This is why we want to look closer at how we can stimulate these NK cells. While it is important to not over stimulate the body when we’re dealing with autoimmune disease, we do know that certain immunomdulators can have a positive impact in putting autoimmune disease into remission.
As you know AHCC helps to increase the response/amount of your NK cells
and is known to have a positive impact on the immune system. Studies have shown that AHCC can increase NK cell activity to normal levels in people who have a depressed level of NK cells.
In looking specifically at autoimmune disease, AHCC was observed to deliver a protective effect in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes, the standard animal model of type-1 diabetes. Treatment of rats with STZ led to increased blood glucose, decreased serum insulin, and an increase in serum aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase levels. Daily supplementation with AHCC for 1 week prior to and 2 weeks after STZ treatment significantly decreased or normalized STZ-induced changes in blood glucose, serum insulin, serum aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase levels.
To learn more about this research and other studies done to learn how AHCC can positively impact autoimmune disease, read our latest scientific research paper titled: Immune Modulator for Autoimmune Disease?
In this article, we take a much deeper scientific look at how AHCC works in your body and how it can help you if you’re suffering from an autoimmune disease.
