The Nutritional and Medicinal Properties of Mushrooms | Julian Mitchell

Listen Now

In Episode #26 of The Proof podcast, I talked with Julian Mitchell about the nutritional and medicinal properties of mushrooms. Julian is the co-founder of Life Cykel, an Australian-based private company that forages for mushrooms and grows them under specific conditions before extracting the medicinal components and packaging them as extracts. On top of that, Julian and his team have set up the National Mushroom Network, which offers everyday people a way to grow commercial amounts of mushrooms in their backyards to service their local communities while generating an income at the same time.

In this episode, we discussed Julian’s personal path to discovering a passion for sustainable food alternatives, how Life Cykel was founded, the different types of medicinal mushrooms and their benefits, and much more.
