Medicinal mushrooms are a fantastic tool for mitigating risk and cultivating health.
From Reishi to Tremella, Lion’s Mane, and beyond, the Western world is finally waking up to the magic and medicine of mushrooms. With that increasing popularity, more and more research is being conducted that confirms what ancient traditions have long known about the medicinal benefits of mushrooms.
Today I’m joined by mushroom expert Mason Taylor to guide us through what you need to know about getting started with medicinal mushrooms. Mason is the founder and CEO of SuperFeast. In this conversation, we talk about Taoist tonic herbalism, why it matters how your mushroom formulations are sourced, SuperFeast’s sustainable approach to cultivation, the various health benefits of different types of mushrooms, and more.
I’ve been using SuperFeast mushrooms in my coffee every morning for a couple of years now, and I would highly recommend them. With the wide-ranging benefits of carefully sourced mushrooms, I consider them a highly underutilized form of medicine from which almost everyone could benefit.
