Turkey tail is a mushroom (Trametes veriscolor) that grows on dead logs all around the world. It is renowned for its high beta-glucan content, which makes it one of the most important mushrooms to support normal immune function. Turkey tail has been trusted in Chinese medicine for centuries to help with a variety of health issues, reduce phlegm, clear dampness, increase energy, and boost the immune system. In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s called Yun Zhi. Its ability to support proper immune function is thanks to a special polysaccharide called beta-glucan.
Our double extraction process makes sure that the beneficial beta-glucans and triterpenoids in Turkey Tail are bioavailable and able to enhance immune function. Our mushrooms are grown in greenhouses on natural wood and substrates in filtered air. The whole mushroom is then double extracted and gently powdered, then tested for safety and high beta-glucan content.
It's important to note that most of the beta-glucan is found in the fruiting body of the mushroom. But it's expensive and time-consuming to grow mushrooms this way. But we don't do things the cheap and inexpensive way. In comparison, many "mushroom" products are mycelium, which is just the "roots" of the mushroom. To produce this product, mycelium is put in plastic bags filled with sorghum, oats, or rice, then put in a locker to grow. The mycelium is then ground up with the grains to make a high-starch product. Natural mushrooms are low in starch, averaging about 4% carbohydrate.
Our Turkey Tail mushroom is 3rd party tested to contain a minimum of 50% beta-glucan, which makes it one of the best choices for dogs needing natural immune support.
- Supports energy production - Helps maintain normal inflammatory responses and supports energy production at a cellular level.
- Supports healthy digestion - A healthy prebiotic, Turkey Tail produces important vitamins and fatty acids to help support digestive, urinary and respiratory health.
- Grown on woods, not grains! - Most Turkey Tail mushroom products are grown on oats or rice. Our organic mushrooms are grown on wood, the way nature intended.
Product Usage Directions
Give orally daily or as directed by your veterinarian.
Q : What is Turkey Tail?
A : Turkey tail is a cloud mushroom found in many regions around the globe. It blossoms on dead wood. Turkey tail is unique in that it can survive and thrive all year long. Most mushrooms grow only in the warmer seasons. Turkey tail can survive during hot and cold temperatures.
Turkey tail includes more immune supporting beta-glucans than any other mushroom. For this reason, we recommend the combination of Immunity and Turkey Tail for more compromised immune systems.
Q : How do I know if I have a real mushroom product?
A : Simple: ask for the beta-glucan content. Not the polysaccharide content, but the beta-glucan content. Beta-glucan is unique to mushrooms whereas polysaccharides and alpha-glucans are rich in the grains mycelium is grown in. We provide a third-party analysis with our mushrooms to show they're high in beta-glucans.
Q : How are your mushrooms grown?
A : Four Leaf Rover mushrooms are grown on wood. This process ensures your dog receives the benefits of the whole fruiting body and not just the mycelium.
Mushrooms are expensive to grow on their natural substrate, so most mushroom manufacturers, and many of our competitors, grow just the mycelium in bags of oats, rice, or other grains.
Mycelium lacks the high beta-glucan content found in the whole mushroom.
After harvest, our mushrooms are tested for heavy metals and pesticides, then double extracted for maximum quality and bioavailability.
Q : Are your mushrooms water extracted or dried?
A : Our mushrooms are both hot water and alcohol extracted. The fruiting bodies need this double extraction to break down the cell walls of the chitin.
Extraction pulls out the beta-glucans. The extract is then dried into a powder with all the essential mushroom elements intact.
Q : How do I know if your mushrooms are high quality?
A : Our mushrooms are certified organic, and free from heavy metals and pesticides. Every batch is tested for beta-glucan content to make sure the mushrooms are truly effective. No mycelium, no grains, and no starch ever.
Q : Can Turkey Tail be given with Immunity?
A : Immunity is a combination of 7 organic mushrooms that work synergistically, it includes Turkey tail. Chosen for their high beta-glucan content, the 7 mushrooms are best known for their ability to support the immune system.
For dogs with more compromised immune systems, we recommend adding our Turkey Tail product to Immunity to provide additional support.
Q : Is it ok to give my dogs mushrooms more than once a day?
A : Yes! You can give orally once or twice daily or as directed by your vet.
Q : Why are most mushroom products not really mushrooms?
A : Mushrooms contain a fruiting body (the part of the mushroom you'd recognize) and mycelium - the part that grows underground or inside the plant. Think of the mycelium as the roots of the mushroom. Nearly all mushroom products are mycelium, not the actual mushroom. They're grown in a lab on sterilized grains (such as rice, sorghum, or oats) and ground into a powder. If you're buying a mycelium product, you're not getting the beta-glucan rich content of the fruiting body. Beta-glucans are the active compounds in mushrooms. Fruiting bodies are full-spectrum and also offer more vitamins and minerals. Without them, you're not getting a real mushroom and your dog is not getting all of the health benefits.
