AHCC® (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a proprietary extract produced from specially cultivated and hybridized mushrooms (Basidocymetes). According to extensive research in humans, as well as numerous non-clinical studies, AHCC® supports immune system function through its ability to enhance macrophage and NK (Natural Killer) Cell Activity. NK cells and the intercellular mediators they produce are critical for the maintenance of healthy cell cycle function. AHCC® has also been shown to possess antioxidant properties and support healthy liver function.


Now Foods is NNFA GMP certified (learn more) and their highly respected quality control team is led by Mike Lelah, Ph.D.
