Awesome!!! | Craig H.

Love the AHCC has made my life better in many ways. I have gone through Chemo therapy years ago and my bowel system has been affected and gotten worse every year since the AHCC has solved my issues and will continue to use the product. Thank you, Quality of Life!

Ordered the AHCC to get my immune system back on track and help with some personal issues. It’s been a clear turn around and good experience so far. I’m looking forward to ordering a second bottle this week to continue my progress and hopefully rid of previous discomfort.

    Protectively
    Packaged in the USA

    We package almost all of our products in glass bottles with metal lids for one simple reason: Glass and metal do the best job of protecting our supplements from light, oxygen, and moisture — all of which can degrade vitamins, minerals, botanicals, and other nutraceuticals and lessen their potency and freshness.

    Dosages
    Matter

    When you choose Quality of Life, you can trust your supplements to work, because 100 percent of the ingredients in every product we manufacture are provided in dosages that match the clinical research.

    Ingredients

    AHCC®

    AHCC® works as a biological response modifier, which means it turns up the dial on your natural immune response and strengthens your resistance.* It works by increasing the numbers and activity of white blood cells in the body. AHCC® increases the activity of natural killer cells, the body’s first line of defense, by as much as 300-800%.* It boosts populations of macrophages, which engulf and destroy foreign material.* It increases numbers of dendritic cells, which identify immune threats and lead T cells to them.* And it boosts numbers and activity of T cells, which recognize previously encountered immune threats and eliminate them on the spot.*

    The Most Effective Medicinal Mushroom Product Available

    What makes AHCC® so effective? First, it contains a special class of polysaccharides called alpha glucans, which are powerful immune-boosters.* Glucans are common in all medicinal mushrooms, but the alpha glucans in AHCC® are more potent than the beta-glucans found in most other mushrooms. Second, AHCC® solves the principal problem facing most medicinal mushroom supplements: poor absorption. While most medicinal mushroom extracts have a molecular weight of more than 200,000 daltons, AHCC® is manufactured through a patented process that reduces its molecular size to under 5,000 daltons — increasing absorption and enhancing efficacy.

    FAQ

    • What is the difference between Kinoko Gold and Kinoko Platinum AHCC?

      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.

    • If I am allergic to mushrooms can I take AHCC?

      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.

    • Does AHCC lose its effectiveness over time?

      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.*

    • Can AHCC be taken with other medications?

      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.
