The Turkey Tail mushroom that is used to make this extraction is the actual fruiting body, no mycelium or growing medium, processed by hot water extraction.
Wild Trametes, commonly called Turkey Tail, grows naturally worldwide in all types of forests although it is primarily found on deciduous trees. Numerous strains of Trametes have been investigated, analyzed and chosen for their production of beta-glucans.
In the 1980’s scientists in Japan and China utilized Trametes to develop new two new drugs: PSK and PSP. These drugs are manufactured using fermentation of mycelium in liquid culture. The process generates very unique protein-bound polysaccharides. These compounds are concentrated and refined into very powerful drugs in Japan and China where some of the mushroom-based products were run through clinical trials and have been approved by their government agencies for use.

Proudly Made in China
In 1996, CEO and Founder of Nammex, Jeff Chilton organized organic mushroom production in China. That initiative paid off and today all our mushroom extracts are grown or wildcrafted deep in the mountains of China by Certified Organic production partners. Learn more about our growers in China.
An important note is that any products made in the USA are typically not made from mushrooms but mycelium, the mushrooms root system, grown on grains.
The grain cannot be separated from the mycelium so it ends up being a significant portion of these types of products. Independent analysis has shown that due to this high amount of grain, they contain very little of the active compounds found in the research. Read your supplements panel very closely and look for the words “mycelium”, “myceliated brown rice”, “mycelial biomass”, “full spectrum”, “whole life cycle” or other derivatives of mycelium. It is not mushroom, so see “What is mycelium on grain” for more details.
This is why our mushroom extracts are specifically tested for beta-glucans and starch, to show the potency of our products and to show that we have no added fillers like grain. Just 100% mushrooms.
