Jeff Chilton: Magical Medicinal Mushrooms
also available on
I've always appreciated fungi, and today's episode is packed with powerful information from a truly fun-gi!
Jeff is an expert mycologist. Our conversation traversed all things from medicinal mushroom properties, culinary mushrooms, mushroom cultivation, as well as how sketchy the mushroom supplement industry is.
I learned a ton. One big take away for me was the fact that most mushroom powders today are actually mostly GRAIN due to the fact that the mycelium is grown on grain and then the mycelium and grain combined is powdered and processed.
Other highlights include...
Jeff's journey into the field of mycology
The immune stimulating properties that ALL mushrooms have
Some special compounds found in special varieties of mushrooms
Why mushrooms grown in China are NOT contaminated
The importance of reading the fine print on mushroom supplements
Some delicious and nutritious culinary mushrooms
