Turkey Tail Mycelium: Additional Benefits For Boosting Defences

“In my scientific opinion, mushroom products not incorporating mycelium are at a decided disadvantage, given the results of recent research.” — Paul Stamets, Renowned Mycologist.

You may have heard a lot about the incredible benefits that Turkey Tail has for helping to boost the body’s natural defences – but did you know that the Turkey Tail mycelium is responsible for many of its beneficial effects?

What is the mushroom mycelium?

The mycelium is the intricate ‘roots’ of the mushroom, branching out beneath the surface in a vast network of fine filaments. It is the first stage of the mushroom life cycle, which facilitates the growth of the fruiting body and its nutrient absorption.

As it requires a much more sophisticated (and expensive) growing process, most mushroom suppliers don’t include it in their supplements. We believe this critical part of the mushroom is as valuable as the fruiting body, which is why we include it in all our mushroom blends. 

Why is the Turkey Tail mycelium so important?

Whilst the fruiting body of Turkey Tail contains many important compounds that support the body’s defences, research supports that the Turkey Tail mycelium contains beneficial active compounds not found in the fruiting body – so we combine both to give you a full spectrum Turkey Tail product.
Amongst its unique bioactive compounds and nutrients, Turkey Tail’s mycelium contains soluble fibres like beta-glucans, which are known for their beneficial effects when it comes to your body’s defences. 
The Turkey Tail mycelium also offers powerful prebiotic properties, feeding the beneficial bacteria in your gut and supporting a healthy gut microbiome. Given the close relationship between gut health and overall wellbeing, it’s a fantastic super food to add to your health routine.
