My Quest for Wellth - Episode 5: The kingdom of healing mushrooms with Tero Isokauppila

I have been enjoying mushroom coffee from Four Sigmatic for more than a year now, so I was very excited to meet Tero Isokauppila, the Finnish founder and visionary of the brand and ask him everything about the mushroom kingdom.

Tero grew up in Finland, the country with the world’s highest coffee consumption and as a child he was foraging for mushrooms and other wild foods on his family’s farm.

Following this passion, later he became an expert in mushrooms and superfoods and created Four Sigmatic, a wellness company that helps people nourishing their bodies by using the world’s most nutritious foods - mushrooms and adaptogens. He basically took a century old Finish tradition to another level and created products like coffees, elixirs, edible skincare, chocolates and other superfoods that tasted delicious and are very easy to integrate in your daily diet.

Tero was chosen twice as one of the world’s Top 50 Food Activists by the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, and has been featured in Time, Forbes, BuzzFeed, Vogue, Playboy, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, and Bon Appétit.

He is also a sought-after speaker, featured at Summit Series, Wanderlust, WME-IMG, Google, and the Fast Company Innovation Festival, so you can imagine how excited I was when he accepted to do this interview!

Here is our fun and interesting conversation on ‘shrooms, which I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I did!
