AHCC supplement information
Q. How is AHCC mushroom extract made?
A. AHCC is an extract of mycelium, obtained through the long-term cultivation of several types of basidiomycetes medicinal mushrooms including shiitake. After undergoing enzymatic decomposition, concentration and freeze-drying, AHCC is obtained from the cultured liquid. Active components of AHCC include glucans and an oligosaccharide.*
Q. What is the right AHCC dosage?
A. Many of the studies in humans have used dosages of AHCC of about 3 grams a day. The ideal AHCC dosage for long term use is still being evaluated. It is possible that one or two capsules of 500 mg a day of AHCC may work well, but research is lacking in this area. Consult your doctor regarding the use of AHCC if you plan to take this supplement for prolonged periods.
Q. What exactly is AHCC ?
A. AHCC is a mixture of polysaccharides, amino acids, lipids and minerals derived from cocultured mycelia of several species of Basidiomycete mushrooms.
Q. Is Source naturals AHCC brand better than other AHCC brands?
A. Most AHCC products on the market come from common suppliers and then are private labeled. We have no evidence to support that Source Naturals AHCC mushroom extract is better or worse than other brands on the market such as Immpower AHCC or Kinoko AHCC. There has not been any human research comparing different brands of AHCC.
Side effects, safety, toxicity
Thus far we are not aware of published studies in medical journals that have shown toxicity or significant side effects with the use of AHCC supplements.
AHCC Supplement Questions
Q. What is the right dosage of AHCC supplement and how often should I take it?
A. Research with AHCC supplement in humans is limited and scientists are still doing more studies to determine the effectiveness of AHCC supplement, the right AHCC dosage and how frequently AHCC supplement can be taken.
Q. I have seen various forms of AHCC, Immpower AHCC and Kinoko AHCC. Which form of AHCC is best?
A. There are several AHCC products available, including ImmPower made by American Biosciences and Kinoko by Quality of Life labs. According to the manufacturer, ImmPower is Active Hexose Correlated Compound, developed by combining several species of mushrooms used in traditional Japanese healing to make one, extremely powerful, hybridized mushroom. This hybridized mushroom is grown in a liquid medium containing rice bran and enzymatically modified to be readily absorb-able.
Kinoko AHCC is made by Quality of Life Labs. Several other companies private label AHCC including Source Naturals and NOW Foods. It is impossible to tell at this time which AHCC product is the most useful.
Q. Can an AHCC
supplement be used the same day as other mushroom extracts such as
agaricus, reishi, cordycepts, maitake, and others?
A. It's difficult to say since human studies are not available regarding the combination of an AHCC supplement and other mushroom extracts. We also don't know how this dietary supplement will interact in those who take it with astragalus, andrographis, echinacea, elderberry, or other herbs used for immune system health.
