I recently purchased a product called Turkey Tail immune support for HPV. Is that enough support or would you reccommend something else?

Is there anything you can recommend that will boost the immune system?

Hi Anonymous and thanks for your question.

The turkey tail mushroom (Trametes versicolor) is currently being researched to determine IF it can be used to improve the immune systems of some cancer patients. A lot of additional research needs to be done to determine if there are benefits. In the meantime, commercial products which claim to support the immune system through the use of the name "Turkey Tail" or by including the mushrooms among the ingredients have not been proven to assist people with cancer or HPV.

Please see the following link for factual information about HPV: http://www.cdc.gov/std/hpv/pap/default.htm

Hope that helps,
