Mmm Mushrooms! The Nutritious Healing Food with Fungi Expert Jeff Chilton - Episode 22

Plantfull Life

Mmm Mushrooms! They're wondrous for both culinary and medicinal uses. Want more flavor? Cook with mushrooms! Want to replace meat? Use mushrooms! Want longevity? Eat mushrooms! In this episode, I discuss all of the ways that mushrooms are a nutritious healing food with Fungi Expert Jeff Chilton.  Mushrooms are a "forgotten food" and can also be used as medicine to boost our immune system. I’ve definitely bought into the medicinal mushroom hype—as in latte boosters and health elixirs—so I got the insider lowdown on what type of "mushrooms" are really used in those fancy “medicinal mushroom” supplements. Maybe you bought some mushroom latte mix at the health food store. Guess what? Sometimes these products don’t contain the type of pure mushroom as it claims on the label. We also talk about one of the most prized medicinal mushrooms: Reishi. We also discuss Lion’s Mane, Chaga, Cordyceps, and Turkey Tail among the top healing mushrooms used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Jeff highly recommends organic agaricus (button) and shiitake mushrooms, and we both agree that wood ear mushrooms are super tasty too! There are so many other species of culinary mushrooms--- portobello, chanterelles, morels, maitake, porcini, etc., but shiitake mushrooms are one that everybody should be eating because they have so many great benefits.  Does this make you hungry for shiitake mushroom tacos? You'll find a bunch of tasty recipes for mushroom tacos on the Plantfull Kitchen blog to pair with this podcast episode: https://bit.ly/3gtl3tI  I hope you enjoy my chat with Jeff as much as I did! He sure is a fun guy. You can find out more about mushrooms on his website: Real Mushrooms.

Mushrooms are one of the hottest wellness trends of 2021. From weight management to cognitive health, the mushrooms' health benefits are abundant. Today's podcast is dedicated to exploring the magic and the mystery of mushrooms with mushroom guru, Jeff Chilton. Jeff Chilton has been deeply steeped in mushrooms since 1973. In the late seventies, he was a founder of Mycomedia, which held 4 mushroom conferences in the Pacific Northwest. These educational conferences brought together educators and experts in mushroom identification, ethnomycology, and mushroom cultivation. During this period Jeff co-authored the highly acclaimed book, The Mushroom Cultivator. 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. Since 1989, Nammex has pioneered the development and manufacture of mushroom extracts for the health and wellness industry. Nammex specializes in mushroom products and is the premier supplier of organically certified mushroom extracts Podcast #97 will explore all the mushrooms' health benefits along with: How mushrooms played a role in our ancestor's brain size Scientific studies on how eating mushrooms could help preserve cognitive health Mushrooms and weight loss Funghi and mushrooms Mushrooms and glycemic index Varieties and harvesting of mushrooms Beta-glucans and immunity Lions Mane and neuron production Whole mushrooms vs extracts and supplements Mushrooms and UV light to produce vitamin D I hope today's podcast on mushrooms' health benefits inspires you to add more mushrooms to your diet.

The National Institutes of Health released a study that "revealed very high rates of clinically significant insomnia along with more stress, anxiety, and depression since the Covid-19 pandemic." All-natural CBD from hemp can enhance the serotonin receptors. Low serotonin levels are commonly associated with people who have depression and anxiety. Anxiety is a key factor behind insomnia. I hope my CBD can help you get a good night's sleep.
