onsidered a superfood supplement in Japan, AHCC® (active hexose correlated compound) is a patented, extensively researched dietary health supplement that facilitates optimal immune system function. It is obtained from the shiitake mushroom – well known for its immune-modulating activity – and is one of the world’s most researched specialty immune supplements. It is supported by over 100 published clinical studies and has been researched at more than 80 leading institutions worldwide.
In 1989, Japanese scientists discovered that by hybridising several mushrooms used in traditional healing, they could develop a natural compound that would give the body the ability to maintain “super immunity”. It has since been used to improve the immune health of over 100 000 patients.
According to human and animal research, AHCC® may significantly increase Natural Killer (NK) cell activity. It has the ability to stimulate the immune system, which is important in controlling inflammation and infection and regulating healthy cell growth. It may also increase macrophage activity, enhance cytokine production and support the healthy functioning of the liver, while also acting as an
The human body’s immune system is a highly sophisticated and complex defence system that guards the body against infections, toxins, as well as diseased and aberrant cells. Human survival is dependent on its optimal functioning. A compromised immune system leaves one susceptible to infections and other disease states. A healthy and appropriate immune response forms the cornerstone of overall health and the prevention of and recovery from many diseases. AHCC® is successfully used by clinicians worldwide who want to support patients to restore and maintain optimal immune system health.
Coyne Healthcare’s AHCC® health supplement is a powerful antioxidant that aggressively combats free radicals and thus boosts the immune system. Used by tens of thousands of healthy people worldwide, it is rich in alpha-glucans, which increase the compound’s absorption and efficacy.
