AHCC and Cancer: What Are The Studies Showing?
Cancer is a devastating disease and the focus of constant research. AHCC, an immune system-enhancing supplement derived from healing mushrooms, is gaining increasing attention for its potential role in lessening the effects of chemotherapy and supporting people with various types of cancer.
In healthy people, AHCC may be able to modulate the immune system and improve the activity, number, and performance of crucial components of the immune system, such as NK cells and T cells.
As the focus of over 100 published studies and counting, scientists are looking into how AHCC can benefit people with specific conditions, including cancer. Read on to get a full breakdown of just a few of these promising studies.
AHCC AND CANCER: THE RESEARCH
Can AHCC be used in the treatment of head and neck cancer patients?
Can AHCC improve the prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients following surgical treatment?
Does AHCC have an effect on castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC)?
Does AHCC have an effect on patients with advanced breast cancer?
Does AHCC have an effect on patients with advanced liver cancer?
Does AHCC have an effect on patients with early stage prostate cancer?
Does AHCC have an effect on the survival rate of patients with gastric cancer or colon cancer?
Does AHCC have immunomodulatory and anticancer effects in cancer patients?
AHCC AND CHEMOTHERAPY: THE RESEARCH
Does AHCC alleviate the adverse events in the adjuvant chemotherapy of breast cancer patients?
Presented at the 20th International Congress on Nutrition and Integrative Medicine,
Does AHCC have a hematoimmunologic effect on cancer patients?
Does AHCC have an immunomodulating effect on cancer patients?
What effect does AHCC have on the reduction of adverse effects in advanced cancer patients on chemotherapy with weakened immune systems experiencing HHV-6 herpes virus infection and liver and blood toxicity?
What is the difference in chemotherapy treatment adverse effects and incidence in those receiving AHCC and those who didn’t?
As research continues, AHCC’s full potential in aiding people with cancer and/or people who are undergoing chemotherapy will be fully realized.
