Coyne Healthcare’s AHCC® is a highly specialised Japanese fermented shitake medicinal mushroom product that helps prime and modulate the immune system during the Prevention and Infection Phase of exposure to a virus. 

This shitake mushroom undergoes a special fermentation process that helps to potentiate the shitake mushroom, thereby making it highly effective in the body.


AHCC® is also a powerful antioxidant that aggressively combats free radicals. Lots of oxidative stress (too many oxidants and not enough anti-oxidants) is generated during a viral infection. It is essential that this is mopped-up efficiently by antioxidants for a better recovery outcome. 

Used by tens of thousands of healthy people worldwide, it is rich in alpha-glucans, which increase the compound’s absorption and efficacy.


AHCC® helps to prime the immune system and mop-up oxidative stress generated during a viral infection. There are clinical studies validating its anti-viral benefits.

In which phases of COVID can I use AHCC®?

Medicinal mushrooms are indicated to be used in the Prevention and Infection Phases only of The 4 Phases of COVID.

Phase 1: Prevention

AHCC® is best used to prime the immune system at the start of Winter or before viral exposure. Take 5 capsules for 3 consecutive days. This should help prime the immune system for 2-3 months.

Phase 2: Infection 

During an early active viral infection, AHCC® up to 10 capsules per day taken to lessen the severity of the viral infection. Caution needs to be applied if the person is prone to inflammation or has an over-excited immune system. 


AHCC® should not be used in the Escalating Inflammation and Recovery Phase because it might contribute to a cytokine storm in susceptible people.

Dr Kohei Homma's statement

In early February 2020, Dr Kohei Homma, the manufacturer of AHCC®, provided the statement below about the expected efficacy of AHCC® for the coronavirus. He has since also confirmed that Aminpo-UP Japan has donated AHCC® products to medical doctors and nurses working in Wuhan for their own use, with the authorization of the Chinese Government.

"AHCC® (a standardized extract of cultured Lentinula edodes mycelia) has been studied about its efficacy for different types of bacterial and viral infectious diseases such as West Nile virus, influenza virus, hepatitis virus, and human papillomavirus (HPV).

In those studies, it was shown that natural killer (NK) cells, natural killer (TNKT) cells, and gamma delta T cells, are modulated and activated by AHCC® intake, so the efficacy of AHCC® for infectious diseases is considered as an activation of host innate immunity which is responsible for the initial defence of the immune system (the Prevention and Infection Phase of a viral infection).

In addition, such immunomodulatory effects of AHCC® are studied and reported in other types of diseases.

Therefore, although AHCC® efficacy is not specifically evaluated for coronavirus, AHCC® is expected to be effective in prevention and clearance of various infectious pathogens including coronavirus, by modulating and optimizing host immune functions."


AHCC® is used alongside chemotherapy treatments in many Japanese hospitals for its immune-supportive effects. The majority of studies showed reduced side effects, increased quality of life and improved survival rates. Patients taking AHCC® reported less nausea, vomiting and hair loss, while the compound also improved their body weight and appetite during chemotherapy treatment.
