Turkey Tail Product Details

Turkey Tail Mushroom (Trametes Versicolor, also known as Coriolus Mushroom) extract is an adaptogen that promotes general well-being and may boost the immune system.  It is a mushroom that has 2 forms in use today:   extract of the fruiting bodies or utilized whole (including the mycelia and primordia) (1).

Pure Nootropics provides high quality mushroom extract, using only 100% organic whole fruiting bodies which are rigorously tested and guaranteed pure.

Turkey Tail Mushroom Benefits

  • Classified as an immunostimulant, it may boost the immune system 
  • Promotes antioxidant activity 
  • Supports healthy gut bacteria 

Turkey Tail Mushroom Mode of Action

Turkey Tail Mushroom contains naturally occurring polysaccharides.  The polysaccharide peptide (PSP) and polysaccharide krestin (PSK) are the two active compounds in the mushroom.  Both PSP and PSK modify biological responses and stimulate immune pathways that impact T-cell proliferation, gamma-interferon production and interleukin-2 production (2).

Research conducted with animals has suggested that the PSK in Turkey Tail Mushroom enhances glutathione peroxidase activity and contributes to its antioxidant activity (3).Mushrooms, including Turkey Tail, have been studied and their antioxidant activity is linked to their polysaccharide contents in vitro (4).

Turkey Tail’s PSP demonstrates prebiotic properties in vitro clinical studies on human gastric fluid from volunteers whose gut microbiome were compromised by the use of antibiotics (5).  The polysaccharides can pass through the stomach and reach the colon unchanged and may encourage the growth of beneficial gut bacteria, specifically lactobacilli such as L. acidophilus and L. rhamnosus (6).

Turkey Tail Mushroom Dosage

Pure Nootropics’ Turkey Tail Mushroom Extract Powder provides 1000 mg per (2) level 1.0 cc scoops (provided with purchase).  Suggested use is one serving by mouth daily, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner. (Due to variations in powder density, scoop measurements may fluctuate.  We suggest purchasing a scale for measuring accurately. A scale allows users to better track progress and response to each dose. Scales are available for purchase through Pure Nootropics).

Turkey Tail Side Effects and Toxicity

Turkey Tail Mushroom consumed orally is well tolerated. When used orally and appropriately, it is considered likely safe. No adverse events have been reported for the Coriolus/Trametes versicolor mushroom itself; however, the isolated polysaccharide extract PSK may cause mild side effects (7).  Pure Nootropics uses the extract of the whole fruiting body of the mushroom and it is a different extraction process than the individually isolated PSK extract, so side effects are rare.

Toxicity for the extract of the fruiting bodies of Coriolus/Trametes Versicolor suggests that the No Observed Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) is 5000 mg/kg for a duration of 28 days (7). If you are taking any medications, always consult with you Healthcare Practitioner before beginning any new supplement.

We are living in an age where supporting the gut microbiome is all the rage.* In modern health blogs, we often read about how much the gut influences our overall health and its deep connection to our brain and immune system. Probiotics, prebiotics, and fermented foods and drinks (such as kombucha and kefir) have become popular for their gut-supporting qualities and are now more available to the public. 

Did you know that mushrooms are now being highlighted for their prebiotic qualities? Read on to find out how Turkey Tail mushrooms support the gut microbiome.*


The gut microbiome consists of microorganisms, which are mostly “good bugs” living in the gastrointestinal tract. These microorganisms help us digest what we eat, as well as absorb and synthesize nutrients. Gut health impacts many of our bodies’ important functions, such as metabolism, weight, and immune regulation, as well as brain activity and mood.

Based on one’s environments and habits, each person’s gut looks slightly different — yours is as unique to you as your fingerprint. Your gut naturally contains diverse bacteria.

Want to promote a healthy and naturally diverse gut microbiome?* Integrate healthy habits — eat a nourishing and balanced diet, exercise regularly, support the stress response, maintain consistent sleep, and support the immune system naturally.* 


Turkey Tail mushrooms (Trametes versicolor) can be found in the wild with bands of colors such as orange, blue, white, and tan. These mushrooms earned their name because they resemble the tail of a turkey. In Latin, Trametes means “one who is thin,” and versicolor means “variously colored.” 

This mushroom has long been used in Japanese folk herbalism to regulate healthy cellular growth. In Traditional Chinese modalities, Turkey Tail is used to support lung health as well as liver health.*

Back in 1965, a chemical engineer in Japan observed his neighbor taking a traditional herbal preparation. After several months of learning about the neighbor and his traditional approach to health, the engineer convinced his colleagues to examine the mushrooms — and soon PSK was born. PSK, or polysaccharide-K, is 1-3 beta-glucan, a polysaccharide that supports the immune system.* PSK is now the chief ingredient in Krestin, which is used in Japan. Chinese researchers were then inspired to develop Polysaccharide Peptide (PSP), another type of polysaccharopeptide extract found in this mushroom and used for similar purposes. [2]

Simply put, prebiotics are food for probiotics. These fermented ingredients (essentially dietary fiber) promote gut health by supporting various functions of your gastrointestinal microbiota. Turkey Tail contains prebiotic fiber. 

In one study looking at the gut microbiome, researchers found that Turkey Tail mushroom benefits the gut microbiome by acting as a prebiotic and promoting diversity in the gut.*   PSK has been shown to provide prebiotic support to gut health as well. 

Turkey tail mushrooms are multicolored fungi that grow on tree trunks and fallen trees in wooded areas. They are plentiful in various parts of the world, including the United States.

These mushrooms have a disc-like shape and varying colors. Their overall appearance may resemble that of a turkey’s tail.

For centuries, people have used these mushrooms — also known as Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor — as a health supplement. In traditional Chinese medicine, people use turkey tail extract (Yun zhi) as a treatment for respiratory conditions.
