Emerging health threats, environmental toxins, contamination of global food and water supplies—it’s no wonder people today feel a sense of urgency about their immune health. Source Naturals, which invented the wellness-immune category, has an arsenal of potent products that can help.
Scientific research is proving that some of the most powerful immune-supportive nutrients are found in mushrooms. And no other mushroom formula offers the high-potency, broad-spectrum benefits of Source Naturals Mushroom Immune Defense. Mushroom Immune Defense features 16 of the best-studied health-supportive mushrooms, including beta-glucans glycoproteins and polysaccharides, that support a wide range of immune defense: natural killer cell, T-cell and macrophage activity, and cytokine production. By combining a wide variety of mushrooms and fortifying them with extracts to ensure high potency, mushroom immune defense offers a bio-chemically diverse formula that provides optimum immune assistance.
Potent Immune System Support AHCC & AHCC Plus
Mushrooms have been valued for decades as immune enhancers. Only recently, however, has science identified specific mushroom compounds that augment natural defenses. Source Naturals AHCC (active hexose correlated compound) is a rich source of polysaccharides (Beta glucan 1,3 and activated hemicellulose) and glycoproteins, plus amino acids and minerals. It is produced by enzymatic modification of several mushrooms, including shiitake. AHCC has been extensively researched in Japan, where it has been found to significantly increase natural killer (NK) cell, macrophage and cytokine activity.
AHCC Plus combines AHCC with three powerful antioxidants: selenium, tocotrienols and gamma vitamin E. Some scientific evidence suggests consumption of selenium and antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, the FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive.
Source Naturals offers you the science of AHCC and AHCC Plus as part of our commitment to bring consumers the latest emerging wellness and immune boosting strategies.
