When it comes to having an ally for your physical and mental health ADAPTOGENS are key! These powerful super herbs and super mushrooms are vital components of my wellbeing regime. I can’t even start telling you the positive impact they have on your body and mind once you add them to your life.

To really dive deep, I’ve asked my good friend — and founder of Four Sigmatic — Tero Isokauppila to join me once again and give us a clear understanding of what adaptogens are, how to use them, and why they are so epic for your physical and mental health. So, if you want to boost your immune system, have healthy skin, increase your energy and improve your overall wellbeing you MUST listen to this episode.

About Tero Isokauppila:

Founder of Four Sigmatic — a functional foods company that wants to make the world’s most studied and nutrient dense foods more delicious and easier to consume — Tero is an expert in all things related to nutrition, health and wellness. His roots (or mycelium, if you will) are in Finland, where he grew up growing and foraging natural foods on his 13th-generation family’s farm. Tero is the author of Healing Mushrooms, Santa Sold Shrooms and his most recent book Healing Adaptogens.
