Dr. Hammerstedt is joined today by Jeff Chilton to discuss the health benefits of mushrooms. Jeff talks about how mushrooms are low in calories, high in fiber, provide no starch, and are low in fats. He thinks mushrooms have been overlooked in the United States. He shares information about how supplementing mushrooms into our diets will stimulate our immune system. He hopes that by further educating people about the health benefits, it will inspire people to incorporate all of the various mushrooms into our diets. 


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.
