USE TURKEY TAIL TO: Treat the com­mon cold and flu Aid di­ges­tion Help heal in­fec­tions

Turkey tail earned its name due to the mush­room’s fan shape, which re­sem­bles the tail end of Thanks­giv­ing’s fa­vorite bird. Its Latin name means “of sev­eral col­ors ,” which is also fit­ting, as this mush­room can be iden­ti­fied by the con­cen­tric cir­cles of vary­ing col­ors that ap­pear on its fruit­ing body.

Like many other mush­rooms, turkey tail is full of polysac­cha­rides and triter­penes that give it its im­muno-mod­u­lat­ing prop­er­ties, pro­vid­ing over­all im­mune sup­port and reg­u­la­tion. But what sets turkey tail apart are two of its unique beta- glu­cans: PSK and PSP.

PSK has re­ceived na­tional me­dia at­ten­tion for its an­ti­cancer prop­er­ties. PSK and PSP in turkey tail have the abil­ity to re­gen­er­ate white blood cells ( which are nec­es­sary to ward off in­fec­tion) and stim­u­late the ac­tiv­ity and cre­ation of T- cells, macrophages, and nat­u­ral killer ( NK) cells, en­abling the im­mune sys­tem to once again ward off and de­stroy pathogens. PSK is the best- sell­ing an­ti­cancer drug in Ja­pan, and is used in com­bi­na­tion with surgery, chemo­ther­apy, and ra­di­a­tion ther­apy. Ed­i­tor’s Prod­uct Pick: Host De­fense Turkey Tail
