What is turkey tail?

Turkey tail mushrooms are a fan-shaped medicinal fungus that grow on dead logs and tree stumps worldwide. The mushroom gets its name from its colourful concentric bands that resemble the tail feathers of a turkey.

Scientific Studies

We have a database with tens of thousands of studies on the products we sell. Here we have summarised some of the most interesting studies related to Turkey Tail.

Study 1

Study type: 

Randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study

Purpose:

To evaluate the ability of turkey tail polysaccharide peptide to relieve symptoms of advanced lung cancer.

Dose:

3.06 g/day of turkey tail polysaccharide peptide (3 x 3 x 340 mg capsules; three capsules thrice a day)

Participants:

68 patients with non-small cell lung cancer, aged 34-82 years; 58 patients were evaluated 

Duration:

4 weeks

Results:

The researchers observed significant improvements in various health indicators among the patients receiving turkey tail mushroom, while no such improvements were observed in the control group. These improvements included increased white blood cell counts, elevated levels of immune system proteins (serum IgG and IgM), and a reduction in body fat percentage. Increased white blood cells, as well as elevated levels of immune system proteins like serum IgG and IgM, are beneficial because they show that the immune system is actively responding to potential threats and is working to protect the body from infections and diseases.

Study 2

Study type: 

Case report

Purpose:

To investigate how turkey tail mushroom supplements and chemotherapy affect and change the functioning of the immune system of patients with breast cancer.

Dose:

4 g/day of turkey tail mushroom and a 17-species mushroom formula containing polysaccharides (beta-glucans, arabinoxylane, glucose, xylose, galactose, cordycepic acid, glycoproteins, ergosterols, triterpenoids, and other myconutrients).

Additional treatments:

Maintenance therapy with Herceptin (a medication used in the treatment of certain types of breast cancer) every 3 weeks

Participant:

An 83-year-old woman diagnosed in June 2009 with advanced, metastatic inflammatory breast cancer.

Results:

The case report highlighted that the patient, who took a daily dose of turkey tail mushroom alongside a combined mushroom formula and Herceptin treatment for three and a half years, maintained an active and vibrant lifestyle and remained free of the disease.

Study 3

Study type: 

Rodent study (mice with immunodeficiency)

Purpose:

To investigate the anti-tumor effects of a substance extracted from turkey tail mushroom called protein-bound polysaccharide K. Protein-bound polysaccharide K has been studied for its potential health benefits, including improvements in the functioning of the immune system.  

Dose:

20 mg/kg three times daily of protein-bound polysaccharide K from turkey tail or control (saline/saltwater solution)

Duration:

17 days

Results:

The protein-bound polysaccharide K from the turkey tail led to a significant reduction in tumour growth compared to the control group on day 17 after tumour implantation.

The researchers also found that protein-bound polysaccharide K from the turkey tail not only reached the tumour tissue, but also the spleen and liver.

Study 1

Study type: 

Preliminary clinical trial 

Purpose:

To investigate the effects of turkey tail in combination with reishi mushroom on oral human papillomavirus (HPV). Oral HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that mostly spreads through oral sex or mouth-to-mouth contact. 

Dose:

200 mg/day of turkey tail and reishi mushrooms (2 x 100 mg capsules) or 400 mg/day of chicken of the woods mushroom (2 x 200 mg capsules)

Participants:

61 oral HPV positive patients 

Duration:

2 months

Results:

The researchers observed that in the group receiving turkey tail and reishi mushroom treatment, 87.8% of the cases showed clearance of oral HPV after 2 months of administration. In contrast, in the control group (treated with chicken of the woods mushroom), only 5% of the cases showed clearance of oral HPV. No adverse events were reported during the study. The results suggest that the combination of turkey tail and reishi mushroom may be an effective treatment for eliminating oral HPV infections.

Study 1

Study type: 

Randomised clinical trial

Purpose:

To compare the effects of turkey tail mushroom polysaccharopeptide to a commonly used antibiotic medication (amoxicillin) on the human gut microbiome. The human gut microbiome is a complex collection of microorganisms in the digestive tract that influence digestion, metabolism, immune function, and mental health, contributing to overall well-being.

Dose:

3600 mg/day of turkey tail mushroom polysaccharopeptide (3 x 1200 mg capsules) or 750 mg/day of amoxicillin (3 x 250 mg)  or placebo

Participants:

22 healthy volunteers with an average age of 31 years

Duration:

8 weeks 

Results:

In healthy individuals, the gut microbiome, which refers to the vast community of microorganisms living in the digestive tract, is incredibly diverse, meaning there is a vast array of different microorganisms. The diversity of the gut microbiome is essential for its proper functioning and its ability to support overall health.

In the study, antibiotic treatment caused substantial, unfavourable microbiome changes, most notably an increase in Escherichia (E. coli)/Shigella. These changes persisted to the end of the study, 42 days after antibiotic therapy ended. Recovery from this disruption to the microbiome can take several weeks.

Turkey tail treatment, on the other hand, was found to have the ability to modulate or change the composition of the microbiome in a way that promotes a healthier balance of microorganisms. By acting as a prebiotic (a type of dietary fibre that serves as food for beneficial gut bacteria), turkey tail polysaccharopeptide may positively influence the diversity and overall composition of the microbiome in the human gut.

Study 1

Study type: 

Animal study (mice)

Purpose:

To investigate the effect of turkey tail mycelium extract on exercise performance and physical fatigue in mice.

Dose:

615, 1230 or 3075 mg/kg/day of turkey tail mycelium extract or control (distilled water)

Duration:

4 weeks

Results:

Turkey tail mycelium had positive effects on exercise performance and fatigue in mice. There was a significant increase in forelimb grip strength in mice treated with turkey tail, compared to the control group. After engaging in swimming, mice treated with turkey tail exhibited lower blood levels of molecules called creatine kinase, serum lactate, and ammonia, in comparison to the control group. Lower levels of these molecules can indicate improved exercise performance, reduced muscle fatigue, and enhanced recovery. Higher levels of these molecules are often associated with fatigue and muscle fatigue. Further, turkey tail supplementation favourably lowered blood sugar levels and did not result in any kidney damage.

Overall, the findings suggest that turkey tail mycelium extract may have potential benefits in enhancing physical performance, reducing fatigue, and maintaining metabolic health.

How to use

  • image description

    ONE TO FOUR CAPSULES PER DAY

    Take one to four 500mg capsules daily, ideally in the morning.

  • image description

    With or Without FOOD

    Turkey Tail can be taken with food or on an empty stomach. However, the impact of food on supplement absorption is often unpredictable as different compounds within food can interact with the supplement in different ways.

    On the other hand, taking Turkey Tail with food will slow absorption, which can be beneficial if you want the effects to kick in slower or if you experience nausea when taking the supplement on an empty stomach.
