Is shiitake mushroom extract the same as AHCC?

 I saw an article called "AHCC vs mushroom supplements" and I'm a bit confused because I thought AHCC WAS a mushroom supplement. Does it matter what kind of medicinal mushroom is used to make AHCC, and if so, then how does AHCC made from shiitake mushroom differ from other mushrooms?

Avik Das (Monday, September 27, 2021:

Yes, the AHCC or Active Hexose Correlated Compound extract comes from shiitake mushroom, and they can be purchased as supplements. So, shiitake mushroom extract is the same as AHCC. It certainly matters where it comes from because AHCC with shiitake mushroom extract in it has several proven benefits, making it an incredible natural supplement.
