Let’s Get Cooking with Mushrooms
AHCC and Mushrooms
- The first component of AHCC is shiitake mushrooms. These mushrooms have a rich history of healing powers.
- The next ingredient is several hybrids from the Basidiomycotaphylum of fungi. AHCC uses the mycelia (the hair like root structures of the mushroom).
- The mycelia are cultured in rice bran extract, which has antiviral and immune system enhancing qualities.
- The end result of the carefully monitored manufacturing process is AHCC.
- Identification of the specific mushroom subspecies that creates an extract with superior NK cell activating power.
- The cell culturing of the mycelia to ensure each batch is genetically identical to the original mother super-mushroom.
- The patented culturing process to improve absorption and clinical efficiency.
- The confirmation of mushroom identity through DNA pattern testing.
