Turkey Tail Powder
Trametes versicolor, commonly known as turkey tail mushroom, is packed with antioxidants that work at enhancing the T helper cells in the body to boost the immune system. Some of these antioxidants include phenols, flavonoids, Quercetin and Baicelein.
The most reputable elements that make Turkey Tail mushroom optimum for health are it’s Polysaccharide K (PSK) and polysaccharide-peptide (PSP). In the 1980’s, the Japanese government accepted as a use in treatment of several types of cancer.
Turkey tail has been shown to enhance white blood cell (the cells that destroy unwelcome invaders in your body) activity in scavenging toxins and destroying pathogens. It has been used in eastern medicine to aid with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Turkey tail offers vitamin c benefits, fiber to promote gut health. In TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) it is used for its cleansing and detoxifying properties. Ancient Chinese formulations have long been believed to generally promote health, strength, and longevity. Laboratory studies suggest it may have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antiviral, and anti-tumor properties.
Turkey tails may help reduce chronic inflammation and aid in conditions such as physical discomfort, difficulty sleeping, digestive issues, fatigue and help enhance overall mood.
Turkey tails contain prebiotics, the fibers that gut bacteria feed on to survive and thrive. Some studies have found that compounds in these mushrooms “led to clear and consistent microbiome changes consistent with its activity as a prebiotic.” While more studies are needed, turkey tails may be a way to improve your digestion, and in turn, your immunity.
