Medicinal Uses of Turkey Tail Mushrooms


by Karen Lawton

 

The turkey tail mushroom (Trametes versicolor), like most fungi, is very useful to the ecology of the forest, as it helps decompose hardwood. Due to its ability to help cancer patients, turkey tail is considered the one of the best researched mushrooms.

 

 

 

Many edible mushrooms contain selenium, vitamin D and vitamin B3, which is part of what makes them strong immune boosters, in addition to the nutrient-rich soil and decaying matter where they live. The highly abundant turkey tail mushroom, graces many of our native woodlands here in the UK, named for the colourful palette of stripes which are so similar to a plume of tail feathers on turkeys.

Turkey tail mushrooms have been brewed for thousands of years by herbalists for a plethora of health issues including boosting immunity, preventing viral infections like colds and flus, genital warts (HPV) and have been utilised in the treatment of HIIV. They are brilliant as a pre/probiotic nourishing the human biome and aiding in digestive health, supporting and aiding in healing from various cancers, also used as a wonderful adjunct to chemotherapy.
