AHCC PRODUCT RESEARCH

Nature Meets Technology

Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC®) is the product of a highly specialized manufacturing process developed in Japan during the mid-1980s. AHCC® is an extract obtained from a hybridization of several species of mushroom mycelia. Cultivated under exacting conditions, the product is microencapsulated to protect the compound's integrity. This product was developed in Japan using state-of-the-art biotechnology to create a formula which would be more effective than using any combination of single mushroom products. This proprietary technology is exclusive to AHCC® ensuring a consistent, efficacious, and safe product.


Scientific Research and Widespread Use of AHCC

Over 700 hospitals and medical clinics worldwide recommend AHCC to their patients. More than 15 books and hundreds of periodical articles have been written about AHCC. Also, over 17 published research studies exist on AHCC (some in peer reviewed journals), 16 Abstracts, 11 presentations, and 23 basic and clinical research summaries. In sum, AHCC has an impressive number of quality research trials showing its safety and efficacy over the last 14 years.


Natural Recognition for Best Product

Quality of Life Labs is the proud recipient of the Nutracon Best New Product of 2002 award, the esteemed NutrAward, for AHCC(Active Hexose Correlated Compound). This award is given to the best new natural product on the market with solid scientific research and proven efficacy.


Suggested Dosages

Dosage range is between 1-3 grams per day. This equates to 1-3 bottles per month (60 capsules of 500mg). AHCC should be taken in divided doses on an empty stomach (30 minutes before meals or 2 hours after meals) for optimal absorption. For example, when taking 3 grams per day, take 3 capsules 30 minutes before breakfast and 3 before dinner. While the therapeutic dose is 3 grams per day, the maintenance dose is only 1 gram per day.

AHCC Q&A

Q: Why is it better to take AHCC on an empty stomach?
A: If AHCC is taken with meals, it will be diluted by the food and may be excreted along with food fibers without absorption. Thus, the best time to take AHCC is 30 minutes before meals or 1 to 2 hours after a meal.

Q: Why is there so much of a price discrepancy between different brands of AHCC?
A: AHCC is a trademarked product manufactured exclusively by Amino Up (Sapporo, Japan). They sell the raw material to Quality of Life Labs, who then sells it to other companies, making Quality of Life Labs the exclusive distributor in the United States. The other companies proceed to label AHCC under their own brands. Since AHCC is costly to produce, make sure the brand you buy is nationally-known and reputable.

About 30-40% of consumers notice the energy-enhancing effects of AHCC. If you find AHCC to have an energizing effect, do not take it before bed.

Q: How safe is AHCC?
A: AHCC is extremely safe. First, through historical knowledge of the mushroom product which have been used as food since ancient times. Second, through observation of thousands of patients in hospitals and in clinical trials where no side effects have been observed. And lastly, animal studies show very low toxic potential in both acute dose and long-term studies.

Q: Does AHCC lose its effectiveness over time?
A: No. An AHCC placebo controlled scientific trial published in a peer reviewed journal showed that patients who used AHCC regularly over a ten year period had consistent and significant improvement as compared to the placebo group.
