From Shiitake to Medicinal Mushrooms: The New Superfood – Episode 162: Jeff Chilton

Ann Louise Gittleman Interviews Jeff Chilton

Join the First Lady of Nutrition and Jeff Chilton, a leading expert in medicinal mushrooms, as they hit the ground running with a captivating discussion about the power of mushrooms as the ultimate superfood. They discuss why mushrooms are not just food, but a key to longevity, brimming with fiber and nutrients to nourish your microbiome and boost your immune system. Jeff shares his fondness for the flavorful and nutritious shiitake and delves into the brain-boosting lion’s mane mushroom, renowned for its cognitive benefits. The conversation also ventures into the realm of psychedelic mushrooms, exploring their profound impact on treating depression, addiction, and even some of life’s profound challenges, along with the importance of “set” and “setting” in their therapeutic use. Ann Louise and Jeff explore the fascinating world of mushrooms, from the calming reishi to Jeff’s favored five-mushroom blend and uncover why these fungi are the forgotten link in our modern diet. Jeff Chilton is the pioneering President of Nammex, the first company to introduce a full line of certified organic mushroom extracts to the U.S. health supplement market, and the co-author of “The Mushroom Cultivator: A Practical Guide to Growing Mushrooms at Home.”
