What are the benefits of Wild Turkey Tail?

Turkey Tail has less critical acclaim than other medicinal mushrooms, but it is equally as beneficial. 

Primary benefits of Turkey Tail include immune boosting properties, prebiotics for gut health, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, liver protective, antitumor, cardioprotective, antidiabetic, and antimicrobial

Turkey Tail has been shown to decrease lipid peroxidation through its antioxidant capabilities, and increase glutathione levels. [2]


Wild Turkey Tail contains:

- Phenols
- Flavinoids
- Polysaccharides (b-glucans)
- Antioxidants
- Enzymes
- Sterols
- Triterpinoids
- B vitamins
- Amino acids
- Minerals (especially copper!)
- Natural vitamin D


Why Wild? 

Wild plants are far superior to conventionally, and even organically grown ones. They have a much higher nutrient capacity. 

Why? Because they are grown in biodiverse territory that benefits from the symbiotic lives of both animals and plants, that extract and give nutrition to one another.

There is no interference of industrial pollution, human intervention, pesticides, fertilizer, contaminated water, and so forth. 

The end result is an amazingly pure, excellent addition to your health. 


Unique 'ultrasonic' extraction method:

Traditional solvent extraction using organic ethanol, mixed with cold water, high speed friction extract. The medicinal components of Turkey Tail and other mushrooms include not only polysaccharides but proteins, sterols, SOD, and enzymes including catalase, peroxidase, RNAase, and DNAase, all of which are damaged or destroyed by temperatures above 180ºF. Instead of direct heat source exposure to liquid, we utilize high speed stirring at approximately 1,500 RPM for 48 hours to release and extract components using heat created by friction. This promotes molecular breakdown of chitin from cell walls while reducing any risk of medicinal compound damage from direct heat exposure.
