Quality of Life Labs Kinoko Gold AHCC, 500 mg, 60 Vcaps

A fermented extract of hybridized medicinal mushroom mycelia (roots), AHCC is one of the world’s most researched specialty immune supplements, supported by over 20 human clinical studies.

Studies on AHCC have been conducted at some of the finest research institutions worldwide, including highly regarded Ivy League universities and major health centers.

Unlike most other medicinal mushroom extracts, AHCC has a very low molecular weight of just 5,000 daltons and is rich in alpha-glucans, increasing absorption and efficacy.

Because of its superior supporting research, AHCC is used by an estimated 1,000 clinics worldwide. It works by stimulating our immune system to better protect itself from foreign invaders.

AHCC has been shown to:

Maintain optimal NK cell activity

Enhance cytokine production

Promote optimal T-cell activity

Promote optimal macrophage activity

Increase the activity & number of dendritic cells

Kinoko AHCC has been shown to be effective in preventing and healing many disease states. Thanks to its early activation of the immune response, it makes us less susceptible to infections and decreases the severity of infections.

Research has also found a shortened recovery time and increased rate to clear foreign invaders and overcome infections. It can also be beneficial to take anytime we are going through a stressful period.

Life situations like school exams, work related stress, relationship problems or losing a loved one, etc. It can also be of great benefit for anyone suffering from various diseases that deplete the immune system, such as cancer.  It is a product for anyone who could benefit from an immune system boost.


  If I am allergic to mushrooms can I take AHCC?

Allergies to mushrooms are most often associated with exposure to mushroom spores. These spores originate in the top of the mushroom, called the fruiting body. However, AHCC is derived from the mycelia, or the root of the mushroom, which does not contain spores. In addition, as part of the manufacturing process, the raw material is subjected to a fermentation process that breaks down the high molecular weight molecules that are very tough to digest, into low molecular weight compounds. This process further lowers any allergenic potential. Many people who believe they are allergic to mushrooms take AHCC successfully. However, if you are concerned, please check with a healthcare professional that specializes in natural products or begin taking AHCC very slowly. This can be done by starting with a quarter of a capsule on the tip of your tongue and if you don't experience itching in your mouth or other signs of allergy, work your way up to 2 to 6 capsules per day over a period of several days.

AHCC®  is a patented, low-molecular weight medicinal mushroom extract developed from the mycelia (or underground portion) of a particular subspecies of Lentinula edodes. Supported by more than 20 human clinical studies, AHCC prompts an early activation of the immune system.* It works by enhancing the production of cytokines (immune-signaling molecules) and increasing the activity of certain white blood cells, including NK cells, DC cells, T-cells, and macrophages.*
