Time-tested Turkey Tail
Mushrooms are unlike anything else in the plant or animal kingdom; they contain unique compounds different from the nutrients found in fruits or vegetables. We’ve harnessed organic turkey tail — traditionally known as a symbol of longevity and health in Japanese culture — to bring you its unique benefits for immune system defense and balance.*
The Only USDA Certified Organic Mushroom Tablets
We didn’t second-guess choosing organic. Why? Because nearly 20 percent of the 17,000+ pesticides in use today are known as systemic pesticides—and are actually taken up inside the plant. Mushrooms are incredibly porous and susceptible to soaking up their environment (the good and the bad). Organically grown mushrooms are typically more resilient and defense-supporting than non-organic. That’s why it’s so important to choose organic mushrooms grown in nourishing, high-quality soil: no toxic pesticides, herbicides or processing agents allowed.

How are mushrooms classified?
Although most people think of mushrooms as vegetables, they’re in fact a type of beneficial fungi. The term “mushroom” refers to any macrofungus with a distinctive fruiting body large enough to be seen with the naked eye and picked by hand. As of now, mushrooms constitute at least 14,000 different plant species.
Why do you use mushroom extracts?
While we recognize the benefits of whole mushrooms, extracts are a more potent source of beneficial compounds compared to an equal amount of mushroom mycelium. That allows us to pack 1,000mg of extract into just one daily tablet, so you’re getting all the superfood benefits in an easy-to-take way.
What is TCM?
The Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) is a system of wellness that dates back more than 2,000 years and is still practiced today. It works on the belief that Qi (which loosely translates to “vital energy” and is pronounced “chee”) is essential for overall health. TCM principles adhere to the idea that proper Qi is needed to keep all systems in balance. This ties into the concept of yin and yang, defined as opposing but complementary energies. According to TCM, like Qi, yin and yang negatively affect your health when they’re out of balance. That being said, a primary goal of TCM involves balancing their equalizing relationship. One of the ways to do that involves using specific superfoods and herbs. TCM superfoods and superherbs aim to support the overall health of the systems of the body. TCM aims to create balance in the body as a whole to promote wellness and Qi. When the yin and yang aspects of Qi are harmonized and balanced out, a person typically experiences wellbeing.
How is TCM different than Ayurveda?
Both TCM and Ayurveda approach the body in a balancing way. They both address energy flow, circulation and balance in the body. For instance, that energy is referred to as Qi in TCM and prana in Ayurveda.
While there is overlap in some of the botanicals used in both TCM and Ayurveda, each tradition also utilizes specific plants and foods. Ayurveda was born out of India, so it often recommends traditional herbs and foods widely available in that region. TCM often focuses on botanicals and fungi more readily available in China. While TCM may utilize more animal products, Ayurveda does tend to recommend more dairy, like ghee, compared to TCM.
In essence, TCM and Ayurveda are different ways to approach wellness and balance from different regions of the world.
