MYYCO is a registered California benefit corporation. 100% of profits from every MYYCO sale are donated to 501(c)(3) non-profit medical research centers investigating and furthering the groundbreaking therapeutic use of the psychoactive compound found in medicinal mushrooms for combating ailments such as PTSD, Alzheimer’s, treatment-resistant depression, addiction, and end-of-life anxiety and depression. 

In 2019, the FDA classified the psychoactive chemical compound found in certain strains of medicinal mushrooms as a “breakthrough therapy” to treat severe treatment-resistant depression. This compound is also being researched as a therapy for a variety of different ailments including Alzheimer’s, PTSD and end-of-life anxiety and depression. As a certified benefit corporation, MYYCO is partnered with several high profile research centers that are working on this exciting new frontier of therapy. Many of these research centers are preparing for phase 3 trials that could quickly lead to publicly available medicines. These phase 3 trials are expensive (upwards of $20 million) and the entire process of introducing a new medicine into the pharmaceutical marketplace can cost close to $2 billion. MYYCO donates all profits to the 501(c)(3) research centers working to bring the healing power of mushrooms to those who need it.

Mushroom liquid culture requires a liquid “nutrient solution” that the early-stage mycelium can feed on while they are inside our syringes. The young mycelium is suspended in this liquid nutrient solution. Some folks use single ingredient liquid culture recipes, using just honey or cane sugar as their nutrient solution, but after years of testing, we’ve found that the more variety, the better. Through years of trial and error, we’ve developed a simple liquid culture recipe that we believe is the most effective and conducive to creating healthy, robust mycelium. Each of our ingredients provides an easy and digestible food source for the young mycelium and the variety helps create resilient and adaptable mycelium. We use: organic cane sugar, light malt extract, peptone, karo and distilled water. Importantly, all of our ingredients in our liquid culture recipe are certified food-grade. That makes for some happy and well-fed mycelium!
