You have found the best Turkey Tail in the world…
- Grown in Australia: Mushrooms are highly absorbent. They will absorb the heavy metals and toxins from the environment in which they are in. Thus if they are grown in polluted areas or with unclean water they can be dangerous to consume.
- Superior drying process: Our Turkey Tail mushrooms are not just grown in the pollution-free Yarra Valley (Victoria); but they are also freeze dried in Victoria. Freeze drying is considered the most superior process of drying. It allows for a much more nutrient dense product that is almost identical to the fresh form of the product. The cost is far greater and thus many imported Turkey Tail mushrooms are spray dried or sun dried.
- Contains the potent mycelium: Our Turkey Tail includes the mycelium of the mushroom (the “roots” of the mushroom below the surface) not just the fruiting body. World-renowned mycologists like Paul Stamets believe a lot of the benefits of Turkey Tail are contained in the mycelium.
- Not an extract: Extracts contain mostly alcohol or water with some of the mushrooms water-soluble elements. We prefer to sell the entire mushroom (and the mycelium) grounded up. This is as close to it’s natural state as possible.
What’s so good about it?
This amazing mushroom is known for its incredible ability to boost your immune system and reduce inflammation thanks to the 35 phenol and flavonoid antioxidants it contains. It also contains powerful polysaccharopeptides which further support your immune system.It contains Krestin which has been shown to be effective at reducing the spread of some diseases and boosting the effectiveness of chemotherapy in some studies – but more research is needed.There is also some evidence to show it can improve your gut health as it contains prebiotics. Turkey Tail has been shown to increase populations of beneficial bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.
Used to boost immune system + for post surgery recovery…
“Numerous in vitro and in vivo studies show enhancement of immune functions, antiviral effects, and cholesterol-regulating effects, among others. New clinical trials demonstrate improved quality of life after surgery and in combination with chemotherapy, as well as extended 5- and 10-year survival rates, especially for patients with colorectal and stomach…”Read the studyIngredients: Turkey Tail Mushroom (Trametes versicolor), Mushroom Substrate (brown rice traces & mycelium).
I'm serious about quality.
"If at anytime prior to the best before date, you think this product is not of the highest quality - I insist that you return it for a refund."

Why our mushrooms contain minute traces of brown rice..
The brown rice is the growing medium and most of it is consumed by the mushroom during the growing period. However the mycelium can not be separated from the brown rice entirely and thus there is some brown rice in the finished product.Whilst it is more complicated (and expensive) process for us to include the mycelium in the finished product, we feel it is necessary to provide the best quality product we can. This is inline with the findings of medicinal mushroom experts such as Paul Stamets.Don’t take our word for it! Check out this scientific study that “once again confirms that not only the mycelium but the substrate on which it is grown becomes profoundly immune enhancing.”
Why we don’t sell extracts..
An extract requires the removal of some parts of the mushroom in preference for others. When you isolate a compound from a wholefood you remove components which assist the body with the absorption and digestion of the mushroom.In our experience, it is most beneficial to consume a wholefood, as close to the natural state of the mushroom as possible.The argument competitors make for selling extracts is that the chitin is not easily broken down during digestion. Our mushrooms are heated prior to powdering (to remove bacteria) and this is more than sufficient to break down the cell wall so the the chitin is bioavailable .
Paul Stamets discusses his experience in using Turkey Tail to treat his mother as well as scientific studies that support his findings.
