Another little know benefit of Cysteine in its various forms such as N-Acetyl Cysteine is its ability to help detoxify the liver in the case of alcohol poisoning, more commonly known as a hangover. People tend to take a NSAID (nonsterodial, anti-inflammatory drugs) like aspirin or ibuprofen after heavy drinking and before bed, it is better to take L-Cysteine, or N-A-C, so as not to add insult to injury of the liver and digestive tract.

I have tried several brands of Chanca Piedra / Stone Breaker formulas and Raintree is not only efficacious, but it actually tastes good. I have tried other alternatives of this herb from Her Pharm and Jon Barron and although Jon Barron’s is the most powerful on the planet, you have to gag it down with juice or something to try to mask the powerful taste. I personally prefer to take it straight and not mess around with juice. Raintree is the only brand you can take straight from the bottle without gaging and just about throwing up. Chanca Piedra from Raintree is actually good tasting and dissolved 3 kidney stones that passed with no discomfort. I now take if for maintenance and limit oxialic acid foods.
