N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a non-essential, free form amino acid that is a highly stable form of cysteine.*
NAC is necessary for the production of glutathione, an antioxidant produced by the body.*
Glutathione helps the body cope with oxidative stress, which is associated with disease and improves the number and activity of immune cells within the body.*
The free radical neutralizing properties of NAC might also help it support pulmonary and cardiac function.*
NAC helps to support healthy lung tissue and the body’s natural defenses including cellular health.*
NAC helps to break down mucus in the respiratory tract and helps with rebuilding of lung tissue, and helps support the activation of immune cells to support the immunity.*
NAC seems to be able to help clear mucus from the body as a result of several different mechanisms. NAC ruptures mucus disulfide bonds, which reduces mucus viscosity, and it stimulates clearance of mucus from the respiratory tract.* NAC also appears to help maintain inflammatoryprocesses within normal ranges.*
