Turkey tail, or Coriolus versicolor, is a type of mushroom. It is used as medicine because it has polysaccharide peptide (PSP) and polysaccharide krestin (PSK).
The turkey tail mushroom grows on tree stumps and dead tree wood. The PSP and PSK in turkey tail mushrooms could help slow the growth of cancer and make the immune system stronger.
People use the turkey tail mushroom to help their bodies respond better to radiation and medicines for cancer. It is also used for muscle strength, fatigue, urinary tract infections (UTIs), and many other conditions for which there is no good scientific evidence.
A lot of research has been done on the effects of turkey tail mushrooms and turkey tail mushroom extracts on a wide range of diseases. In particular, extracts from turkey tail mushrooms seem to help many different parts of the body and fight a number of diseases, such as cancer.
◉ Boosts the immune system- The immune system seems to work better when turkey tail mushrooms and their extracts are taken in. Studies have shown that the mushroom extract PSP in particular makes several types of immune cells work better, which is important for fighting off infections.
◉ Helps fight some viruses- There is some evidence that PSP and PSK, which are extracts from turkey tail mushrooms, can help treat viral infections. In one study, it was found that when turkey tail mushroom extracts were put on cells, they could reduce the effects of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) by stopping molecules that the virus needs to work. Even though there haven't been any studies on people, turkey tail mushroom extracts could one day be used to treat viruses.
◉ Improves nervous system function- The extracts of turkey tail mushrooms may also help the brain work better. Damage to cells from oxidative stress could be a cause of neurological diseases like Alzheimer's. This cellular stress may be eased by a stronger immune system response, like the one caused by turkey tail mushrooms.
◉ Improves gut health- Some evidence suggests that turkey tail mushrooms may even help with gut health and the way the body uses energy in general. In one study, it was found that giving PSP along with a prebiotic helped increase the amount of good bacteria in gut samples.
