AHCC supports immune system function through its ability to enhance macrophage and NK (Natural Killer) Cell Activity, according to extensive research in humans, as well as numerous non-clinical studies. AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a proprietary extract produced from specially cultivated and hybridized mushrooms (Basidocymetes). NK cells and the intercellular mediators they produce are critical for the maintenance of healthy cell cycle function. AHCC has also been shown to possess antioxidant properties and support healthy liver function.

Contains no sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg or preservatives.

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by good purchase very good for the immune system February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AHCC to maintain Immunity I felt this product work within a few days of using it. Unfortunately it can't improve the condition my body was diagnosed with (CLL), I recommend this to anyone who is healthy and wants to stay that way. The pricing by Swanson was very good. But if you do your homework, you can find it cheaper. June 6, 2013
