The highly adaptable Coriolus fungus grows around the world. It is a true saprobiont and performs a valuable service in nature: it decomposes dead wood and thus helps to integrate the nutrients back into the natural cycle. It can be found on the trunks of dead deciduous trees, and more rarely also on softwood.
This mushroom is primarily used as a dietary supplement. Valuable components make it increasingly important in this form. It has a long tradition in Asian dietetics. Particularly some specific polysaccharides, e.g. PSK and PSP, have been examined more closely in various studies.
Also known as:
Trametes versicolor, turkey tail

Specification extract (organic)
Specification powder (organic)
Pure extract, standardised for polysaccharides. Polysaccharides are extracted from the chitin cover in the mushrooms using hot water. Compared with the powder, the extract has around 10 times the concentration of polysaccharides.
Our powders are gained from the gently dried fruiting body of the mushroom by grinding it finely. The grain size < 0.125 mm is a sign of quality.
All raw materials are tested for 250 parameters and aromatic hydrocarbons. The corresponding lab analyses and certificates are supplied to you with every batch.
