AHCC: What Are The Benefits
WHAT IS AHCC AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
- AHCC keeps natural killer (NK) cell activity at a healthy level. NK cells are in charge of patrolling the body and removing any potential predators and/or abnormal cells. As a white blood cell, AHCC also makes sure there are as many NK cells in the body as needed.
- AHCC supports a special type of white blood cells, called macrophages. These white blood cells engulf and ingest any debris or pathogens that may be floating around in the bloodstream.
- AHCC improves the performance of T cells, and therefore supports the adaptive immune response. T cells initiate the specific attacks that will eventually bring down invaders.
- AHCC increases the presence of dendritic cells in the body, and makes them more effective. Dendritic cells allow for the production of cytokines, and as a part of the innate immune response, help prepare the adaptive immune response.

MORE BENEFITS: WHAT ARE THE STUDIES SAYING ABOUT AHCC?
- Influenza virus (flu)
- Avian influenza virus (avian/bird flu)
- Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteria (pneumonia)
- Candida albicans fungus (yeast infection)
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria
- Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus bacteria (staph infection that cannot be treated with antibiotics)
- West Nile virus
- 66.1% of the control group experienced a recurrence of their cancer, while only 34.5% of the AHCC group had this same return.
- 79.6% of the AHCC group survived the ten years of the study, while only 53.2% of the control group survived.
