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!

Inferior to some other brands as it contains magnesium stearate (which interferes with the immune system). I use it to shrink endometriomas, (from endometriosis) and for PCOS. It causes me sleeping problems but its effect is different for everybody . It excretes zinc and molybdenum so these should be taken either through food or through supplement.
good foe me!!!
