N-Acetyl-l-Cysteine (NAC) is a derivative of the dietary amino acid l-cysteine. NAC has a high affinity for lung tissue, which it supports through mucolytic and antioxidant action. By disrupting disulfide bonds, NAC thins mucus. It is a powerful free radical scavenger and thus supports the body's natural defense system. NAC supports tissue levels of glutathione, a key component of the antioxidant defense system. It also has the ability to help chelate heavy metals.
AC provides powerful nutritional support to cells as an antioxidant and specifically supports healthy lung functioning through its mucolytic capability.

Why take N-acetylcysteine (NAC)?

NAC has broad benefits to health. Because it contains both sulfur and the amino acid cysteine, NAC serves as a precursor to glutathione—a key antioxidant that provides protection against free radicals and toxins in the body. Due to its unique properties and numerous benefits, NAC is used in both conventional and alternative medicine. Every hospital emergency room stocks it as an antidote for acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol) poisoning. Large doses of acetaminophen, or chronic use at lower dosages, can destroy the liver’s ability to make glutathione, resulting in liver failure and death. NAC restores normal liver levels of glutathione and helps to heal the liver damage caused by acetaminophen. It’s also used in conventional medicine to break down large amounts of mucus, a common symptom of conditions such as emphysema, bronchitis, pneumonia, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
