I was very excited to review this product, as I like any natural way to boost my immune system, particularly during cold and flu seasons. Well imagine my surprise when I opened up my boost box, and received not only a bottle of Kinoko AHCC, but also a box of Stash Green Tea, a Sudoku Puzzle Book, and a beautiful bracelet. Wow, I was blessed.
I received my review product just as colds and flu where making their way through my house. I decided that I would use it to see if it would fend off some of those pesky and unwelcome cold germs. By using the easy to swallow tablets in the same manner as a daily vitamin supplement, I was able to remain health and never did catch the colds and flu that my girls and husband did. I would like to hope that it was due, in part to the effects of Kinoko AHCC. I know that results will vary among users, and so cannot say it will work very everyone, but it did for me. Also, before starting any medication or supplement (as Kinoko AHCC is), please discuss it with your family doctor.
I highly recommend this product and give it a huge thumbs up.
