I have chosen a selection of videos that highlight the best of this health-promoting mushroom. First up is a video from a world leader in edible and medicinal mushroom research – Mycologist Paul Stamets. who shares the story of his own mother (have some tissues handy to watch this one!)


Quoted from an interview with Paul Stamets by TEDMED entitled “Can Mushrooms Help the Immune System Fight Cancer?”:

Mushrooms are constellations of hundreds of thousands of constituents. What single drug can benefit you by:

  • supporting and strengthening your immune system?
  • providing anti-inflammatory properties?
  • providing anti-oxidant properties?
  • restricting blood vessel growth feeding tumors (“anti-angiogenesis”)?
  • causing programmed cell death of cancer cells (“apoptosis”)?
  • providing antiviral effects?
  • restricting the growth of pathogenic bacteria?
  • assisting conventional anti-cancer drugs to work more effectively at lower doses?

And the answer is NONE!

Mushrooms provide all these benefits, and they are not drugs. These are ‘functional foods’ and/or ‘dietary ingredients,’ which help support the immune system on a fundamental, multi-factorial level. Nature is a numbers game.

We need all the support we can get as our immune systems and health are under assault from pollution, stress, contaminated food and age-related diseases as our lifespans increase.You may be lucky enough to find Turkey Tail Mushrooms growing locally.
