114. Everything You Never Knew About Mushrooms: Adaptogenic & Medicinal Benefits with Jeff Chilton

Think Yourself Healthy

On this episode, I'm interviewing medical mushroom pioneer Jeff Chilton! With over 40 years of experience in the medicinal (non-hallucinogenic) mushroom industry, Jeff is looking to spread his wealth of knowledge about our fungi friends and their incredible health benefits! In the late 60s after studying Ethno-mycology (the study of human-fungal interactions) at the University of Washinton Jeffbegan a career as a large-scale commercial mushroom grower. From there, with a lack of medicinal mushrooms and extracts available in the US market, he founded Nammex, the first certified organic mushroom extract and supplement company in the US. To this day Jeff continues to spread awareness of all the incredible health benefits mushrooms can have on the human body and to inform the public that most mushroom extracts on the market aren’t even real!

Fungal Nutrition with Jeff Chilton and Bill Chioffi

Foodie Pharmacology Podcast

Mushrooms can be magical, medicinal, and delicious! This week on the show, I speak with two experts on the cultivation of medicinal mushrooms for the nutritional supplement industry. We examine the qualities of mushrooms and discuss the differences between fruiting bodies (mushrooms) grown on logs and vegetative bodies (mycelia) grown on grains. The way your supplement ingredients are grown and processed is key to the final quality and health value of the product! We break down the scientific nuance into some simple steps for listeners to use when searching for real mushroom extracts on the marketplace. #Nammex #mushroom #healthfood #supplement

Ep. 81 - Jeff Chilton - Mushrooms: The Medicinal, Nutritive & Spiritual

The Universe Within Podcast

Hey everybody! Episode 81 of the show is out. In this episode, I spoke with Jeff Chilton. I had been wanting to bring on someone since this podcast’s inception to speak about all of the different uses of mushrooms, from the nutritive, medicinal, and spiritual uses. So when I learned about Jeff and he agreed to come on, I was very happy as he really is the perfect person to speak on mushroom’s behalf. He has been working with mushrooms for nearly fifty years. He owns a company supplying high-quality mushrooms to other companies and has lived, breathed, and studied mushrooms and all of their benefits. I was really excited as we spoke about ancient cultures, esoteric philosophies, religion, and how plants and mushrooms play a pivotal role in perhaps the essence of all of these. Jeff is a really good guy with a lot of wisdom and knowledge to share and I think you all will get a lot from this episode. On a technical note, the Zoom meeting for some reason only recorded Jeff’s video and not mine, so you’ll hear me asking questions but only see Jeff’s video. Better that way than the other way!

#88: Miracle Mushrooms, Mycelium, and Your Health | Jeff Chilton

A New Way of Living

In this episode of A New Way of Living, I interview Jeff Chilton about medicinal mushrooms, mycelium, and the new wave of psychedelics.  Jeff was raised in the Pacific Northwest, studied ethno-mycology at the University of Washington in the late sixties and started working on a commercial mushroom farm in Olympia, Washington in 1973. During the next 10 years he became the production manager, responsible for the cultivation of over 2 million pounds of agaricus mushrooms per year and was also involved in the research and development of shiitake, oyster and enoki mushrooms which resulted in the earliest US fresh shiitake sales in 1978. During this period Jeff co-authored the highly acclaimed book, The Mushroom Cultivator, which was published in 1983. In the 1980’s he operated a mushroom spawn business and in 1989 he started Nammex, a business that introduced medicinal mushrooms to the US nutritional supplement industry. He traveled extensively in China during the 1990’s, attending conferences and visiting research facilities and mushroom farms. In 1997 he organized the first organic mushroom production seminar in China. Jeff’s company, Nammex was the first to offer a complete line of Certified Organic mushroom extracts to the US nutritional supplement industry. Nammex extracts are used by many supplement companies and are noted for their high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds.
