Mushroom Mycelia Extract for Immune System Support
AHCC® (active hexose correlated compound) is a potent immune support formula containing patented AHCC® - an extract composed of polysaccharides (primarily oligosaccharides), amino acids, lipids, and minerals, derived from fungi in the Basidiomycetes family (a class of mushrooms).
The immune benefits of mushrooms appear to be largely tied to a naturally occurring polysaccharide called alpha glucan - which has been shown to support and promote both innate and adaptive immune function. Through innovative biotechnology, a bioavailable form of mushroom polysaccharides/alpha glucan, and other micronutrients called AHCC® was developed.
In vivo and human clinical trials have shown that AHCC supports both innate and adaptive immune responses by promoting the production/activity of cytokines, white blood cells, T cells, and dendritic cells.
The most pertinent research-backed benefits of supplementation with AHCC® may include:
- Support immune health
- Support cardiovascular function
- Promote liver health
- Support for healthy inflammatory response
