Teelixir Turkey Tail(Trametes versicolor)is one of the most popular and widely researched superfood mushrooms in the world.
Scientific studies show much promise in its ability to improve digestion and gut health, and help balance and fortify the immune system.
In Asia, Turkey Tail has been used for thousands of years as a medicinal tea to promote excellent health and overall wellbeing. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), it’s used to strengthen the physique, increase energy, boost antioxidants and support the lungs, liver, heart, and spleen.
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.
