Mushrooms, the little fungi of the Earth, have been part of human medical studies for thousands of years. During all this time, humans have gone through the rigorous process of trial and error to figure out which mushrooms can be ingested and which are toxic and dangerous. Why? Because mushrooms have been used in Oriental medicine for their remarkable medicinal properties.
Some medicinal mushrooms have been revered so strongly in the past that this respect has carried through to the modern era. One such mushroom is the Turkey Tail Mushroom, known to the scientific community by the Latin name ‘Trametes Versicolor’ or ‘Coriolus Versicolor’. Its common name comes from its unique appearance, shape, and colors that uncannily resemble a turkey’s tail.
However, the Turkey Tail Mushroom came into contemporary medicinal discourse and started gaining modern fame because of its promise in a particularly sensitive medical issue – cancer treatment.
Promising studies for cancer treatment
A seven-year-long study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) was recently published in the ISRN Oncology Journal. This study’s theme was the use of Turkey Tail mushrooms for the treatment of women with breast cancer. Breast cancer is one of the most prevalent in women, and have resulted in fatalities over the years. This is why the results of the multi-year research study were so significant and promising.
After a cancer patient undergoes radiotherapy, their immunity – their body’s natural disease-fighting ability – usually drops. According to the study, Turkey Tail’s properties of immune system-augmentation and slowing down of cancer-cell growth made it a supplementary medication for breast cancer patients.
This is also promising because of how abundant Turkey Tail mushrooms are, unlike the rare Reishi and Lion’s Mane. Their abundance makes them utterly convenient for a disease that affects so many people worldwide.

Turkey Tail is a perfect supplement for your daily routine, guaranteeing to make your day a lot better because of its natural health benefits.
