N-Acetyl Cysteine

N-Acetyl Cysteine or “NAC” as it is commonly called, has been extensively researched for its antioxidant properties especially in its ability to neutralize the chemical by-products associated with environmental exposures.  Some of these exposures are the result of everyday contaminants in the items listed below:

  • Second hand smoke
  • Air fresheners, deodorizers, candles
  • Lawn pesticides (& chemical drift from pesticide applications)
  • Cleaning products
  • Gasoline & Kerosene fumes from power equipment
  • Chemicals produced from backyard burning
  • Building materials (carpet & paint)

NAC is easily converted to glutathione ( pronounced “gloota-thigh-own” ) which is the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more.  Glutathione is sometimes called the mother of all antioxidants and, coupled with its stability and long half life in the body, makes it a very economical and powerful antioxidant.
