Turkey Tail is a highly functional mushroom that restores, activates and boosts your immune system generating healthy flow and maximum cellular repair.
Turkey Tail is a disease prevention and immunity modulating powerhouse stacked with a variety of potent phytochemicals that when working together create a potent protective and healing medicine. The ancient TCM historical use of turkey tail matches the modern scientific profile closely. In recent years Turkey Tail has received a lot of scientific attention due to its numerous bioactivities, especially antioxidant and antiradical activities.
The prevention and treatment of chronic diseases caused by inflammation and oxidative stress such as heart disease, cancer and infectious diseases is where this mushroom is best targeted. The most recent focus on the PSK molecule used in cancer patient support is proving highly effective as it has in Japan since the 80s and in TCM for thousands of years.
