Quality of Life Labs

As someone who has type 1 diabetes and thyroid disease, I definitely have constant concerns about my health and especially the strength of my immune system. I had recently read some articles about AHCC and was very intrigued by the claims.

Kinoko Gold AHCC

Active Hexose Correlated Compound

Active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) is a supplement from Japan that has been getting a lot of attention lately. It is a functional food derived from medicinal shiitake mushrooms which has been shown to have immune system enhancing abilities along with anti-inflammatory properties and other healing features. Over 25 human clinical studies help support the use of AHCC. A recent clinical study from Michigan State University shows that AHCC enhances the power of the seasonal flu shot, making it even more effective against this potentially deadly virus.

Having a strong immune system is key to fighting those pesky colds and flu that get so many of us down this time of year. Not only that but that same strong immune system protects our bodies from many serious and chronic diseases such as hepatitis C, arthritis, heart disease, autoimmune diseases and cancers. There are so many key components to developing and maintaining a healthy immune systems like adequate sleep, healthy diet and exercise but natural supplements can give it that extra boost to keep you strong and healthy!

I have taken AHCC for a month now and I have to say that both of my children have had colds and I never got one! This is a huge deal for me because I usually will get what ever someone in my family has. I am pretty sensitive to medications and supplements and have had no side effects from AHCC. I definitely plan to continue taking AHCC and hope it helps to keep my cold and flu free through the winter and spring months!

Suggested Dosages

Dosage range is between 1-3 grams per day. This equates to 1-3 bottles per month (60 capsules of 500mg). AHCC should be taken in divided doses on an empty stomach (30 minutes before meals or 2 hours after meals) for optimal absorption. For example, when taking 3 grams per day, take 3 capsules 30 minutes before breakfast and 3 before dinner. While the therapeutic dose is 3 grams per day, the maintenance dose is only 1 gram per day.
