For many years the only way to have access to this fantastic immune booster supplement was to live in Japan. During this era Lane Labs located in the U.S. formulated a similar product. Both products targeted the immune system specifically to prevent and treat cancer, and both proved their effectiveness.
In fact, the Lane Labs product, MGN-3 was so good it seems that political pressure was put on the FDA to find a way to prohibit its distribution in the U.S. It took a while, but a couple of years ago the FDA was finally successful in forcing Lane Labs to stop selling MGN-3 in the U.S. That was a sad day.
But you know, when one door closes, another one opens and sometimes that new opening is a good thing. That is what happened here. The product that was exclusive to Japan was finally approved for import to the United States.
The name of that product is AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound.
You’re wondering what is this product. Right! It is an extract of several mushrooms which include the shiitake. These are considered medicinal mushrooms and are known for their 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. In addition, NK cell numbers are dramatically increased in the presence of viruses.
Our immune systems stand between us and the rest of the world. If our bodies did not have an immune system we would be overcome by bacteria, parasites, fungi, viruses and cancer cells. Our immune system is quite complex and is composed of a large array of specialized immune cells that identify, seek out and destroy microbes, pathogens and tumor/cancel cells.
This immune system produces something called natural killer (NK) cells. They rapidly attack any potential threats. This is the “front-line” defense system. What actually happens is that the NK cells attach themselves to the surface of cancer cells and inject a chemical hand grenade (this is a “granule”) into the cancer cell. Then it explodes killing and bacteria or virus. The NK cell remains undamaged and continues to move from cancer cell to cancer cell doing its killing job.
As we age our immune systems lose their efficiency and the NK cells slow down and don’t kill off all the bad, bad cancer cells quick enough. You can now see the importance to keep our immune system strong as we age and there is only one way to do it, with supplements. High quality supplements.
Now I would like to introduce you to AHCC (activated hexose correlate compound)which has the ability to:
* Stimulate cytokine production, which stimulates immune function.
* Increases NK cell activity against diseased cells as much as 300%
* Increases the formation of explosive granules (using NK cells) which destroys cancer cells and tumors.
* Increases the number and the activity of lymphocytes, superficially increasing T-cells up to 200%.
* Increases Interferon levels, which inhibits the replication of viruses and also stimulates the NK cell activity.
* Increases the formation of TNF, a group of proteins that help destroy cancer cells.
AHCC is so effective it has been written up in…
* International Journal of Immunology
* Anti-Cancer Drugs
* Society of Natural Immunity
* International Journal of Immunotherapy
It has been generally decided that 3 grams a day of AHCC will lower the level of cancer markers found with patients with…
* prostate cancer
* ovarian cancer
* multiple myeloma
* breast cancer
AHCC was initially used in Japan, but now it is available in the Unite States. Taken in therapeutic doses it will increase the NK cell activity. Normally AHCC comes in 500mg capsules so in order to reach the effective dose, 6 capsules a day will be required. Consumption is oral. For those persons with cancer, AIDS, and other life-threatening conditions, 6 capsules a a day is the minimum dose. Spread the doses eventually throughout the day so that the body has a constant supply of nutrients to keep increased NK cell activity an a high constant level.
The high dosage should be maintained for minimum of 3 weeks and it some cases should be extended to 8-10 weeks. Once it is proven that all cancer markers have been reduced substantially wherein the patient has shown a major reduction of cancer markers and energy and vitality have returned, then and only then can a reduction to 3 capsules a day can is possible.
