Trametes versicolor – also known as Coriolus versicolor and Polyporus versicolor – is a common polypore mushroom found throughout the world. Meaning "of several colors", "versicolor" reliably describes this fungus that displays different colors. For example, because its shape and multiple colors are similar to those of a wild turkey, T. versicolor is commonly called turkey tail. The top surface of the cap shows typical concentric zones of different colors. The flesh is 1–3 mm thick and has leathery texture. Older specimens, such as the one pictured above, can have zones with green algae growing on them, thus appearing green. It commonly grows in tiled layers. The cap is rust-brown or darker brown, sometimes with blackish zones. The cap is flat, up to 8 x 5 x 0.5–1 cm in area. It is often triangular or round, with zones of fine hairs. The pore surface is whitish to light brown, pores round and with age twisted and labyrinthine. 3-8 pores per millimeter.
How Hard Rhino Turkey Tail Extract is Made
Hard Rhino Turkey Tail extract is made from a dual extraction process. The first step is a hot water extraction. This is the most common and the least expensive and where many companies stop. When you find "cheap" mushroom supplements, they are either simple dried powders or are water extracted only. To get the full benefit of medicinal mushrooms, the second (and much more costly) alcohol extraction step is required.
Ethanol (or sometimes methanol) extraction isolates the water-insoluble components. Alcohol extraction process is in general used as a second step after hot-water extraction. Also since alcohol alone will not break down chitin effectively, heat must be added.
Without this second step of alcohol extraction, many of the additional beneficial ingredients simply cannot be extracted.
The recommended dose is 500mg to 1000mg per day which is roughly equal to 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon. At this dose, a 30 gram jar will last you 30 to 60 days.
