This dietary supplement has been formulated to offer the benefits of AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound), a rare compound developed by Japanese scientists. It is obtained by fermenting an extract of a mushroom popular in Asia and Europe called shiitake (Lentinus edodes). Interest in the health benefits of this mushroom is far from recent however – it has been used for many years in traditional Asian medicine. The result of considerable research, AHCC offers the benefits of a combination of different active principles with immune-stimulant and anti-tumour properties.
Since it was developed and its therapeutic virtues revealed, AHCC has been used by many thousands of people, its use supported by studies conducted in over 30 university research institutes and 700 hospitals in Japan and across the world.
In order to offer a high-quality immune-stimulant supplement, shiitake extracts standardised to 60% AHCC are obtained in a laboratory in accordance with GMP and ISO 9100 & 22000 standards, and delivered in capsules containing an optimal 500mg, with a suggested dose of one to two capsules a day. This dose can be adapted to individual needs and the advice of your therapist. For optimal efficacy, AHCC's beneficial effects can be complemented by other natural active principles such as lactoferrin, a powerful antioxidant with immune-stimulant properties. The formulation Resveratrol Synergy is also a valuable aid with its exceptional antioxidant content, while the patented product AC-11 can help prevent mutations to DNA.
