A potent antioxidant that supports liver detoxification and thins the mucus for improved respiration*
NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) is a potent amino acid that increases glutathione levels (for liver detoxification).* In addition to supporting respiratory health, it also has kidney-protective effects.*
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, NAC positively impacted lymphocyte cell numbers, white cells that are crucial to normal immune function.*
The sulfur in NAC is able to cleave the bonds in mucoproteins, which results in mucus being broken into smaller, less viscous pieces.* Hence, NAC's ability to decrease the viscoelasticity of nasal mucus and increase the clearance of mucus by the cilia by thinning secretions helps maintain good pulmonary health.*
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine 500 mg.
