Welcome to your ultimate guide to ALL THINGS mushrooms and mushroom supplementation! I sit down with Jeff Chilton during this interview, ethno-mycologist and passionate founder and president of Nammex, which happens to be the very first company to offer a complete line of Certified Organic Mushroom extracts to the United States Supplement Industry.
This is a super fun and educational episode about mushrooms, as we first talk about their growing cycle, and then how they can be used as nutritional powerhouses in our diets and at home. We talk about the popular and delicious mushrooms to use in our kitchen, including ways to optimally use them, wash them, and simply cook them.
Jeff then gracefully and truthfully opens the door to the "functional mushroom" world, where we get into some really interesting realities about the supplement industry. He candidly shares what he refers to as the "adulteration of these supplements," and I was a bit shocked to hear just how prevalent these sideways practices are! He gives us all the warnings and details on what to look for when looking for a quality mushroom/adaptogen supplement, goes over the testing methods, and more. We also chat about a couple of fun mushrooms like Reishi and Lion's Mane, where he gives us a nice breakdown of their primary uses and benefits.
Jeff is a true industry leader, educator and MASTER when it comes to mushrooms, and his affection for them is highly palpable. He's an absolute wealth of information and he stands by the "food as medicine" approach to wellness. Check out the resources below for what seems like an endless amount of education!
