The Turkey Tail mushrooms have been widely researched because of their medicinal properties. They are very nutritious and a source of antioxidants.

The most special part of Turkey Tail is the high content of polysaccharides. Polysaccharides can help fight various diseases and improve the immune system.

About the Turkey Tail

The Turkey Tail is called Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor in Latin. The mushroom resembles the fan-shaped feather tail of a turkey, hence the English name Turkey Tail. In the Netherlands it is known as Elfenbankje, because of different colorful layers.

The Turkey Tail not only has a wonderful appearance but also some wonderful properties are attributed to the mushroom. Centuries ago in Asia they were already convinced of the beneficial effect. For example, the Turkey Tail has been used in traditional medicine in China and Japan to combat various diseases. Centuries later in Asia, supported by science, they are still convinced of the medicinal properties of the Turkey Tail.

Medicinal properties

It is now clear that the Turkey Tail can be very good for the body. The mushroom, for example, has many phenolic components such as flavonoids. These act as very powerful antioxidants. The substances can fight inflammation, inhibit free radicals and have a detoxifying effect. The Turkey Tail also has prebiotic properties, which can support the gastrointestinal tract and improve bowel movements.

What the Turkey Tail is mainly known for is the presence of polysaccharide-k (PSK) and polysaccharide peptides (PSP). These substances have some promising properties that can improve the immune system and provide support for virus-related problems such as the flu, herpes and the common cold.

This is because PSP can increase monocytes, a type of white blood cell that can fight infection. PSK in turn stimulates dendritic cells and macrophages, which can help protect the body against harmful substances, bacteria and potentially even cancer.

Polysaccharides and Cancer Treatment

A drug that can potentially support cancer treatment, and just from nature? That almost sounds too good to be true. Still, studies indicate that polysaccharides can play a positive role in different types of treatments. In Japan, for example, an isolated form of PSK has already been approved and is used to support chemotherapy, surgery and radiation.

Other recent studies also point to the promising properties of PSP and PSK. For example, the polysaccharides seem to have a positive effect in the treatment of colon cancer, breast cancer, stomach cancer and lung cancer. Please note: we do not claim that Turkey Tail is a medicine. Yet the studies are so promising that it is worth mentioning.
