  1. Mushroom supplements are not claimed to have therapeutic effects. But then again, they surely help a lot in disease prevention and body maintenance. ABM, particularly, lowers the risk of heart attack!

  2. AHCC should be used with care - it is a 'proprietary' product with side effects and it does not give any better results than a mono-mushroom supplement. Recommended are e.g. Agaricus blazei and Chaga, but also there's some infor that the Cordyceps sinensis works well. All of these have a normalizing effect on the immune system and according to research really impressive results have been achieved when using them to deal with auto-immune disorders like psoriasis, allergies and lupus. It is very important though to buy a good product, meaning an extract with a clear indication of the bioactive ingredients.

    I can recommend this great source of downloadable research articles for those that want to know more: http:..oriveda.com/resources.php
