N-Acetyl Cysteine, 180 capsules
NAC supplies N-acetyl-L-cysteine‚ a derivative of L-Cysteine‚ which is more stable and better absorbed than L-Cysteine. NAC functions as a potent antioxidant. As the precursor to glutathione intracellular synthesis‚ it is essential for the synthesis of glutathione. Glutathione is a critical component of the immune system‚ as it is an important intracellular water-soluble antioxidant. As part of this function‚ glutathione plays a vital role as the cofactor for the antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and glutathione transferase. Glutathione is also important to the liver‚ as the liver utilizes it for drug detoxification. As a metabolite of cysteine‚ NAC plays an important role in detoxification‚ and is hepatoprotective. NAC functions in protecting cells against oxidative stress‚ and contributes to important bodily reactions.
