Mushrooms are the latest trending superfood and you’ve probably seen mushrooms in coffee, teas, elixirs, and even supplements!
In this episode, I’m joined by Jeff Chilton, an ethnomycology expert (the study of fungi). He founded Nammex, a company that introduced medicinal mushrooms to the U.S. nutritional supplement industry. He also co-authored the book “The Mushroom Cultivator.”
You’ll hear us discuss:
What medicinal mushrooms are and what’s the active ingredients in them
The importance of consuming organic mushrooms and how he started the first organic mushroom farm in China and the regulations that they must meet to ensure safety
The differences between popular mushrooms like reiki and chaga and other trending varieties
How mushrooms are used in supplements and how to know if you’re purchasing a quality, safe mushroom supplement
