AHCC has been shown to:
Providing 67% greater potency, each 300 mg softgel of AHCC-Rx is equivalent to one 500 mg capsule of AHCC. The new, smaller softgels are easy to swallow and enable a divided AM/PM dose.
Suggested Use: 2 softgels (up to 3 times) daily before meal.
Serving Size: 2 softgels
Serving Per Container: 30

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 the AHCC used in the AHCC Rx formula and the AHCC used in the Kinoko Gold and Platinum products?
A: The AHCC used in AHCC Rx (called AHCC FD) has a higher potency than the regular AHCC used in our other AHCC products. Each 300 mg softgel of AHCC Rx is equivalent to one 500 mg capsule of regular AHCC.
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.

These vitamins are amazing. I am very pleased with how they work. I can feel a difference in my energy level and alertness.
I have reviewed other products and this one is a high quality product. When I received my last shipment, two glass bottles of AHCC mushroom extract were broken and customer service was sending replacement bottles.

I believe it’s given my immune system a little boost . I don’t know if I should contribute my blood pressure lowering to almost a normal status but I did read that AHCC is used in Japan for blood pressure . Also the same goes for my Rosacea. I feel like my Rosacea has gotten better . One more thing is I feel a lot better overall mentally and physically.
I’ve been using this product for about it 6 months I think it’s giving great results. Thxs

I take this product daily as a preventative and am happy to say I find Quality of Life products very high quality with no artificial ingredients. Love you products. Thank you
I have been using this AHCC for years now. This product is of great quality & helps me deal with my health issues. I only trust this brand!
My immune system seems to be working fine, but it will take a while longer to judge the effect on my NK cells. I have high hopes! I do love the small capsules -- very easy to take.
This is a great product. I take it to protect my immune system from any invaders. I did my research before ordering and found this product to be the one that I felt was high quality with ingredients that my body would benefit from that I can trust. .
I spent a lot of time researching immune supporting supplements and AHCC is one of the forerunners, and Quality of Life has proved to be one of the best suppliers of AHCC.
So far so good!
These pills are wonderfully small and easy to swallow. Also, the QofL promotional e-mails are a cut above average. They are often interesting and useful.
I love this product so much I have it auto delivered every month .. I feel great
