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 hot-water extraction , we offer high-quality extracts from Agaricus in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Agaricus has helped me to minimise the unpleasant skin symptoms caused by my allergy to cats. I've only been using for a few weeks, and I'm certainly going to continue to use it.
I am treating diabetes type II. after studying the available information thoroughly, I decided to start taking Agaricus, which regulates sugar. I have to confirm that taking the recommended dose during the first month has reduced my sugar levels.
Hello, I bought the Agaricus medicinal mushroom for my mother and I would like to share a very positive experience with you. Mother was very cold and got colds during the winter, and she caught any kind of illness around and often gave them to the Grandchildren. I had previously heard about medicinal mushrooms, but this time I began to study their effects in more detail. I was attracted by the Agaricus mushroom, which is ideal for boosting immunity. My mother felt better after the first pack and a cold was avoided.
After consultation, I was advised to use the Agaricus mushroom, which I use as a supplement to chemotherapy. I can confirm that I feel better than before using it, so tomorrow I will start a second pack.
I bought Agaricus mushrooms for my daughter who has a food allergy. She always suffers from rashes, Mr. Schirlo willingly advised me and recommended this medicine. I oversaw that my daughter took the supplement regularly, and the results are there to see. I would recommend it to others.
We‘ve had large number of cancer cases in the family, so I was looking for a natural path that would act as a cancer prevention. I religiously take Agaricus every day and believe in its effects.
I‘ve been advised to take Agaricus due to high blood pressure. I take 3 capsules every day and I notice that my blood pressure has significantly reduced. I recommend it to everyone who, like myself, suffers from hypertension.
I’ve been taking Agaricus with regularity at recommended intervals for more than half a year to boost immunity. It really works, I recommend it.
Hello, I would also like to express my opinion on the MycoMedica medicinal mushrooms, these products are taken by the whole family and we can’t say a bad word about them. Now my nephews who suffer from food allergies have ordered Agaricus for the first time and they‘re very happy with it. Thank you for the wonderful and quality medicinal mushrooms offer.
Agaricus was recommended to boost my immunity. I don’t believe much in most dietary supplements, so I started searching further and found some interesting articles. They described in quite good detail how it‘s possible for medicinal mushrooms to be able to support the immune system. The articles were written on a scientific basis, so I didn‘t hesitate to order the Agaricus mushroom with you, which has some of the most powerful effects on immunity. I'm excited about the effects, the changes are noticeable after 2 weeks.
I use Agaricus with Reishi for atopic eczema. I‘ve noticed plenty of improvement after taking them for a month...
I confirm the effect of Agaricus and Cordyceps on a chronic cough that has plagued me since spring. It was quite dry, mostly without mucus. I don‘t know how I got it, but now it only appears occasionally in the early evening.
I tried Agaricus to support digestion. I took it with MycoClean which contains Yi Yi Ren. Now I'm very hydrated, my digestion was slow. I don‘t suffer from flatulence so much now, and I certainly feel better. Occasionally, some swelling occurs generally around my ankles. I'm thinking about adding the Cordyceps mushroom.
I can only commend the effect of MycoMedica medicinal mushrooms. My wife used the combination of Agaricus, Reishi, Coriolus and Chaga in an oncological problem. It’s my belief that thanks to this combination, it was much better to handle chemotherapy and radiotherapy. And most importantly, I hope the monster never returns. We will remain faithful to MycoMedica mushrooms. Both of us, as today I sometimes use it myself.
