Trametes mushroom is one of the most ubiquitous of the fungi kingdom, growing in many regions of the world with a well-documented historical usage spanned across many ancient cultures. It is known as the “turkey tail” mushroom in the West, as its fan shape bears a strong resemblance to the tail of a standing turkey.
The most rigorously studied of all mushrooms, several human studies support the use of turkey tail for modern-day disease prevention and as an adjunct treatment to bolster the immune system during medical procedures.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) classic texts often refer to its ability to dispel wind and damp whilst resolving upper respiratory infection, increasing stamina and treating abnormal cells. It is recognised as a Qi and Spleen, Lung and Liver supporting herb.
Our carefully water-extracted turkey tail is wild-harvested Di Dao from China's Changbai Mountains. Turkey tail mainly grows on the dead, dying, or fallen branches of broad-leaf trees. They also grow on decaying coniferous trees such as larch and black pine.
Turkey tail is potentially contraindicated for those who are allergic to culinary mushrooms. No information on the safety of turkey tail during pregnancy or lactation has been identified in the scientific or traditional literature.
