Organically Grown in Australia

MYCRO is a farm. WE grow ALL of our mushrooms right here in Australia.

Reishi, often called Lingzhi, is one of our favourites to grow.

100% Fruiting Body

Just our mushrooms, dual-extracted, no funny business.

Dual-Extracted for Optimal Bio-Availability

Reishi is the oldest “functional mushroom”. There’s literature about its benefits dating back to the year 500AD. However, modern science is struggling to identify which of the 450 potentially beneficial compounds in Reishi are the ones working the magic.

Reishi contains many active compounds, including triterpenoids, polysaccharides, steroids, fatty acids, amino acids, nucleosides, proteins, and alkaloids.

For this reason, our Reishi extract has gone through a broad dual-extraction to extract as many different compounds as possible.

And as with our other extracts, we add mushroom fruiting body into the extract to make sure nothing is missed.

100% Australian Ingredients

  • Reishi (Ganoderma sp.) Fruiting Body (1000mg per 1ml)
  • Sugarcane spirit
  • Water

That's it. Mushroom, alcohol, water (and a whole-lot-of science).

We believe in full transparency, there's further descriptions below and we're always willing to answer any queries you might have.

  • Full Aussie
  • Full Spectrum
  • Full Transparency

Reishi, known as the quintessential “medicinal mushroom,” carries a legacy of wellness dating back in literature to 500 AD! This revered mushroom, celebrated through millennia, is a treasure trove of health benefits, containing over 450 potentially beneficial compounds. Despite the challenge modern science faces in pinpointing the exact sources of Reishi's efficacy, its rich composition of triterpenoids, polysaccharides, steroids, fatty acids, amino acids, nucleosides, proteins, and alkaloids speaks to its unparalleled holistic value.

Our 100% Australian-grown Reishi extract undergoes an extensive dual-extraction process designed to harness a broad spectrum of these active compounds, ensuring a potent and comprehensive blend. True to our meticulous standards, we enrich our extract with additional fruiting body, guaranteeing that no part of its natural goodness is left behind.

Crafted with the utmost care and precision, this extract is a testament to our dedication to offering the highest quality, 100% Australian-made products.

Make sure to read the drop-down sections above and below for more information on our farm, extractions and our mission to provide Australian's with a homegrown alternative to imported mushroom products.

What are the benefits of reishi mushrooms?

Due to current regulations around functional mushrooms, we sell our products as food and won't make health claims (the same reason we don't call them medicinal!).

But, a quick Google search will provide you with everything you'd like to know.

And remember, our extraction process focuses on the particular bioactive (good) compounds of reishi, meaning they're bioavailable to you (and your body can absorb them).

Why did MYCRO create this range?

Honestly, we were fed up.

Fed up of imported, substandard products with fancy marketing.

We know the power of mushrooms and wanted products for ourselves.

Our range isn't even better. It's incomparable. We've done things properly and set the standard so high.

MYCRO grows a range of gourmet mushrooms for supermarkets across WA and are industry leaders in functional mushroom growing.

We're the first and only Corydceps growers in Australia, we (humbly) believe we're the biggest Reishi farm, we grow a HEAP of Lion's Mane and we have a whole range of other functional mushrooms in our rotations (Turkey Tail, Maitake, Shiitake, Tremella, etc.).

We saw a gap in the market for 100% Australian grown mushroom products, produced by professionals and sold with full transparency.

No clever wording, no deception, just the best possible products we can produce.

What makes MYCRO different from other brands?

What happens when one of the top mushroom farms in the country brings on Australia's top extractionist? You get MYCRO, of course.

Add in Australia's pristine environment, clean inputs, the integrity of a farmer, the knowledge of a literal extractionist DOCTOR and no one's beating this team.

We're on a mission to set the international standard for mushroom extracts. These are the highest quality products we can produce. And we'll be constantly refining them.

How are your mushrooms grown?

By us! Did I mention that?

MYCRO is in Osborne Park in Western Australia. The farm is sealed off from the outside world and allows us to create a mushroom paradise.

A mushroom paradise consists of cool, fresh air and humidity. Like a forest. This environment is a continual balancing act powered by a heap of solar panels on our roof.

As for the organic "substrate" ingredients:

We use Western Australian hardwood sawdust. Our sawdust is a waste-product from a fancy furniture maker. The tree species can vary, but its always natural and has never been treated (the mushrooms wouldn't like that).

We add lupin hulls for a cellulose and nitrogen kick. This is how we get the huge clusters you'll see on our Instagram. Lupins are nitrogen-fixers, so they don't need fertiliser and thrive in dry sandy soils. WA is the largest producer of them in the world.

We steam sterilise the substrate blocks to remove anything that could compete with our mushrooms (molds, bacteria, other mushrooms) and then we add in some grain spawn (like a starter culture).

The next few weeks to months, depending on the species, involve moving the blocks from different rooms or "climates" to mimic their life in nature.

No pesticides, no fertilisers, no herbicides and certainly no fungicides are used at any point. Just some water to create humidity in the grow room.

The mushrooms have a great life and so do we getting to work in a very clean and cool environment.

Extract or Powder?

Our powders are:

  • Grown, dehydrated, milled and packed by us in Western Australia
  • Air dried for maximum nutrient preservation
  • 100% mushroom fruiting body
  • No clever wording, just mushrooms

Powders can be used in cooking or steeped in hot water to produce teas. Steeping works as an extraction process to make water-soluable benefical compounds (the good stuff) bioavailabe to your body

Our extracts are:

  • All of the above
  • Plus they've been dual-extracted by Australia's only biomolecular extractionist working in this field (THE professional)

Dual-extraction involves a water extraction and an alcohol extraction. Some of the compounds we're after in mushrooms can't be extracted by water or by our bodies: terpenes (specifically, triterpenoids), sterols, and flavonoids.

We split our batches of mushrooms into two: half is water extracted, half is alcohol extracted, we then mix in (homogenise) mushroom fruiting body to offer the most full-spectrum product we can.

Our extraction process will be evolving every batch; we'll include updates of how we're improving things in your order.

We believe in full-transparency

We've got nothing to hide and everything to prove.

We work so effing hard and are super proud of our work.

On Instagram we'll show you our commercial yields of the finest mushrooms, the daily ins-and-outs of mushroom farming, we'll splurt mycological knowledge at you and we'll even show when things go wrong (which is usually daily!).

Australian Made from 100% Australian Ingredients

There's too much 'clever' wording out there ("Australian Owned" and "Di Tao" being prime examples).

Our reishi are organically grown in Australia, extracted in Australia, packaged in Australia.

You'll never find imported ingredients in our products, that would go against everything we stand for as Aussie farmers.

What's MYCRO Rewards?

We're really proud of our products.
