Maitake in an optimal concentration | MycoMedica

Maitake (Grifola frondosa), or dancing mushroom, is a very popular mushroom and is currently grown worldwide. Traditional Chinese medicine believes in its cleansing effects and it has been used in Chinese medicine for thousands of years.
Why is 30% polysaccharides an optimal concentration in our Maitake? More info
Tested in the German Agrolab.

Our Maitake is grown on organic substrate. This substrate is based on a mixture of sawdust, organic wheat bran, fresh soil, cane sugar and natural gypsum. 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.

About Maitake

Maitake (Grifola frondosa, Grifola frondosa, translated as a dancing mushroom, this& name comes from reactions of mushroom pickers, who danced with joy, when they found this amazing and very valuable mushroom). It’s a parasitic fungus from the Polyporaceae family with a sporocarp, which has the shape of a large cluster, which consists of a leg with up to many hundreds of mushroom caps grown together. The sporocarp ofMaitake reaches the width of up to 100 cm. It grows near bases of trees and stumps. Maitake has its homeland in Asia and in Northern America, but today  it’s widespread worldwide and cultivated commercially as well.
Maitake is popular in the culinary industry, it has a rich delicate taste and a very pleasant aroma, but is even better known as a medicinal mushroom used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine, while “Western cultures” only described it for the first time in 1785, namely by the Scottish mycologist James J. Dickson. Maitake contains many biologically active substances, from vitamins and minerals, through polysaccharides, proteoglycans (D-fractions), phenols, flavonoids, unsaturated fatty acids and many others.
 You can find more information about effects of Maitake 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.

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 use the Maitake mushroom together with Reish to strengthen my immunity. This combination was recommended to me and has a very good effect on my body, so I will continue using it. I recommend it.


I ordered Maitake for my mother who suffers from a loss of appetite. I decided to try Maitake medicinal mushrooms after reading the reviews over the internet. Mum‘s appetite has returned, so I'm very happy with the effects.


I generally don‘t write reviews, but due to the Maitake mushroom’s effect I decided to share my experience. I'm overweight and I’ve tried plenty of other products that had a positive rating on the internet, but none helped me, and I still kept gaining. I mainly took Chapel Maitake due to its positive effects on diabetes. I started to notice that I felt better and that I was even starting to lose kilogrammes. In retrospect, I read that Maitake is also used for weight loss. I can only recommend it from my own experience.


I’m treating my breast cancer. I was looking for a natural path that would help me to ease the side effects of chemotherapy. After consultation, I chose Maitake in combination with the Coriolus and Reishi mushrooms and I must say that I feel much better.


I bought the Maitake mushroom for my grandfather, who has already retired. I read that Maitake is a good prevention for elderly people. My grandfather regularly takes the capsule and is very happy with them. He says he‘s feeling better overall. I’ll buy them again, thank you.


I take Maitake mushrooms for osteoporosis. Maitake is able to support bone tissue as described. We’re happy to find a supplement that‘s natural and really effective.


I'm treating bowel cancer. A friend with the same diagnosis had a great experience with the Maitake supplement. At first I didn‘t believe its effects, so I began searching the Internet for more information on medicinal mushrooms. To my surprise some doctors actually recommend medicinal mushrooms. After reading more articles, I decided to give Maitake a try and I'm so glad I did. I‘m feeling much better and I‘ll continue using after these capsules have gone.


I started using Maitake due to high blood pressure. I took the given advice and tried Maitake. I have to confirm that my blood pressure has decreased, so I certainly recommend it.


I can only praise Maitake capsules. I have diabetes type II. and Maitake mushrooms reduce glycaemia. This diet supplement has been very good to me. I‘ll order another pack.


I have diabetes type II. Initially, I only used Coprinus (2-2-2). The sugar level was around twenty when the condition began to improve, I added Maitake and reduced the Coprinus. Today I have sugar levels around 7, I still use Maitake. The district doctor is happy with my progress and we‘re going to modify (reduce) medication. Thank you 😊


Excess weight has been my lifetime struggle. I’ve kept various diets and hunger strikes. I think I've tried everything over the last few years. Since spring I‘ve used Maitake, Cordyceps and MycoClean. Occasionally (usually before menstruation) I will add MycoStress so that I don‘t do "stress eating", as Mr Schirlo says. And above all regularly three times a day, not eating between meals, and trying to eat foods that strengthen the spleen and omit food that hurts. So no yogurt for breakfast. It's going slowly, but it is going. And there are no fluctuations in general. Most of all, regularity is definitely a testimony for me. And I have a lot more energy. And more importantly, 23 kg less 😊


I took Reish, Coriolus and Maitake to aid chemotherapy. I think it‘s one of the reasons why I went through it without serious problems. I now have radiotherapy in ahead of me. Wish me luck.


I take it for diabetes. My sugar levels stay down. I praise you.


I take Maitake and Cordyceps for osteoporosis. I’ve been using it for several months and I feel pretty good. We'll see how the tests go.


I had high PSA, so I was recommended Cordyceps, Maitake and Coriolus. After several months of intensive use, I have normal PSA. I also regulated my urination. I hope it lasts. I have another check in 3 months.
