Wild Turkey TailR197.00
Wild Turkey Tail
Turkey Tail has already been used in many commercial anti-cancer medicines, in particular in “Krestin”, an approved anti-cancer drug in Asia and has already proven to be very beneficial in treating breast cancer. PSK reduces cancer metastasis (cancer spreading to other parts of the body) and also stimulates interleukin-1 production in human cells (part of the body’s natural defense mechanism against cancerous cells).
PSK is also a very effective scavenger of free-radical oxidizing compounds through its production of manganese superoxide dismutase (a super anti-oxidant) so it offers excellent support in protecting our cells from free radical oxidative stress.
PSK has also been found to be effective against E coli and Staphylococcus aureus infections as well as against the Candida albicans fungus.
PSP Trametes versicolor or “Turkey Tail” mushroom Turkey Tail also contains PSP – polysaccharopeptide – that has possible use as a powerful antiviral agent against HIV and also increases the production of interferon, interleukin-2 and T-cells – all part of the body’s immune defenses. Polysaccharopeptides also have very strong immunomodulating properties (adjusting the immune system either up or down in order to balance it according to its needs). Research is underway, but it is looking very hopeful that PSP is extremely effective in destroying prostate cancer stem cells. Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Tumour.
Turkey Tail is loaded with antioxidants and as well as being anti-viral, also boasts powerful antibacterial and anti-tumour properties. It is also one of the most effective natural substances for destroying harmful chemical toxins both in the human body and the natural environment.
Turkey Tail and Chemotherapy
Turkey Tail is also a very effective chemo-protective agent in the sense that even when a person is undergoing chemotherapy, Turkey Tail can support the destruction of malignant cells while shielding the healthy cells from the damaging effects of the treatment – another function that is attributed to PSK. So in this way Turkey Tail has become very well known for offering a natural, multifaceted healing approach to breast, lung & colon cancer, sarcoma, carcinoma and leukaemia.
Turkey Tail in Traditional Chinese Medicine Turkey Tail is beneficial for infections and inflammation of the upper respiratory tract; infections and irritations of the digestive tract, infections of the urinary tract, lung diseases, chronic congestion and general lack of energy/not feeling well. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Turkey Tail is used to clear phlegm and excessive dampness from the body and to increase life force. It is also considered to be a powerful liver tonic.
Turkey Tail and Urinary Tract Infections
As mentioned above, Turkey Tail is very effective at treating urinary tract infections (UTI’s). We have had an excellent testimonial from someone who had been suffering from a chronic UTI for 3 months and our Turkey Tail tincture cleared it up within 2 days! The lady in question went back to her doctor after this – who found absolutely no trace of the infection remaining.
Turkey Tail and HPV
There is now evidence of Turkey Tail being used to treat the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – the pre-cursor to cervical cancer. Turkey Tail – Woman’s Best Friend! With Turkey Tail’s effectiveness at treating breast cancer, UTI’s and HPV – it really is a Woman’s Best Friend! A wonderful ally to add to your medicine cabinet, ladies Wild-Harvested Dual Extraction Tinctures.
There are an enormity of other health benefits to consider when consuming Turkey Tail and it can be consumed on a regular basis even if there is no evidence of disease. It is a biological response modifier and can support the healthy, balanced functioning of many levels of our being.
Wild Turkey Tail is by far the most potent variety, and our dual extraction tincture (alcohol & hot water) provides the full spectrum of its beneficial nutrients and active constituents. Turkey Tail is easy to identify in the wild and is one of the most prolific mushrooms on the planet (particularly in the northern hemisphere). Turkey Tail varies in colour on top of the mushroom but is uniformly white underneath. They grow in clusters on decaying trees and, in our experience at least, seem to prefer branches rather than trunks of trees.
Superhero Immune Boosting Tea MixR245.00
Superhero Immune Boosting Tea Mix
Our Superhero Immune-Boosting Tea Mix is made up of 4 different types of medicinal mushrooms, carefully blended with a deliciously sweet mixture of goji berries, licorice root and vanilla pods.
