What is AHCC (Mushroom Compound Extract) ?


AHCC (Mushroom Compound Extract) , as known as Active Hexose Correlated Compound is an alpha-glucan rich nutritional ingredient extracted from fermented mushroom. It has proven that AHCC strengthens human’s immune system , and has a big potential for anti-cancer .

The main active ingredient of AHCC is polysaccharides, which includes beta-glucan (β-glucan) and acetylated α-glucan. Glucans are known to have immune stimulating effects. The low molecular weight of acetylated α -glucan (around 5000 daltons) is easily absorbed into the system compared to the higher molecular weight of β-glucan, which is in the range of tens to hundreds of thousands of daltons.
