Turkey Tail, popularly known as Coriolus versicolor, Trametes versicolor is a medicinal mushroom that has been recognized as a powerful healing tool in tradtional Asian medicine for centuries. It helps maintain excellent immune function, especially during times when the immune system would be otherwise compromised.
The trametes versicolor mushroom (Turkey Tail) has also been demonstrated strong antiviral, antimicrobial, and antitumor properties, which have been attributed to a protein-bound polysaccharide called Polysaccharide K (PSK), also known as Krestin. In the 1980s, the Japanese government approved the use of PSK for treating several types of cancers, and it is currently used to combat the disease alongside surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
Polysaccharide P (PSP), another compound from Trametes (Turkey Tail), was discovered more recently, and has been studied mainly in China. Initial research suggests that PSP may slow the growth of certain tumors and help protect the immune system, especially from the effects of cancer treatment
