AHCC is derived from a highly specialized manufacturing process developed in the mid-1980s that relies on the hybridization of several species of mushrooms cultivated in Japan. According to industry analysts in Japan, currently over 700 hospitals and medical clinics recommend AHCC to patients in that country as part of an immune support regimen. AHCC has been the subject of numerous clinical studies conducted at prestigious Japanese institutions such as Hokkaido University, Kyorin University and Teikyo University.
