Health-Boosting Mushroom Species

There are thousands of different mushroom species that can be found around the world. These fungi serve a wide variety of purposes in nature, but medicinal mushrooms are the most beneficial for humans. 

Lion’s mane brain-boosting mushrooms are beneficial for cognitive function and neurological protection.* These medicinal mushrooms have a protective effect on the neurons in your brain. 

Cordyceps mushrooms, also known as “caterpillar fungus,” are known to boost energy and lung health.* This species has been shown to increase the production of ATP, which acts as your body’s main source of energy.*

Turkey tail mushrooms protect your immune health.* They increase the number of immune cells that are available to help defend your body against foreign health threats.* 

Shiitake mushrooms are often used in cooking. These mushrooms support your cardiovascular health by improving your cholesterol levels.* 

These are just a few of the most important types of medicinal mushrooms. When you take supplements that contain medicinal mushroom extracts, your health stays in good shape, and your body remains protected.*

Medicinal Mushrooms in Ancient Medicine 

Ancient civilizations used to formulate medicine with medicinal mushrooms thousands of years ago. Mushrooms have been used to heal the human body for centuries now.

Medicinal mushrooms contain many regulating compounds. For example, many medicinal mushrooms regulate your body’s inflammatory responses in healthy ways.* 

Mushrooms can also boost your immune system by helping you fight off health threats.* Simply including some types of medicinal mushrooms in your everyday diet can support your immune health.* 

Free radicals are damaging molecules that attack healthy tissues and cells in your body. Medicinal mushrooms have been used as antioxidants to neutralize free radicals since ancient times.* 

The antioxidant properties of medicinal mushrooms also support better brain health, including cognition, memory, and mood.* They work to combat brain aging and fight off neurodegenerative conditions.* 

As you get older, your body is less equipped to fight off free radicals. Free radicals can damage cells in your body and accelerate the aging process.

Ancient civilizations used medicinal mushrooms to ward off the signs of aging. Some long-term health conditions were improved by using medicinal mushrooms. 

Ancient peoples had limited understanding of health and wellness, but they managed to remain healthy using the medicinal properties of mushrooms.

AHCC®: Medicinal Mushroom Supplements

AHCC® is a patented blend of medicinal mushroom roots. We have formulated three of our most popular supplements with AHCC®: AHCC® Gold, AHCC® Platinum, and AHCC® Pro.

Our AHCC® supplements harness the immune-boosting properties of medicinal mushrooms.* When you take AHCC® supplements, your immune system has extra support against many of the health threats that it encounters.* 

AHCC® works by increasing the number and activity of beneficial immune cells.* 

These cells include: 

  • T-cells 
  • Natural killer cells
  • Macrophages
  • Dendritic cells

These immune cells are essential for protecting your health and well-being.

T-cells identify previously eliminated health threats in your system. They are responsible for presenting these harmful particles to other immune cells so that they can destroy them. 

Natural killer cells neutralize harmful particles and fight off common circulating threats. These are the cells that keep your body free of devastating health threats, even if you are exposed to them from someone else.

Macrophages consume foreign particles and health threats and break down their contents. Think of macrophages as the “cleaners” of your immune system. 

Dendritic cells activate your immune response in the first place. They signal to other immune cells that it is time to fight off a circulating threat in your bloodstream. 

AHCC® increases the activity of all of these beneficial immune cells.* Taking any of our AHCC® supplements could protect you from health threats that make you feel under the weather.* 

The benefits of AHCC® are backed by clinical research.* You can protect your immune system using this medicinal mushroom supplement.* 

Neutralize Body Odor with Deodorex®*

Deodorex® contains a proprietary medicinal mushroom extract that kills bad odors in your body.* If you struggle with bad body odor or harsh breath, this is the supplement for you. 

Deodorex® is formulated with an extract from the champignon mushroom, also known as the button mushroom. This patented champignon extract works to neutralize odor-causing chemicals in your blood and mouth.* 

When you take Deodorex® as a normal supplement, it enters your bloodstream and affects the chemicals in your blood.* Compounds like uric acid and ammonia, which cause foul body odors, become harmless.* 

Deodorex® can also improve your kidney health by purifying your blood.* This means fewer toxins reach your kidneys, which lightens the load on them.* 

If you empty the contents of a Deodorex® capsule into a cup of water, you can use it as an oral rinse.* This combats bad breath by killing the germs responsible for unpleasant odors.* 

If you want a bodily detox and need to smell better, Deodorex® is the supplement you need.* Add Deodorex® to your daily routine for reduced body odor and more pleasant-smelling breath.*
