Our Shiitake is grown on organic substrate. This substrate is based on a mixture of sawdust, organic wheat bran, cane sugar and natural gypsum.The part of the mushroom we use is fruitbody.
Shiitake is very rich in the necessaryessential amino acids, minerals and B vitamins and also provitamin D2.
Thanks to biofermentation and subsequent processing with the method of hot-water extraction, we offer high-quality extracts from Shiitake in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:
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.
When your order is over 2,000 CZ, shipping is free.
For larger orders, we have discounts:
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.
I‘ve had weak immunity since my childhood. This resulted in a number of illnesses, I only needed to get a chill and I was sick. I tried to deal with repeated illness via the natural path and bumped into the Shiitake mushroom. I was impressed with its properties, I read that it‘s anti-viral and anti-bacterial. I began to enjoy it with the Cordyceps mushroom, and I quickly felt the change. I don’t get ill anymore, and overall I feel better.
I ordered Shiitake capsules as a supportive supplement to treat cancer. I don’t suffer from so many chemotherapy side effects, so I'll continue to use.
I take Shiitake due to osteoporosis, supposedly to relieve the disease, I feel better after a month of use.
Mr. Schirlo recommended that I use Shiitake due to high cholesterol. I didn‘t want pills, so I decided to try Shiitake and I'm very happy. With regular recommended dosage, my cholesterol has actually reduced.
Sometimes I use the Shiitake mushroom in the kitchen, I like its special taste. I was attracted by its positive effects, so I started taking the capsules. Previously, I was quite prone to colds, and when someone had a cold in the family, I immediately caught it. Thanks to Shiitake, I‘m no longer sick and I feel better.
Hello, I work as a manager for a large company. However, it‘s often associated with fatigue, I often go home and immediately have to go to bed. My wife is interested in traditional Chinese medicine and suggested that I try medicinal mushrooms. So I ordered the Shiitake mushroom, which is also used in Chinese and Japanese cuisine. The effects are obvious and I have to say that I feel more energetic. I recommend it.
I began using Shiitake due to high blood pressure. I believe it really takes it on, so I ordered another pack.
I read on the Internet that Shiitake has an effect on acne. I was looking for someone offering mushroom and I came across MycoMedica. They advised me to use Shiitake along with the Polyporus mushroom, and I must say that I really can see improvement and I‘ve already tried everything.
I‘m treating my cholesterol, I started using 3 capsules a day. After a month and a half my cholesterol levels dropped, so I can recommend it.
