Loaded with antioxidants, turkey-tail mushrooms are great ingredients for bioactive products for the pharmaceutical and food industries.

Antioxidants are natural cleansers for the body. By reducing oxidative stress on the body, they help cleanse the body of free radicals, which can potentially result in diseases like diabetes, cancer and heart-diseases.
