What is AHCC®?



ImmPower AHCC® is an immune enhancing mushroom extract with super immune benefits - benefits that cannot be achieved by simply consuming medicinal mushrooms. It is a powerful hybridized mushroom extract that gives the body what it needs to maintain “super immunity.” For this reason, ImmPower AHCC® has gained the endorsement of leading experts in nutritional medicine.

How is this extract made and why is it so powerful?


Japanese scientists made a major discovery back in 1984. They scientifically isolated the immune enhancing properties of several medicinal mushrooms used in Japanese healing. They then utilized a highly specialized cultivation process to grow a completely new hybrid mushroom in a liquid medium containing rice bran. Once achieving their desired result, they created an extract of this immune enhancing hybrid mushroom and enzymatically modified it to be readily absorbed and utilized by the body. The name of this natural extract is Active Hexose Correlated Compound, better known in nutritional circles as AHCC®.

The active ingredient in AHCC® is an alpha-glucan molecule with a very low molecular weight, making it easily absorbed. AHCC® has been shown to enhance levels of interleukin-12 (IL-12), a powerful cytokine that is instrumental in maintaining cell health.

With its unique alpha-1, 4 glucan structure and low molecular weight, research shows that AHCC provides unsurpassed support for the immune system’s front-line defenses:

• Maintaining peak Natural Killer cell function*
• Supporting enhanced cytokine production*
• Promoting optimal T-cell and macrophage activity*

AHCC has been heralded for its superior immune enhancing benefits based on over 30 published studies and the clinical experience of hospitals, doctors and tens of thousands of consumers. It is one of the world’s most recommended and popular immune supplements.
