Medicinal Mushroom Supplements

Major Products

Fungi Perfecti is proud to offer customers the finest mushroom products available today. Founder Paul Stamets, author of the definitive text Growing Gourmet & Medicinal Mushrooms, has pioneered the cultivation of many unique strains of fungi. Each mushroom species collected by Paul from the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest is sustainably harvested. The ecosystem remains intact and unharmed. Fungi Perfecti carefully cultures the mycelium for the Host Defense® products on the Fungi Perfecti Farm in a way that maintains the lowest P Value™ possible. This creates identical genetic matches to the mycelium found in their native habitats, ensuring the provenance and genetic vitality of each strain.

All Host Defense® products are Certified Organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture. They are 100% made in the USA, cultivated under strictly controlled laboratory conditions at Fungi Perfecti’s facility in Washington State, supervised by Paul Stamets and his skilled staff. The company has a verifiable and transparent chain-of-custody. By purchasing from Fungi Perfecti, you can be assured that you are getting medicinal mushroom products of the highest quality.

From the Forest, to our Farm, to You™.

What’s New?

Announcing MyCommunity™ Extract available for resale! Fungi Perfecti is pleased to offer its MyCommunity™ Extract at wholesale pricing! Recently renamed, MyCommunity™ is the 17-species Host Defense® formula originally created by Paul Stamets— the most comprehensive formula for Supporting Natural Immunity™. Fungi Perfecti’s extracts are patent-pending, and the subject of U.S. government research. Available mid-October 2010.

Paul Stamets and Team present the LifeBox™! The Life Box™ suite of products builds upon the synergy of fungi and plants by infusing spores and seeds together inside packaging materials that can be planted. The first version uses trees and is aptly called the Tree Life Box™. The Tree Life Box™ is made of recycled paper fiber in which a wide variety of tree seeds, up to 100, dusted with mycorrhizal fungal spores have been inserted. The mycorrhizal fungi protect and nurture the young seedlings. For millions of years, plants and beneficial fungi have joined together in a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship.
