AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a patented formulation produced from several types of Basidiomycetes family mushrooms, including Shiitake. These mushrooms are uniquely grown in rice bran extract.
AHCC was developed in Japan in 1989, and most of the studies with AHCC supplements have been conducted in Japan where it is considered a super food. Many beneficial qualities of mushrooms can be traced to the special polysaccharides they contain. Polysaccharides are large, chain-like molecules built from many smaller sugar molecules. Certain polysaccharides in mushrooms have been widely used for their immune-supporting properties.
As a result of extensive research in humans and numerous non-clinical studies, AHCC has been shown to support immune system functions through its effects on macrophages and NK (Natural Killer) Cells. NK cells are critical for the maintenance of healthy cell cycle function. AHCC has also been shown to possess outstanding antioxidant properties, and can help to support healthy liver functions.
