About Turkey Tail

In the 15th century, Trametes versicolour, as a tea, was listed in the Materia Medica (Ben Cao Gang Mu) to be beneficial to the spirit (Shen), vital energy(Chi), and able to strengthen bone and tendon. Since the 1960s, extracts of Turkey Tail have been used in China and Japan for the treatment of many different cancers, gathering clinical experience as licensed medicinal products. As a result, Turkey Tail is one of the most well-researched medicinal mushrooms. Traditionally it has been used to increase circulation, for skin complaints, to help with arthritis, rheumatism, and gout. Widely distributed throughout the boreal, temperate, subtropical, and tropical regions of the world. Few mushrooms can boast such adaptivity, and variety of forms – hence the name versicolour. It is most common polypore found on dead hardwoods, more rarely on conifers.

Dosage & Use

Recommended Dosage:

1-2ml daily, either diluted in tea, coffee, water, food or taken directly from dropper to mouth. Do not exceed this.
