Turkey Tail - Powerful Immunity Activator
Turkey tail mushrooms, also known as Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor, were named for their concentric rings of brown and tan, which give a resemblance to the tail feathers of a turkey. Unlike many other medicinal mushrooms, turkey tail mushrooms are too tough and chewy and are not considered palatable. However, they work great as a supplement!
In many Asian cultures, turkey tail symbolizes longevity and health, spiritual attunement, and infinity. Turkey tail mushrooms have been used for centuries by traditional medicines as an immunomodulator that supports immune function and helps fight infections. Recently, the turkey tail mushroom has earned a lot of public attention due to studies that demonstrate its ability to support immune function, gut health and liver health.*

Mushrooms vs Mycelia
For thousands of years, mushrooms have been used by the world’s great holistic traditions for their health benefits. Today, countless Americans use them as supplements. However, most “mushroom” products are not mushrooms at all. They are mycelia.
Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of fungi that grow up through the ground. Mycelia are root-like structures that grow underground. Because mycelia that grows in the wild are too fragile to harvest, those in supplements are grown in plastic bags on rice or other grains. As they mature, they become part of the grain. Because they cannot later be separated, what ends up in your capsule is over 50% grain.
Mushroom benefits stem from mushroom nutrition, and mushroom fruiting bodies provide more of it than grain-grown mycelia. The fruiting bodies provide: ✓ More vitamins and minerals ✓ More ergothioneines (a potent dietary antioxidant amino acid) ✓ More di- and triterpenes (immunomodulators) ✓ Over 20 times more immune-enhancing Beta-(1,3) (1,6)-D-Glucans.
