Ingredients & Description
AHCC(R) (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a proprietary compound produced by cultivation and enzymatic modification of several species of mushroom mycelia, including shiitake, grown in rice bran extract. Considered a superfood supplement in Japan, AHCC has been researched extensively for its immune enhancement properties.
According to human and animal research, AHCC may significantly increase Natural Killer (NK) Cell activity. AHCC may also increase macrophage activity, enhance cytokine production, and support the healthy functioning of the liver as well as act as an antioxidant.
AHCC(R) is a registered trademark of Amino Up Chemical Co., Sapporo, Japan.

AHCC may significantly increase natural killer (NK) cell, macrophage and cytokine activity. It may also support healthy liver function, and act as an antioxidant. Some scientific evidence suggests consumption of selenium and antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.Source Naturals AHCC is one of the most powerful ways to address Immunity, a key SystemiCare™ deep metabolic system that is crucial for optimal health.AHCC (active hexose correlated compound) is a rich source of polysaccharides (beta glucan 1,3 and activated hemicellulose) and glycoproteins, plus amino acids and minerals. It is produced by enzymatic modification of several mushrooms, including shiitake, and derived from organically cultivated mushroom mycelia (the rich pre-mushroom stage, a network of fibrous filaments plus the medium it lives on and uses for fuel). Its low molecular weight makes AHCC easier to absorb. AHCC has been well-researched in Japan, where hundreds of hospitals and clinics recommend it for immune maintenance, and its sales exceed $200 million dollars per year.
