Medicinal mushrooms are one of nature’s most wonderful superpowers. Turkey tail is one of the most powerful mushrooms nature has to offer that can even help with cancer prevention and treatment.
Turkey tail is a medicinal mushroom that's been used for centuries across various cultures. Named after their fall-like palette stripes similar to a turkey’s feathers, in Asian cultures, they symbolize longevity, health, spiritual attunement and infinity.
Turkey tail can support the treatment of various cancers as well as prevent it altogether by how it strengthens your body and enhances your immune system.
FDA-approved clinical trials are discovering more and more benefits of turkey tail extract on breast cancer patients receiving vaccine treatment and prostate cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. The way chemo works is by suppressing your immune system; while killing bad cancer cells, it also weakens your body, making it more susceptible to illness. Turkey tail can support your immune system, strengthen your body, help fight cancer cells, protect healthy cells and help the growth of new healthy cells.
Various other studies have found turkey tail to be beneficial complementing cancer treatment. A 2004 study has found that turkey tail can help with pancreatic cancer pain. According to a 2011 study, turkey tail can suppress prostate cancer growth. 2012 research has found that by boosting a woman’s immune system, turkey tail can aid breast cancer treatment.
The evidence is increasing and researchers seem to agree that adding turkey tail to complement cancer treatment can be beneficial.
You can find fresh turkey tail in ethnic and health food stores or by foraging. It is even easier to find turkey tail extracts, powders and tinctures in health food, vitamin and ethnic stores and online. Turkey tail is also a popular part of several superfood powers, such as Organifi Gold.
Organifi Gold is a high-quality, organic, plant-based superfood mix powered by turkey tail and many other superfoods, such as turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper and monk fruit.
