… you’ll learn how your cells, mitochondria, immune system, sleep patterns, inflammation, nerve growth pattern, and energy levels all benefit from mushrooms. These fungi are full of compounds and nutrients that your body will love. There’s a whole lot of science behind this now.
In this special podcast edition, you’ll hear how two mushroom experts are studying and harnessing the amazing powers of mushrooms for the deepest parts of human biology and the natural environment.
Paul Stamets, is a speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur. He’s considered an intellectual and industry leader in habitat, medicinal use and production of fungi, and he considers himself a “mycological warrior.” He’s spent over four decades in the Pacific Northwest studying and researching the world of mushrooms. Listening to him describe, decode and illuminate the workings of the mushroom world is an enthralling experience, indeed.
He says we’re intertwined with mushrooms at a cellular level. He believes that habitats have immune systems—just like people—and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement. And from neurogenesis to our microbiome to our mitochondria, fungi are linked to us. He’s also making some amazing discoveries having to do with bears, bees, butterflies and biodefense.

Julian Mitchell, —co-founder and CEO of the Australian-based company Life Cykel—and his team work with mushrooms as innovative food sources and medicinals in Australia. “Mushrooms and mushroom-based foods are going to play a huge role in the future of food,” Julian explains. “They grow quickly requiring very little resources in terms of water, power, and land. They have an amazing nutritional profile, and of course, they are 100% natural.” … “Mushrooms are almost an uncharted continent, with infinite applications not just in food but in biotechnology.”
For day-to-day use, you’ll want to go with cooked, not raw, mushrooms. For those of you who aren’t fans of eating mushrooms, there’s an option for you, too: “Having it as a tincture makes it very easy to add to a coffee, add to a tea, add to a smoothie,” Julian says. “It’s quite tasteless and at the same time micro-dosing it in small amounts straight into your mouth is a great way to have it as well and absorb it straight into your blood system.”
