Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) is a natural substance made from specially cultivated and hybridized medicinal mushrooms containing bioactive, low molecular weight hexose molecules. This brand of Active Hexose Correlated Compound is made to our manufacturer's own formula in China, and has been tested to have an AHCC content of 40%, which is double the amount of many other brands. This can be verified in the COA.

Mushrooms have been used for immune support for centuries, but unlike other medicinal mushroom extracts, AHCC has very low molecular weight and is rich in alpha-glucans, increasing absorption and efficacy.

Considered a superfood in Japan and China, AHCC has been researched there extensively for its immune enhancement properties.



The immune system’s job is to protect you from harm, and it is always scanning your body to determine if bacteria, viruses, toxins, parasites and other pathogens have entered your system, or if any of your cells have mutated and become abnormal.

You have two basic types of immunity: innate and adaptive. Your innate immunity launches an immediate, non-specific attack against a threat. Your adaptive immunity takes longer to kick in, but produces a specific response to a particular microbe. Human clinical trials have shown that AHCC modifies both the innate and adaptive immune response, by:

  • Increasing the production of cytokines (Chemical messengers that help immune cells communicate and coordinate an immune response);
  • Increasing populations of macrophages (white blood cells that engulf and ingest bacteria and cellular debris), in some cases doubling them. 
  • Increasing the number of dendritic cells (white blood cells that present foreign substances to B and T cells), initiating an adaptive response.
  • Increasing the number of B and T cells by as much as 200%. B cells (which mature in bone marrow) and T cells (which mature in the thymus) are lymphocytes, white blood cells that are able to recognize previous invaders and destroy them with a specific response.


AHCC is one of the world’s most researched specialty immune supplements, supported by 20 human clinical studies, by over 30 papers published in PubMed-indexed journals, and by more than 100 pre-clinical and in vitro studies.
