Auricularia in an optimal concentration | MycoMedica

Auricularia (Judas' ear, jelly ear) is valued in Chinese medicine for abroad spectrum of effectsstrong>on the human body. It’s rich in minerals, vitamins,  polysaccharides and among others things, it’s a source of antioxidant melanin.
Why is 30% polysaccharides an optimal concentration in our Auricularia? More info
Tested in the German Agrolab.

Our Auricularia is grown on organic substrate. This substrate is based on an organic mixture of sawdust, organic wheat bran, cane sugar and natural gypsum. The part of the mushroom we use is fruitbody

We import the mushroom raw material we use for production of our MycoMedica products from China, from locations that have ideal climate and conditions for growth. We took the advice of our German partner who uses the same mushroom´s raw material from the same locations. Thanks to well-chosen growers, they sell their products on the German market for more than 40 years. And that is our inspiration. The Czech customer deserves the same quality.

About Auricularia

Auricularia (Auricularia polytricha) is a mushroom growing on tree trunks, it’s most often found on the European elder. Its sporocarps have a size of up to 10 cm, they are flexible and pliable, resembling an ear bolt (it’s called jelly ear fungus in English) and their colour is most often red-brown. You can also find Auricularia in Czech forests, usually from March to December. Auricularia is an important part of Asian cuisine, thanks to its appearance and consistency. Up to 500,000 tons are grown in Asia.

You can find more information about effects of Auricularia at Mushroom Collection or in the section Effects.

  • 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.

The foundations of MycoMedica stand on the following strong pillars:




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.

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.


I take the Auricularia mushroom after recommendation from a Chinese medicine practitioner. I'm taking it due to a leg problem after streptococcal disease. I not only feel better, but also the doctor's checks show noticeable progress.


I‘ve been struggling with haemorrhoids for a long time. I wanted to solve this illness once and for all and not just resort to a cure of the consequences. Milan Schirlo from MycoMedica advised me to use the Auricularia mushroom. After regular use at the recommended dosage, the problem has disappeared.


I take the Auricularia mushroom for cold feet, I have to say that I recommend it, even after such a short period of time.


I first learned about medicinal mushrooms from a magazine article that I was extremely interested in. I think the practices and foods used in traditional Chinese medicine are very effective. I preventively take 2 capsules of Judas' ear on a daily basis and I feel better. I'm also going to try the Reishi mushroom.


My dad suffers from arteriosclerosis, I was looking for more information about the so-called hardening of the arteries when I hit-on the Auricularia mushroom. After consultation I gave my father a capsule with Reish and Shiitake. Dad has taken capsules regularly and his condition has improved.


I use Auricularia as a preventive aid for myocardial infarction. I believe it‘s really effective.


Hello, I often fly abroad due to my work. I‘ve learned that long flights can lead to thrombosis. I read about the effects of this mushroom and decided to use it as a preventive method along with the Reish mushroom. I‘m also happy with the other effects of medicinal mushrooms and I generally feel better.


I use Judas' ear for cooking because I know this mushroom is very healthy. I was often troubled by constipation, so I decided to also use Judas' ear in tablet form. The effect is really good, I recommend it to all those who have the same problem.


My legs have been hurting for several years. Doctors said I had clogged blood vessels. Since the beginning of summer I‘ve been using Auricularia and Ganoderma. I also go to acupuncture. My situation has improved significantly.


For years, I have problems with rheumatoid arthritis - it hurts the large joints and knuckles on my hands, in the morning I’m very sore, especially when the weather changes. Or if I got chilly during the spring I started to use Cordyceps (2-0-0), Reishi (0-1-1) and Auricularii (0-1-1). My joints don’t hurt so often and they don‘t react to weather changes. Even when it cooler. We‘ll see through winter when it‘s worse.
