Turkey Tail is a very impressive mushroom with a wide range of health benefits. It is widely known for being a natural immune supplement supporting immune and digestive functions. It is a common polypore mushroom found on fallen logs or tree stumps throughout the year and throughout the world. They are one of the most expensive medicinal mushrooms not because they're hard to forage or grow, but because of their astounding medicinal benefits. There's a rich history of use in traditional Chinese herbalism for digestion, immune support, liver health, and upper respiratory function. The fiber is beneficial as a prebiotic and may aid in feeding healthy flora in our digestive tract and improve microbiome balance. There are two very important polysaccharides present in Turkey Tail: PSP and PSK and both have been shown to promote a healthy immune system.
Studies conducted in both Korea and Japan have shown that daily intake of turkey tail mushroom for patients also going through radiation and chemotherapy, may help reduce recidivism rates of gastric, breast, colorectal and lung cancers by boosting overall immune system health and performance during treatment. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3503532/
