Coriolus Versicolor PSP-50 is a concentrated premium mushroom extract that supports the immune system.*
Coriolus versicolor (also known under the names Trametes versicolor, Yun Zhi, Kawaratake and Turkey Tail) is the most intensively researched and best documented mushroom in the world, due to its outstanding properties.
Oriveda PSP-50 is the most potent Coriolus PSP extract commercially available. It is also the only fully certified extract worldwide, with guaranteed levels of the main bio-active and bio-available ingredients.
In Turkey Tail the main bioactive compounds are beta-glucans (2 different types) and polyphenols (anti-oxidants).
Oriveda guarantees the presence of these compounds and their bioavailability.
Only the mycelia (the 'roots' of the mushroom) were used for the extract, having the highest level of bio-actives.
PSP is the abbreviation of PolySaccharo-Peptide, a protein bound polysaccharide extracted from a specific strain of the mycelia of the Coriolus versicolor mushroom.
Extracted using hot water followed by alcohol precipitation - the main bioactives are water-solubles with a high molecular weight according to research. Alcohol precipitation is a purification process. It removes useless matter and low molecular weight compounds and thus increases the concentration of bioactives in the final product. The final product contains no alcohol.
Supports the immune system.

For people that are highly susceptible to swings in blood sugar levels (usually the same people that have
problems with alcohol and caffeine): mushroom extracts can have an effect on blood sugar
levels. People using insulin (such as diabetics) might have to adjust their medication. There are reports
stating that taking mushroom extracts can cause of feeling of fatigue or dizziness in these cases
because blood sugar levels are too low. Taking the product together with some sugar-containing
beverage (such as freshly squeezed juice also
contains vitamin C (!)) might help.
Since the effect on pregnant and breastfeeding women has never been researched, we recommend
against using mushroom extracts in these situations.
Keep away from children.
