More research has been conducted on Turkey Tail (Trametes Versicolor) than any other medicinal mushroom.  Turkey Tail is an important source of bioactive compounds that have pre-biotic, anti microbial, anti-oxidant, liver protective and immune regulating properties. Numerous studies show that taking Turkey Tail has immune-enhancing, cholesterol-regulating, and anti-ulcer effects on the body. Turkey Tail has positive effects on the gut-microbiome by reducing harmful bacteria like E.coli and Staphylococcus and increasing helpful bacteria like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.
