AHCC is amazing! The immune boost is why I take AHCC, but I also love the energy it provides! I have been taking for a year and a half. Worth every penny!

Best immune system boosting supplement there is! I’m still using it every day and I’ll never stop using it because of how much my life has improved.

Life changing products!

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.

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.

Packaged in the USA

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the difference between Kinoko®️ Gold, Kinoko®️ Platinum AHCC®️, and Kinoko®️ 50+ 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. Similar as Kinoko Gold, Kinoko 50+ AHCC contains 500mg of AHCC per capsule. But doesn't just deliver a powerful AHCC dose; it's also crafted to address the exact immune challenges faced by older individuals with the addition of Lactobacillus paracasei (MCC1849), a sterilized probiotic. This makes it the ideal choice for those in this age bracket seeking enhanced immune support. ​

  • 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.
