Dinner out. Theatre tickets. Dancing. These are universal gifts and symbols of love and happiness. Whether it’s for a special birthday, a milestone accomplished, the coming together with good friends, or just your standard Friday night “date night” - there is nothing quite like getting out to celebrate.Read More
Welcome to the AHCC Research Blog!
During the month of February, our thoughts are typically with our loved ones. It seemed that everywhere you went last month, you saw red cards, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates and beautiful bouquets of flowers. While these gifts are a great way to show your loved ones how important they are to you - what if you could give them an even better gift?Read More
It’s kind of like clockwork, as the cool winter weather arrives so do the sniffles, coughing, sore throats, and sneezing. Why does this happen? It’s no secret that the common cold is a conundrum for doctors and researchers - but a recent study is shedding some light on why we’re more likely to catch a cold in the winter than in the summer.Read More
Sneezing. Coughing. Achy joints. Fevers. Chills. Headaches. Sore throat. Trouble sleeping. Fatigue.
It probably seems like everyone around you is sneezing, coughing, sniffling and generally feeling unwell. Once again, we’re deep in the middle of a tough cold and flu season. This season in particular is a tough one with the flu shot having just a 23% effectiveness rate and lots of us contracting colds and flus that are lasting longer than normal.
The human papillomavirus (HPV) is a very common virus but, it is one that is still not widely understood or openly discussed. Because this virus is more common than most people realize, it’s important that teens, young adults, parents and the general public have a clear understanding of HPV.
Awareness of human papillomavirus (HPV) is on the rise, but so many of us don't really understand the facts about this sexually transmitted disease. While there have been extensive public campaigns to highlight how common this sexually transmitted disease is, most people who are at-risk don’t have the information they need to protect themselves.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a startlingly common sexually transmitted disease. In fact, experts estimate that around 70% of sexually active adults will contract the virus at some point in their lives. Up until very recently, the treatment for this widespread condition dealt only with preventing the HPV infection or minimizing the symptoms; both doctors and their patients were resigned to the thought that there was no cure for HPV. New research, however, suggests that Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) could be an effective and natural treatment for HPV.
Following the pattern that we've seen form over the past few years, the prediction seems bleak for the 2014 winter season. According to the Farmer's Almanac – as well as other weather forecasters – much of the United States can expect unusually cold and harsh conditions over the next few months. But, along with having to struggle against the snow, ice and cold, there is another concern that comes along with such a severe winter: flu and cold season.
New research presented on March 23rd at the Society of Gynecological Oncology 45th Annual Meeting in Tampa, Florida, shows that cervical cancer cells in mice treated with AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound), a Japanese mushroom extract, led to the eradication of human papillomavirus (HPV) as well as decreased tumor growth.
