Coriolus versicolor, also known as turkey tail mushroom, is used in traditional Chinese medicine, primarily to support immune function and energy. Research indicates it promotes white blood cell number and function, including lymphocyte, macrophage and NK cells. It has also been shown to support healthy microflora balance. The main compounds believed to be responsible for these mechanisms of action are the polysaccharides, particularly the beta-glucan fraction. Pure Encapsulations’ coriolus extract is wild-crafted and organic, produced using only carefully controlled hot water to break apart the cell walls for concentration of the soluble beta-glucans.
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule, 1-2 times daily, between meals, or as directed by a health professional.
