Beta-glucans: How do they work?

These Beta-glucans do not fight against diseases. What they do instead is that they trigger or stimulate the cells that are responsible for battling illnesses and helping body immunity. When these compounds get into the body, they pretend to be intruders and are consumed by the body’s immune cells. These cells, also kneeboarding as the macrophages are given to the lymph nodes. In there, these nodes are broken into tinned bits. These bits are then further released to the innate killer cells that prim them, giving them a quicker reaction to the body. They act like the Greek gift of a Trojan horse, which is to your advantage!


Two intriguing compounds have been separated from the various strains of the Turkey Tail Mushroom. They are.

  • Polysaccharide-k, also known as PSK or “Krestin”
  • Polysaccharide peptide is also known as PSP.

The PSK was first found in Japan in the 1960s while the PSP was separated from China in the 1980s. Studies have carried out two compounds because of their ability to give support to the body’s immune system and to reduce the side effects that follow chemotherapy.

A review that was published discovered that both compounds reduced the symptoms of chemotherapy, boosted the infiltration of tumours by the cytotoxic T-Cells and improved the production of cells. The article also highlighted their tested benefits to the quality and sustainability of love, radiation therapy that makes them suitable for the management of cancer regimens,

Multiple studies have also proven that PSK is a beneficial action to the chemotherapy process for cancers of various kinds ranging from breast to colorectal to lung to breast cancers and has been so since the 1970s in Japan.

Gut health

This mushroom has also been used traditionally to improve the health of the guy due to its prebiotic properties. Studies have also proven that PSP in particular possesses a prebiotic effect that can modify the faecal microbiota composition of humans.

A further study sought to compare the effects of PSP to those in amoxicillin which serves as an antibiotic on the gut microbiome of humans and it was found that it acts as a prebiotic to improve the intestinal microbiome composition of humans.

As an antioxidant

Turkey tail not only works as an immune supporting compound, but it also is home to a wide range of antioxidants which include flavonoids and phenols. A study proved 38 phenolic compounds. These studies have proven that an important amount of water extracted from T. Versicolor is a natural way of getting antioxidants.
