I have given this product to my husband since he was treated for lymphoma - two kinds - one was stage 4. Chemo about did him in. He has taken AHCC for over five years. The cancer doctor said recently he didn't ever want to see him again! This was wonderful news. I strongly feel AHCC contributed to his keeping cancer at bay for so long. Interestingly, I ran out last month and my husband went five days without it. He got a terrible cold! He hasn't had a cold for five years! Believe me, we will not run out of it again!

For immunity It definately works, but runs out too quick when taking 4-6 a day! I suffer from hepatitis C and this felt extremely soothing. Only thing is ive just run out and cant afford to get more. So 4 stars. If i was a millionaire i would live (very long and well) on this!

I have something called Recurrent Respiratory Papilloma; a rare strain of the HPV virus which causes warts on my vocal cords. I'm taking this as there have been some preliminary tests on AHCC and the HPV virus which has shown complete eradication of it. I believe I need to take these for 6 months before getting tested, so we'll see if it works... I'll be sure to update my review either way. Overall they're a great product - expensive though! The main thing they do is act as an immunity booster... I'm routinely sick (sore throats, stuffed nose, common colds and flu)... I've had no illnesses since I started using this. People have commented on that more than anything. So, if you're looking for a sure fire way to prevent illness (of a common kind) then these are for you. Re the HPV side of things - only time will tell.

These capsules (Kinoko Gold AHCC 500 mg) were recommended as enhancing alertness and mental stamina in an octogenarian recovering from serious illness. They seem to have done that, though there's no controlling evidence or testimony. I found them well worth the price.

I have type 2 Diabetes and sometimes have gum sores / infection if my blood sugar is high, taking antibiotics cured it temporarily for a while and I was looking for a more permanent solution. I have started taking this along with Beta-1,3/1,6-D-Glucan for the past 3 weeks and the gum sores and infection have not only gone but have not reappeared. I am also trying this to reduce cholesterol and maintain blood sugar and feel the blood sugar control is better - I will be doing lipid testing in 4 weeks to see if my cholesterol levels have gone down from the current 240 as I refuse to take statin drugs.(MHK)

I haven't completed the first bottle yet so its probably too early to tell, I also take Beta - 1,3/1,6-D-Glucan.

on my second bottle seems to be helping but I have multiple problems(gout,chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia,chronic constipation and bleeding hemorrhoids, anemia and so on. I do feel a little more energy. I'm also on 5-htp which helps me sleep better at night.
