This product is in a catagory all its own. I have been taking Chinese medicinal mushroom blends for years but Paul Stamets MyCommunity is of superior quality. I had lingering congestion from a case of the flu that just would not go away, apparent especially when I was tired, but in less than 48 hours after taking 4 caps of this product a day, all traces of it were completely gone, and this is after taking about 15 caps a day for a month of another hot water extracted mushroom blend product that had come highly recommended. I have also noticed a marked relief in the little aches and pains that I had come to consider normal for my body as my immune system gets freed up to go to work on all kinds of things. Paul Stamets is the number one expert on mushrooms in the world with another fascinating book out now called 'Mycelium Running'. He cares deeply about our planet, our local environment and our individual health and his whole life's work has revolved around mushrooms. I trust his products. He uses the mycelium in the product which are the tiny root filaments where a lot of the medicinal power is, not just the fruiting body of the mushroom as in most other products. His extraction process is superior and he puts no stearate flow agents into the product, as per the label, which is a major plus. I trust this product and have seen its efficiency in action, am very impressed and have recommended it to everyone I know.

My MD actually said, as a cancer survivor, I should take this product. She said there was a lot of good research behind this product. I'm putting my faith in this brand.

I've been taking these mushrooms for 7 years originally under the name of "New Chapter Host Defense" after I read a good review from Dr. Andrew Weil. I trust Paul Stamets to produce an excellent product (now under the label "Fungi Perfecti"). I didn't give this "5 stars" as several of the capsules were broken as if the coating was thin and fragile. I'm hoping the manufacturing company will read this and examine the capsules. I did not send them back since only a few were broken---but these are expensive. I also wanted to take them as I firmly believe these mushrooms help my immune sytem. I have a chronic disease that can comprimise my immune system and with these I am very healthy.

They do what the box says: they support your immune system. I was very non-scientific and non-rigid in my intake of these, and in retrospect would take them each day for a week, and then stop for the next two - three weeks, and then begin again. Sometimes they would bring good health, other times they would bring "bad health" -- but I'd like to elaborate on that. With bad health, I am referring to a few times when I felt "out of it" for the day or two after taking these. In my opinion this is an immune response -- imagine my immune system as a group of people watching an enemy slowly change my body, but this group of people are somewhat weakened, and also smart, and wait instead for the right energy to come along and help them make certain progress of ridding the opposing force. I imagine that these days where I felt out of sorts were my body doing some cleaning, with the help of the fungi power. I hope these help you. Meditation, whole foods, and doing good for all are the medicine I have been prescribed. These are good also. A little something "extra".

I bought this product after I got CMV infection in order to support my Immune system. Since I used several products I can not distinguish the specific effect of this product, but I am convinced it contributed to my healing. The ingredients are something everyone's wants in their home in case you start to feel bad. I used it together with Oregano oil Oreganol p73, which has a great healing effect.
