Turkey Tail [Trametes versicolor]

Turkey Tail is a polypore mushroom whose shape and swirling variegated colors resemble a wild turkey's tail.

Practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have used this mushroom for centuries as an immunomodulator that both boosts immune function and helps fight infections.

Turkey Tail is known in particular for its potent natural polysaccharides, a protein-bound molecule called polysaccharide K (PSK), one of many polysaccharides that studies have shown can support a healthy and robust immune response.

As well, polysaccharide peptide (PSP) can help support the management of the inflammatory response at the cellular level and support the digestive system by acting as a prebiotic to modulate the intestinal microbiome composition.
