Learn about the preventative health benefits of mushrooms! My guest for this episode is Jeff Chilton, president of NAMMEX and a mycologist (an expert in fungi).
We chat about how mushrooms help your activate immune receptors, and the top medicinal mushrooms from traditional Chinese medicine. Learn about the nutritional profile of mushrooms, how to cook them so they aren’t slimy, and how to harness the healing power of mushrooms like Reishi, turkey tail and others.
Jeff also talks about mushroom-hunting and a little bit about magic mushrooms and the new research on the benefits of microdosing psychedelics.
