Benefits of Turkey Tail Mushroom
- Gut and Digestion
- Boosts Antioxidants
Turkey Tail is one of the most common medicinal mushrooms found throughout the world.
True to its name, its multi-coloured cap resembles the diverse colour arrangement of a wild turkey's tail. Its fan-shaped fruiting body grows in overlapping clusters on dead hardwood trees, stumps, and branches. Its ubiquity makes it one of the easiest medicinal mushrooms to forage in the wild.
Turkey Tail contains a wide spectrum of beneficial properties for human health.
It’s loaded with triterpenes and immunologically active polysaccharides, including the well-studied protein bound PSK (polysaccharide krestin), PSP (polysaccharide peptide), and beta-glucans (1,3 and 1,4). These compounds give Turkey Tail its incredible immunomodulating properties that help regulate and support overall immune health.
