Turkey Tail Mushroom
Medicinal mushrooms are becoming more common in health and wellness circles. The growth of the medicinal market is so substantial that brands that specialise in CBD have ventured into making mushroom oils that allow users to enjoy the benefits of the mushrooms right out of the tincture.
Marley One is the first Cannabis brand to make mushroom oil tinctures packed with the benefits and goodness of medicinal mushrooms, among other natural herbs and plants.
The One Harmony range features a popular type of medicinal mushroom called Trametes Versicolor, commonly known as Turkey Tail.
What is the Turkey Tail Mushroom?
The turkey tail mushroom grows on dead hardwood trees worldwide. The mushroom gets its name from its characteristic colour and appearance that resembles the tail of a turkey. It has distinctive stripes of brown, grey, white and tan.
Not only does the mushroom have a stunning appearance, but it is also thought to have immense health benefits. So much so that it is been approved as a pharmaceutical-grade medicine in Japan, where it has been used in the treatment of cancer for over 30 years.
Benefits of Turkey Tail Mushroom
Turkey tail mushrooms are packed with vast health benefits thanks to their diverse nutritional composition.
Turkey tail mushrooms are rich in various polysaccharides, particularly PSP and PSK, which are critical in supporting the immunological barrier that protects the immune system against diseases.
Packed with antioxidants
Turkey tail mushrooms are packed with antioxidants that help to reduce damage caused by excessive oxidative stress. Turkey tail mushrooms have an impressive array of antioxidants that include phenols and flavonoids that help promote the immune system, reduce inflammation and stimulate the release of protective compounds in the body.
Enhanced gut health
Keeping your gut perfectly balanced is critical in maintaining a strong immune system. Turkey tail mushrooms contain prebiotics that helps nourish the good bacteria in your gut while suppressing the harmful bacteria.
Are There Potential Side Effects of Using Turkey Tail Mushrooms?
Turkey tail mushrooms are not certified by most national regulatory bodies, raising questions among users who are trying them for the first time. However, mushrooms have been consumed as a food and supplement for years without any problems.
Turkey tails are relatively safe to consume. One study found that even at outrageously high doses, the mushrooms didn't have any adverse effects in mice.
However, some mild reactions have been associated with consuming turkey tail mushrooms, although on very rare occasions and in instances where the mushrooms have been consumed in large quantities. These reactions include;
Will Turkey Tail Mushrooms Make Me High?
Unlike some mushroom varieties like Psilocybin mushrooms which have psychedelic properties, turkey tail mushrooms are not psychoactive. You will not get high from using the mushrooms. Your cognitive functions will not be affected in any way.
Marley One has created a unique blend of mushroom oil that features turkey tail and other natural ingredients are known for their health benefits, including echinacea, astragalus and sunflower lecithin, for a power-packed tincture for mushroom goodness that doesn't require preparation.
