Organic Turkey Tail
Turkey tail is a mushroom that grows on dead logs all around the world. Its Latin name is Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor. Versicolor means of many colors. And that’s because turkey tail has colored rings that look a lot like the tail of a turkey. In Japan, turkey tail is called kawaratake, which means cloud mushroom. There are quite a few strains of Trametes, but turkey tail, in particular, is of interest to scientists and herbalists. Turkey tail has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to reduce phlegm, clear dampness, increase energy and boost the immune system. In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s called Yun Zhi.

What is Turkey Tail Mushroom?
The Coriolus Versicolor or Trametes Versicolor is part of the Polyporaceae family in the Fungi kingdom. This cloud mushroom grows around the world on dead wood surfaces. Unlike other mushrooms that usually only appear in warmer seasons, the Coriolus Versicolor can survive in winter and thrives in moderate to warm temperatures.
What is Turkey Tail Mushroom Good for?
Turkey Tail Mushrooms offer an abundance of health benefits, according to research. From fighting immune deficiencies, supporting immune function, providing relief from oxidating stress, enriching antioxidants, and promoting beneficial bacteria in the gut, these little shrooms are indeed a wonder of nature.
Why are most mushroom products not really mushrooms?
Mushrooms contain a fruiting body (the part of the mushroom you’d recognize) and mycelium, the part that grows underground or inside the plant. Think of the mycelium as the roots of the mushroom. Nearly all mushroom products are mycelium, not the actual mushroom. They’re grown in a lab on sterilized grains (such as rice, sorghum or oats) and ground into a powder.
If you’re buying a mycelium product, you’re not getting the beta-glucan rich content of the fruiting body. Beta-glucans are the active compounds in mushrooms. Fruiting bodies are full spectrum and also offer more vitamins and minerals. You’re not getting a real mushroom and your dog is not getting all of the health benefits.
How are Four Leaf Rover mushrooms grown?
Four Leaf Rover’s mushrooms are grown on wood, just as they would grow in nature. This guarantees the medicinal compounds will be in the mushrooms. They’re grown in greenhouses with a constant flow of fresh air and water, along with natural sunlight. After harvesting, every mushroom is tested for chemicals or contamination.
Why are your mushrooms water extracted and not dried?
Fruiting bodies require hot water extraction to break down the chitin in the cell walls. Dogs and humans lack the digestive enzyme to break down chitin, so extraction is necessary to get all the nutrients from the fruiting body. Extraction pulls out the beta-glucans. The extraction is then purified and dried into a powder with all the beneficial mushroom parts intact.
How can I be sure your mushrooms are high quality?
Every batch of mushrooms is checked for bacteria, heavy metals, and pesticides. The mushroom extracts are then tested for beta-glucan content to make sure the mushrooms are truly medicinal. Our mushrooms are certified organic, and free from heavy metals and pesticides. No mycelium, no grains, and no starch ever.
Can I give my dog mushrooms more than once a day?
If your dog doesn’t have any health challenges, once a day should be enough. But if your dog is fighting illness, you can give mushrooms twice daily.
