Turkey Tail Mushroom History
Wild Trametes, commonly called Turkey Tail, grows naturally worldwide in all types of forests although it is primarily found on deciduous trees. Numerous strains of Trametes have been investigated, analyzed and chosen for their production of beta-glucans. In the 1980’s scientists in Japan and China utilized Trametes to develop new two new drugs: PSK and PSP. These drugs are manufactured using fermentation of mycelium in liquid culture. The process generates very unique protein-bound polysaccharides. These compounds are concentrated and refined into very powerful drugs, and some of the few mushroom-based products that have actually progressed through clinical trials and have been approved by government agencies for use.
Turkey Tail Mushroom Uses
Proudly Made in China
In 1996, CEO and Founder of Nammex, Jeff Chilton organized organic mushroom production in China. That initiative paid off and today all Nammex mushrooms are grown or wildcrafted deep in the mountains of China by our Certified Organic production partners.
Not All Medicinal Mushrooms Products are Created Equal
US lab-grown Trametes is mycelium grown on grain. Analysis has shown that US Trametes mycelium on grain has low levels of beta-glucan and very high levels of starch. Nammex only uses 100% organic fruiting bodies which are rigorously tested and guaranteed for active compounds.
