This medicinal mushroom has a number of unique properties that make it worth finding out more about it. In this article, we'd like to tell you more about what Turkey Tail is and how to use it.

What is Turkey Tail?

Turkey Tail is a unique mushroom with medicinal properties. In the Netherlands, it is better known as the Elfenbankje. The name literally means 'fairy bench'. This is due to its unique shape, which resembles the fan-shaped feather tail of a turkey. This magical mushroom is native to North America and Asia, where you can find it mainly on trunks and branches of trees. The fungus is in fact a saprophyte, meaning it feeds on dead plant materials. It has a brownish-red color and is often used as an herbal medicine. It has a number of unique properties that make it suitable for medicinal purposes.


The mushroom has been used in traditional Chinese and Korean medicine since ancient times. It was mainly used to improve digestion and relieve gastrointestinal complaints. It was also used to increase resistance and boost the immune system. Traditionally, the mushroom was often combined with other herbs, such as ginger, for an even better effect.
