A common fungus found in broad-leaved woodlands all around the world is called Coriolus Versicolor. Due to its shape and vibrant color, which mimic the tail feathers of wild turkeys, it is frequently referred to as having a “turkey tail.” Turkey tail mushroom grows on stumps and the decomposing wood of trees. The PSP and PSK in turkey tail mushrooms might help slow cancer growth and boost the immune system. Coriolus Versicolor extract has been widely utilized for millennia as a natural medicine having potent antibacterial, antiviral, and anticancer activities in various regions of the world. Numerous amino acids, glycopeptides, and trace elements like calcium, germanium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and others can be found in it. It is one of the most beneficial fungus and has significant health benefits.
1. Boost immunity. Polysaccharide is Coriolus Versicolor’s primary active component. A good immune enhancer and immunological regulator, polysaccharides can improve immune cells’ performance and capacity for identification. Additionally, this polysaccharide can boost non-specific resistance to infection by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Shigella solani, Escherichia coli, and Staphylococcus aureus.
2. Liver protection. The natural polysaccharides found in Coriolus Versicolor can restore liver cells that have been damaged and provide a barrier on the surface of the human liver to lessen the effects of other toxic substances. The hepatitis B virus’s ability to replicate is somewhat inhibited by it.
3. Atherosclerotic plaque growth and lipid peroxidation damage can both be effectively prevented by Coriolus Versicolor polysaccharide. It can minimize the formation of atherosclerosis, and also has a therapeutic impact on the previously existing atherosclerosis.
4. Anti-cancer anti-cancer. The polysaccharide from Coriolus Versicolor is a potent anti-cancer agent. It can successfully prevent cancer cells from growing once they have entered the human body. It can also boost cell activity and lessen virus damage to cells.
Some patients receiving chemotherapy with polysaccharide krestin (PSK), a chemical derived from turkey tail mushrooms, have complained of nausea, vomiting, low white blood cell counts, and liver issues. However, it is not apparent if these adverse effects were brought on by PSK or the treatment.
Turkey tail mushroom contains polysaccharide krestin (PSK) and polysaccharide peptide (PSP). Some supplements contain just these chemicals, but the whole mushroom extract is also sometimes used.
* PSK has most often been used by adults in a dose of 3 grams by mouth daily for up to 36 months.
* Whole turkey tail mushroom extract has been used in a dose of 2.4 grams by mouth daily for up to 12 weeks.
