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 health problems: 3–10 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.

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.

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

  • 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.

Už několik roků mě bolely nohy. Doktoři říkali, že mám ucpané cévy. Od začátku léta užívám Auricularii a Ganodermu. Také chodím na akupunkturu. Stav se výrazně zlepšil.

Zdeňka B., Karlovy Vary

I must share this experience. My client with ischemic lower limb disease demonstrated by angiography, with  pains in the legs, cold feet and underwent bypass surgery to extend blood vessels. However, the desired effect didn’t occur. Pain, cold feet, walking on crutches and a similarly affected second lower limb, which had to wait for surgery, until the more affected leg, which had already undergone surgery, recovered. He was taking a lot of medication (he is still taking them today), he has diabetes, he is 72 years old. However, the situation was getting worse and the second limb also had to be operated on. When he visited me, he was quite desperate. A former hockey player, an athlete with body and soul, and his prospects so problematic. An amputation hung in the air. Nevertheless, he tried to refuse taking any remedies, he though that an acupuncture could be a solution. I didn’t let up and I recommended Auricularia at a dose of 3 x 3 capsules, two packs, which is dosage for 20 days in total. After consuming this dosage and subsequent check-up at the hospital, it was discovered that the inguinal artery is now more passable and there is also audible flow on the heel in the area of the Achilles tendon. We continued on, his legs were still hurting, but they were no longer cold. The impending amputation didn’t take place. He continued taking 3 x 3 from Monday to Friday, two packs. Currently, he no longer needs crutches when walking, there is still a problematic 2 cm according to the last examination and the blood flow is restored. I am thrilled with this experience and I am happy with the work well done. Currently, he takes 2 x 2 Auricularia for five days a week, he walks without a walking stick, his legs no longer feel cold and, above all, they’re almost without pain. I will try to convince him that adding ganoderma would hit the jackpot.

Jan V., Zlín

I use Auricularia mushroom following the recommendation of a Chinese medicine practitioner. I'm taking it because of a defect on my leg after streptococcal disease. I feel much better and there is also apparent progress during check-ups with my doctor.

Ivan H., Prague

I have been struggling with hemeroids for a long time. I wanted to solve this illness once and for all and not always resort to treating the consequences. Mr. Milan Schirlo from MycoMedica advised me on the use of the Auricularia mushroom. After regular use according to the recommended dosage, the problem hasn’t reappeared.

Nela P., Pardubice

I have been taking the Auricularia mushroom for my cold feet, and I must say that it’s already working after a short time. I recommend it.

Mirka B., Bludov

I first learned about medicinal mushrooms from an article in a magazine, which really impressed me. I think that procedures and foodstuffs used in traditional Chinese medicine are really efficient. I have been taking 2 capsules of jelly ear per day as a prevention and I feel better. I'm also going to try out the Reishi mushroom.

Jarmila H.

My dad suffers from arteriosclerosis, I was looking for more information about the so-called hardening of the arteries and I came across the Auricularia mushroom. After consultation, I ordered the capsules for my father together with Reishi and Shiitake. My dad takes the capsules regularly and his condition is improving.

Vít H., Olomouc

I use Auricularia as a prevention for myocardial infarction. I believe it’s really effective.

Vladimír T., Prague

Hello, I often fly abroad due to my work. I have learned that long flights can lead to thrombosis. I have read more information about effects of this mushroom and I decided to take it preventively together with Reishi. I am satisfied with other effects of medicinal mushrooms as well and I feel better overall.

Hana B., Karlovy Vary

I use jelly ear for cooking, as I know that this mushroom is very healthy. I was often troubled by constipation, and so I decided to use jelly ear in the form of tablets as well. The effect is really good, I recommend it to anyone who has the same problem.

Karolína S., Brno

I have been taking Reishi and Shiitake mushrooms as a prevention to thrombosis, as I am very afraid. I will continue using them, since I feel better overall.
