Why turkey tail mushroom?
While there is an abundance of mushrooms with medicinal properties, one of the most well-known is Trametes versicolor.
Commonly called turkey tail due to its striking colors, Trametes versicolor has been used around the world for centuries to treat various conditions.
Perhaps the most impressive quality of the turkey tail mushroom is its ability to enhance the health of your immune system.
Antioxidants are compounds that help inhibit or reduce damage caused by oxidative stress.
Thankfully, eating foods rich in antioxidants or supplementing with these powerful compounds can reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
Turkey tail contains an impressive array of antioxidants, including phenols and flavonoids, which promote immune system health by reducing inflammation and stimulating the release of protective compounds.
Polysaccharopeptides are protein-bound polysaccharides (carbohydrates) that are found in, for example, turkey tail mushroom extract.
Krestin (PSK) and Polysaccharide Peptide (PSP) are two types of polysaccharopeptides found in turkey tails.
Both PSK and PSP possess powerful immune-boosting properties. They promote immune response by both activating and inhibiting specific types of immune cells and by suppressing inflammation.
Due to their ability to naturally strengthen the immune system, PSP and PSK are commonly used as anticancer agents in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation in countries like Japan and China.
Research has demonstrated that turkey tail mushrooms may have antitumor properties, thought to be related to its immune-boosting effects.
Studies found that PSK, the polysaccharopeptide found in turkey tail mushrooms, inhibited the growth and spread of human colon cancer cells. A certain type of polysaccharide found in turkey tail mushrooms called Coriolus versicolor glucan (CVG) may suppress certain tumors. However, the most impressive evidence regarding the anticancer benefits of turkey tail mushroom is when it’s used in combination with more traditional treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation.
Keeping a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria in your gut is critical for maintaining a strong immune system. Turkey tail contains prebiotics, which help nourish these helpful bacteria.
Study found that consuming 3,600 mg of turkey tail mushrooms extract per day led to beneficial changes in gut bacteria.
Aside from the benefits listed above, turkey tail may promote health in other ways as well:
- May combat HPV
- May improve athletic performance and reduced
- May improve insulin resistance
Research studies on turkey tail mushroom are ongoing and more benefits of this medicinal mushroom may be discovered in the near future.
