Turkey Tail mushroom, also known as Yun Zhi in traditional Chinese medicine, has been used for thousands of years. It displays a beautiful array of concentric, colored rings and grows in tiled layers on tree trunks. Acting upon the lung, spleen, and liver meridians, Turkey Tail mushroom helps replenish and tonify the body’s vital energy, or Qi. It also clears excess ‘dampness’ and ‘heat’, terms traditionally used in Chinese medicine to describe metabolic waste, toxicity, malfunction, and excessive fluids in the body.
Turkey Tail mushroom contains unique sugars known as polysaccharides, which have been studied widely in both Asia and North America for their immune-enhancing properties. However, an extensive and growing body of modern medical research alongside traditional knowledge points to a variety of applications for Turkey Tail mushrooms in the realm of modern and alternative systems of medicine.
Helvetia’s Turkey Tail mushroom supplements are spagyric extracts, dual extracted to achieve a full spectrum of both water and alcohol soluble active compounds.
Helvetia’s TURKEY TAIL spagyric extract is packed in vegan, enteric-coated capsules. These are specially designed to remain intact as they pass through the stomach and its acids, thus allowing the body to maximize absorption of the active compounds in the intestines. This delivery system significantly increases bioavailability as compared to conventional capsules or solid extracts.
