Auto-immune diseases are caused by an over-active immune system. One of the best things you can do is support your immune system with a proven and balanced natural supplement. A supplement such as Active Hexose Correlated Compound supports your natural immune defense giving your innate immunity and adaptive immunity the tools they need to keep you healthy and well.

institutions worldwide, including highly regarded Ivy League universities.
AHCC & Viral Infection
In the setting of viral infection, AHCC was observed to increase the percentage and number of NK cells in the lungs, as well as NK activity in both the lungs and spleen in mice subject to influenza A infection. Although not all studies pertaining to the use of AHCC in the setting of viral infection have investigated or shown direct impact of AHCC on NK function, results consistently show improved response to infection. This includes studies of animals with avian influenza virus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Candida albicans, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Additionally, AHCC has been studied in clinical settings of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection, and was shown in a small pilot study to improve eradication of persistent HPV infection. In healthy adults taking AHCC, it was observed that the CD4(+) and CD8(+) T-cell response and production of IFN-γ and/or tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α was enhanced. Given the effects observed with AHCC in response to viruses and altered cytokine profiles, AHCC may one means of addressing latent or active viral infections, as well as the state of immune imbalance that can contribute to autoimmunity.
AHCC has been shown to:
• Maintain optimal NK cell activity*
• Enhance cytokine production*
• Promote optimal T-cell activity*
• Promote optimal macrophage activity*
• Increase the activity and number of dendritic cells*
