Coriolus versicolor, also known as Trametes versicolor and Polyporus versicolor, is a common polypore mushroom found throughout the world. Meaning "of several colors," versicolor mushrooms are commonly called "turkey tail" because its shape and multiple colors are similar to those of a wild turkey.
Numerous studies have demonstrated the antitumor, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial, and immunomodulatory activities of mushrooms. Specifically, mushrooms, such as Coriolus versicolor, increase the activity of lymphocytes – B-cells, T-cells, and especially natural killer (NK) cells. B-cells produce antibodies, whereas T-cells and NK cells destroy virally or bacterially infected cells and cells that have turned cancerous.
BIOMASS VERSUS EXTRACTS
Coriolus versicolor can generally be used in two forms: extract and biomass. Most Coriolus on the market is an extract, but current science increasingly suggests that biomass is superior because it also incorporates important immune-enhancing enzyme activity, such as superoxide dismutase, peroxidase, glucoamylase, and protease activities, which are not detected in the extracted forms of mushrooms.
This Coriolus mushroom powder is from mycelial biomass.
