Shiitake mushroom is a common edible mushroom, not only delicious, but also rich in nutrients, rich in protein, vitamins and minerals and other nutrients. According to research in the United States, AHCC, a component in shiitake mushrooms, plays an important role in women’s health. It can effectively prevent HPV from invading the human body and prevent cervical cancer.
Cervical cancer is mainly caused by HPV infection
Cervical cancer is a common female cancer mainly caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. According to the British “Daily Mail” report, human papillomavirus (HPV) is a highly contagious virus that is transmitted through direct skin contact or sexual intercourse.

About 3 out of 4 women will be infected with HPV, but only some strains can cause diseases such as cervical cancer.
Study: Shiitake Mushrooms Can Suppress Cervical Cancer Tumor Growth
In addition to being associated with 99.7% of cervical cancers, other related cancers include 95% of anal cancers, 60% of throat cancers, 65% of vaginal cancers, and 35% of penile cancers. Experimental studies on mice in the United States have found that “active hexose” (AHCC) in Japanese shiitake mushrooms can eliminate HPV virus within 90 days, and can also inhibit the growth of cervical cancer tumor cells.
A research professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center School of Medicine also pointed out that the results of this study, which began in 2008, confirmed that AHCC can increase natural killer cells, dendritic cells ) and the number of cytokines (cytokines), increase the body’s immunity against tumor cells.
The AHCC extract in shiitake mushrooms can effectively eliminate HPV cancer cells.
AHCC has long been used as a nutritional supplement in Japan. According to Wikipedia, AHCC is a legal “functional food” that has been widely studied in Japan, China, Korea, Thailand, Spain and the United States. In Japan, AHCC is often used by cancer patients supplements and alternative medicines.
The nutritional supplements made from shiitake mushroom extracts may be difficult for ordinary people to consume every day, but eating mushrooms directly can also get good health benefits. Mushrooms are rich in vitamin D, and the content is the highest after exposure to the sun. The rich selenium is also Can resist oxidation and remove free radicals in the body.
