Product Notes:

The principal applications for AHCC approved by Health Canada include use for immune system support, healthy inflammatory response, and normal cell production and differentiation. 

AHCC® (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a proprietary extract produced from the mycelia (the thread-like 'root' of a mushroom or its spores) of specially-cultivated and hybridized mushrooms in Japan, where it is a popular alternative medicine. Its active ingredients include acetylated alpha-glucan, for optimal bioavailability.

Some research suggests AHCC might be able to help prevent certain types of cancers brought on by HPV, since AHCC appears to be able to eradicate some types of human papillomavirus. AHCC might also be able to increase Natural Killer (NK) cells' activities in fighting off infections and blocking tumour growth. There have also been animal studies showing it can help reduce the side effects or help the body respond to Candida albicans during chemotherapy. AHCC has also been shown to help support liver function.
