Reishi (ganoderma eller lingzhi mushroom) er en af de mest anvendte medicinske svampe. Dets vitaliserende effekt har været anvendt i kinesisk medicin i tusinder af år. Navnet betyder ”divine mushroom of immortality”.
Læs mere om kvaliteten here. Reishi is used in Chinese medicine to support vitality and defenses. It has significant adaptogenic effects.
Produktionsmetode (fra producenten):
Thanks to biofermentation and subsequent processing with the method of double extraction (first extracted with water and then with alcohol), we offer high-quality extracts from Reishi in the ideal active substances ratio for the best results:
- minimum 30 % polysaccharides (33-34 % in reality)
- minimum 4 % of triterpenes
Before processing, all the mushroom raw material we use to produce our mushroom products is tested for more than 500 species of known heavy metals, pesticides and microorganisms dangerous to humans in the German independent laboratory Agrolab. You can see these tests for Reishi here, here, here.
Om Reishi (fra producenten):
Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum, lingzhi mushroom) is a wood-decaying mushroom from the Polyporaceae family. We mostly find it on trunks of dead trees or stumps. Its sporocarps are semi-circular and usually have the diameter of 6−12 cm and they have a glossy lacquer layer, from which the mushroom’s Czech name (lesklokorka) is derived.
Reishi (ganoderma) has its home in Asia where it’s also called the”divine mushroom of immortality”. It’s an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine, which has been using it for more than 4,000 years. Reishi (ganoderma) is also mentioned in the basic work of Chinese medicine, in the Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor. It was so rare in those times that it was intended only for the emperor and his family. And it wasn’t only used in Chinese medicine, but also as a powerful talisman for happiness and protection from all evil. Monks in Taoist monasteries used Reishi (ganoderma) before meditation, for its ability to soothe the soul of Shen. It’s also used by Russian astronauts or Sherpas in the high Himalayan altitudes for its ability to regenerate and activate functions of the organism.
Reishi can activate immune responses and it contributes to maintaining a healthycirculatory system. At the same time, it helps toreduce cholesterol levels naturally. Reishi contains many bioactive substances, which make it unique. Reishi, besides vitamins, minerals, also includes a great amount of polysaccharides, beta glucans, ganoderans, and also steroids, cyclic esters – lactones, triterpenes, including ganoderic acid or lanostans, etc. We use 6-9 months old sporocarps for our production, as the concentration of active ingredients is at its highest at this age. In older mushrooms, the concentration of active ingredients is gradually decreasing and the effect is less efficient.

The foundations of MycoMedica stand on the following strong pillars: QUALITY – SAFETY – EFFICIENCY
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.
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.
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.
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.
