(NaturalNews) Incredible new research out of Australia has shown that a compound called polysaccharopeptide (PSP), which comes from a type of mushroom called "Turkey Tail," is 100 percent effective at targeting prostate cancer stem cells and suppressing tumor formation. The research, which has been published in the online journal PLoS ONE, represents the first to show that a natural substance is totally and completely effective in every single trial.

For the study, Dr. Patrick Ling, senior researcher from the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre in Queensland and the Institute for Biomedical Health & Innovation (IHBI) at QUT, and his colleagues fed PSP for 20 weeks to mice with prostate cancer. Compared to another group of prostate cancer mice not given PSP, which subsequently developed prostate tumors, the PSP group remained completely free of tumors.

"The findings are quite significant," said Dr. Ling. "What we wanted to demonstrate was whether [PSP] could stop the development of prostate tumors in the first place. In the past, other inhibitors tested in research trials have been shown to be up to 70 percent effective, but we're seeing 100 percent of this tumor prevented from developing with PSP."

Turkey Tail mushrooms are native to many northern forests around the world, and they have been highly studied for their medicinal benefits. Particularly in China and Japan, Turkey Tail mushrooms are already used as anti-cancer medicine, as well as an antimicrobial, anti-malarial, and immunomodulating natural treatment. And besides PSP, Turkey Tail mushrooms contain many other anti-cancer compounds like beta-glucan-proteins, polysaccharide K (PSK), and ergosterol derivatives, all of which provide substantial health benefits.

"Our findings support that PSP may be a potent preventative agent against prostate cancer, possibly through targeting of the prostate cancer stem cell population," added Dr. Ling.

Turkey Tail mushroom extracts with high levels of PSP and many other anti-cancer compounds can be found at most natural grocers, health food shops, and online vitamin and supplement venders.
