About the product-+

Ideal composition, maximum strength and efficacy

Polyporus (Umbrella Polypore, Grifola umbellata, Polyporus umbellatus) contains a lot of very active substances, for example vitamins and minerals, polysaccharides - beta-glucans, ergosterols - polyporusterons A−E, ergostenones, steroids, anthraquinones, nucleosides and D-mannitol.

Thanks to biofermentation and subsequent processing with the method of hot-water extraction, we offer high-quality extracts from polyporus in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:

  • minimal 30% polysaccharides (it is 33-34 %)

About Polyporus

Polyporus is a relatively rare fungus belonging to the Polyporaceae family, it’s considered to be a vulnerable mushroom in our country (the level of endagering according to the IUCN Red List). Polyporus can be found near tree roots and stumps, from which it takes nutrients. Sporocarps of Polyporus are up to 40 cm wide, made up of multiple branched, scaly caps. Polyporus , besides being a tasty edible mushroom are also suitable for  pickling and has also been a part of traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. In ”Western countries”, Polyporus was first described in 1801 by Christian H. Persoon. Polyporus contains a lot of very active substances, for example vitamins and minerals, polysaccharides - beta-glucans, ergosterols - polyporusterons A−E, ergostenones, steroids, anthraquinones, nucleosides and D-mannitol.



  • 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.


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.

  • when buying over 8,000 CZK, you receive an immediate discount of 10% from the total purchase (not applicable to wholesale)


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.

I have been struggling with recurrent bladder inflammations for 5 years. Anyone, who has ever experienced this illness, knows how unpleasant and restrictive it is. Doctors always prescribed antibiotics, but they had the effect of weakening my immune system, and I didn’t want to take this chemicals anymore. I searched for a natural product and I found your site. Mr. Schirlo recommended the Polyporus mushroom, I have only been taking it for two months, but I'm very happy with it and I can confirm that it’s effective.

Oldřich V., Karviná

It was my daughter, who recommended Polyporus and Reishi to me, as she is interested in Chinese medicine. I suffer from high blood pressure, I take the capsules regularly. My previously high pressure has decreased, so I'm satisfied with the capsules.

Sylva V., Olomouc

I have read that the Polyporus mushroom drains moisture from the body, so I started using it for swellings and I can confirm that it works.

Petr V., Prague

Hello, I have bladder cancer, thank you for answering my questions and for advising me to use the Polyporus mushroom. I feel much better.

Nela P., Dobříš

I was impressed by the effects of medicinal mushrooms and so I decided to take 2 Polyporus mushroom tablets a day according to the recommended dosage. I'm especially thrilled about the effect on skin quality and hair growth. I can confirm that the hair grows faster and the skin looks healthier. I'm thinking about trying out other medicinal mushrooms as well.

Gabriela K.

I take Polyporus and Reishi because of water retention problems. Not only do I feel better, but I've also lost a few kilos in a few months. I am satisfied with your products.

Eliška Š., Vlašim

I have been experiencing repeated vaginal discharge for several years, I tried to solve it in many ways, but none have proven to be effective. I have read more information about the Polyporus mushroom and that it eliminates food for mycoses due to its moisture-absorbing ability. I am very satisfied with its effects and I have finally rid myself of this unpleasant problem. I recommend your shop to everyone.

Dan B.

I take Polyporus together with Reishi for blood pressure reduction. After regularly taking the capsules, my high blood pressure has really decreased.

Kristýna H., Prague

First I would like to praise your approach to customers. You willingly advised me and answered my questions. I have been interested in traditional Chinese medicine for some time, so I wanted to try medical mushrooms first hand. I started taking Polyporus because of swelling. Its effect on water retention is really miraculous. I can only recommend it.

Mohu potvrdit účinky choroše na otoky. Užívám ho spolu s Cordycepsem. Měla jsem otoky hlavně kolem kotníků, ale i v obličeji a někdy i lýtka. Otoky po cca 3 měsících užívání skoro nemám. A hlavně se cítím mnohem lépe.
