The immune system is complex.

Like, really complex...

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:

  • Maintain optimal NK cell activity*
  • Enhance cytokine production*
  • Promote optimal T-cell activity*
  • Promote optimal macrophage activity*
  • Increase the activity & number of dendritic cells*

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. 

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.

love this product

Very expensive

Wish this was the fruit of the mushroom. It's the mycelia not the fruit of the mushroom. Try Sacred 7. It's a mushroom blend. It's not the mycelia but the actually mushroom! So you get the immunity and memory as well! Way cheaper.

Love the AHCC!!

Began taking AHCC about 5 years ago and tried different brands. This AHCC is the only one that I can trust for maintenance. Had loose stool daily for 8 months before taking AHCC. And now am very regular and normal.

Love the Product, Not the Price

I’ve been taking this product for a few years. I love what this product has done for me. I don’t like the price though. The price keeps going up. I can barely afford it anymore and generally look for deals online.
