The Incredible Turkey tail Mushrooms

Turkey tail mushrooms, scientifically known as Trametes versicolor can found in all of our blends because of their adaptogenic properties and incredible ability to support immune and gut health. Which go hand in hand because your immune health is directly impacted by your gut health, which is directly correlated to your mental health.

 

Turkey Tails are one of the most studied medicinal mushrooms in the world and has long been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to replenish essence and qi. The mushroom is famous for containing two polysaccharides, PSP and PSK, also known as beta glucans which have been known to have strong immunological values.

 

Turkey tail mushrooms are a prebiotic which is one of the reasons they are able to aid in digestive health. Prebiotics are essentially "food" for your microbiome. They provide the nourishment that probiotics need to flourish.  The PSP mentioned above is what acts as the prebiotic to modulate human intestinal microbiome composition.
