- 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.
- NAC also has been used with good results in support of healthy lung function. NAC has well-known mucolytic properties and has been shown to increase mucociliary transport.
