Benefits of Turkey Tail
Turkey Tail has been trusted in Chinese medicine to help with a variety of health issues for centuries. Its ability to support proper immune function is thanks to a special polysaccharide called beta-glucan.
Our Turkey Tail mushroom is 3rd party tested to contain a minimum of 50% beta-glucan, which makes it one of the best choices for dogs needing natural immune support.
Our double extraction process makes sure that the beneficial beta-glucans and triterpenoids in Turkey Tail are bioavailable and able to enhance immune function.
Our mushrooms are grown in greenhouses on natural wood and substrates in filtered air. The whole mushroom is then double extracted and gently powdered, then tested for safety and high beta-glucan content.
It's important to note that most of the beta-glucan is found in the fruiting body of the mushroom. But it's expensive and time consuming to grow mushrooms this way. But we don't do things the cheap and inexpensive way.
In comparison, many "mushroom" products are mycelium, which is just the "roots" of the mushroom. To produce this product, mycelium is put in plastic bags filled with sorghum, oats or rice, then put in a locker to grow. The mycelium is then ground up with the grains to make a high-starch product. Natural mushrooms are low in starch, averaging about 4% carbohydrate.
The FDA doesn't allow mycelium products to say MUSHROOM on the package, but the market is saturated with these cheap mushroom alternatives.
So how can you tell the difference between real mushrooms and the other guy (mycelium)?
Simply look or ask for the beta-glucan content. If the product doesn't provide the beta-glucan content (or if it's low), you can be fairly certain the product is mycelium and not mushrooms. And don't fall for a high polysaccharide content ... anything with a lot of starch will be high in polysaccharides.
You can feel good about giving your dog our Turkey Tail. It's 3rd party tested for a high beta-glucan content and for safety, so your dog gets the unique mushroom benefits he needs.
