N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that supports detoxification, reduces oxidative stress, and helps stabilize blood sugar. NAC aids the body's phase II detoxification pathways, glutathione conjugation and sulphation.
By providing the limiting factor in glutathione synthesis, NAC helps to restore intracellular glutathione levels.*
Since NAC plays a major role in detoxification, it may offer protection against daily exposure to environmental contaminants and toxins.*
Promotes healthy glutathione levels*
Supports detoxification pathways*
Helps loosen and clear mucous*
NAC is not found in food but is a specially derived form of the sulfur-containing amino acid L-cysteine. NAC is more stable than L-cysteine and may be better absorbed. NAC is mucolytic and hepatoprotectant. NAC also has antioxidant activity.
NAC supports respiratory health by reducing disulfide bonds in mucoproteins; thinning mucus and making it easier to expel. It can be helpful for excessive and/or thick mucus production.
Historically used to treat acetaminophen overdose, NAC is a powerful agent for liver detoxification. NAC aids the body’s Phase II detoxification pathways, glutathione conjugation and sulfation, that rid the body of environmental contaminants and toxins.
NAC has antioxidant capability on its own and is also the precursor for the important antioxidant L-glutathione. NAC helps to restore intracellular glutathione levels, protecting tissues from peroxidation and supporting normal immune function.
