Turkey Tail may help boost your body’s natural defences and boost disease resistance.
Turkey Tail contains a range of powerful prebiotics that support good gut health.
It contains powerful flavonoids and phenols that can strengthen your body’s ability to manage inflammation.

Why is this the best Turkey Tail in Australia?
1. Firstly, it’s grown in Australia – that’s pretty epic. Mushrooms are highly absorbent. They will absorb the heavy metals and toxins from the environment in which they are in. If they are grown in polluted areas or with unclean water they can be dangerous to consume.
2. Our Victorian mushrooms have a superior drying process: Our Turkey Tail mushrooms are not just grown in the pollution-free Victoria; but they are also freeze dried in Victoria. Freeze drying is the most superior form 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 which is why many imported Turkey Tail mushrooms are spray dried.
3. These mushrooms contain the potent mycelium (the mushroom’s life force). 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.
4. A whole food – and nothing else: An extract contains mostly alcohol or water with small amounts of the water-soluble parts of the mushroom. Our Turkey Tail is the entire ground mushroom (so you have a product as close to its natural state as possible).

What’s so good about Turkey Tail?
This amazing mushroom is known for its incredible immune activating properties and reduced 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, as well as playing a role in the treatment of breast cancer. Turkey Tail has been shown to increase populations of beneficial bacteria such as Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.
Used to support the immune system & for post surgery recovery…
According to one study, “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).

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 which is why 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 essential 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.
“In my scientific opinion, mushroom products not incorporating mycelium are at a decided disadvantage” – Paul Stamets World Renowned Mycologist (read this blog post to find out why we always incorporate mycelium into our products)
When you isolate a compound from a wholefood you remove components that assist the body with the absorption and digestion of the mushroom. In our experience, it is most beneficial to consume the 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 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.

So there are some pretty significant studies on Turkey tail mushroom and breast cancer.

Hey Tracey we are not allowed to make any suggestions regarding children as these foods have not been tested on Children. I’d suggest you pose the question to our community group which can be found here https://m.facebook.com/groups/forestsuperfoods/?tsid=0.10893164603821193&source=result so that you can get some anecdotal information.
