it comes to health, we all understand the importance of our immune
system. Active hexose correlated compound (AHCC) is an oligosaccharide
extracted from mushrooms grown in rice bran. It was developed in Japan
in 1989 and it has since been used to improve the immunity of over 100
000 patients. AHCC has shown promise for severe immunodeficiencies, for
hypertension, to reduce inflammation, to improve the body’s response to
stress, in infections, for diabetics and for hepatitis.
AHCC and the Immune System
AHCC is remarkable because it has the ability to stimulate the immune
system. Oral supplementation with AHCC increases the production by
immune cells of at least two protein messengers. These proteins promote
the production of macrophages, T cells and natural killer (NK) cells and
improve their ability to destroy abnormal cells. Immune cells are
important for health in general but are specifically involved with the
control of infection and cancer.
AHCC and Abnormal Cells
Global cancer rates keep rising but most cancers are preventable.
Cancer is a disease of the immune system. It is up to our immune system
to recognize and destroy abnormal cells. Immunosurveillance (the ability
of the immune system to detect and destroy atypical cells before they
become harmful) is the pillar of cancer prevention. Indeed, individuals
born with immunodeficiencies are 200 times more likely to develop
cancer. Hence the great promise of immunotherapies like AHCC – therapies
aimed at enhancing the immune system instead of trying to kill abnormal
was shown effective in several research projects. In one study, AHCC
and better nutrition led to a 22% tumor reduction, and 39% tumor
stabilization. The combination of AHCC and genistein concentrated
polysaccharide (another natural anti-tumor substance) induced apoptosis
(the self-destruction of unwanted cells). Similarly, supplementation of
AHCC with an antioxidant extracted from buckwheat, led to the reduction
of skin cancer tumors in test rats. In another study, 6 months of
treatment with AHCC (6g/day) led to a partial response in 49.7% of
cancer patients and a complete response in 8.8%.
AHCC in Combination with Chemotherapy
Studies using AHCC clearly demonstrated that AHCC safely increases the
efficacy of conventional treatments while reducing the frequency of side
effects. Patients taking AHCC with chemo or radiation saw their tumors
shrink and their tumor markers decrease more than patients receiving
conventional treatments alone. Furthermore, a weakened immune system is
one of the most serious side effects of chemotherapy. AHCC helps to
preserve immunity at a time when it is crucial to prevent the spread and
growth of abnormal cells. It also reduces the toxicity and the side
effects associated with chemotherapy. It alleviates hair loss and bone
marrow suppression and prevents the elevation of liver enzymes. Patients
taking AHCC reported less nausea and vomiting and AHCC improved their
body weight and appetite. Unfortunately, at present, there are very few
proven strategies to reduce the risk of tumor recurrence among
survivors. Because of its effect on NK cells, AHCC supplementation may
prove useful for those trying to improve their immune function in order
to reduce their risk of recurrence. A prospective cohort study found
that patients who had undergone resection of a liver tumor had a
significantly longer no recurrence period and an increased overall
survival rate when they took AHCC.
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. Researchers showed that HIV levels could remain suppressed
without drugs if the immune system is functioning adequately.
Preliminary trials with AHCC have given encouraging results.
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 was also
shown effective for patients with chronic viral hepatitis.
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
Diabetic patients have been shown to respond to AHCC, with reductions
of both blood glucose levels and glycated hemoglobin levels. In
addition, AHCC appears to be an adaptogen and may help relieve stress.
is a powerful antioxidant and is most popular as a cancer supplement to
be used in combination with conventional cancer treatment.
AOR’s AHCC contains one of the highest doses found on the market with fewest additional ingredients.
