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
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 (2).
Turkey Tail's PSP demonstrates prebiotic properties (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).
If you are taking any medications, please consult with your healthcare practitioner before beginning supplementation.
