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. 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.

AHCC Kinoko Platinum

I have been using this product for a year now, and I have to say this has been a life-saver for the cold and flu season. I work in a school and am exposed to sick children daily. I did not get sick one time this year, and I attribute this to the AHCC Kinoko Platinum. Great product, I highly recommend.

Wonderful Product

I am taking less allergy medicine. I would take sudafed and benedryl everyday and I have not taken any since March when I started the AHCC. My allergies have calmed down. I made it through allergiy season and high pollen on nothing-amazing. I take just one AHCC a day.

Customer for life!

I’ve been using QOL products for over a year and love all of them. They have helped me take better care of myself and I always see results. I work in a doctors office and I’m around sick patients all day. I have yet to get sick! Customer service is amazing! They have a customer for life!

Great product

I feel more energy and have had a positive impact on my health using the AHCC Platinum supplements

Stefan Z.
United States United States

So far so good.

The only reason why I gave 4 stars is because I’ve been only using the product for a month and can’t say for sure whether I can see/feel its effects right away. It usually takes up to a couple of months of daily use to see effects from supplements.

Feeling really good

I have also been taking other mushroom supplements (Lion’s Mane, Reishi, Cordyceps, and Turkey Tail). I’ve been feeling great, and even better since I’ve added the AHCC. Our town has recently been blanketed in pine pollen and I’ve been largely unaffected whir others have been miserable. The first bottle I purchased was short 3 pills (never would have counted but another reviewer said that they were shorted). Loved the way I felt after taking the AHCC so i ended up ordering 3 more bottles ( first bottle count was spot-on). I plan on continuing taking this well until flu season hopefully it will help.

Immune booster!

Before I started taking the Kinoko Platinum AHCC, I had constant sore throats and infections. I know for a FACT that this stuff works. Highly recommend if you can afford it (it’s pretty expensive).

Product works

I was advised to use AHCC for a viral condition for six months. When I had tests after six months the virus was gone.
