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.

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.
