Like many of our medicinal mushrooms, turkey tail works well if blended in a drink or elixir with some of its 'shroom' friends such as cordyceps, lion's mane, resihi, and tremella. If you can't decide what mushroom to try first, you may enjoy of medicinal mushroom complex powder which contains a powerful blend of eight of our bestselling mushrooms.

How Much to Take? Turkey Tail Dose
If you're a medicinal mushroom newbie, we suggest that you start with a smaller dose of around 1/2 teaspoon. Try it first on an empty stomach, and then listen to your body and notice how you feel. After a few doses, you may want to up it to a heaped teaspoon. For some people, medicinal mushrooms can have powerful effects for energy and wellbeing levels, so it's always a good idea to see what it does for you. Turkey tail is a medicinal mushroom that can be enjoyed any time through the day. It is suggested that you take it up to three times a day, although some TCM practitioners may recommend that you take larger and more frequent doses if you are taking Turkey Tail for therapeutic purposes.
