Turkey Tail Main Uses

1. Fight Cancer

2. Strengthen the Immune System

 

1. Fight Cancer

 

Turkey Tail contains two Polysaccharopeptides: Krestin (PSK) and Polysaccharide Peptide (PSP). PSK and PSP naturally strengthen the immune system and are thus commonly used as anticancer agents in conjunction with surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation.

 

PSK and PSP have both shown impressive results in a variety of cancers including oesophageal, lung, breast and colorectal. 

 

PSK has been shown to boost immune cell production, ameliorate chemotherapy and radiotherapy side effects, enhance immune status and tumor infiltration by dendritic and cytotoxic cells and significantly extend survival in cancers of the stomach, colon-rectum, oesophagus, nasopharynx, uterus and lung. 

 

PSP has shown to significantly enhance immune status in 70-90% of patients with cancers of the stomach, oesophagus, ovary and cervix. 

 

Interesting studies 

 

A review of 13 studies found that patients given 1–3.6 grams of turkey tail mushroom per day along with conventional treatment had a significant survival advantage. The study showed that people with breast cancer, gastric cancer or colorectal cancer treated with turkey tail and chemotherapy experienced a 9% reduction in 5-year mortality compared to chemotherapy alone.

 

A study in 11 women with breast cancer found that those who were given 6–9 grams of Turkey Tail powder per day following radiation therapy experienced an increase in cancer-fighting cells in the immune system, such as natural killer cells and lymphocytes.

 

Another study demonstrated that daily treatment with 45.5 mg per pound (100 mg per kg) of body weight of turkey tail mushroom extract significantly slowed the spread of cancer cells and improved survival times in dogs with highly aggressive cancer (hemangiosarcoma).

 

2. Strengthen the Immune System

 

Turkey Tail contains two Polysaccharopeptides: Krestin (PSK) and Polysaccharide Peptide (PSP). 

 

Both PSK and PSP promote immune response by activating and inhibiting specific types of immune cells and by suppressing inflammation.

 

Test-tube studies have shown that PSP increases monocytes, which are types of white blood cells that fight infection and boost immunity.

 

PSK stimulates dendritic cells that promote immunity to toxins and regulate the immune response. In addition, PSK activates specialized white blood cells called macrophages, which protect your body against harmful substances like certain bacteria.

What is the % of Polysaccharides?

 

Our Turkey Tail contains 50% polysaccharides. 

 

What does the Fruiting body or Mycelium mean in the context of Turkey Tail? 

 

A fruiting body is generally what you would visually recognize as a mushroom. It is fleshy, contains spores, and grows above ground or directly on the surface of its host, like a tree or old log. The mushroom's fruiting body comprises of a stem, cap, and gills, which are what the general populace would eat in a culinary dish, but in nature, it acts primarily as the reproductive component of a fungal system, dispersing spores and inoculating hosts. 

 

Mycelium is the main body and feeding membrane of a mushroom. It grows underground or within the host plant. While it might not look like much, the mycelium acts much like a complex network that can communicate with and adapt to its surrounding environment. Think of it like the roots of the mushrooms. 

 

Which one is better Mycelium or the Fruiting body? 

 

Fruiting bodies are considered “full spectrum” as they provide a wider array of the mushroom’s nutritional components. Fruiting bodies offer more minerals, including phosphorous, copper, zinc, and potassium. Fruiting body extracts also contain higher concentrations of vitamins, including vitamin C, vitamin D, beta-carotene, and various B vitamins. 

 

Mycelium, on the other hand, was primarily created as a “cheaper” alternative that was quicker to produce. Mycelium unfortunately contains very little of the important compounds, vitamins, and nutrients of the actual mushroom. 

 

Furthermore, mycelium is not allowed to be considered a mushroom by the FDA, but many companies in the mushroom extract industry will hide this with clever labels.

 

Which one is Antioxi's made up of? 

 

The product is a 100% fruiting body extract. The extract provides a concentrated form of the glyconutrients and healthy components present in Turkey tail. The fruiting body is where the magic is. 

 

What is difference between Turkey Tail powder and Turkey Tail Extract? 

 

An extract is a preparation that results from taking raw plant material and applying a solvent to it, such as water or alcohol. The solvent causes the dissolvable compounds to be separated from the structural part of the plant or mushroom. Extracts contain high levels of the active ingredient a particular herb or mushroom is known for. 

 

Another advantage of extracts over raw herbs is higher bioavailability – a fancy term that means they are easier for the body to absorb and use. 

 

What are the different extraction methods? 

 

Currently there are 3 methods of extracting said nutrients: Water, Alcohol and Dual (both). 

 

A hot water extract is exactly what it sounds like – using hot water to dissolve water-soluble ingredients from raw herbs or mushrooms. The same process is undergone for Alcohol extraction where the water is substituted for alcohol. In some cases, it may be beneficial to use both water and alcohol extraction – a method referred to as a dual or double extraction. 

 

Which extraction method is better? 

 

When shopping around for mushroom supplements, it is beneficial to know what kind of extraction method is used for your specific product. This will ensure that you are getting a high-quality supplement that actually works. 

 

If you are looking for a Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Turkey Tail, Shiitake, or Maitake mushroom product, you should look for a hot water extract product. This is because their most important active ingredients – beta-glucans – are water-soluble. Using alcohol or dual extraction for these mushrooms is not desirable, because alcohol would cause some of the beta-glucans to solidify and be filtered out of the liquid. 

 

On the other hand, the Reishi and Chaga mushrooms benefit from dual extraction because they contain both water-soluble beta-glucans and alcohol-soluble terpenoids. 

 

Is it safe to consume during pregnancy? 

 

Generally speaking, if you are pregnant or trying to conceive, we recommend seeking medical advice before taking Turkey Tail or any of our other products. 

 

Furthermore, to date, there has been no concerted investigation into the use of Turkey Tail in pregnancy and lactation.

The gut microbiome consists of microorganisms, which are mostly bacteria living in the gastrointestinal tract. These bacteria help us digest what we eat, as well as absorb and synthesize nutrients. The gut affects so many of our bodies’ important systems such as metabolism, weight, and immune regulation, as well as brain functions and mood. Your gut bacteria interact with immune cells and directly impact your immune response.

Turkey tail contains prebiotics, which help nourish these helpful bacteria.

Antioxidants are compounds that help inhibit or reduce damage caused by oxidative stress. Oxidative stress results from an imbalance between antioxidants and unstable molecules known as free radicals. This can result in cellular damage and chronic inflammation. 

 

Turkey tail contains an impressive array of antioxidants, including phenols and flavonoids. In fact, one study detected over 35 different phenolic compounds in a sample of turkey tail mushroom extract, along with the flavonoid antioxidants quercetin and baicalein. Phenol and flavonoid antioxidants promote immune system health by reducing inflammation and stimulating the release of protective compounds. For example, quercetin has been shown to promote the release of immunoprotective proteins, while inhibiting the release of the pro-inflammatory enzymes cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX).
