Being an avid big-wave surfer, I travel the world in search of world-class surf. That said, I pass through many time zones and
often surf in very cold water. I used to get sick all the time. A friend told me about AHCC and its immune benefits. I began taking AHCC a couple of years ago and haven’t been sick since. That stuff is awesome!”

“AHCC is a promising immune booster. Based on the current published research, there is obviously some buzz in the wellness space on Active Hexose Correlated Compound. The impact of boosting liver function in terms of boosting your body’s own natural ability to detoxify itself, cannot be touted enough.”

“Since I began taking AHCC a few years ago, I cannot remember the last time I had a cold or even a tickle in my throat. My immune system is much stronger. And, most importantly, it is stronger in a natural way!”

I love AHCC. I haven’t had so much as a sniffle since I started taking it regularly. And frankly, now the bedroom is a place to play rather than recover.

As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, I was extremely motivated to find an herbal solution to augment my mother’s treatment as well as bolster both of our immune systems. After rigorously investigating available avenues, I concluded that AHCC was the best option. I am happy to report that we are both healthy—and it is 14 years later!

“As a research scientist in both academia as well as the human and animal industries, I would highly recommend AHCC and would do so over any other nutraceutical on the market for modulating and keeping the immune system strong and functioning for overall health.

“Studies indicate that AHCC supports the immune system by increasing the production of the body’s ‘natural killer cells,’ whose function is to destroy abnormal cells and invading organisms in the body. I recommend AHCC to my patients for both immune support and liver health. The science is undeniable.”

My husband and I started taking AHCC at the same time I joined Maypro. Since then, neither of us has had a cold, our blood pressure has lowered, the pressure in my eyes has lowered (I am borderline glaucoma but do not have to take meds) and our cholesterol levels continue to be excellent. My husband swears it has even “cured” the arthritis he had in his thumb. He is an enthusiastic believer and has even convinced some of his friends to start using AHCC.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995 and am currently cancer free. Three years ago Dr. Kempf recommended that I started taking six grams of AHCC daily to help me maintain a strong immune system. AHCC has increased my NK killer cells and keeps me healthy. I am now down to a maintenance dose of just two grams a day.

I have a good friend who is currently going through the same bout with cancer that I did. She asked me what I would recommend if I could suggest only one remedy–without any hesitation, I told her about AHCC.

My name is Karen Rydeen-Kaska and my husband has stage IV Renal Cell Carcinoma.

About 3 ½ yrs ago he had blood in his urine and went to the doctor. They found that he had almost a football size tumor on his right kidney. Within one week he was in surgery to remove it (along with the kidney). They thought they got it all. About 2 yrs later he went back to the doctor and found that the cancer had metastized through out his body (7 tumors: 2 in pelvis, one at base of spine on L2 and 4 in lymph nodes in his chest). They estimated that Chris had only about a year to live.

Hi Dan,

I wanted to let you know that my mother was supposed to start chemo on December 21st. Prior to that I gave my mother two bottles of AHCC and one bottle of Mushroom Glyconutrients. We decided to seek another opinion and that doctor said that after he tested my mother again she did not have any tumors on her right or left lung and showed no signs of any active cancer. She is going to be monitored every three months to see if anything changes. Her oncologist said that he is completely baffled and has never seen something like this in all his years of being an oncologist. My mother continues to take AHCC.

My husband is 45 years old. He was diagnose with stage 4 lung cancer Feb, 16 2005, Joe started taking AHCC 1 week later, 3 weeks before his first treatment started, he has had 8 chemo treatments and 30 radiation treatments. Joe has had no side effects of any kind, when they did his CAT scan on April 20; this scan was just for radiation adjustment for treatment no die involved, it shoed that the tumors in his lungs had a 50% reduction already.

We were told by the Radiologist not to take the AHCC that it would interfere with the success of the treatments. Joe’s thoughts were “I’m already in stage 4 what could it hurt” so he continued. I thank God every day that he continued to take it.
