The Turkey Tail vegan mushroom with immune supporting benefits is one of the most researched functional mushrooms for its powerful polysaccharides (immunity activators), organic Turkey Tail helps you feel battle-ready.
Turkey tail mushroom contains the some of the highest levels of beta-glucans of all the medicinal mushrooms. Two potent adjunct therapy medicines, PSK and PSP, have been developed in Japan and China from this amazing mushroom. Mushroom beta-glucans are potent immune system modulators and all of our products are measured for the active levels of beta-glucans.
Turkey Tail has an ancient history of being used as a medicinal mushroom. In many Asian cultures, turkey tails’ inuring cloud forms symbolize longevity and health, spiritual attunement and infinity. It was traditionally brewed into a soothing tea and has been used for centuries in TCM to clear damp condition, increase energy, strengthen the lungs, stomach and spleen
and to assist in convalescence from long-term diseases.
PREPARATION: We love adding up to ½ a teaspoon to drinks like tea, coffee, or smoothies for an extra health kick. With its light flavour profile.
Alternatively, you might want to try this the way Chinese people have for hundreds of years by mixing ½ teaspoon with around 250ml of hot water to create a tea that has a smooth, almost coffee-like flavour.
