By now you know that mushroom extract AHCC can help to eradicate HPV virus, however some frequently asked questions like below may still lurk in your mind:
What is the recommended AHCC HPV dosage?
How much supplement to take – at once or in split doses?
Take AHCC on an empty stomach or after food?
Let’s get right into it.
AHCC HPV Dosage: How Much Supplement Amount To Take?
When Dr. Judith Smith of UTHealth conducted the pilot study on women with persistent HPV infections for 18 months or more, a key objective of the research was to determine the Active Hexose Correlated Compound dosage for HPV treatment.
- 10 women took 3 grams of AHCC in capsules daily on empty stomach, for up to 6 months.
- 5 patients were tested HPV negative after consuming oral AHCC once-daily, with 3 of them showed complete eradication of HPV after stopped taking AHCC.
The phase 2 study is on-going, with ClinicalTrials.gov website by the U.S. National Institutes of Health indicates the same dose of “AHCC 3 grams once a day on an empty stomach x 6 months“.
While clinical studies above used 3 grams (or 3000mg) of AHCC for HPV treatment, International Journal of Clinical Medicine also indicated similar AHCC dosage for cancer patients:
“AHCC up to 3 grams is safe to administer and definitely helps cancer patients in reducing side effects of chemotherapeutic drugs“
The popular AHCC dietary supplement brands in the market are normally available in the form of 500mg AHCC per capsule or 750mg AHCC per capsule.
For total AHCC dosage of 3 grams daily up to 6 months as complementary HPV treatment:
- Take 4 capsules x 750mg AHCC each = 3000mg AHCC daily, OR
- Take 6 capsules x 500mg AHCC each = 3000mg AHCC every day.

How to Take AHCC for HPV: At Once or Split Doses? Empty Stomach?
The recommended dosage is taking all 3 grams of AHCC every morning on an empty stomach.
However, as consuming all the 4 to 6 AHCC pills at once may not be too comfortable for some people —
there are AHCC users who tried split doses on an empty stomach whilst also achieved good results in clearing the HPV from body system, tested negative, and with cervical dysplasia gone.
For example, you can take 1.5gram (1500mg) in the morning, and another 1.5gram (1500mg) in the afternoon/evening on an empty stomach.
In case you are wondering what’s the definition of taking supplement on an “empty stomach”, especially when you are consuming AHCC in the afternoon or evening —
According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health:
“Taking medicines on an empty stomach means that you should take your pills 2 hours before you eat or 2 hours after you eat.”
It is recommended to take this dietary supplement “on an empty stomach” or “before food”, because taking AHCC together with food may reduce the effectiveness of how your intestines and stomach absorb the AHCC compound, while it is not fully known whether some food and drinks may potentially interact and affect the way AHCC works in your body.
