Oyster mushroom (tree oyster mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus) is a leafy edible mushroom, which grows on dead trees or stumps. It’s found in clusters.
Thanks to biofermentation and subsequent processing with the method of hot-water extraction , we offer high-quality extracts from oyster mushroom in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:
It grows in colder areas around the world, and mostly on warmer spring days to November. Caps of Oyster mushroom resemble a large oyster, after which it received its name oyster mushroom. The oyster mushroom has been known in traditional Chinese medicine for many centuries, where it has been used to solve many health problems and it’s known from Sung dynasty poetry as “the mushroom of flower heaven”. Cultivation of the Oyster mushroom only began in the middle of the last century. Surprisingly not in China, but in Europe(Italy and Hungary). The Oyster mushroom is a rich source of Group B vitamins, essential amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, and especially polysaccharides ‒ beta glucans, where pleuran is significant, also terpenes with their representative pleurotin. The Oyster mushroom is also a source of natural statins, i.e. substances reducing fat levels in the blood.
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 swear by my oyster mushrooms, I often make various dishes from it and I also like its taste. Due to its effects, I wanted to start using it regularly and we first came across your site. The effects of Oyster mushrooms are really noticeable. I recommend to everyone.
There‘s a lot of information on the internet regarding the effects of Oyster mushrooms. Two months ago, I ordered the Oyster mushroom and preventively took 2 capsules a day, it has a great effect on enhancing your immunity, I'm happy with your product.
Mr. Schirlo recommended the regular use of the oyster mushroom for the long-term treatment of recurring respiratory tract infections. I take 4 capsules per day, and it has a really noticeable effect. I would like to try some of your other mushroom products.
I take oyster mushrooms due to regular airway inflammation, I can confirm that it really has improved.
I’ve heard that these mushrooms regulate sugar and fat levels in the blood and I was interested further regarding its effects, I found a number of positive experiences on the Internet and your MycoMedica store was also very well evaluated. That's why I decided to enjoy the Oyster mushroom regularly and also bought it for my sister. We both praise the product.
I was advised to consume Oyster mushroom regularly because it lowers the blood pressure. Preparing a meal is quite challenging, so I decided to try the capsules. The reviews didn‘t lie, and it took just a few weeks to reduce pressure. An excellent product!
I’ve taken the Oyster mushroom for a second year because I feel a lot better and I‘m not so sick.
For a second month, I‘ve taken preventive Reishi and Oyster mushroom capsules from your company. I was intrigued by the fact that the Oyster mushroom is described as a natural remedy against ageing, I didn‘t feel this effect after two months, but I must say that I feel better having used them.
Oysters mushrooms are attributed to anti-cancer, immunomodulatory, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, I ordered it for my husband and myself, we‘re satisfied and regularly take it, we‘re considering ordering another pack.
I decided to write a review after three months of using the Oyster mushroom. I take capsules in line with the recommended dose, and it appears that my body is more resistant to infections. Previously, I was sick so often that I tried it everything. After using the Oyster mushroom regularly, my susceptibility to illness has significantly improved.
Oyster with Shiitake supports immunity and improves digestion. I believe in it. For half a year I haven’t been sick at all, and the flatulence has disappeared completely. I go to the toilet more regularly.
