Ideal composition, maximum strength and efficacy

Hericium (lion’s mane mushroom in English, Hericium erinaceus) is an edible basidiomycete fungus, a medicinal mushroom originating from Asia, also abundantly found in Northern America. Hericium can also be found growing in our country, but only rarely.

Thanks to biofermentation and subsequent processing with the method of hot-water extraction , we offer high-quality extracts from hericium in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:

  • minimal 30 % polysaccharides (it is 33-34 %)
Package contents: 90 capsules at 500mg of the extract - in gelatin or vegetable capsules (vegetable capsules are even suitable for vegans)


About Hericium

The mushroom was named after the unique shape of its sporocarp, which is spherical and branched and it can have a diameter of up to 30 cm. Hericium has a delicate taste and a fish-like consistency. It grows parasitically in clusters on damaged tree trunks or stumps. Hericium has its firm place in traditional Chinese medicine, which belives that Hericium can balance the yin and yang in the entire organism.

Currently, Hericium's effect on the production of NFG (nerve growth factor) is being investigated.In traditional Chinese medicine, Hericium was mainly used for its ability to harmonise the stomach and spleen. Like other medicinal mushrooms,  Hericium is rich in polysaccharides ‒ beta-glucans, minerals, trace elements, its specific components are diterpenoids - hericenones and erinacines. Other important components of Hericia include palmitic acid, sugar alcohol threitol and D-arabinitol or provitamin D2, etc. 
Ancient Chinese and Japanese doctors were able to use its An Shen function (to calm the mind) and they also knew its beneficial influence on the enhancement of mental functions.


  • 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.

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.

Dávám si Hericium erinaceus pravidelně ve zkouškovém období a potvrzuji jeho účinky. Soustředění, paměť, zlepšení mentálních schopností.

Jan Ř., Ostrava

I started to use the Hericium mushroom because of heartburn. I tried many different kinds of food and tips, which supposedly help with heartburn, but I wasn’t satisfied with the result. I learned about the Hericium mushroom and I told myself that it’s worth trying. I'm glad I went into it, Hericium worked.

Klára S., Náchod

My dad suffers from Alzheimer's disease. I found Hericium on the Internet and I believed in the experience of people, who were satisfied with this mushroom. Although this disease can’t be cured, it can be stopped. After a single pack, Dad felt better and he had more energy. We'll definitely continue using this product.

Hello, I buy medicinal mushrooms from MycoMedica for my entire family, so we’ve had first-hand experience of their effects. I bought Hericium for my grandad who has Parkinson’s. His condition has visibly improved after several packages. I will keep recommending medicinal mushrooms from MycoMedica.

Honza V., Zlín

I bought Hericium because of the neuroborreliosis I had suffered. I had a problem with short-term memory. I started using the capsules according to the instructions. I didn’t notice the change in the first few days, but the change was already apparent after 2 weeks. Hericium helps improve brain activity and given the fact that, according to experience, Hericium is also good for Alzheimer, I believe its effect will keep improving my condition as well. Thank you.

Radim V., Blansko

I have been using Hericium and Reishi for six months because of insomnia. I am very happy with the result.

Kamila K., Štarnov

Those, who have experienced stomach ulcers, know what I’m writing about. The burning, blunt pain in the upper abdomen area complicated my life, I had no appetite and I had to go see a doctor. I was looking for options for treating stomach ulcers and I was impressed by the Hericium mushroom, as it really worked. If you have stomach ulcers, you should definitely try it.

Dana S., Znojmo

After suffering from borreliosis, I had problems with expressing myself and with regular dizziness. I take Hericium together with Reishi and I am very satisfied.

Martina B., Jihlava

I'd like to share my great experience with Hericium mushroom. My health deteriorated very much at the beginning of the year, I was very tired and I just wanted to sleep. Besides fatigue, I started fainting, and I was troubled by mental problems. I was very worried that it could be a serious illness. I came across medicinal mushrooms on the internet. I hadn’t heard of them before. I decided to try out Hericium, which should help with my symptoms. I was sceptical at first, but after using it for 14 days, my health went back to its original good state. I can only recommend this mushroom to all my acquaintances.

Ondřej V., Kladno

I was looking for some natural dietary supplement to improve my memory. I liked the fact that besides improving cognitive functions, Hericium also improves the immune system. I am satisfied with the product.

Pavla D., Prague

Hello, I have been struggling with depression for 30 years, but I don’t want to take antidepressants. I came across an article about medicinal mushrooms in a magazine. I thought I'd try them. I started taking Hericium and Cordyceps. I feel better and I feel a significant improvement in my depressive states.
