Mushrooms are a great superfood that we’re not talking about enough, especially when it comes to healthy aging. Aging doesn’t happen when you’re 65 and all of a sudden you’re old. It occurs gradually, and you have to start taking care of yourself now, and mushrooms will help you ease the process. All mushrooms have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties, but each has a unique benefit to your health.
Incorporating medicinal mushrooms like Cordyceps and Lion’s Mane into your daily health routine can support healthy aging. The combination of these two powerful mushrooms can help clear brain fog, provide relief from hot flashes, boost low sexual drive, and increase energy and vitality that often decline with age. Cordyceps, known as the Himalayan Viagra in traditional Tibetan medicine, is a stamina builder while Lion’s Mane is traditionally used for cognitive memory and concentration functions. Don’t let age slow you down – add these powerful mushrooms to healthy aging.
In this episode, Founder of West Wolf Medicinals Nicole Pressly Wolf reveals the amazing benefits of medicinal mushrooms in enhancing your overall health and promoting healthy aging.

About Nicole Pressly Wolf –
Raised as a city girl and a lifelong environmental activist, journalist, and secret science nerd, Nicole never imagined she could farm or care directly for the earth beyond her written activism. Moving West, she wanted her next “career” to be intentional work in a practical and tactile environment, not in front of a computer. Oh, and yeah — for the benefit of all.
Now, with America’s fungi awakening, Nicole has found her true way forward. Since the move, she has become fascinated with mushrooms and devoured books, films, and teachings. She attended numerous mushroom-growing workshops. Nicole started a daily supplement of powdered mushrooms looking for support with all that comes with aging, from brain power to general energy. Within weeks she noticed her memory had improved, and her energy was up. She was hooked! All that she has learned about the fungi kingdom inspires awe and wonder. Farming mushrooms and creating a permaculture farm has allowed her to offer health to her family, community, and the planet.
