AHCC is one of my favorite immune enhancing products for my clients and for myself. AHCC is a mushroom extract supplement that is cultured with enzymes, concentrated and freeze dried. This product is a mixture of polysaccharides, amino acids, lipids and minerals. As a Clinical Nutritionist for over 15 years, I recommend this Japanese “Superfood” for clients needing support for health issues including: chronic viruses, cancer, liver problems, mood support and just overall well being. Although this product has been studied on both humans and animals I think that the full extent of its value for human health has yet to be discovered and documented. It is believed that it may increase macrophage activity, natural killer cell function and enhance cytokine production. I read that oncologists in Japan regularly use AHHC to treat their cancer patients along with other more conventional methods of treatment and the results are promising.
