Fight Colds, Flu and Other Infections With... Mushrooms ~ Review & Rafflecopter Giveaway (11/23)

AHCC, Kinoko Gold
It’s the time to get your flu shots! That’s what I hear and see all the time. These days, this persistent call to get your flu shot happens almost all-year-round!

To tell you the truth, I do not get these flu shots at all. I totally rely on my knowledge and experience of herbal remedies, some coming from such afar as my childhood! I guess we learn and remember what our mom did when we were sick and carry this knowledge with us throughout life.

It’s incredible how much we depend on antibiotics and alike in medical innovations. In many instances these drugs are abused to the point that our human race has become resistant to them. That’s when a real scare comes: when we do not respond to drugs created specifically to treat horrible, contagious, life-threatening diseases and conditions.

Remember that MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infections that used to occur only in hospital settings, now pops up in healthy people in our living communities.

Such side-effects are the result of multiple equations. And there is no single answer Why it happens.

However, there are natural remedies and supplements that arm our immune system with natural respondents. With them, we go through flu, colds and other infections much easier and with a better attitude.

My long-time interest have been mushroom-based supplements. To be more specific the AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound.) While it sounds long and very scary, it is an extract obtained from a hybridization of several subspecies of mushroom mycelia.

What is impressive about this supplement is that it is used in over 1000 clinics worldwide as a standard preventative regimen for all incoming patients to reduce the risk of hospital infections. WoW! Did you know about that?

How AHCC Boosts Our Immunity?
By the myriad of clinical trials on animals and human subjects (over 50 on humans), AHCC has been proven to have no side effects and safe. Plus, it’s proven that AHCC  extract increases:
• Cytokine production. Cytokines are chemical messengers htat help immune cells communicate and coordinate an immune response.
• NK cell activity. NK cells are white blood cells that help your body fight all the pathogens when they invade it.
• Macrophage populations. Macrophages are while blood cells that ingest bacteria and cellular by-products.
• Dendritic cells. Dendritic cells are white blood cells help your body to identify infection and organize the response to it.
• T cell numbers and their activity. T cells are white blood cells that recognize the previous invaders within your body and thus prepared to fight them off quickly.

Thanks to Quality of Life Labs, I’ve already started taking AHCC to support and boost my immune system for the upcoming flu season and beyond. It’s like my daily vitamin for the immune system. I’ll let you know after the winter is over how I weathered it.
