About Us

We are dedicated to bringing you the finest mushroom products, based on the latest scientific research, for optimum supplementation.

Each mushroom is unique and so each MycoPro product is unique. Produced in the UK, MycoPro‘s comprehensive range of 12 single mushrooms and 4 combination products use selected mushrooms from leading growers around the world and are formulated to deliver the full health benefits of each species.

For some mushrooms, such as Cordyceps, extracellular levels of important components, in this case Cordycepin and other nucleoside derivatives, are particularly high and so we use mycelial biomass to capture these compounds. In others, such as Coriolus (Trametes versicolor), Agaricus brasiliensis (formerly Agaricus blazei), Enokitake (Flammulina velutipes) and Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), levels of the immunologically important polysaccharides (beta-glucans and proteoglycans) are low in the mycelial biomass and so we supplement it with polysaccharide-rich hot-water extracts.

In the jelly mushrooms: Wood Ear (Auricularia auricula) and Snow Fungus(Tremella fuciformis) research shows the polysaccharides to be responsible for their activity and extracts form the basis of these products in the MycoPro line.

In other mushrooms traditionally taken as aqueous decoctions or teas, such as Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) and Chaga (Inonotus obliquus), triterpenoid and other phenolic compounds play a large part in their unique properties and extracts are again preferred, in accordance with traditional use.

Research on Maitake (Grifola frondosa) has shown the efficacy of combinations of fruiting body and purified beta-glucan and MycoPro Maitake uses this proven combination.

In mushrooms such as Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus) and Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus), the fruiting body and mycelium have been shown to contain different active compounds and so for these mushrooms we combine mushroom fruiting body with mycelial biomass.

As well as single mushroom products, the MycoPro line includes a number of specially formulated mushroom nutrition products:

PS Complex – Mushroom polysaccharide extract combination.
IS-7 – Mushroom polysaccharide extracts together with Cordyceps biomass and green tea extract for long term support.
Reishi/Cordyceps Complex – Reishi extract with Cordyceps biomass for lifestyle support.
Red Yeast Rice Complex – Standardised Monascus purpureus with Shiitake mushroom and CoQ10 to help maintain healthy
cholesterol levels.
