AHCC 500 mg - 60 Vcaps
  • Immune Support
  • Mushroom Mycelia Extract
  • Supports Healthy Natural Killer (NK) Cell Function
  • Vegetarian Product

AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a proprietary extract produced from specially cultivated and hybridized mushrooms.  According to extensive research in humans, as well as numerous non-clinical studies, AHCC supports immune system function through its effects on macrophages and NK (Natural Killer) Cells.  NK cells and the intercellular mediators they produce are critical for the maintenance of healthy cell cycle function.  AHCC has also been shown to possess antioxidant properties, and supports healthy liver function.

When it comes to cancer prevention and treatment, your body's first defense is your best, and the Natural Killer cells, may hold the key to the growth and spread of cancers. First discovered in the 1980's, NK cells are recognized as the immune system's front-line defense against cancer, viruses and other pathogens. In healthy individuals, NK cells routinely kill cancers while tumors are microscopic and before they are detectable.

Increasing the number and activity of NK cell function and supporting the immune system's front-line defense has become one of the most promising avenues of cancer treatment and prevention. There have been many published scientific studies showing that the use of AHCC can increase NK cell cancer killing function by several hundred times.  Other benefits of using AHCC, as experienced by a majority of cancer patients in human clinical trials, is substantial improvement in the functioning of macrophages, another type of white blood cell that clears debris from cell damage, directly attacks disease causing cells, and displays antigens which stimulate antibody production by B-cell white blood cells.
