Loose Turkey Tail Tea


With a delicious natural flavor, this golden colored tea offers anti inflammatory properties as well as immune support. Turkey tail is potent in antioxidants, including flavonoids and phenols. These antioxidants promote immunity by reducing inflammation and stimulating the release of protective compounds. There are at least 35 unique phenolic (antioxidative) compounds in turkey tail water extracts, including the flavonoid antioxidant quercetin. In one study, quercetin demonstrated the ability to hinder the release of inflammatory enzymes lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase.

Turkey Tail is better known for its concentrations of PSK (Polysaccharide Krestin) and PSP (Polysaccharide Peptide). PSK has demonstrated anti-cancer abilities, and this is one of turkey tail's water-soluble compounds, which means that you are extracting PSK in a bioavailable form through a simple Turkey Tail tea. Studies have shown that PSP increases monocytes, a type of white blood cell that fights infection. PSP catalyzes the immune response by activating and hindering certain immune cells, as well as suppressing inflammation.
