With a reduction in size of this key component, AHCC has a powerful immune-stimulating action that ordinary mushrooms and other mushroom supplements do not contain.
AHCC is currently the world’s most researched specialty immune supplement and is supported by over 20 human clinical studies. It has had over 30 papers published in PubMed-indexed journals and there have been more than 100 pre-clinical and in vitro studies done on its effects.
Further, it is currently Japan’s leading alternative cancer therapy, used in hundreds of cancer clinics throughout Aisa, and is used in over 700 clinics as a standard preventative given to all incoming patients to reduce the risk of hospital infections.
Safety and Side Effects
In addition to being tested on patients with a wide range of varying diseases, AHCC has been tested on healthy volunteers; it showed positive effects even in those who were not sick, boosting their natural immunity as measured by dendritic cell
count (which initiate and shape the body’s natural immune response).
Numerous safety studies have been conducted on AHCC and with an estimated 100,000 people worldwide taking AHCC, no adverse side effects have come to light, especially in those people taking other medications. AHCC is one of the very few nutritional supplements that has been cleared for drug-to-drug interaction so that doctors, patients, and healthy individuals can be confident in its safety.
AHCC has never demonstrated any toxicity, even when used in excess of the amounts estimated to be fatal in animals.
