AHCC® and ProbioPure® from Quality of Life Review and Giveaway

quality of life ahcc immune supplement

Back in January, I was contacted by Quality of Life and asked to review a couple of their products. I had never heard of this company before, but the two products looked interesting. The first one, Kinoko Gold AHCC, (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) is a mushroom-based nutrient from Japan. Quality of Life says it is the most researched specialty immune supplement in the world. There have been more than 80 supporting research studies that show that AHCC can help strengthen the immune system and help fight off a wide range of threats, including infections, viruses and the flu. A recent clinical study from Michigan State University shows that AHCC enhances the power of the seasonal flu shot, making it even more effective against this potentially deadly virus. I have not read the study from Michigan State University, but I do believe that this nutritional supplement has helped me stay mostly well over this past winter. The only really bad cold I had was before I received it.

The second item Quality of Life sent me was a bottle of ProbioPure, a probiotic. It just so happened that my gastroenterologist had recommended to me to take a probiotic for an intestinal problem I was having back in December. This one was easy to take in a capsule form. It cleared up the diahrrea that I was having with no side effects like some other things I had taken in the past. The Quality of Life website says this about probiotics:

Probiotics have been proven to be helpful for many things including digestive health, inflammatory conditions and gastrointestinal infections. Research also shows that some strains of probiotics can be helpful in building up the immune system to ward off infections such as the flu. Several human studies have provided evidence that specific strains of probiotics are able to stimulate as well as regulate immune responses. For example, one clinical study among older adults vaccinated with the flu shot found that bifidobacterium longum BB536® helped activate NK cells and reduce the incidence of influenza infection and fever.

  1. I take probiotics daily and always looking for ways to improve my immunity – don’t like being sick!

  2. Sue Ellison says:

    I seem to catch every bug that;s going around, would love to try the immunity booster.

  3. Ttrockwood says:

    I would love to try the probiotic to help with my digestive issues!

  4. Thanks for the post! I’ve been looking for an immunity enhancer for a while… Echinacea is really overrated I think, doesn’t really work for me. One other thing: the flu being a “potentially deadly virus” is a little exagerated…. unless we speak of H1N1, or unless we speak of the flu in addition to auto-immune diseases, it seems to me that the flu is not deadly here in North America. What do you think?

  5. That’s interesting that MSU found AHCC enhances the power of the seasonal flu shot. It’s definitely worth looking into. Thanks, Karen.

  6. would love to try this.
