Mushroom powder -
Which is the right one for your animal?
How to keep track of the big differences in quality.
An important principle of mycotherapy is that just like every human being, every animal is always considered in its wholeness of body, mind and soul. The MykoTroph approach to the use of vital mushrooms is therefore also based on the philosophy of wholeness, i.e. the use of the whole mushroom with all its valuable ingredients.
Thousands of ingredients are contained in the mushroom powder from the whole mushroom. They all influence the animal organism and support each other in their effect. Almost all life processes are due to enzyme reactions. There are enzymes that the body can produce itself and those that have to be ingested with food. In total, the various metabolic processes are influenced by more than 5,000 different enzymes and the vitamins and minerals that support them.
Mushroom powder from the whole mushroom is rich in minerals, vitamins and trace elements and contains other valuable ingredients such as triterpenes, polysaccharides and glycoproteins.

Vital mushrooms contain a balanced proportion of potassium and phosphorus as well as calcium and magnesium. They also contain trace elements such as copper and iron, and especially selenium. Vital mushrooms are also rich in vitamins, especially of the B group (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12) as well as vitamins D and E. Some also contain vitamins A and C; however, only in small amounts.
The triterpenes belong to the most effective ingredients of the vital mushrooms. They are predominantly found in the fruiting body, mainly in the lamellae and spores of the mature mushroom cap. Triterpenes can have anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, cholesterol- and blood pressure-lowering and antitumoral effects.
The polysaccharides (ß-glycans) belong to the family of long-chain carbohydrates. Several studies have shown that a mixture of different polysaccharides has a stronger effect on the immune system. The higher the molecular weight and the more branched the structure, the greater their antitumour effect.
Chitin is broken down by the enzyme chitinase, which is found in the animal body, and converted to N-acetylglucosamine. In young and healthy animals, the body itself produces enough glucosamine to keep the joints functional. In older animals, glucosamine is no longer produced in sufficient quantities and should be supplied daily.
The precondition for preserving all these valuable ingredients in a mushroom powder preparation is a freshly harvested and gentle drying of the mushrooms at low temperatures. At these temperatures, the heat-sensitive ingredients – such as the enzymes, vitamins and proteins – of the vital mushrooms are preserved!
Nature gives us everything we need to keep our animals healthy. Mushroom powder from the whole mushroom is the most natural and, from a holistic point of view, most valuable form of taking vital mushrooms. Our many years of experience have shown that this approach offers many advantages. We recommend vital mushroom powder from the whole mushroom. It is important that the vital mushrooms are grown in Germany in a natural and certified organic way and are gently processed into vital mushroom powder immediately after harvesting.
