Read on to learn about the benefits of Active Hexose Correlated Compound:

Immune Support

As mentioned previously, AHCC has been claimed to boost the immune system. According to a study where participants took either an AHCC supplement or a placebo every day for four weeks, those who took the supplement showed a significant increase in the type of cell that is involved in immune response – called dendritic cells.

Prevents Cancer Development

The antioxidant could have potential to be used as complementary therapy for ovarian cancer, according to research. According to one study in 2018, AHCC was found to prevent the growth of ovarian cancer cells. It has also been suggested that the compound may be beneficial in the treatment of other cancers, too.

History of Shiitake

According to legend, a man called Wu San-Kwung was the first to cultivate shiitake in China, around 1000 years ago. He was testing his axe on a log that shiitake was growing on, making several cuts in the wood before leaving. The next day he returned to find that more shiitake had grown in the cuts he had made with his axe previously.

He continued to test this theory, becoming the pioneer of cultivated shiitake, until one day he came across a log that would not fruit. In frustration, he began beating and throwing the log around, when he returned a few days later he found this log to be totally covered in the mushroom – he had unintentionally discovered the ‘soak and beat’ cultivation method that is still used today.
