Jeff Chilton is the founder of Nammex (http://nammex.com/) and Real Mushrooms (https://amzn.to/2GSC0ge), and he joins us in the very first episode of the Bio Alchemy podcast today to talk about his half-century of experience in the field of mushrooms as food and medicine. From discussing how he got his start in the industry, walking around trade shows in the 80’s trying to get people excited about mushrooms, a book he wrote over 30 years ago (https://amzn.to/2T2VWTr) that still sells over 5,000 copies a year, some of the unique properties of these incredible organisms and how they can effect our biology, all the way to how to avoid products that aren’t actually mushrooms, we cover just about everything you need to know when considering using mushrooms as a supplement, or to biohack yourself to better health.
Mushrooms are an incredible biohacking tool, and are something that many of my other future guests — including biohackers like Blake Bowman, Siim Land, and many others — credit as things that make up a part of their daily routines, or things they use to perform more optimally. To say they’re an ancient health and healing tool is an immense understatement if I could ever give one.
Today, medicinal mushrooms are used to boost our immune system, stave off illness, as nootropics to allow us to perform at our cognitive best, as well as being an epic additive to food, which is the way that almost all humans have experienced taking in mushrooms.
Of special interest in this episode is Jeff’s discussion on myceliated grain, how prevalent it is in the mushroom supplement industry, and the things you need to know when keeping an eye out for this primarily grain-based product which may be doing you more harm than good, especially if you’re sensitive to grain products.
