AHCC - Active Hexose Correlated Compound
AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a proprietary extract produced from specially cultivated and hybridized mushrooms (Basidocymetes). According to extensive research in humans, as well as numerous non-clinical studies, AHCC supports immune system function through its ability to enhance macrophage and NK (Natural Killer) Cell Activity. NK cells and the intercellular mediators they produce are critical for the maintenance of healthy cell cycle function.
