N-Acetyl Cysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that maintains the proper functioning of the lungs and supports the immune system and liver function. A major consitutent of hair, it is a potent antioxidant and immune-system stimulant. The N-Acetyl form is superior to regular L-Cysteine and needs no supplemental Vitamin C.
N-Acetyl Cysteine is extremely effective in detoxifying the acetaldehydes found in cigarette smoke, alcohol, pollution, and Candida infection. It greatly enhances antioxidant glutathione production, much more than taking glutathione itself. This protects tissues (including the lens of the eye) from free radicals produced by pollution, UV radiation, and muscular exertion.
N-Acetyl Cysteine helps with respiratory problems by breaking up mucus. It also protects against damage to mitochrondrial DNA.
Recent studies have shown that using N-Acetyl Cysteine as part of a weight training program can prevent muscle loss while decreasing body fat. For optimal antioxidant protection, N-Acetyl Cysteine may be taken with glutathione and adequate selenium. (Conservative estimates recommend 800 mcg of selenium per day; experienced physicians find dosages as high as 2.5 mgs. per day to be safe and protective.)
Dosage: As a maintenance dose, take 2 capsules twice a day, morning and evening. In the case of an active infection or asthma attack, take 2 capsules every three hours for the duration of the illness.
