hey there

Tero Isokauppila joins us on the Better show this week and we had an awesome conversation that we are very excited for you to hear. Tero is the founder of Four Sigmatic, a mushroom company that you may have heard of. He is Finnish, a self-proclaimed nomad who loves fungi and being a food-preneur. We start off our conversation with a brief overview of mushrooms, and quickly dive into Adaptogens and Cordyceps, when and how to use them and what benefits they may have to your lifestyle & fitness routines. We discuss the thoughts around stress, and how certain fungi, food such as spices and other uncomfortable experiences can have a positive effect on the body and mind. We briefly touch on supplementation for sexual function before getting an education on Ginseng and it’s many beneficial use cases. We round out the episode with an awesome link between Santa Claus and Psychedelic mushrooms and Tero’s advice around the use of Psilocybin in today’s society.
