An established tradition of immune support

Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor) mushroom is native to the continents of Europe, Asia and North America, where it thrives on fallen logs in mixed hardwood deciduous forests. Whilst abundant and edible, it's not particularly palatable due to the tough outer texture of the fruiting body (the visible, harvested part of the mushroom). Turkey Tail has held a prized position in the traditional health systems of China and Native American herbalism, and is now also one of the most well-researched of the functional mushrooms known for its gut and immune supporting health properties. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Turkey Tail is known as Yun Zhi and was most often brewed as a tea to clear dampness, support energy, respond to microbial threats, and nurture immune via the lungs, gut and spleen.

Look to your gut to support immune health

The healthy functioning of the gut is critical for supporting optimal immune health as over 70% of the body's immune cells are located within the digestive system. The fruiting body of Turkey Tails contain a wealth of phytonutrients including antioxidants and polysaccharides called beta-glucans that are well studied for their support of immune health and overall wellness. These properties support normal, healthy cell growth and turnover, as well as providing support against various intrinsic and environmental factors that can promote cellular damage. The two most researched polysaccharides found in Turkey Tail are PSK (polysaccharide K) and PSP (polysaccharide peptide) which support immune health via immune supporting cells, including the white blood cells natural killer cells and T cells. These polysaccharide substances also support gut health acting as nourishing prebiotics to support a healthy microbiome and in turn healthy digestive, liver and immune function.
