Key Players of Innate Immunity:
• Cytokines: Chemical messengers that help immune cells communicate and coordinate an immune response
• Natural killer (NK) cells: White blood cells (WBC) that recognize and destroy infected or abnormal cells by injecting granules into them, causing them to explode
• Macrophages: WBC that engulf and ingest bacteria and cellular debris
• Dendritic cells: WBC that present foreign substances to B and T cells, initiating an adaptive response
• B and T cells: Both B cells (which mature in bone marrow) and T cells (which mature in the thymus) are lymphocytes, WBC that are able to recognize previous invaders and destroy them with a specific response
AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is obtained from Shiitake mushroom which is well known for its immune modulating activity. AHCC is a powerful antioxidant which aggressively combats free radicals thus boosting the immune system. The compound was first developed in Japan.
AHCC Pro™ is a unique, synergistic blend of AHCC + Beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan + Arabinogalactan with antioxidant and immune boosting properties. There is significant recent evidence that beta-1,3/1,6-Glucan and Arabinogalactan also have immunologic properties.
The ingredients are encapsulated in a delayed release (DR) vegetarian capsule to minimize the impact of stomach acids (increase absorption).