The 4 medicinal mushrooms we have included are the following:-
Ancient Reishi, Artist’s Conk or Ganoderma applanatum – a powerful antibiotic, antioxidant and immune-modulating mushroom that has been shown to have 100% tumour inhibitory action on certain types of cancer. They are effective against a wide range of bacteria including E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Increases spleen cell antibody activity. Ancient Reishi has been shown to be beneficial for hepatitis and for hyperglycemia. These mushrooms can grow for decades absorbing years of forest wisdom and potency and reaching a huge size. Their longevity is a great indication of their incredibly high antibacterial properties – they can resist breaking down for many years. White ergosterol on the back of the mushroom makes great artist’s canvas and can be inscribed upon using finger or sharpened stick – hence the name “Artist’s Conk”. Ancient Reishi has a sweet, smoky flavour and is a particular delicacy of gorillas living in Central Africa (Hint – we can do far worse than to mimic apes when it comes to our food choices!)
Turkey Tail or Trametes versicolor – contains PSK and PSP – both cancer-fighting polysaccharides that have proven to be extremely successful against breast and prostate cancers. Turkey Tail, as with other medicinal mushrooms, also contain Beta glucans, the long-chain polysaccharides that super-boost immunity. They do this by mimicking bacteria – and this in turn kick-starts our immune systems into “super-active” mode.
Pycnoporus cinnabarinus or “Cinnabar polypore” – also immune-boosting, but also very helpful in addressing circulation issues.
Inonotus obliquus or “Chaga”, King of the Medicinal Mushrooms – is a super- powerful tonic herb. It only grows north of the Arctic circle, mainly on birch trees – from which it concentrates the betulin, betulinic acid and lupeol, the medicinal components of birch. Chaga is an incredibly powerful antioxidant (and is in fact the highest source of the super-antioxidant Superoxide Dismutase) , is anti-cancer, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating, It also detoxes the liver and lowers bad cholesterol levels, as well as offering a myriad of other health benefits. As with all the other mushrooms in our tea mix, the chaga is also wild-harvested.
All of these mushrooms contain long-chain sugars or polysaccharides and it is these polysaccharides that provide the powerful immune system boost in our bodies, providing us with protection against both acute and chronic disease. Each packet of Superhero Tea Mix can be boiled up twice before it starts to lose flavour and colour. That means that each packet of tea makes a total of at least 32 cups of awesome, super-delicious, health-giving tea!
Harmonising Herbs In Chinese tonic herbalism, goji berries are added for their polysaccharide content which boosts immunity. They also aid digestion and increase the major youthening human growth hormone (HGH) in the body. Colour label- tea mix-in situWe have also added vanilla pods and powder to our Tea Mix, which impart a deliciously sweet, fragrant taste so that you end up with a tea that is a delight to your taste buds (and doesn’t taste “mushroomy” at all!) Vanilla is also a mood-enhancer. Licorice root is added for its harmonising effect on the tea – it brings all the flavours together. Not only that but licorice has many pharmocological actions – including anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, antibacterial and anti-cancer effects. It helps regulate estrogen/progesterone ratios in women and also helps replenish adrenal function, so it is a highly recommended herb for fatigue. (Special note – if you suffer from high blood pressure, licorice can exacerbate this condition. In this case you may choose not to put the whole piece of licorice root in your tea and only use some of it instead – or even take it out altogether. On the other hand, if you suffer from low blood pressure this can help correct and balance the problem).
Why Wild and Organic?
All mushrooms, except for the chaga, are wild-harvested in the Knysna Forest. The chaga is wild-harvested (on order, for the freshest mushrooms possible) in Russia and all the other ingredients are certified organic. Both wild-harvested and organic plants require greater natural protection against predators, resulting in them producing far more of the compounds that we are then able to enjoy as medicine. They are also a lot more mineral-rich. Wild-grown plants are also infused with the energies of the natural environment they have grown in – and this wild, natural energy automatically gets transferred to us when we take these plants into our bodies, making us stronger and more in touch with our wild, natural heritage.
This highly prized tonic mushroom, referred to as ‘the King of the Medicinal Mushrooms’ has long been used in traditional herbalism throughout the colder regions of Northern Asia and Europe. Soaring Free Superfoods’ antioxidant-rich Chaga Powder is wild harvested in the old forests of Latvia. Hand collected by climbing wild Birch trees and removing the mushroom fruiting bodies, they are then carefully dried and ground into a powder.
