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.*
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. (US Orders Only; Thorne Does Not Ship to Canada)
