What is N-Acetyl Cysteine?
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an antioxidant that scavenges free radicals and promotes liver detoxification. NAC has been shown to increase production of glutathione, an important antioxidant found in the body. In addition to its antioxidant activity, glutathione boosts the immune system by activating T-cells, helping to maintain immune balance.
NAC is also commonly used to support liver and gut health. NAC is an effective precursor to the major antioxidant in the body and has been shown to increase intracellular glutathione levels. NAC also stimulates a specific detoxification pathway in the liver called glutathione conjugation.
