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. *

NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine)

600 mg

 

Overview:

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. 

 

What is NAC?

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 hepatoprotective with significant antioxidant activity.

 

How does NAC Work?

NAC supports respiratory health by reducing disulfide bonds in mucoproteins. Since the 1960’s it has been known as a “mucolytic”, meaning it can cause reduced viscosity or thinning of mucus, making it easier to expel [1]. 

On a completely unrelated note, NAC has historically been used to treat acetaminophen overdose, as a powerful agent for liver detoxification. It functions by replenishing and substituting for GSH, a tripeptide made up of residues of amino acids glutamine, glycine, and cysteine [2]. Although GSH plays a major role in the cellular detoxification pathway and is involved in the detoxification of most endogenous and exogenous toxicants, it is often deficient in people who are immunocompromised for various reasons [2]. As a substitute/contributor to GSH availability, NAC aids the body’s Phase II detoxification pathways, glutathione conjugation, and sulfation, which rid the body of environmental contaminants and toxins.

NAC has antioxidant capabilities, both on its own and as the precursor for the important antioxidant L-glutathione [3]. NAC helps to restore intracellular glutathione levels, protecting tissues from peroxidation and supporting normal immune function [3].

NAC exerts a sensitizing effect on both the insulin secretion of pancreatic cells and on insulin receptors on human red blood cells [4]. This fact, in combination with the data showing NAC appears to have a protective effect on the ovary and preventive action against follicular atresia, has made NAC a suggested nutritional supplement for many women experiencing infertility due to polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) [4].

 

What is the Suggested Use for NAC?

·         Promotes healthy glutathione levels. Fight free radicals and cellular damage with this powerful antioxidant. Glutathione is also an immune              booster!

·         Supports detoxification pathways. Boost GSH activity to flush toxins from the body.

·         Helps loosen and clear mucus. Due to its mucolytic activity, NAC can be helpful for excessive and/or thick mucus production.

·         Improved insulin sensitivity and hormonal balance. May help to improve lipid profiles, fasting blood sugar, and fasting blood insulin levels,                improve hormonal profiles, and aid in regulating ovulation and fertility in hyperinsulinemic patients with PCOS [4,5].
