    Hi Alicia,

    Welcome to the site. I did a quick search around the web for AHCC and could only really come up with this from a reputable website –

    https://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/integrative-medicine/herbs/ahcc

    And as far as a reputable source goes, MSKCC is pretty good! I only did some quick googling on AHCC as I had never come across it before, but I did see a ton of website, newspapers and people etc making claims about it’s benefits etc. I am not saying they are wrong, but there was a lack of what I would class as credible info available to read on it and that gets my alarm bells ringing if you know what I mean. Please be aware that there are a ton of claims made about a ton of things online and should your mum wish to try a supplement of any type please consult with the doctors and medical team before doing so.

    I hope that the MSKCC piece is of interest to you and I hope that your mums chemo goes well also. Please keep on coming back here and let us know how everything goes.

    My best wishes to you and your mum,

    Gavin

    Alicia…..I can’t answer the AHCC powder question however; make sure to tell physician of everything your mum is adding to her diet.

    Hoping for others to chime in on this.

    Hugs

    Hi,

    My mum is receiving chemotherapy and we are thinking about what supplementary vitamins she should take to boost her immune system.

    She is now taking_
    – B vitamin
    – Magnesium
    – Tumeric, concentrated in pills

    I read that some people take AHCC powder. Has anyone tried this or been recommended this?
    Are there some adverse effects?

    Thank you in advance!
