“The worst part about those grain-based mushroom products is that they can have all of those ‘merit badges’, organically certified, gluten free, kosher, and it still wouldn’t be great.”

-Jeff Chilton


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. 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.
Jeff is a founding member of the World Society for Mushroom Biology and Mushroom Products and a Member of the International Society for Mushroom Science. Nammex extracts are noted for their high quality based on scientific analysis of the active compounds. In today’s talk we delve into mushrooms and how they can be used to help our bones and overall health. Jeff gives great tips on what to look for when purchasing mushrooms and mushroom supplements.
