• N-ACETYL-L-CYSTEINE (NAC) contains 500 mg of the highest-quality (USP grade) n-acetyl-l-cysteine in a preservative-free gelatin capsule.
• NAC is a powerful free radical scavenger. Orally-ingested NAC rapidly undergoes deacetylation to form L-cysteine. L-cysteine is necessary for glutathione production.
• The role of NAC in glutathione production has powerful implications for improving immune function, increasing the body's free radical trapping capacity, and for the therapeutic use of NAC in diseases such as AIDS and cancer.
• NAC also has been used with good results in treating respiratory illness and disease. NAC has well-known mucolytic properties and has been shown to increase mucociliary transport in smokers.
