AHCC® Plus supplies a unique mushroom-derived extract called AHCC® combined with arabinogalactan from the Western Larch tree to provide an immune-supportive formula.

Mushrooms have always been an important part of Asian medicine and are known to contain numerous substances that help to support the immune system. AHCC® is a unique mushroom-derived extract designed to provide support to the immune system. Derived from a patented cultivation, enzymatic decomposition and freeze-drying process of several kinds of Basidiomycetes mushrooms, the active compound in AHCC® is an α−1,4 linked glucose oligosaccharide with a molecular weight less than 5,000 daltons. This oligosaccharide cannot be found in typical mushroom preparations. Beta-glucans, amino acids and minerals present in AHCC® may also play important roles in its immune-supportive properties. Scientific studies using AHCC® in animals and humans suggest that it has immunomodulating activity. ‡ Research indicates that AHCC® may serve a vital function in supporting the body’s natural defense mechanisms. AHCC® supports the functioning of the body and improves overall well-being. Studies have also demonstrated its important roles in helping support overall immune function, including during times of oxidative stress. ‡
