Which Turkey Tail product should you choose? Objectively speaking, the only Turkey Tail products that are worth considering are those that will have a therapeutic effect. And the only ones that have a therapeutic effect are extracts , basically, because humans cannot digest raw or dried-and-powdered mushroom products. Only extracts contain bio-available compounds. For a detailed background you can check out this article.
It has all the answers and even compares a few products against each other. A core fact is this: all scientific research and all folk medicine uses extracted mushroom products, NEVER raw, dried/powdered mushrooms or tinctures. Yes - tinctures are also a bad choice - read this article. The next problem for you is how to distinguish the good from the bad : which mushroom products have been extracted?
It's not that hard, actually. If you've read the aforementioned link you already know.If not, here's a summary: only extracts can list the bio-active components on the supplement facts label , in non-extracted products these percentages cannot be guaranteed. Do not mean the product has therapeutic potential - those are marketing slogans. Only what is written in the supplement facts label is reliable. That label should at least give the percentage of polysaccharides, the main source of bio-active beta-glucans in all mushroom products. After all, logic says every producer will list the potency of his product on the label if he can, right?
It's the best marketing there is. With Turkey Tail, the main bio-active ingredients are beta-glucans, polypeptides and polyphenols.
(source of the anti-oxidant potency). We will send you our detailed Certificates of Analysis upon request. Our mushroom products are being analysed by independent third party labs annually to verify the quality, safety and potency of our products.How potent is this extract? It takes ± 35 kilo's of dried raw Turkey Tail to produce 1 kilo of PSP extract; so ORIVeDA PSP-50 is a 35:1 extract. Is no indication of therapeutic potency in itself.
But don't be mislead. These ratios only indicate a reduction in weight/volume. 35:1 concentrated' would be a more accurate description.Only percentages of active ingredients are a reliable indication of therapeutic potential. Mushrooms can contain up to 90% of water, so a dried mushroom is already reduced 10:1 in weight, if not more. A tough mushroom like Turkey Tail is easily reduced 50 % of its volume by powdering it.
But none of the bio-active compounds have been made bioavailable by doing this. There is also no way to verify this type of statement, and, as said, it reveals nothing about the bio-active therapeutic ingredients that are actually present. These statements are common on average quality products that cannot show the actual specifications. No detailed specs on the label.
Only genuine extracts can list and therefore guarantee the bio-active components on the supplement facts label , in non-extracted products these percentages can never be guaranteed. Do not be mislead by'10:1 extract' or something similar. Your product is not really cheap, is it?
