The Link Between Turkey Tail and Your Health

The Turkey Tail mushroom (Trametes versicolor) has long been championed in Chinese medicine for its beneficial properties, among them the ability to help modulate immune responses and support longevity. How does this versatile functional mushroom help to promote healthy aging and longevity? ‡ 

Turkey Tail vs. Aging 

The Turkey Tail mushroom can help support your body and fight back against various aging processes. There are “Zombie cells” floating about in your system that interrupt your body’s power to regenerate itself. Turkey Tail mushrooms have the power to help “turn off” these cells, so they can be cleared away and make room for new cells. ‡ 

Turkey Tail vs. an Overactive or Underactive Immune System 

Another Turkey Tail mushroom benefit: antioxidants! These work hard in your system to prevent oxidation, or aging, and release supportive compounds while reducing inflammation.   

If your immune system is underactive or overactive, adding Turkey Tail can help your body regulate the immune response. Results can include improved heart, lung, stomach and spleen function. ‡ 

Turkey Tail vs. Poor or Compromised Gut Health 

Adding Turkey Tail mushrooms to your diet sends them right into your digestive tract, where they can go to work to help support your entire digestive system.  

Mushroom powders are ideal for nourishing the beneficial bacteria found in your gut. They boost your digestive health with natural probiotics, balancing your intestinal flora and improving how your body handles the introduction of food, beverages, and even medications. ‡ 

Using Turkey Tail As Part of Your Wellness Plan 

Adding Turkey Tail to your diet to support longevity is easy, thanks to powdered functional mushroom options. Get your daily dose with a tablespoon of mushroom powder stirred into tea, coffee, or soup, sprinkled on food before eating, baked into a brownie or muffin, or blended into a fruit and vegetable smoothie. ‡
