N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is a more stable form of the amino acid L-Cysteine and is the most effective way to increase glutathione levels in the body. NAC is a more stable form of L-Cysteine because it has an acetyl group (CH3CO) attached to it. NAC has all the properties of L-Cysteine, but is more water soluble and will be more bioavailable than L-Cysteine.
NAC is part of glutathione, an important antioxidant scientifically proven to scavenge free radicals. NAC has the unique ability to maintain healthy lung tissue, support the body's natural defenses and improve cellular health and longevity. These qualities make NAC particularly beneficial for active people, the elderly and those exposed to polluted environments.
What makes NAC so effective as a glutathione enhancer is the fact that it is a stable amino acid that can retain up to six times the amount of sulfur and sulfhydryl groups after digestion. Scientists believe that sulfur and sulfur compounds may be central to glutathione. This is critical to the life functions of the body as NAC helps the body neutralize toxins, heavy metals, such as mercury from amalgam fillings, cadmium and lead from paint and cigarette smoke. Sulfhydryl balance has also been associated with increasing resistance to viral infections.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) provides powerful immune system support and also has powerful anti-toxin potential. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine has the ability to neutralize cell and DNA damaging free radicals.
NAC has been shown to play a protective role against a variety of toxic hazards, such as cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, certain weed killers, and acetaminophen overdoses. It may also play a beneficial role in prostate and respiratory diseases. For example, NAC has proven anti-mucolytic (expectorant) properties and has been shown to increase mucosal transport in smokers.
