AHCC 500mg (Shiitake mycelia with alpha-glucans) Vitals capsules

Productcode : 28313274

The name of the product 'AHCC' is an abbreviation for 'Active Hexose Correlated Compound'. AHCC consists of a complex of nutrients with a unique composition. The product is manufactured by fermentation of mycelia of the shiitake (Lentinula edodes). The mycelium consists of a mushroom underground mushrooms and generally contains components other than the fruit body separately. The specially developed production process of AHCC ensures that this nutritional supplement has unique qualities.

AHCC has been produced in Japan since 1989 by the renowned company Amino Up Co. through a fermentation process that has been refined over the years. By assuming the same starting culture for each production, a consistent composition and high quality of the final product can be guaranteed. The patented production process ensures a high level of alpha-glucans; polysaccharides naturally occurring in small amounts in shiitake mycelia. This is in contrast to the mushroom fruit body, which contains mainly beta-glucans. The fermentation process takes about forty days. The mycelia are grown in a specially developed liquid broth based on rice bran. During the fermentation process, the mycelial components of the medium transform into other nutrients. This creates the unique composition of AHCC, which is not comparable to simply dried shiitake powder. After forty days, the insoluble cell components are separated by centrifugation and remains a liquid ("supernatant") rich in alpha-glucans and other nutrients. After freeze drying, AHCC powder is finally made, which can be processed into capsules. By using no heat in the manufacturing process, the fragile natural constituents remain in the extract.
