The mixture of medicinal fungi Ganoderma and Polyporus and Chinese herbs is based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine which support hair growth.
The recipe of MycoHair is based on the traditional Chinese medicine's recipe Nu Huang Bian Zi Tang. But it is modified for the imbalances of modern man. You can find more information about this topic on publicly available sources, e.g. the Internet.

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.
All the raw mushroom material used in the production of our mushroom products is tested before processing in the Agrolab German independent laboratory for more than 500 types of known heavy metals, pesticides and human-dangerous microorganisms.
According to Chinese medicine, hair quality is affected by the strength of the liver and kidneys. The blood vacuity of the liver and the essence or the Yin of the kidneys can cause hair loss or premature graying. The mixture of MycoHair contains herbs that nurture the kidneys and liver. The most important herb of the product MycoHair, which is based on the traditional herbal recipe Nu Huang Bian Zi Tang, is the root of Chinese knotweed (He Shou Wu). This root boosts hair strength and quality and it stops premature graying. Its name can be translated as the herb that blackens Mr. Wu's hair. Its main effects are the strengthening of the Shen Jing (kidneys' essence) and the Gan Xue (blood of the liver). It is used especially for hair loss, bad quality and premature graying. He Shou Wu also hydrates dry hair. Shu Di Huang, another herb present in the mixture, strengthens the nourishing effect of He Shou Wu. Other herbs, in cooperation with Chinese knotweed, also nourish the Gan (liver) and the Shen (kidneys).
If hair loss is caused by the vacuity of the Gan Xue (blood of the liver), I recommend focusing on its replenishment with a diet change – see here.
Method of production:
The first and fundamental stage is the cooking of the quality dried herbs and fungi in the water under the high pressure for 30 minutes. It is a traditional method of production. And it is also very important, because it leads to the interconnection of the active substances of the ingredients. The theory of the Chinese phytotherapy says that boiling creates new active substances. The extraction process begins in the second phase and it increases the concentration of the active substances.

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.

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.
