Turkey tail is a mushroom that grows on dead logs all around the world. Its Latin name is Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor. Versicolor means of many colors. And that’s because turkey tail has colored rings that look a lot like the tail of a turkey. In Japan, turkey tail is called kawaratake, which means cloud mushroom. There are quite a few strains of Trametes, but turkey tail in particular is of interest to scientists and herbalists. Turkey tail has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries to reduce phlegm, clear dampness, increase energy and boost the immune system. In traditional Chinese medicine, it’s called Yun Zhi.
This medicinal mushroom has cancer researchers excited... in fact, it’s an anti-cancer drug in some countries. But there are a few other reasons to add turkey tail to your dog’s daily meals too.

While other mushrooms products are mycelium (a lab-grown fungus that's only part of a mushroom), Four Leaf Rover Turkey Tail extract contains the fruiting body and the mycelium. Mycelium is grown on grains like oats, sorghum or rice, not on wood where mushrooms would grow in nature. Mycelium products contain significantly lower levels of valuable beta-glucan, the active medicinal compound in mushrooms.
