Increase my stamina and clear my lungs
Posted by TinVal on Aug 16, 2012
Some hospitals use NAC to reduce mucus in the lungs and improve breathing in patients with chronic bronchitis and COPD.
Good but can be better as well!

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 absorb 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 cross 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. This product comes with the most bioavailable selenium and molybdenum as well. Not that it is bad, I would prefer a product without them so that I can dose accordingly. As for the price, it is quite cheap considering that you are getting 250 vcaps. As for the recommended dosage, 2 caps are reasonable (lasting over 4 months!). More can be taken if needed without being too expensive. The caps are vegetarian, not too big and easy to swallow.

Recently there has been a scare with the prospects of elevated radiation. My research indicated that low-level radiation depletes the body of anti-oxidants. NAC is the precursor of Glutathione, which is the mother of all anti-oxiants. For the thyroid, a simple drop of iodine on the skin at night will supply the thyroid with plenty of benign iodine and prevent the uptake of radioactive iodine. Further, when the thyroid is saturated, the iodine will be left on the skin so no harm is caused by overdose.

I take NAC, two capsules 1000 mg, about twice a day during allergy season. It really helps. I also use Source Naturals Allercetin as a back-up. With these two remedies I haven't had to do allergy shots in 10 years and I still keep clear sinuses.

I bought this because from my knowledge (medical research on pubmed etc.) it should help for : -autoimmune diseases (according to research 2400 mg daily or more), -obsessive–compulsive disorder, -boosting immune system against infections, I have spectacular results in one of these: I have colitis ulcerosa and for 7 years I had infection in the bowels, I couldn't take antibiotics but even if I took them they didn't work. This suplement CURED the infection in bowels. Just CURED. I don't know how. It's like magic. First I took too much of it (more than is recomended here). I took 4 capsules the first day and I got swelled. I felt like I had flu as well (headache, joint pains). It lasted 2 or 3 days. (I reduces the doses to 1-2 capsules daily). after that infection in my bowels which lasted 7 years just disappeared. I think this must be good for any other infections as well.

I've trusted Now Foods to give me quality products at a great value and this is no different. I am taking it for PCOS but it is too early to see if this is of benefit to me. The capsules are easy to take and free of some serious food allergies I must avoid including soy, casein and gluten. I appreciate that it's easy to find a list of what allergens are not in this product too which makes shopping a breeze.

I take this with MSM and chlorella or alfalfa to ward off allergies. Works great.
