Ahcc

font size

How does Ahcc work?

There isn't enough information to know how AHCC might work. Some researchers think it might increase the activity of "natural killer cells" in people who have cancer. Animal research suggests it might also be able to protect the liver against certain poisonous chemicals and prevent diabetes.

Are there safety concerns?

AHCC is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken by mouth appropriately in medicinal amounts. Doses of AHCC ranging from 4.5 to 6 grams daily have been used safely for up to 6 months. A lower dose (3 grams daily) has been used safely for up to 9 years.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking AHCC if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Autoimmune diseases: AHCC seems to increase immune function, and might make autoimmune diseases worse. Tell people with autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or others to avoid or use AHCC cautiously.
