Organic Turkey Tail Mushroom Coffee

This is one of our newest creations here at Freshly Fermented. We are using the best quality fair trade coffee beans, and our own organic Turkey Tail mushroom powder. Our organic Turkey Tail powder is made from mushrooms we culture, grow, and harvest on site offering you the freshest Turkey Tail powder on the market. The majority of Turkey Tail powder/capsules on offer are manufactured from dehydrated mushrooms. While dehydrating mushrooms to preserve them is an age-old tactic, around 20-30% of the medicinal benefits are lost when compared to fresh mushrooms during the dehydrating process.

So what is Organic Turkey Tail mushroom and why would I need it?

Turkey Tail has been used around the world for centuries to treat various conditions. Perhaps the most impressive quality of the Turkey Tail mushroom is its ability to enhance the health of your immune system. Turkey Tail is high in immune-boosting polysaccharopeptides.

Turkey Tail is currently being highly researched due to its possible anti-cancer and anti tumour properties. One test-tube study found that PSK, the polysaccharopeptide found in Turkey Tail mushrooms, inhibited the growth and spread of human colon cancer cells.

What’s more, a certain type of polysaccharide found in Turkey Tail mushrooms called Coriolus versicolor glucan (CVG) may suppress certain tumors. A study in tumor-bearing mice found that treatment with 45.5 and 90.9 mg per pound (100 and 200 mg per kg) of body weight of CVG extracted from Turkey Tail mushrooms daily significantly reduced tumor size.

On top of Turkey Tails immune-boosting properties, it’s also high in polysaccharides and beta-glucans making it a fantastic gut-healthy prebiotic. With so many health benefits, it is no wonder that this mushroom is now being touted as a super mushroom. Why wouldn’t you want to include Organic Turkey Tail powder as part of your healthy lifestyle?

Why mushroom coffee?

There are lots of reasons why adaptogens such as medicinal mushrooms and coffee work amazingly well when paired together. The first is with adaptogenic coffee you get all the benefits of drinking normal coffee but also minimising any side effects (think jitters, racing heart and anxiety). Caffeine is a nootropic all on its own, it increases our alertness and attention by blocking our adenosine receptors (which make us sleepy). However, on the flip side, caffeine can also increase our cortisol levels (the stress hormone) and cause more jitters, racing heart and anxiety.

Adaptogens such as medicinal mushrooms may help balance the body’s cortisol levels, which allows us to enjoy our lovely coffee and get the benefits of caffeine without the nasty jitters etc! Mushroom coffee has been shown to be beneficial to people who are caffeine sensitive, which allows them to reap the benefits of caffeine without the above mentioned side effects.

Secondly, caffeine is absorbed very quickly into the blood system and we start feeling the benefits within about 15 mins of consumption. However, as we all may have experienced at some point in our lives, it can also lead to a “crash” (lack of energy, fatigue, drowsiness etc). Adaptogens such as medicinal mushrooms support a sustained level of energy, but without the “crash”.

IMPORTANT: We recommend you research the potential health benefits of Turkey Tail online and any possible contraindications. It is a good idea, as with any new supplement, to consult with your own medical practitioner if you are unsure about taking it, particularly if you are taking other medication or have an existing medical condition.
