Sometimes while on the wild mushroom
hunt we find more than just chaga mushroom.
We recently found this turkey tail hanging out on this stump while hiking through Petroglyph’s provincial park (a sacred Native Indian grounds).
Turkey Tail is another mushroom, besides Chaga, Reishi, Lion’s Mane and Cordyceps that is packed with antioxidants that work at enhancing the T helper cells in the body to boost the immune system and is widely used in Asian medicine to help treat cancer patients.
In fact, it’s the best-selling anti-cancer drug on the Japanese market.
Japan is a pretty large market space with many herbs, superfoods, supplements to choose from when undergoing a cancer treatment protocol, so to say that Turkey Tail is numbero uno is significant.
It’s pretty easy to identity turkey tails by their beautiful colour, blue pigmentation’s and vibrance hanging off rotting wood. If you want to be certain you’ve found Turkey Tail, then you need to rub their top side and feel for a velvety soft texture.
Also known by their scientific classification as “Trametes versicolor” – as well as Coriolus versicolor and Polyporus versicolor – it’s a polypore medicinal mushroom found throughout the world.
It’s name translating to ‘of several colours’, versicolor reliably describes this fungus that displays different colors.
Health Benefits of Turkey Tail Mushrooms
The most reputable elements that make Turkey Tail mushroom bad-ass for your health are it’s Polysaccharide K (PSK) and polysaccharide-peptide (PSP) which in the 1980’s, the Japanese government accepted as a use in treatment of several types of cancer.
Turkey tail has also been shown to enhance white blood cell (the cells that destroy unwelcome invaders in your body) activity in scavenging toxins and destroying pathogens.
If you know someone today that’s going through a surgery, chemotherapy and radiation “therapy” (because they’re too misinformed to go it naturally), then at least get them taking this radiant medicinal mushroom in a dual extraction form (hot water and alcohol extracted) to offset some of the damaging effects of the drug/surgical routes.
