N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a stable form of the non-essential amino acid L-Cysteine. It is a sulphur-containing amino acid that acts as a stabiliser for the formation of protein structures, and promotes the formation of glutathione. Glutathione is a powerful free radical scavenging compound that also helps to maintain normal, balanced immune system function. In addition, NAC can help to support healthy brain and neuronal tissues, respiratory health, and can also have kidney-protective effects.
Caution: Consult physician if pregnant/nursing, if using for anyone under 18 years of age, taking medication (especially nitroglycerin), or have a medical condition.
