Natural Amino Acid Precursor to the Potent Antioxidant Glutathione
N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that is a precursor to glutathione, the body’s most powerful antioxidant which helps support optimal liver
detoxification, healthy lungs, metabolic and reproductive health, neurological health, and muscle recovery. NAC is prominently found in Allium plant species, especially onions, and is more bio-available than supplemental glutathione itself.
Liver Health – Manufactured by the liver, glutathione is a key compound used by the liver to help protect the body from normal exposure to harmful substances, such as chemicals, pollutants and heavy metals. NAC has also been shown to protect the liver from excessive alcohol use and acetaminophen poisoning, as well as against the accumulation of free radicals.* When glutathione levels are low, the liver is vulnerable to damage from these toxins. Therefore, NAC assists the body in maintaining proper levels of glutathione in order to help the natural detoxification process.*
Lung Health – NAC works to break up sulfide bonds that are responsible for thickening mucus. By supporting healthy mucus viscosity, NAC helps maintain normal breathing patterns and supports healthy lung function.*
Muscle Recovery – After a strenuous workout, damaging free radicals abound 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. Therefore, NAC can support efficient muscle recovery after workouts and periods of muscle exertion.*
As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
