NowFoods AHCC 500 mg 60 caps for immunity
Now Foods AHCC is a specialized formula that includes a biologically active substance called AHCC. It is the world's best-researched immunity-supporting compound, and its safety and effectiveness have been confirmed by numerous clinical studies.
What is AHCC?
AHCC - Active Hecose Correlated Compound - is a group of chemical compounds extracted from the mycelium (mycelium) of fungi in the Basidiomycetes class (including shiitake, Reishi or Lentinus edodes). Their composition includes a mixture of polysaccharides, amino acids, lipids and minerals. The dominant components are oligosaccharides, among which alpha-glucans predominate. These are the active ingredients in AHCC and are responsible for the compound's remarkable properties.
AHCC is primarily known for its potential to modulate the human immune system, hence its high efficacy against a wide range of health problems, from common ailments like the common cold or flu to serious cancer, autoimmune diseases, or diabetes or hepatitis.
The potential inherent in AHCC is widely used in the medical industry - the agent finds its use in autoimmune therapy, is administered to patients during chemotherapy (increasing its effectiveness and offsetting the accompanying side effects), and is an effective support in the fight against cancer
How does NowFoods AHCC 500 mg 60 caps work?
Activation of the body's natural defense mechanisms
Behind many disease states is one root cause: impaired immunity. As a modifier of the biological response, AHCC naturally supports the immune system and thus helps fight all types of health threats. By stimulating the immune system and regenerating lowered immunity, it rebuilds the normal functions of the human immune system.
The action of AHCC focuses on several levels. First of all, it increases, by up to 300-800% (!), the activity of NK cells (Natural Killers), i.e. blood cells that recognize and destroy abnormal or infected cells. It also contributes to increased production of cytokines - chemical messengers involved in the immune response. Behind the cause of AHCC, the population of macrophages - cells whose activity focuses on neutralizing bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and fragments of damaged cells - multiplies, and the activity of B and T lymphocytes increases.
Cytokines, NK cells, macrophages, dendritic cells and B and T lymphocytes are key players in the immune system. Strengthening and multiplying this population naturally activates the body's own defense mechanisms, improves the ability to fight pathogens and effectively protects against disease.
Support in the fight against cancer
As an immunomodulatory agent, AHCC has shown great effectiveness in treating carcinogenic diseases. In Japan, it is widely used as an alternative therapy for cancer patients. Studies have proven that it is most effective against cancers of the liver, stomach, lung, intestine, thyroid, ovary, breast, kidney, pancreas, prostate and lymphoma.
By supporting the immune system, it mobilizes the body to fight abnormal cells whose growth can lead to cancer. It also increases the prognosis and improves the quality of life in those already affected. It effectively eliminates the human papillomavirus (HPV), responsible for cervical, oral and throat cancer. It helps induce the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD), which plays a very large role in the process of cancer formation.
AHCC is often combined with conventional treatment with chemotherapy or radiation therapy. The compound nullifies adverse symptoms occurring during chemotherapy and reduces its toxicity. It reduces hair loss, relieves nausea, improves appetite and has a positive effect on body weight.
The liver is another organ that can benefit from the beneficial effects of AHCC. The compound reduces liver enzyme activity, which is why it is used as a supplement for people with hepatitis. It also protects against a decrease in the enzyme glutathione S-transferase, which is involved in detoxification. It protects the liver from the harmful effects of toxic substances.
AHCC is an ideal product for people fighting diseases with underlying weakness of the immune system, or who simply want to strengthen their immune system and thus protect the body from various diseases and disorders. The active compound contained in the preparation is well studied, non-toxic and completely safe for health.
