Product Overview

Description

  • Dietary Supplement

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) for liver support, detoxification, and immune support

  • Well recognized for its detoxification capability in the liver
  • Known for its antioxidant activity
  • Supports good respiratory health by optimizing the thickness of mucus
  • Increases glutathione, a key antioxidant and detoxification factor in the body

N-acetylcysteine (NAC), a sulfur-containing amino acid, is the precursor of the amino acids L-cysteine and glutathione. Animal and human studies of NAC show it to have powerful antioxidant activity. In addition to antioxidant activity, NAC is effective in promoting normal liver detoxification.

As a sulfur source, NAC stimulates glutathione (an important antioxidant produced in the body) synthesis and activity, promotes liver detoxification, and is a powerful molecule capable of scavenging free radicals.

Research suggests NAC is capable of enhancing immunity. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, NAC was shown to positively impact lymphocyte cell numbers.

NAC helps maintain good pulmonary health due to its mucolytic activity. NAC's sulfur cleaves bonds in mucoproteins, causing mucus to be subsequently broken into smaller, less viscous pieces. NAC has been noted to decrease the viscoelasticity of nasal mucus and increase the clearance of mucus by the cilia by thinning of secretions, thus helping maintain good pulmonary health

Take 1 capsules two to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide.

Great stuff

Posted by Reviewer3246882 on May 22, 2016 | Verified Purchase

This boosts glutathione and also thins mucus, among other things. I wouldn't be without it in the house. Has been very helpful in helping me manage a recurring sinus infection/inflammation. Keeps mucus fluid instead of getting sticky and clogging my sinuses. Improves the generalized malaise from a virus so I don't have to take NSAIDs.

No, does not contain phtalate!

Unlike the previous reviewer, I realize that in chemistry, names can sometimes sound similar, yet be completely different compounds. This product contains Hypromellose, which is hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC). It is used to make capsules. It is NOT THE SAME as Hypromellose Phthalate (HPMCP), which is an enteric coating. The "P" in "HPCMP" is sort of an important distinction.

Unfortunately, has Hypromellose (aka HPMC) in it.

I did not realize that this product has Hypromellose in it, which is a bad phthalate.
