AHCC® is a Clinically Researched Immunity Superpower

AHCC® is a mushroom extract obtained from the shiitake mushroom species. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to strengthen the immune system and protect against infection. 

Today, AHCC® is one of the best researched nutritional supplements with remarkable efficacy and an impeccable safety profile based on over 20 Human Trials.

Effect on the Immune System

AHCC® uses extracts of mushrooms from the Basidiomycete family, particularly the mycelium of Lentinula edodes, more commonly known as shiitake mushrooms. The glucans are the parts of these mushrooms that are responsible for its efficacy in boosting the immune system to fight viruses.1

Specifically, they work primarily on improving the innate immune system (the part of your immune system that you are born with). Studies show that it can actually increase the number of readily available players of your immune system: natural killer cells, dendritic cells, and cytokines.3

These are of utmost importance for the immune system to respond to infections and tumor growth.

A landmark study shows that AHCC® is a tool for responding to HPV

2020 marked a new understanding of the relationship between AHCC® and HPV, in particular with the landmark study of Dr. Judith A. Smith. By both acting as an antiviral agent and by helping to strengthen your natural immunity, AHCC® by Papillex® supports your body in creating a string immune system response.

Dr. Judith A. Smith, a highly-regarded faculty member and professor at various academic institutions in the United States, has pioneered novel trials on AHCC® in clearing HPV. Preliminary analysis of her Phase II clinical trial involving 50 participants shows a 63.4% clearance rate of HPV infection after 6 months of supplementing with AHCC®.2

Her pilot studies proposed that AHCC® was able to ultimately increase interferon-γ, a major player in activating the immune system’s antiviral response.

Power up AHCC® with Papillex®

Papillex® is a proactive method to top up on nutrients that have been shown to be missing or low in people with reduced immunity.
