Immunity is the natural line of defense for human health
Our body is composed of 60 trillion cells. Newly generated cells are constantly circulating and regenerating. For example, hair cells, gastrointestinal cells, blood cells, etc., are cells that divide and regenerate relatively quickly, so these cells are particularly easy Affected by anti-critical treatment drugs.
For example, the gastrointestinal tract and blood are the basic life-sustaining systems. If healthy cells are damaged by chemotherapy, side effects will occur, including: hair loss, decreased immunity, damage to hematopoietic function, and decreased digestion and absorption capacity.
Our human immune system plays the role of a police officer, responsible for removing trash from the body (such as apoptotic cells), killing traitors (tumor cells), and defending against foreign enemies (viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms).
Take cancer as an example. Tumor cells originate from normal cells. When our normal cells divide, the DNA structure will be opened to complete replication. In this process, under the influence of toxic carcinogens in the environment or in the body, replication may go wrong, which may lead to gene mutations. When gene mutations accumulate to a certain degree, cancer can occur.
If our immune function is normal, the immune cells will find these precancerous cells before they become cancerous, and then destroy them to prevent cancer.
The powerful side effects of treatment are very painful for patients without the support of the immune system. Because of the low immunity, it is difficult to resist severe treatment in many cases. In severe cases, chemotherapy must be stopped.
It is undeniable that improving immunity is the key to dealing with severe illness.
What is AHCC?
The immune response mainly relies on the macrophages (white blood cells) in the human body to search the whole body to find and destroy the target (harmful bacteria). Unfortunately, these “special forces (macrophages)” are always incapable of being on duty – they must be activated before they can work.
AHCC regulates the ability of immune cells by activating white blood cells and lymphocytes, and directly attacks abnormal cells, viruses, and bacterial pathogens that invade the body.
AHCC will not directly kill mutant cells like chemotherapy drugs, but by stimulating the activity of immune cells, enhance or strengthen the body’s natural healing ability, and indirectly produce anti-severe effects.
Since AHCC is a low molecular weight acetylated α-glucan, it can increase the ability of NK cells to kill bad cells hundreds of times.
