If it’s under active your defenses are low, if it’s overactive then it can attack the body by mistake. Talk about sensitive!
Let’s make it a little less complicated shall we?
Introducing Quality of Life’s AHCC supplements. All-natural, safe, immunomodulating supplements that work to improve overall immune system performance, increase the activity of certain white blood cells and fill your body with energy!
A cultured extract of hybridized medicinal mushroom mycelia (roots), AHCC® is one of the world’s most researched specialty immune supplements, supported by over 30 human clinical studies. Studies on AHCC have been conducted at some of the finest research institutions worldwide, including highly regarded Ivy League universities and major health centers.
Unlike most other medicinal mushroom extracts, AHCC has a very low molecular weight of just 5,000 daltons and is rich in alpha-glucans, increasing absorption and efficacy. Because of its superior supporting research, AHCC is used by an estimated 1,000 clinics worldwide. AHCC has been shown to:

AHCC® is a patented, low-molecular weight medicinal mushroom extract developed from the mycelia (or underground portion) of a particular subspecies of Lentinula edodes. Supported by more than 30 human clinical studies, AHCC prompts an early activation of the immune system.* It works by enhancing the production of cytokines (immune-signaling molecules) and increasing the activity of certain white blood cells, including NK cells, DC cells, T-cells, and macrophages.*
Q: What is the difference between Kinoko Gold and Kinoko Platinum AHCC?
A: The same raw material is used for both Kinoko Gold and Kinoko Platinum AHCC. The only difference is that Kinoko Gold contains 500mg of AHCC per capsule while Kinoko Platinum contains 750mg of AHCC per capsule.
Q: If I am allergic to mushrooms can I take AHCC?
A: Allergies to mushrooms are most often associated with exposure to mushroom spores. These spores originate in the top of the mushroom, called the fruiting body. However, AHCC is derived from the mycelia, or the root of the mushroom, which does not contain spores. In addition, as part of the manufacturing process, the raw material is subjected to a fermentation process that breaks down the high molecular weight molecules that are very tough to digest, into low molecular weight compounds. This process further lowers any allergenic potential. Many people who believe they are allergic to mushrooms take AHCC successfully. However, if you are concerned, please check with a healthcare professional that specializes in natural products or begin taking AHCC very slowly. This can be done by starting with a quarter of a capsule on the tip of your tongue and if you don't experience itching in your mouth or other signs of allergy, work your way up to 2 to 6 capsules per day over a period of several days.
Q: Does AHCC lose its effectiveness over time?
A: No AHCC does not lose its effectiveness overtime. As shown in an AHCC placebo controlled scientific trial, patients who used AHCC regularly over a ten year period had consistent and significant improvement as compared to the placebo group, therefore showing no signs of the ingredient losing effectiveness.*
Q: Can AHCC be taken with other medications?
A: Two studies conducted at the highly prestigious MD Anderson Cancer Center and published in the Journal of Integrative Oncology explored AHCC’s interaction with other medications. These studies determined that AHCC is metabolized via a pathway called “P450 2D6,” meaning that AHCC has the potential to increase or decrease the absorption of a drug that uses the same pathway. There are few drugs that use the P450 2D6 pathway. In case of cancer treatment, the only mainline chemotherapies that use this pathway are Doxorubicin and Tamoxifen while other chemotherapeutic drugs use different pathways from the one used by AHCC.
Therefore if you are taking another medication and are concerned about possible interactions, we recommend you ask a medical professional if the drug you are taking is metabolized through the cytochrome P450 2D6 class of enzymes. Most likely the answer will be “no” which means that AHCC is highly unlikely to interact with the drug you are taking.

Recommend AHCC Kinoko Platinum (750 mg). Easy to swallow. Does not upset stomach. Recommend taking two capsules with water 30-60 minutes prior to a meal.
Highly Recommend AHCC. Great quality. Reputable product. Good health benefits.
Keeps me healthy
I have been using AHCC for about 6 months, it plays a great role in my life. Taking AHCC every day helps me to have very strong immune sysrem, I will use this mushroom supplement during the rest of my life. I've already recommended AHCC to my daughter and son, they are very satisfied with the product
Great supplement to help boost immunity in this uncertain time! It’s more potent than other brands and less expensive per pill than the AHCC supplement that I was previously using.
It has been great take them 2 boost my immune system
I really like this item and believe it helps my health tremendously
Great product! Definitely recommend it!
Great product have more energy
Absolutely a daily part of my health maintenance program! Swear by this product for my whole family.
Although a bit in the pricey side, this product is simply the best out there.
Since I’ve been taking AHCC I feel much more energized and I’m able to get up and get what I need to get done. I don’t feel slouchy like I use too
So far so good. Feel healthier each day.
I've been using this stuff for a few months and have noticed improvements in how I feel and my immune system!
Been taking AHCC on and off for about 8 yrs. Now I got my daughter taking it too. Just wish it doesn't cost so much. I started ordering from QOL for the last year because I had doubts about the qualities of Amazon's supplements in their warehouse. Great for immunity. I highly recommend this supplement.
