Four Sigmatic is a pioneering mental wellness and performance company at the forefront of the global mushroom movement, providing millions of people with a unique path to improved focus, heightened energy, and a profound sense of calm. Founded by Tero Isokauppila, the 13th generation of his family to grow and forage real foods on their farm in Finland, Four Sigmatic blends tradition with innovation. After earning degrees in Chemistry, Business, and Plant-Based Nutrition at Cornell University, Tero began to infuse functional mushrooms into everyday American favorites, like coffee and protein.
With over a decade of dedication, Four Sigmatic has risen to become the number-one brand for mushroom coffee and protein. Under Tero's guidance, their range of products encapsulates Nordic traditions' wisdom and the transformative potential of mushrooms. Tero is an authority in nutrition, mushrooms, and adaptogens, and his contributions extend beyond the products themselves. As the author of three best-selling books - "Healing Mushrooms," an educational cookbook from Avery Publishing, "Healing Adaptogens," an educational health book from Hay House, and "Santa Sold Shrooms," a delightful children's book for adults that uncovers the magical origins of Santa Claus - Tero has shared his knowledge and passion with the world.
Recognized as one of the world's Top 50 Food Activists by the Academy of Culinary Nutrition, Tero Isokauppila, and Four Sigmatic have been featured in prestigious publications such as Time, Forbes, BuzzFeed, Vogue, Playboy, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, and Bon Appétit. Tero's expertise doesn't stop at the page; he is a sought-after speaker and has graced the stages of influential events, including Summit Series, Wanderlust, WME-IMG, Google, and the Fast Company Innovation Festival. Balancing his time between Austin, TX, and his family farm in Finland, along with his wife and two children, Tero continues to lead Four Sigmatic's mission to empower individuals in their pursuit of mental well-being and performance through the magic of functional mushrooms.
