N-Acetyl Cysteine

NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) is an amino acid that boosts antioxidant function and is commonly used as an agent to help clear sinus and airway congestion caused by mucus overproduction.
NAC
is a source of the conditionally essential amino acid L-cysteine and is a precursor to the tripeptide glutathione, an essential intracellular antioxidant, and therefore supports antioxidant and cellular detoxification pathways in the body. In addition, a growing body of research also highlights the role of NAC in supporting neuropsychiatric health.

N-Acetyl cysteine is one of the few antioxidants found to raise glutathione levels.

  • Glutathione is an important antioxidant used in many different metabolic processes within the body. Maintaining adequate levels is important to maintaining the health of the respiratory, hepatic and immune systems. It is also important in supporting antioxidant protection of lipids and proteins and supporting the normal response to inflammation.1-7
  • Glutathione is not well absorbed by the body when taken orally, so it can be difficult to sustain adequate glutathione levels. NAC has been shown to significantly increase glutathione levels.
  • NAC is also capable of reducing the viscosity of mucous and is also used to support respiratory and pulmonary health.


Benefits of NAC*

  • ​Essential for Making the Powerful Antioxidant Glutathione

          NAC helps replenish glutathione, arguably your body’s most powerful antioxidant. Therefore, it can improve a variety of                            health conditions.

  • Helps With Detoxification to Prevent or Diminish Kidney and Liver Damage

          NAC helps detoxify your body and can treat acetaminophen overdoses.

  • May Improve Psychiatric Disorders and Addictive Behavior

          By regulating glutamate levels in your brain, NAC may alleviate symptoms of multiple psychiatric disorders and reduce                              addictive behavior.

  • Helps Relieve Symptoms of Respiratory Conditions

          NAC’s antioxidant and expectorant capacity can improve lung function by decreasing inflammation as well as breaking up                          mucus.

  • Boosts Brain Health by Regulating Glutamate and Replenishing Glutathione

          By helping replenish the antioxidant glutathione and regulate glutamate, NAC has the potential to treat diseases like                                  Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

  • May Improve Fertility in Both Men and Women

          NAC may help improve fertility in men by reducing oxidative stress that damages or kills reproductive cells. It may also aid                        fertility in women with PCOS.

  • May Stabilize Blood Sugar By Decreasing Inflammation in Fat Cells

          By decreasing inflammation in fat tissue, NAC may reduce insulin resistance and improve blood sugar regulation, but                                  human-based research is lacking.

  • May Reduce Heart Disease Risk by Preventing Oxidative Damage

          NAC can reduce oxidative damage to your heart, which can — in turn — decrease your risk of heart disease.

  • Ability to Boost Glutathione Levels May Improve Immune Function

          NAC’s ability to boost glutathione levels may improve immune function in a variety of diseases.

People take NAC for many reasons:-*   
As a prescription drug, doctors use NAC to treat acetaminophen overdose. It may also help break up mucus in people with some lung diseases, like chronic bronchitis.  As a supplement, some people use NAC to try to protect the liver. There's evidence it can help prevent bladder or neurologic damage caused by some drugs. NAC might help prevent colon cancer in people with some types of colon polyps, but more research is needed to be sure. NAC does not seem to reduce the risk of lung cancer or head and neck cancer. ( webmd.com )  There's mixed evidence about whether NAC helps with other conditions*, like:- 

  • Infertility
  • The Flu
  • Cystic Fibrosis 
  • Liver Disease 
  • Angina 
  • HIV 
  • High Cholesterol 
  • Some Eye Conditions.

More research is needed.

For your body to make the amino acid cysteine, you need adequate amounts of Folate, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12.  Available By Adaptogen Research. These nutrients can be found in beans, lentils, spinach, bananas, salmon and tuna.  While most protein-rich foods, such as chicken, turkey, yogurt, cheese, eggs, sunflower seeds and legumes, contain cysteine, some people choose to supplement with NAC to increase their cysteine intake.


There are standard doses for prescription uses of NAC. These depend on the condition that is being treated. Ask your doctor for advice.
