NAC is known to boost glutathione, one of the most powerful antioxidant produced naturally by the body. NAC is one of the best and cheaper way to boost glutathione as taking glutathione does not work when taken orally since it is too big to pas s through intestine wall. Other than trying to boost your antioxidants level in various parts of the body individually, boosting glutathione is simply easier and better as it can easily cros s to various parts of the body and recharges other antioxidants as compared to antioxidants that can only work in specific area. Glutathione also support and boost your immune system, protects our cells from damage from environmental toxic and eliminate carcinogens. Our glutathione declines naturally as we age so the importance of taking NAC gets more important as well. As for the price, it is quite cheap considering that you are getting 200 vcaps. As for the recommended dosage, 2 caps are reasonable (lasting over 3 months!). More can be taken if needed without being too expensive. The caps are made of gelatin (not for vegetarian), not too big and easy to swallow. The product does contain magnesium stearate. Whether there is any health effects from magnesium stearate like claimed, it is highly debateable. Check out my page for more reviews!
High quality with the best price per gram. This works like magic to clear chest mucous congestion. Take on an empty stomach. It thins out or reduces mucus viscosity so that it can be cough up and cleared from the chest and throat. Take in the morning and mid day to allow clearing of congestion from flu or colds. Do not take it at night because it will allow mucous to flow constantly and in a stepping position this will cause constant coughing.

This product sent me straight to the toilet and had a very strong unpleasant smell. Threw it away.
Pharmaceutical Grade but too strong for me

This product is obviously very pure. It has the same smell of the NAC I've bought from pharmacies and is a really great price so it's taken some modification and I'm still experimenting to get the dose right. I started at 2000mg, taken in two doses which is the recommended dose for NAC for anxiety and depression, but it was way way too strong. I felt very foggy and far away so I wrote it off. However, it was so effective for sleep and for bowel movements (as the medication I take is incredibly constipating) and when I went off of it, I could feel the withdrawal. So I've cut down on sleep meds, which is wonderful and I'm just taking 500mg at night and taking another brand of NAC, which is much less potent, during the day. So far so good. This is obviously a very good brand and cost effective, it's just so potent that I still need to experiment with the dosage. Eventually I'd love to just be taking this stuff.
