However, interest in this mushroom's health benefits is far from recent; it has been used for many years in traditional Asian medicine. As a result of considerable research, AHCC® offers the benefits of different active principles with immune-stimulant and anti-tumor properties.

What are the Origins of the Shiitake Mushroom Supplement?

Shiitake mushroom, or Lentinus edodes, is a fungus found in Japan, China, and across the Korean Peninsula. These mushrooms have since been cultivated across the world and made into shiitake mushroom extract capsules, among other things.

Today, 80% of the world's mushroom production is still based in Japan, as these fungi have been used in Asian cuisine for more than two millennia. The Japanese view the mushroom as the "elixir of life." Despite its long lineage, Japan only began cultivating the mushroom 700 years ago, which is relatively recent compared to other Asian nations.

China was one of the first practitioners of shiitake mushroom cultivation. The Ming Dynasty was the first Chinese dynasty to revere the mushroom. It became known as the Emperor's food because only the emperor and his family were allowed to eat it.

Shiitake is prized as an excellent source of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins in the human body, and for its array of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B and iron. It is not surprising that the shiitake mushroom supplement has become so popular today.

What are the Benefits of this AHCC Shiitake Mushroom Extract?

Since its development and the revelation of its therapeutic virtues, AHCC® has been used by many thousands of people and its use supported by studies conducted in over 30 university research institutes and 700 hospitals in Japan and across the world.

  • Among the active principles in AHCC® are the derivatives alpha-glucan, polysaccharides recognized for their immune-stimulant effects. They boost the immune system by stimulating the activity of various groups of white cells, including NK cells, recognized as the body's first line of defense against external attacks.
  • The active principles in AHCC® also increase concentrations of T and B lymphocytes, white blood cells which act in a specific way against pathogens. These immune-stimulant effects therefore make this fermented shiitake extract a valuable aid in the prevention of various diseases.
  • The immune-stimulant properties of AHCC®, demonstrated in in vitro and clinical studies, have rapidly attracted the interest of the scientific community for their potential to fight certain cancers. There is a particular focus on AHCC®'s stimulant effect on NK cells as they are such a vital line of defense against cancer cells.
  • Part of the immediate innate immune response, NK lymphocytes are able to recognize and destroy tumor cells within a few hours. Suffice to say that AHCC®'s stimulation of these 'killer cells' paves the way for promising new therapeutic perspectives in the fight against cancer.

In order to offer a high-quality immune-stimulant supplement, AHCC® is standardized to 10% alpha-glucans and exclusively produced by Amino Up company in Japan, in accordance with GMP and ISO 9001 & 22000 standards. It is delivered in capsules containing an optimal dose of 500 mg, with a suggested amount of 1 to 2 capsules a day. This dosage can be adapted to individual needs and according to the advice of your therapist.

For optimal efficacy, AHCC's beneficial effects can be complemented by other natural active principles such as Lactoferrin, a powerful antioxidant with immune-stimulant properties. The formulation Resveratrol Synergy is also a valuable aid with its exceptional antioxidant content, while the patented product AC-11® can help prevent mutations to DNA.
