N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an antioxidant form of the amino acid cysteine. Our bodies use it to make glutathione peroxidase, an important antioxidant that protects cells from damage caused by oxidative stress. NAC raises glutathione peroxidase levels in the body better than taking glutathione alone. NAC and glutathione are important components of detoxification, helping to protect us from environmental toxins, pesticides and carcinogens as well as from the naturally occurring danger of oxidative stress, which weakens our immune systems and contributes to degenerative diseases.
NAC has many benefits including support for heart and neurological health as well as healthy hair and nails. It also helps support healthy respiratory function by breaking up mucous in the lungs and bronchial tubes. In addition, NAC is has immune benefits against viral infections.
