The immune benefits of mushrooms appear to be largely tied to a naturally occurring polysaccharide called alpha glucan—which has been shown to support and promote both innate and adaptive immune function.◆ Through innovative biotechnology, a bioavailable form of mushroom polysaccharides/alpha glucan, and other micronutrients called AHCC® was developed.
In vivo and human clinical trials have shown that AHCC® supports both innate and adaptive immune responses by promoting the production/activity of cytokines, white blood cells, T cells, and dendritic cells.◆
The most pertinent research-backed benefits of supplementation with AHCC® may include:
● Support immune health◆
● Support cardiovascular function◆
● Promote liver health◆
● Support for healthy inflammatory response◆
