Enoki (lily mushroom, Flammulina velutipes) is a well-known edible mushroom, mostly in China, Korea and Japan.
Thanks to biofermentation and subsequent processing with the method of hot-water extraction , we offer high-quality extracts from enoki in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:
Enoki grows saprophytically in in clusters on tree trunks, near roots or on stumps. In nature, It’s mostly found during colder periods of the year, for example, in autumn and winter. The caps are honey or brown in colour and they’re sticky, while the leg is velvety. Nowadays, the mushroom is grown commercially, in order to cover the demand, which grew in the last century after research byDrIkekawi, who studied the incidence of cancer in the common population and in the population growing and consuming Enoki.
In history, Enoki was appreciated by ancient Egyptians and Chinese. In Egypt, it was seen as a mushroom of immortality and so it was reserved only for pharaohs, as well as in China, where it was seen as a mushroom, which prolonged life. Enoki contains a lot of active substances vitamins, minerals, polysaccharides ‒ beta glucans, antioxidant polyphenols and isoflavones, e.g. genistein, adenosine, terpenes, steroids or sphingosine cerebroside, etc. The concentration of polysaccharides in the extract is also important.
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.
I learned that the Enoki mushroom can increase the number of immune cells and activate them. Since I have a weakened immune system, especially after winter and after taking antibiotics, I’ve decided to try the Enoki mushroom‘s effects and I‘m very happy to find MycoMedica. Not only do they have good quality products, but they‘re also able to explain and advise me. I can recommend MycoMedica and medicinal mushrooms and I will continue to order them.
I’ve been suffering from mite allergies since my childhood. I was looking for a natural supportive product against allergies, and I read about medicinal mushrooms on the Internet. I take Enoki regularly, which should suppress my immune system‘s exaggerated reactions and I am very happy with the result.
I am treating breast cancer, a Chinese medicine practitioner explained to me that some medicinal mushrooms are very effective in cancer and that they can trigger apoptosis and strengthen immunity. Because of these effects, I began taking the Enoki mushroom and I don’t have any regrets. I can recommend it.
I‘m often sick, so I take 3 Enoki capsules a day, I have to say that I feel that there is real increase in my immunity because I‘m not so sick so often.
Mr. Schirlo explained to me that Enoki acts as an anti-inflammatory and it‘s also a powerful antioxidant, protecting the blood vessels and having a beneficial effect on arteriosclerosis. I ordered Enoki for my dad and he is happy with it. Thank you for your great attitude.
I use Enoki and Shiitake to strengthen my immune system, I'm happy with the effect and I can recommend it.
After reading an article on MycoMedica on brain function enhancement, I decided to try and I take the Enoki mushroom on the basis of the scientific background. If you want to improve your memory, be sure to try.
Hello, I currently have Enoki, Reishi, Cordyceps and Auricularia mushroom which are helpful in supporting the cardiovascular system. I also see a number of beneficial side effects, for example, more energy. Overall, I feel better than I did before taking them.
I use the Enoki mushroom as a supplement for cancer treatment. I’ve studied its effects and I‘m convinced that it will really help me and I‘m very happy with it.
I take the Enoki mushroom, due to weak immunity, and I‘ve also bought it for other family members. We‘re all satisfied, we‘re not ill and cold so often.
The therapist recommended that I use the Enoki mushroom along with Reishi for food intolerance. I added the extract from Yi Yi Ren (MycoClean). The children take it too. I can see how my condition is really improving. According to Chinese medicine, I strengthen the spleen by dietetics.
