What is AHCC?
AHCC is the acronym for "Active Hexose Correlated Compound." AHCC is clinically proven as an effective immune booster and utilizes an organic blend of medicinal mushrooms including Shitake, all grown in Japan.* AHCC has been shown to significantly increase immune response* by promoting enhanced macrophage and T-cell activity* and maintaining peak Natural Killer (NK) cell function.* With published research demonstrating AHCC's ability to increase quality of life parameters for people with health challenges, it is no wonder over 700 hospitals and medical centers worldwide recommend AHCC as part of an ongoing immune enhancement program.*
What makes Pure Prescriptions' AHCC different?
The Pure brand stands apart by offering unique benefits that other brands simply don't offer. We start by using 1,000 mg of proprietary AHCC® per serving and then for increased health benefit and value, we add a healthy dose of immune building vitamin C. But we don't stop there! We then add trace minerals, which are necessary and included for energy production, protein synthesis and enzyme systems. This is required by the immune system for maximum boosting. To top it all off, we use a healthy vegetarian encapsulation process, not a cheaper, less healthy bovine derived gelatin.
Is AHCC Safe?
AHCC is a 100% natural product and classified as a dietary supplement. Based on over 20 published studies and the clinical experience of hundreds of hospitals and tens of thousands of consumers, AHCC is shown to be safe. In the studies in which AHCC was given to people with cancer, no side effects or drug interactions were observed.
What are the physiological effects of AHCC?
Human clinical research suggests that AHCC may have the following effects on the human immune system function:
Increases NK (natural killer) cell activity
Increase cytokine (IL-2 and IL-12) production
Increase CD4 + helper cells
What does all this mean and are NK cells really that important? You bet!
The immune system is an intricate network of specialized tissues, organs, cells, and chemicals. The lymph nodes, spleen, bone marrow, thymus gland, and tonsils all play a role, as do lymphocytes (specialized white blood cells), antibodies, and interferon. One key immune cell-the NK (natural killer) cell plays a very critical and highly specialized role to "seek and destroy" threatening particles.
NK (natural killer) cells are the “sentinels” of the immune system. They are a specialized group of cells that play a critical role in immune surveillance, protecting the body from foreign invaders on first exposure.
The effectiveness of NK cells is dependent upon their activity level. AHCC is clinically proven to boost NK cell activity by several hundred percent, making it a unique and powerful supplement.
