As a matter of fact, PSK is approved for use in Japan as an additional therapy in standard cancer treatment.
There is a beautifully looking medicinal mushroom called TURKEY TAIL. This mushroom is found around the world, especially in wooded areas since they grow on tree trunks.
Because the formation of the mushrooms resembles the feathered tail of a turkey, it derived its name.
It’s medicinal benefits, though, is the reason why we need to talk about this one; and I encourage you to do some research on your own.
Two specific compounds are found in the turkey tail mushrooms:
- Polysaccharide-K (or PSK) and
- Polysaccharo-peptide (or PSP)
These have been researched to help treat some types of cancer. As a matter of fact, PSK is approved for use in Japan as an additional therapy in standard cancer treatment.
Proven benefits include the build-up of the immune system after chemo therapy, which also resulted in an extended lifespan. This was noted in people with stomach cancer, colorectal cancer, and lung cancer.
Well-known American mycologist Paul Stamets did an experiment on an 83-year old lady, back in 2009, with advanced, metastatic inflammatory breast cancer. While using chemotherapy with Taxol and Herceptin, she also began to take turkey tail mushroom supplement daily.
The turkey tail mushrooms work best in conjunction with a well thought-out cancer protocol. Use turkey tail for improving the immune system, or if you are fighting the dreaded C-word.
