Mycomedica hory
MycoCholest_detail s razitkem
A high-quality combination of Shiitake and ang-khak rice mold (Monascus purpureus). Due to the content of monacolin, it helps to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels. We have also added coenzyme Q10 and rutin to enhance its effects.
As a result of the EU regulation, we were forced to change the recommended dosage of our product MycoCholest, which contains Monacolin K from red fermented rice. This substance had a previously approved health claim regarding the effect of 10 mg (4 capsules) intake on cholesterol levels, which in our experience was the optimal dose. Given that from 21 June 2022 we are unable to recommend dosages that exceed a daily intake of 3 mg or more of Monacolin K, thanks to the EU, it is not currently possible to use the health claim.

About the product-+

The main component of the MycoCholest product is red yeast rice, which has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Red rice is processed by fermentation with yeast Monascus purpureus. This produces a substance rich in monacolins (especially monacolin K), which can maintain proper cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the organism.

For our product, we use only red fermented rice, which is organically grown and processed in the USA. All their products go through rigorous testing. This ensures that our product doesn’t contain any harmful substances (e.g. toxins citrinin or nephrotoxin), which is a common problem for Chinese producers.

To maintain the full spectrum of active ingredients and at the same time increase the product’s effect, we use red fermented rice extract at a concentration of only 0.6% p>

MycoCholest also contains the medicinal mushroom Shiitakecoenzyme Q10, which needs to be supplemented more when consuming red fermented rice, and rutin (vitamin P).

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.

For larger orders, we have discounts:

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.
