What Is AHCC®?

AHCC® is a patented blend of mycelia, which are the roots of medicinal mushrooms. We formulate each Quality of Life AHCC® supplement with therapeutic doses of AHCC® to boost your immune function.* 

AHCC® has shown promising results for the human immune system in clinical studies worldwide.* 

These supplements capture the healing powers of medicinal mushrooms in a convenient capsule that you can take daily.* 

In addition to Quality of Life’s three premium immune-boosting AHCC® supplements AHCC® GoldAHCC® Platinum, and AHCC® Rx, we now offer a specially formulated Kinoko® 50+ AHCC® that is especially effective for those aged 50+.

How is Kinoko® 50+ AHCC® Different?

Each of our immune support supplements contains the star ingredient: AHCC®. They all are different in the dosages that they contain, however.

500 milligrams of AHCC® has shown positive effects on immune health and function.* This is the minimum dose needed to protect your health and support your immunity.* 

AHCC® Gold contains 500 milligrams of AHCC® per capsule. We recommend this supplement for beginners who are new to AHCC® and want to introduce it to their systems slowly. 

AHCC® Platinum contains 750 milligrams of AHCC® per capsule, making it a medium-strength immune support supplement for those who could use an extra boost. 

AHCC® Rx is our strongest AHCC® supplement, with 300 milligrams of extra-strength AHCC® concentrated into one softgel. Each 300-milligram softgel of AHCC® Rx is equivalent to 500 milligrams of normal AHCC®. This is a very powerful immune-boosting supplement that can protect your body during seasons of circulating health threats.* 

Kinoko® 50+ AHCC® is different however, because it is a premium immune supplement made with two ingredients clinically shown to boost immune function.* Both ingredients in Kinoko® 50+ AHCC® have been clinically shown to boost immune response.* LAC Shield is a postbiotic that builds resistance in people who are frequently under the weather.* AHCC® is a hybridized medical mushroom that supercharges your natural killer cells to do what they do best.*

The postbiotic featured in Kinoko® 50+ AHCC® was selected from several thousand tested because it had the best immune-boosting ability of all.*

What Makes AHCC® so Effective?

There are a few reasons that AHCC® has such positive effects on your immune health.* 

And each AHCC® supplement is formulated with science, research, and your well-being in mind. So, why is it so beneficial to overall health?

Low Molecular Weight

The molecular weight of a substance determines how easily it is absorbed into your body. 

Ingredients with higher molecular weights may provide fewer benefits for your overall health. 

AHCC® has a molecular weight of 5,000 daltons, which is particularly low when it comes to health supplements. This allows AHCC® to be absorbed and used by your body more efficiently.* 

Supported by Human Studies*

We use human clinical studies and research to formulate all of our premium health supplements.* AHCC® is no exception to this rule. 

When we follow studies that involve human participants, the results are much clearer. We can more easily determine whether an ingredient will have positive effects on human health. 

AHCC® has been studied in over 30 human clinical trials across the world.* Over 1,000 health clinics use AHCC® to foster immunity and health protection globally.* 

How Does AHCC® Work to Boost Immunity?

This patented blend of mycelia works in several ways to protect and strengthen your immune system.* 

By increasing your immune response to health threats, AHCC® helps your body fight off harmful particles quickly and effectively.* 

Increases Natural Killer Cell Activity*

Natural killer cells are the first immune cells that health threats have to face in your body. 

These cells are your system’s frontline defense against uncomfortable health problems. 

When natural killer cells come across abnormal or threatening particles, they destroy the particles to prevent them from spreading.

This can happen so quickly that you never experience symptoms! AHCC® has been shown to increase natural killer cell activity by 300-800%.* This makes a world of difference when you are around people with contagious health issues or exposed to environments that may threaten your health.* 

Boosts Macrophage Populations*

Macrophages clean up your immune system by:

  • Engulfing and destroying foreign particles
  • Removing any damaged cells
  • Eliminating suspicious cells

This helps your immune system run smoothly and efficiently and works to prevent future health problems. AHCC® helps your body generate more macrophages to keep your system free of health threats.* 

Promotes T-Cell Activity and Reproduction*

T-cells identify previously encountered health threats and lead the appropriate defense cells to them. Without T-cells, your body would have to fight off every health threat as if it were brand-new. 

AHCC® helps boost the population of T-cells within your immune system and increase their activity.* This keeps your system safer from threatening particles that it has already come across.

Increases Number of Dendritic Cells*

Dendritic cells work closely with T-cells to identify known health threats and destroy them. When you take AHCC® as directed, your body’s population of dendritic cells can increase in healthy amounts.* This means that your immune system doesn’t have to work as hard to recruit T-cells to identify specific health threats. 

AHCC® helps protect your health before threats have time to generate real problems in your system.* 

Can People with Mushroom Sensitivities Take AHCC®?

We always recommend consulting your doctor before starting a new supplement regimen, especially if you have mushroom sensitivities. Everyone’s body reacts differently to sensitive ingredients. However, AHCC® has historically been safe for people with mushroom sensitivities.* 

Mushroom intolerances typically come from the top part of the mushroom, which contains mushroom spores. 

AHCC® is formulated with medicinal mushroom roots, so there should be no sensitivity problems from taking these supplements.

An Immune Boost for Those Aged 50+

If you’re over the age of 50 and want to defend your health all year long, we have you covered at Quality of Life with our newest supplement Kinoko® 50+ AHCC®. What better time to get your immune system in tip-top shape than during the changing seasons?

Immune protection is especially important for those in late middle age or seniors because immunity declines with age. In fact, after age 20, the body makes very few new T cells and focuses on keeping its existing cells alive. 

And that’s not the only change. Older adults take longer to produce antibodies when they are exposed to a new pathogen, and those antibodies are less effective at stopping infection. That’s because B cells in older people produce antibodies that are less fine-tuned to their targets.

Now, with Kinoko® 50+ AHCC® you can be confident in your body’s immune response. Pick up a bottle (or several) of one of any of our AHCC® supplements today to stay healthy and energized year-round.*
