Read more

Tero Isokauppila is the mushroom guy. The founder of Four Sigmatic, he grew up foraging for mushrooms and other wild fruits and vegetables on the farm that’s been in his family since the 1600s. It’s his mission to bring the ancient wisdom he’s gathered over the years to the modern age in accessible, enjoyable ways, and he’s doing just that with life-enhancing products ranging from plant-based proteins to mushroom coffees.

 We’re both busy guys, but we finally found a time to sit down and chat about Tero’s unconventional upbringing, the Four Sigmatic backstory, and a variety of applications for different mushrooms in the fitness and nutrition space. Tero is a remarkable storyteller and you can just picture him as a body running free on a farm as he tells the story of how he learned the value of natural medicine and found a way to share it with the global community. This episode is packed with fun facts and answers to questions both longstanding and relevant to current events. Check it out!
