Functional Mushrooms with Jeff Chilton (Part 1)
Jeff Chilton studied Ethno-mycology at the University of Washington in the late sixties and in 1973 began a 10-year career as a large-scale commercial mushroom grower. Jeff is the co-author of The Mushroom Cultivator, published in 1983. In 1989 Jeff established Nammex, the first company to supply medicinal mushroom extracts to the Nutritional Supplement industry. In 1997 he organized the first organic certification workshop for mushroom production in China.
He is a founding member of the World Society for Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products in 1994 and a Member of the International Society for Mushroom Science. Nammex extracts are used by many supplement and food companies and are noted for their high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds.
Today he joins the show to share the magical benefits of mushrooms, including what to look out for when you’re grocery shopping and how they can increase your health.
This was a wonderfully interesting topic, so I have decided to break this episode into two. You can look forward to that next week.
Until then! x
