This mushroom packs a punch when it comes to supporting your dog’s immune system, especially when it comes to cancer.

Turkey tail (Trametes versicolor, also referred to as Coriolus versicolor) is a mushroom that grows on dead logs all around the world. Its name comes from the coloured rings on the mushroom which look a bit like the pattern of turkey tail feathering. Like many of the medicinal mushrooms, we are now seeing a lot of interest in the health benefits of using mushrooms for both ourselves and our pets and this mushroom is NO exception.

The active ingredients in Turkey tail are known as beta glucans- in this case, 2 specific ones known as Polysaccharide-K (PSK) and Polysaccharide-P (PSP). Think of these beta glucans as giving the cells of this fungus its strength and structure. And while beta glucans help support the mushroom itself, in terms of their impact on your dog’s immune health, they are definitely worth considering. Because of the way that these beta glucans can affect your dogs immune system they can help balance it whether it is over or underactive. This is known as IMMUNE MODULATION. For example, if your pet has been suffering from some type of chronic infection or lowered immune state, then Turkey tail can provide a much needed boost to the immune system. But on the other hand, if your dog is currently dealing with some type of autoimmune disease where the immune system is overactive and attacking the body, turkey tail can dampen down this response and help regulate it to bring about more balance.

In regards to CANCER, these two active ingredients, along with a third component called ergosterol, (which has anti-tumour and antioxidative properties) may potentially slow the spread of various types of cancer as well as slowing the progression in general. In addition, if your dog is currently undergoing any type of chemotherapy, Turkey tail can actually make the treatment more effective and lessen the side effects due to the supportive nature of beta glucans on your dogs immune cells. And as a stand alone treatment it can be often as effective as chemotherapy without many of the unpleasant side effects.

Other benefits include:

These mushrooms are prebiotic which means that they feed the probiotics or good bacteria in your dogs gut. If you don’t feed those probiotics in your dog's gut (or your own), they die. And since most of your dog’s (and your own) immune system calls the gut home, we need to keep it healthy to increase its ability to fight off harmful bacteria and viruses that could cause trouble.

Antioxidants support heart and liver health including regulating blood pressure.

Helps fight viruses, bacterial and fungal infections (avoid giving if your dog has a known mushroom allergy).
