As we all know having a strong immunity system is paramount to fighting infections and attacking colds, flu, and many other ailments that we come down with. Especially during the winter months colds and virus’s rear their ugly heads a lot more often than in the summer. With having four children in school they are bound to come down with colds, viruses and many other virus’s and spread it to the rest of the family. With that said, this is why AHCC is something one should take to boost your immune system so that you do not get sick as often.

I was given the opportunity through Quality Of Life Labs to try a bottle of AHCC. I felt it gave my immunity system a great boost as I only came down with a cold since I have been taking it. It will not prevent you from ever getting sick. However, your immune system will be stronger and it will help prevent you from being sick longer and/or possibly coming down with any illness.

This is a suggested dosage.
Dosage range is between 1-3 grams per day. This equates to 1-3 bottles per month (60 capsules of 500mg). AHCC should be taken in divided doses on an empty stomach (30 minutes before meals or 2 hours after meals) for optimal absorption. For example, when taking 3 grams per day, take 3 capsules 30 minutes before breakfast and 3 before dinner. While the therapeutic dose is 3 grams per day, the maintenance dose is only 1 gram per day.
