An amino acid, N-Acetyl Cysteine has been shown in clinical studies to increase levels of cellular glutathione, the master antioxidant.
- Improves glutathione status
- Supports healthy respiratory function
- Supports cellular antioxidant activity
- Supports detoxification of environmental toxins and pollutants
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a precursor for the production of the antioxidant glutathione, known as the master antioxidant, and therefore supports antioxidant and cellular detoxification pathways in the body. NAC has been found to raise glutathione levels. Glutathione is an important antioxidant used in many different metabolic processes within the body. Glutathione has been termed “the master antioxidant” because of its ability to quench free radicals and protect cells from damage. Maintaining adequate levels is important to maintaining the health of the respiratory, hepatic, and immune systems. It is also important in supporting antioxidant protection of lipids and proteins and supporting the normal response to inflammation. NAC is commonly used as an agent to help clear sinus and airway congestion caused by mucus overproduction. It also supports antioxidant and cellular detoxification pathways in the body.
Each capsule of the N-Acetyl Cysteine formulation includes 600 mg of this versatile amino acid.
1 capsule per day or as recommended by your healthcare professional.
