 25, 2009 | Verified Purchase

I have been using this product for about two years, and find it very beneficial. Due to our culture's "race for the cure" mentality, I must say do not expect this to "fix" something. Rather, use it as a long-term tonic to help sustain optimal immune system function. Also, New Chapter is a great company with strong environmental, social and business ethics. They have personal relationships with their growers, and are not simply buying cheap herbs on the international, anonymous bulk market. Our purchases also create the world we live in, so be it this product or another, I encourage you to buy from New Chapter.

Thanks for your feedback!

So far so good.

No one in my house has gotten sick yet and we have been taking this for a month now.... I'll buy this again, and post a review after flu season is over.

Thanks for your feedback!

Warts & Mushrooms

We were told that medicimal mushrooms would help get rid of warts. It's a slow process, but there is some progress.
