Found all around the globe, turkey tail mushroom is one of the most widely studied fungi out there. Its quirky name is a nod to its unique appearance, with rings of earthy colours resembling the tail feathers of a turkey.
Turkey tail is rich in antioxidants and bioactive compounds, leading to exciting research that suggests it may reduce inflammation, improve digestion and support immunity. So much so, in eastern countries like Japan and China, they’ve been using turkey tail mushroom in combination with traditional cancer medicine for over 30 years.

What is hot water extraction?
When we eat mushrooms in their raw form, the medicinal compounds are hard for the body to digest. By putting mushrooms through a hot water extraction process, it breaks down their nutrients making them more available for your body to use. We wrote an article about it here: mushroom powder vs extract.
What is myceliated brown rice and why is it in my Turkey Tail Mushroom Powder?
If we liken mushrooms to plants, mycelium is like the underground root system (and the mushroom itself is like the flower). So, when mushrooms are grown in a farming environment, this root system needs something to feed on to give the mushroom nutrients (enter, brown rice). We choose to use brown rice as new research suggests that the combination of mycelium, brown rice and mushroom fruit body fruit body have greater medicinal benefits. The fermented brown rice is also loaded with goodness. So much so, we wrote a whole article on it: the health benefits of mycelium.
Are there any side effects of turkey tail mushroom?
Turkey tail is considered a safe mushroom to use in your diet with side effects being rare and minor. But as with anything, it’s best to consult your doctor or medical practitioner before incorporating turkey tail into your diet.

I started my dog on the turkey tail mushroom powder once she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a highly aggressive bone cancer. After much research, and recommendations by vets in America, I thought it couldn't hurt, as it's a natural product. My girl had a life expectancy of roughly a year post amputation and chemotherapy. She has now gone 18 months post amputation and a year post chemo, and is still all clear! I'm not stopping the powder anytime soon!
Thanks for the quick delivery
