Turkey tail has been used in traditional medicine for centuries, particularly in Chinese and Japanese traditional practices. It is often consumed in the form of teas, extracts, or supplements.

1. Immune System Support: Turkey tail contains polysaccharopeptides, which may help stimulate the immune system and support overall immune function. This has led to its investigation in certain immune-related conditions and diseases.

2. Antioxidant Properties: The mushroom is rich in antioxidants, such as phenols and flavonoids, which can help neutralize harmful free radicals in the body and protect cells from oxidative stress.

3. Cancer Support: Some studies have explored the potential of turkey tail extract in supporting cancer patients, particularly in combination with conventional cancer treatments. The polysaccharides in turkey tail may help boost the immune response against cancer cells.

4. Digestive Health: Turkey tail contains prebiotics, which are beneficial for gut health. Prebiotics serve as food for probiotics, the beneficial bacteria in the gut, promoting a healthy balance of the gut microbiome.

5. Antimicrobial Properties: Turkey tail mushrooms may have antimicrobial properties, potentially helping to combat certain types of bacteria and viruses.

6. Liver Health: Some animal studies suggest that turkey tail extract may have a positive impact on liver health by promoting liver function and reducing oxidative damage.
