Ideal composition, maximum strength and efficacy

Agaricus (Brazilian mushroom, Agaricus blazei Murill, Agaricus brasiliensis) was discovered by “Western” society in Piedele, which is a small viilage in the mountains of Sao Paulo region in Brazil. Local inhabitants were surprisingly long-living and healthy even in old ages. These people often used to eat Agaricus − “Mushroom from God”. About Agaricus and links between the condition of the natives and consummation of this mushroom was investigated by Dr. Furumoto in 1960’s, who sent Agaricus for research in Japan.

Thanks to biofermentation and subsequent processing with the method of double extraction , we offer high-quality extracts from Agaricus in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:

  • 30% polysaccharides (at least 300mg/g)

About Agaricus

Nowadays, Agaricus is a widespread and a popular mushroom not only in the culinary industry. It contains a large number of bioactive substances such as vitamins, minerals, and mainly polysaccharides - beta glucans, Krestin, glucomannans, ergosterols and sodium pyroglutamate, etc. Products, which are manufactured from it, are often used in clinical studies. The concentration of polysaccharides in the extract is also important.  

Agaricus blazei Murill supports natural defences of the organism and regulates the immune system. Scientists, who compared the activity of fungal polysaccharide molecules, found out that – of all mushrooms - Agaricus molecules are themost active oneswith regard to the immune system. Therefore, we recommend continuous use of Agaricus for 1-2 months at the most, so as to avoid "fatigue" of the immune system.

Dosage-+
 

Dosage:

  • for health problems: 3–4 capsules per day (we recommend consulting your doctor or Chinese medicine practitioner)
  • for preventive use: 1–2 capsules per day 
  • we recommend using it for 5 days a week and then skipping 2 days
  • take the capsules on an empty stomach (at least 30 minutes before meals or 60 minutes after meals), wash them down with water or weak green tea
  • when using medicinal mushrooms, we recommend increasing the intake of vitamin C, which increases the absorption of active substances. For example, in the form of a Barbados cherry extract Acerola.
  • Agaricus should be taken continuously for up to 1-2 months. Observe the rule 5/2 days - see above.

The foundations of MycoMedica stand on the following strong pillars:

QUALITY - SAFETY - EFFICIENCY

 

 

Emphasis on the environment

Most of our raw mushroom material comes from China. Ecology isn’t often a priority for contemporary China. Therefore, it’s difficult, but at the same time necessary to seek absolutely pure nature untouched by industry for cultivation of medicinal mushrooms. MycoMedica mainly uses mushrooms grown in in the Fujian, Anhui and Jiangxi provinces, where there are areas virtually untouched by civilisation. Pesticides, heavy metals, microorganisms, moulds, radioactivity are a danger, which raw mushroom material must be protected against unconditionally.

 

Testing in Agrolab 

All the raw mushroom material we use to produce our mushroom products is tested before processing in  Agrolab, an independent German laboratory for more than 500 types of known heavy metals, pesticides and microorganisms that are harmful to humans. We are able to present these tests on request.

Classic tests conducted by the German lab. Agrolab have now been expanded with testing forpolycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which have carcinogenic effects, which can affect fetal development and are also linked to cardiovascular diseases. See here. 

The final production of our products takes place under the strictest hygienic conditions in the Czech Republic. For our production, we use the standards ISO 9001/2009, certified HACCP and the system of quality IFS.

 

What more does MycoMedica offer?

We also offer free advisory services for our products.

When your order is over 2,000 CZ, shipping is free.

For larger orders, we have discounts:

  • when buying over 4,000 CZK, you receive an immediate discount of 5% from the total purchase (not applicable to wholesale)
  • when buying over 8,000 CZK, you receive an immediate discount of 10% from the total purchase (not applicable to wholesale)

 

Regular training

We train experts in mycotherapy, who can use our mushrooms effectively in their practice. We also hold international seminars on medicinal mushrooms, these are attended by leading experts on this issue.

 

How to choose the right product from medicinal mushrooms?

Powder or extract?

If we want to use as many active substances as possible from mushrooms, we must process them allowing them to disrupt the chitinous envelope of the mushroom cell. Humans don’t have the necessary enzymes to digest chitin, so they’re unable to release active substances from the mushroom cell wall during digestion and instead they excrete them from their organism.

 

Processing options:

a) decoctions

It’s possible to produce a decoction from dried mushrooms. However, this traditional method requires a large number of mushrooms to achieve therapeutic effects.

 

b) mushroom powder or biomass

Dried mushrooms are ground to a very fine powder. This partially disturbs the chitin envelope and the body is then able to extract active substances from the mushroom.

 

c) extracts 

We can break the chitin barrier using gentle extraction with hot water and extract the maximum  amount of active substances from the mushroom. In the case of most kinds of mushrooms, it’s also necessary to perform condensation using ethanol at the end of the extraction process (the so-calleddouble extraction ), as some active substances are water insoluble.

 

Extraction is the most optimal method for processing mushrooms for medical purposes. This is why the overwhelming majority of medical studies are conducted with extracts and not with mushroom powder.

The main, although not the only active substances of medicinal mushrooms are polysaccharides (mainly β-(1, 3)-D-glucans). While dried powder contains about 0.5‒3% polysaccharides, our extracts contain 30%.

Another good argument for the use of MycoMedica mushrooms is that a great many doctors and Chinese medicine practitioners are working with our products and they’ve had only the best experience with them. Seehere.

We also use MycoMedica products in our doctor’s office, so we have everyday feedback on their beneficial effects.

 

What to look for when choosing

Some companies use entirely common raw mushroom material for processing, in order to achieve a higher percentage of polysaccharide content. Common labs won’t recognise the difference. However, this raw material has minimal therapeutic effects. If indeed, it has any at all. Together with our German colleagues, we have been testing all raw mushroom material, so that it contains only high-quality mushroom polysacharides..

Some Chinese companies, in order to achieve microbiological purity of extracts, expose mushrooms to the effects of radioactive radiation, which destroys microorganisms. We emphasise that MycoMedica products aren’t exposed to radiation in in any phase of production.

 

Verified raw materials

Some Chinese manufacturers don’t respect traditional manufacturing practices. For example, mushroom drying must be done slowly and in sunshine. This is why it’s so important for us to cooperate only with proven growers and processors of raw mushroom material. We don’t use any unverified raw material in our products.

 

We don’t take our motto QUALITY - SAFETY - EFFICIENCY lightly. Thanks to this, we have gradually become the most important East European producer of products from medicinal mushrooms.

Hello, I bought the Agaricus medicinal mushroom for my mother and I'd like to share my very positive experience with you. My mum very often had a cold, not only during winter but whenever she was looking after the grandchildren, she caught all kinds of illnesses from them. I have heard about medicinal mushrooms earlier, but this time I began to study their effects in more detail. I was attracted by Agaricus, which is good for boosting the immune system. After the first package, my mother already began to feel better and the colds have been avoiding her.

Agaricus was recommended to me to boost my immune system. I don’t trust most dietary supplements, so I started to do some searching and I came across several interesting articles. They described quite in detail how it’s possible for medicinal mushrooms to support the immune system. The articles were based on scientific foundations, so I didn’t hesitate and I ordered the  Agaricus mushroom from you, which has one of the most powerful effects to boost immunity. I am really impressed by these effects, as the changes are already noticeable after 2 weeks.
