N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)
N-acetyl cysteine comes from the amino acid L-cysteine. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. N-acetyl cysteine has many uses as medicine.
How does NAC help the body?
- free radical protection; a powerful antioxident
- helps sustain both cysteine levels in the blood, and glutathione levels inside the cells, a major antioxidant
- replenishes levels of antioxidant glutathione (GSH), which is often deficient with age and in chronic illness
- improves insulin sensitivity
- helps support cellular health and liver function
