Mycelcaps has significant supportive effects on the immune system. Mycelcaps has a high content of the patented compound Professional Grade AHCC, obtained from the mycelium of Shiitake fungi (mycelium - fungus). The Japanese Shiitake mushroom has the adjective "pearl among mushrooms", and has been considered a rare mushroom with high nutritional value in Asia for several centuries.
Although the effects of AHCC ® have not yet been officially approved in the European Register of Health Claims, the compound is the subject of extensive research, particularly in Japan (approximately 200 studies at 30 universities), and a number of articles and publications have been published. Researchers are investigating the effects of AHCC ® on high blood pressure, impaired immunity. They demonstrate the importance of AHCC ® for debilitated individuals, convalescents and people in stress. It has significant stimulatory and regulatory effects on the immune system.
The manufacturer innovated the patented AHCC substance and called it "Professional Grade AHCC". This new form is used by professionals in hospitals in Japan and the USA.
Compared to the previous version of the "Standard Grade AHCC", the innovation consists in a higher concentration of alpha-glucans (approx. 20-25%). These immunostimulators act to stimulate the whole protective system of the organism.
Higher proportion of adenosine
This active substance acts as a signal that, during infection, ensures that the immune cells transfer energy from the rest of the body - which is essential for an effective immune response, which is energy-intensive (called selfish immunity), where adenosine selfish signal by which they suppress the rest of the organism).
Increased carbohydrate GI content
It was discovered during the development of AHCC and patented as a new substance with physiological activity. It has effects that enhance immune responses, promotes the activation of macrophages (cells of innate immunity) and, in particular, the growth of cytokines (mediate the interaction between cells that take care of the immune response).
