Trametes versicolor (Coriolus versicolor)

Trametes versicolour also known as coriolus versicolour or Turkey tail, is a mushroom originally found to grow in Asia and now grows all over the globe. The multi-coloured cap resembles the colours of a turkey tail, displaying colours of brown, blue, white and grey on it’s outside cap. The underside of the top is white with small pores.1 
Historically, Coriolus was used in Chinese medicine to increase one’s energy and assist with increasing the vitality of those experiencing chronic diseases.  In Mexician folk medicine, the fungus was used to treat a vast array of skin ailments, particularly with impetigo and ringworm.1 
In vitro clinical studies have found coriolus to have a high potent immunoprotector and antiviral activity, and hence is used to strengthen the immune system in certain immunological conditions, such as in HIV, influenza viruses and herpes. It is also known for it’s interferon activity with cell receptors, and as a result is known to improve the quality of life, of those experiencing certain palliative conditions.1,2,3 
It was also found that a glycoprotein extracted from the mycelia of the fungus inhibits blood platelet aggravation and may be used in cases of hypertension, diabetes, rheumatic conditions as well as cases of thrombosis. Additionally, coriolus was studied to assist with nephrotic conditions such as glomerulonephritis and specifically with conditions involving proteinuria.1
