“I just want to ask people to have an open mind. Give mushrooms a chance! They're part of everything we do on this planet.”
— Tero Isokauppila

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Welcome to today’s show, where we’re going to talk about magic mushrooms.

Not those kind of magic mushrooms.

But still, pretty magical.

That’s because today, we’re joined by a 13th generation mushroom farmer turned entrepreneur and biohacker from Finland.

…I couldn’t make this stuff up if I wanted to.

Through his company, Four Sigmatic Foods – Click for a 15% off discount, today’s guest is working hard to bring the ancient wisdom of mushrooms and their nutritional and medicinal benefits back into the modern era. There are a ton of health benefits which we’re going to learn about in the coming hour, but beyond just that, for every product you buy, they donate a portion of medicinal mushrooms to a cancer patient in need. Pretty cool, if you ask me.

Since meeting him at Summit at Sea, I’ve been enjoying a ton of Four Sigmatic’s products – click for a 15% off discount!, and I have to say, I think there is really something to what they’re doing, and I’m really enjoying exploring the different types of magical potions they offer.

Favorite Quotes from Tero Isokauppila:

“We have a farm [in Nokia, Finland]. We don't exactly know actually how long we've had it. But at least we're the 13th generation.”
“A lot of people still think that mushrooms are some kind of a sub-group of plants… but they're drastically different… They're a kingdom.”
“We share almost half the same DNA as mushrooms, so we're very prone to mushroom illnesses.”
“Wherever you are right now… anywhere… under the ground, there are mushrooms.”
“Wherever you are in life, your needs might be different… What worked for me when I was 20 might not work for me when I'm 30 or 40.”
“I'm a lot on the airplane – which I call the ‘fart tube.'”
