Benefits

Gut Health

Turkey Tail mushrooms are rich in prebiotics, a type of fiber that nourishes healthy bacteria in the gut. Improving gut health has a profound impact on overall well-being; facilitating improved absorption of nutrients, reducing the risk of digestive illnesses, and improving energy levels throughout the day.

Antioxidants

In response to stress and pollutants, our bodies produce what are called “free radicals”, unstable molecules which can damage cells and DNA in a process called “oxidation”. Turkey Tail is very rich in antioxidants that protect your cells from the oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

Immune Support 

The immune system is made up of innate responses (defend against and isolate threats in the body), and adaptive responses (attack specific pathogens to destroy them). Turkey Tail promotes the development of lymphocytes, the cells responsible for producing antibodies to fight off infection, and the cytokines which communicate with surrounding cells.

FAQs

What is Turkey Tail?

Turkey Tail is a multi-colored mushroom, named for its coloured stripes and ruffled edge. The mushroom is abundantly found in forests around the world, and has been a staple in Eastern and Native American medicine for many years.

When should I consume Turkey Tail?

Consuming prebiotic-rich Turkey Tail first thing in the morning, before a meal, may help facilitate improved absorption of nutrients to improve energy levels throughout the day.

What is a tincture?

A tincture is a concentrated liquid extract that's made by soaking mushrooms in a solvent—typically alcohol and/or hot water. This process unlocks the active ingredients in the mushrooms, leaving you with a potent liquid that can be dosed with a pipette. Tinctures offer a concentrated, immediate way to incorporate functional fungi like Turkey Tail into your routine.

 What does a Turkey Tail tincture taste like?

Turkey Tail has a mild, earthy taste. Our alcohol-based tincture has a more potent flavor, where our glycerin-based (alcohol free) tincture has a sweet taste (sugar-free).

How are Forage tinctures extracted?

We use industry-leading Ultrasonic Extraction technology to produce high potency extracts that feature all of the fungi’s health-promoting polysaccharides, triterpenes and vitamins. This method is the most efficient at breaking down mushroom cell walls to release 90-95% of active compounds contained in them, delivering a potent and bioavailable liquid extract.

Can I use more than one mushroom tincture at a time?

Yes! But we do recommend starting with one mushroom tincture at the recommended daily dosage for up to two weeks to see how your body responds before adding another tincture to your routine.
