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.

My husband and I have been taking 2 capsules every morning during flu season (we don’t vaccinate) and feel it keeps the flu bug at bay while everyone around us has been sick. When we feel a little compromised we take 3 or 4 capsules twice a day until we are back to feeling good. We are in our mid 70’ies and very healthy. AHCC helps us stay that way and my doctor recommends AHCC as well.
QOL products always arrive quickly and on time. Ive been using the Shiitake formula for over a year. Glad I tried them. its not easy for me to always keep up with my immune support and proper diet so its good to know I have this a backup -ja
I have been having immune system issues and have seen great improvement with this supplement. It’s only been 1.5 months so hoping to see much more as time goes on! I also take a few other supplements that have been helping as well.
I’m very happy with these supplements they make me feel good and I know there is science backing their results.
One of the best supplements I have ever taken!
So far I feel great will continue to use!
Since researching AHCC products and seeing the positive reviews/results of others, I decided to give it a try! After over a year of using it, I haven't had a cold in months and feel it has helped strengthened my immune system tremendously. It is costly, but for the ingredients and added benefits well worth it! I'll continue to purchase this product!
The supplements I ordered are extremely high quality. They arrived quickly, and were packaged perfectly and carefully.
Despite living with an 8yo who has been sick at least three times, and overseas travel, I have not been sick since taking this supplement.
I think it is helping
Very much impressed. I am getting relief from problems I've not found answers to, at all, from other sources.
My daughter takes this everyday, definitely strengthen her immunity
This product is great! I’m not getting any colds even though I’m around so many germs & people who are sick. Plus, I have more energy!
I almost never get a cold since I've taken AHCC. I think it is helping my immune system.
