Coprinus (shaggy ink cap, Coprinus comatus) contains a significant amount of vitamins, minerals and trace elements.
Thanks to biofermentation and subsequent processing with the method of hot-water extraction, we offer high-quality extracts from coprinus in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:
Coprinus is also calledshaggy ink cap. In Latin: Coprinus comatus. It’s highly prized in gastronomy and also has a firm place in European mycotherapy and traditional Chinese medicine. It has been shown to contain a significant amount of vitamins, minerals and trace elements, and all of them in an unusually balanced composition. Furthermore, it also has a significant concentration of proteins. Coprinus also contains all essencial aminoacids, which humans need. According to Chinese medicine, its main domain is the so-called Xiao Ke (three thirstings). This state is close to what we call diabetes mellitus II, or simply diabetes. Strictly monitored blood sugar tests are always important and especially when using Coprinus.
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.

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.
I‘m treating diabetes type II. after consultation, I decided to use Coprinus because it regulates the blood sugar levels. I'm very happy with the effects.
As a result of diabetes I take Coprinus and I started to take vitamin C on recommendation, we are very satisfied with the capsules.
I found a contact for Mr. Milan Schirlo on the MycoMedia site, I wanted to talk to him about diabetes. Mr. Milan Schirlo completely answered all my questions and recommended me to use the Coprinus mushroom. I believe in the effects of traditional Chinese medicine, therefore, I believed that this mushroom would really have the desired effect. After two months I can only recommend it and I will continue to order. Thank you.
I started taking Mushroom Coprinus for regular constipation that made my life uncomfortable. I didn‘t want to take medication and I came across medicinal mushrooms on the internet. I take the mushrooms regularly and will continue with the recommended dose, the curative effects have really come true. I believe there are people who are sceptical about medicinal mushrooms, but I can only recommend it after trying it myself.
I take the Coprinus and Auricularia mushrooms to support digestion. I was very happy with the effects and I began experiencing positive changes within a few weeks.
I‘ve read that it‘s a polysaccharide-rich general fertiliser, which has a positive effect on reducing sugar in the blood. My mother is treating diabetes, so I took her some capsules for her birthday and she is very happy with them. In addition, common Coprinus contains a whole range of important substances for the body, so I believe in its effects and I will be recommending it to my acquaintances.
I can confirm that Coprinus improves digestion, I‘ve been using it for months, but I feel much better after such a short time.
I use Coprinus together with Agaricus, Reishi, Coriolus and Shiitake as a supplemental for sarcoma therapy. I use regularly capsules in line with Mr Schirlo's recommendation and I‘m very happy and feel much better.
I was visiting a friend who, like myself, is treating Diabetes type II. and taking Coprinus capsules, so I became more interested in them. She gave them a good recommendation, so I eventually ordered them and I don‘t regret it. They really work. I recommend them.
I can confirm the effect of Coprinus in regard to reducing blood sugar. I have it together with Maitake and 1 teaspoon of MycoClean. I take 2 capsules every day.
