TURKEY TAIL MUSHROOM - TINCTURE
Turkey tail mushrooms, organic non-GMO vegetable glycerin and filtered water
Turkey tail mushrooms are the most common mushrooms in the world. They are one of the only variety of mycelium that is found on every continent.
They grow on many different kinds of hardwoods and conifers. I find them best picked from August to October in New England.
Three tips for proper identification:
1. has lines with shades of brown that look like a turkey tail,
2. They feel like velvet on top
3. underbelly is white with tiny pores.
They have been known to boost immunity. This tincture has been made with organic non-GMO vegetable glycerin and filtered water.
The double extraction method was used. After the mushrooms are extracted from the glycerin in about a month's time. The extract was strained and put aside. The mushrooms were then decocted (boiled then simmered) in water for 45 minutes. They were strained and then combined with the glycerin extraction. There are some medicinal qualities that will come out from the glycerin called triterpines. There are others that will only come out by being decocted in water called beta-glucans.
Take one dropper full twice a day mixed with 6 oz. of room temperature filtered water.
1 bottle = 2 fl. oz / 60 ml
