A.O.R. AHCC

A Powerful Immune-Booster from Shiitake Mushrooms
Promotes normal cellular growth and differentiation
Enhances immune cell production and helps control infections


Protects the liver
Active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) is a natural compound extracted from shiitake mushrooms. It was developed in Japan in 1989, and has since been used to improve the immunity of over 100,000 patients, and has been studied in over 50 human clinical trials. AHCC has the unique ability to stimulate the immune system, which is important in controlling inflammation and infection and regulating healthy cell growth.

AHCC is used alongside chemotherapy treatments in many Japanese hospitals for its immune supportive effects. The majority of studies have shown reduced side effects, increased quality of life and improved survival rates. Patients taking AHCC reported less nausea, vomiting and hair loss, and AHCC improved their body weight and appetite during chemotherapy. The immune effects of AHCC are not limited to cancer patients and have been applied to microbial infections as well. AOR’s AHCC is a powerful, evidence based option for people that want to support their immune function, combat stubborn infections and for patients undergoing certain types of chemotherapy.

Background

When it comes to health, we all understand the importance of our immune system. Active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) is an oligosaccharide extracted from mushrooms grown in rice bran. It was developed in Japan in 1989 and it has since been used to improve the immunity of over 100 000 patients. AHCC has shown promise for severe immunodeficiencies, in infections, to reduce inflammation and to improve the body’s response to stress.

AHCC and the Immune System

AHCC is remarkable because it has the ability to stimulate the immune system. Oral supplementation with AHCC increases the production by immune cells of at least two protein messengers. These proteins promote the production of macrophages, T cells and natural killer (NK) cells. Immune cells are important for health in general but are specifically involved with the control of infection.


Research

AHCC and Immunodeficiency

Through its influence on the immune system, AHCC may help preserve immunity in those whose defense system is slowly being infiltrated by viruses. Preliminary trials with AHCC have given encouraging results in certain life threatening viral infections.

AHCC and Infection

Infections are caused by the invasion and the multiplication of microorganisms in the body. We carry 500 to 1000 different species of bacteria throughout our body. Adequate immunity is therefore crucial in preventing infection. Several experiments confirmed AHCC’s competence for the control of infections.

AHCC and the Liver

An excess of toxins can damage the liver. Trials have demonstrated that AHCC protects the liver and improves hepatic function.

AHCC and Inflammation

It was reported that patients taking AHCC to prevent the recurrence of abnormal growths had significant improvements in rheumatoid arthritis. AHCC was also effective at diminishing inflammation in animal studies. It is thought that AHCC reduces inflammation by modulating the immune system and by improving fat metabolism.

AHCC and Other Health Conditions

Some studies have shown that AHCC promoted healthy blood sugar balance. In addition, AHCC appears to be an adaptogen and may help relieve stress.
