N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is a potent amino acid precursor to glutathione (GSH), one of the body’s most powerful intracellular antioxidants, which supports optimal phase II hepatic biotransformation (liver detoxification)
NAC is the most stable nutritional supplement form of the amino acid L-cysteine and has a few important roles in the body:
- plays a critical role in supporting lung health for respiration – it works to break up sulfide bonds that are responsible for thickening mucus, and by supporting healthy mucus viscosity NAC helps maintain normal breathing patterns and supports healthy lung function. When faced with a viral pandemic that threatens our lungs this key supplement might help keep you healthy!
- is used for rapid muscle recovery post-workout as damaging free radicals abound after a strenuous workout, as a natural result of vigorous muscle contractions. While the master antioxidant, glutathione, diligently works to scavenge the excess free radicals, NAC quickly rebuilds the body’s glutathione supply.
- is used as a cytoprotectant against a vast array of pro-oxidative insults and inflammatory etiopathology
- is beneficial for protection against exposure to heavy metals and other harmful toxicants due to the presence of a sulfhydryl group (-SH)
NAC is prominently found in Allium plant species, especially onions, and is more bioavailable than supplemental Gluthathione (GSH) itself.
