The mixture of vital Reishi and Hericium mushrooms and Chinese herbs is based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine to clear energy blockages, which according to Chinese medicine prevent almost all diseases. It is a condition we would call stress somatisation.
The MycoSomat recipe is based on the Xiao Yao San traditional Chinese medicine recipe,however, it is adapted to the imbalances of modern man. See publicly available sources for more information.

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. You can view these tests for reishi here, here, here, for hericium here, here, here. You can view the Analysis Certificate here, here.
MycoSomat is based on traditional Chinese medicine principles. It balances the effects of vital mushrooms and Chinese herbs. Although the mixture is based on the traditional Xiao Yao San recipe, it is adapted to the imbalances related to the high stress load that modern times place on people.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, the Gan system (wood, Liver) can be blocked and subsequently heated due to stress and excessive emotions. This blockade can cause further stagnations in various parts of the body. We describe it as stress somatisation. Stress somatisation means the transmission of mental tension to different parts of the body. A person suffering from long-term or severe stress often begins to feel various pressures or feelings of anxiety, especially on the front of the body – Adam’s apple, distress or pressure on the chest, need for deep breathing and sighing, pressure in the solar plexus, around the stomach, gallbladder or intestines. In women, various menstrual pains are common somatisation.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, almost every disease is preceded by the formation of an energy block somewhere in the body. The energy cluster is caused by displaced emotions, according to the motto – consciousness is in the mind, emotions in the body. Displaced emotions give rise to various pains, anxieties, vague feelings, which form the basis of physical illnesses, especially of an autoimmune nature.
According to Chinese medicine, the mixture also has a strong An Shen effect. Despite strengthening Xin (Heart), it harmonises Shen, the soul. In other words, we could say that the mixture can bring our psyche back into balance. Herbs such as Suan Zao Ren (jujube) and He Huan Pi (sensitive mimosa) are largely involved in this effect, as well as the Reishi and Hericium mushrooms.
The first and necessary stage is that we boil quality dried herbs and mushrooms for 30 minutes in water under high pressure. This is a traditional production method, and it is particularly important because that is the only method of carrying out the complete interconnection of the active ingredients in the individual ingredients. The theory of Chinese phytotherapy says that boiling creates new active ingredients. In the second phase, the extraction process begins, which increases the concentration of active ingredients.

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.
