THE BENEFITS OF TURKEY TAIL MUSHROOM
The bioactive compounds within the Turkey Tail Mushroom that promote beneficial physiological activities are beta-glucans, mainly polysaccharopeptide (PSP) and Polysaccharide Krestin (PSK). They help to induce the production and activity of immune cells known as cytokines, which are key for cell signalling during an immune response, this in turn may help our body to more efficiently respond to infection .
PSP is not readily digestible by human intestinal enzymes, however it is thought to enhance the colonisation of good bacteria within the gut, giving the mushroom prebiotic components [1, 2].
Further, PSK as well as an enzyme called Laccase, which is produced by the mushroom, have potent antioxidative activities .
