Chaga in an optimal concentration | MycoMedica

Chaga has been part of traditional Russian and Chinese medicine, which believe in its ability to rejuvenate and calm down the body and the mind. Choose Chaga with the most optimal ratio of active substances.
Why is 30% polysaccharides an optimal concentration in our Chaga? More info
Tested in the German Agrolab.

Our Chaga grows in the ecologically clean natural environment of the northeast Chinese upland on the trunks of a birch tree.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.

  • minimum 30 % polysaccharides (33-34 % in reality)
Package Content: 90 capsules at 500mg extract - in gelatin or vegetable capsules (vegetable capsules are also suitable for vegans)
Weight Content: 55,8g
Composition in 1 capsule:
Chaga, Inonotus obliquus, 100% pure extract - 500mg
excipients: no excipients, additives and preservatives

About Chaga

Chaga first forms multi-year sporocarps, which are up to 35 cm long. Only later on, when the tree dies and mycelium has reached deep under the bark, perfect sporocarps are formed. It comes from regions of Russia and Siberia, it’s also commonly found in northern Poland etc. Chaga has already been a part of traditional Russian medicine for several hundred years. It’s mostly used by the people of Khanty, for them, it’s very valuable and appreciated. Chaga is rich in a large number of bioactive substances, besides vitamins and minerals, it also contains melanin, thanks to which it has a dark colour, triterpene compounds betulin and betulinic acid, which it gets from its host – the birch, obliquol, and it also contains very important polysaccharides - beta glucan, flavonoids, sterols or pteridine. Raw material from Chaga, which we use, is grown on birches in northern China (the Hei Long Jiang province) and eastern Siberia, where nature is practically untouched by humans.
You can find more information about effects of Chaga 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.

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 have been suffering from Crohn's disease for 20 years and visiting a practicing traditional Chinese medicine practitioner, and was recommended the Chaga medicinal mushroom for this disease. I'm glad I found an effective and natural supplement.


I was rather sceptical about traditional Chinese medicine at the beginning, but I read scientific studies that confirm the beneficial effects of medicinal mushrooms. We've also read people's experiences on the Internet and I decided to order the Chaga mushroom which has great effects against infectious diseases. After several months using it, I can confirm that I‘m considerably less susceptible to various diseases than I was before using them. I ordered another pack.


I take medicinal mushrooms regularly. I have proven Shiitake and Cordyceps mushrooms, I had frequent intestinal problems. After several-weeks using the Chaga mushroom in accordance with the recommended dose it has helped me with my bowel problems.


I started taking Cagu and Cordyceps on the doctor's recommendation. I regularly take 2 capsules and after 2 months I feel much better. I have more energy and lower blood pressure. I noticed positive effects after 2 weeks. I intend to keep taking them.


I found the Chaga mushroom due to its anticancer effects. I must say that at first I didn‘t believe the mushroom could have the same effects as those described on your site. Chaga also strengthens the immunity to fight this disease and from personal experience of the mushroom it’s really effective.


I take the Chaga mushroom due to its influence on infectious disease. I'm glad I found a natural way of strengthening my immunity.


Hello, I would like to share my experience with you regarding the Siberian Chaga I use for diabetes. I have diabetes type II. and I have high values, after using your product regularly values have decreased substantially, so I can only recommend.


I‘m using Chaga from MycoMedica for the second month. It was recommended by a doctor who deals with traditional Chinese medicine. I take it as a supportive supplement for cancer therapy in chemotherapy and really helps me to tolerate conditions better after chemotherapy.


I read that the Chaga mushroom has a healing and protective effect on the gastric mucosa, so I started taking it for stomach ulcers and I can‘t speak highly enough, it really does the trick, I'll order another pack.


I learned about medicinal mushrooms from a friend who swears by them. After consultation, I decided to try the Chaga mushroom due to intestinal problems. I‘ve taken 2 tablets a day over three month and got rid of my problems. So I thanked my friend for the advice and also you for a quality product.


Hello, I would like to thank you for your Chaga and Coriolus mushrooms. I give them to my sick husband for Crohn's disease. Its state gradually and mainly improving visibly. We will certainly be using them for some time.


I’ve been using Coriolus, Reishi and Chaga for colon cancer for just 3 months, so far, my condition is stable. It isn‘t getting worse.


I am very happy with your Chaga, I‘m taking it along with Hericium for digestive problems such as "stomach fire," as my Chinese medicine therapist tells me and he recommended these mushrooms. Heartburn, the reflux is gradually disappearing. And the best bonus is that my skin has improved.


I send greetings from Ostrava and a big thank you for recommending the combination of Chaga, Coriolus and Reish for rheumatic pains in the joints. I think your therapist dietary advice has helped me.
