NOW Foods - NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine 600 mg. - 250 Vegetarian Capsules
A Precursor Pill to Stimulate the Body’s Production of AntioxidantsThe body has the ability to produce natural antioxidants in the form of glutathione. This antioxidant is formed within the liver. However, production of such antioxidant is influenced not only by age but also the overall health of an individual. This means that if an individual is already in his or her advanced stage and has compromised health, the body’s production of glutathione slows down to a trickle. While antioxidants can be sourced from food, it is still crucial to simulate the body’s ability to produce its own antioxidant. This is where the NOW Foods–NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine Capsules come in.
Pushes the Body to Produce Its Own AntioxidantN-Acetyl Cysteine is a type of stable-form amino acid L-Cysteine. This amino acid contains sulfur that serves as a stabilizer for the formation of protein structure. The formation of unnecessary protein structures is indicative of a tumor. Several studies suggest that N-Acetyl Cysteine can help prevent polyp formation and are beneficial to people who are at risk of developing colon problemsr. But most importantly, it is also used to protect the liver and to coax it to produce more glutathione – the body’s natural antioxidant.
Helps in The Body’s Detoxification ProcessThe high antioxidant properties of N-acetyl cysteine helps with the body’s natural detoxification processes. It helps prevent side effects of drugs as well as different types of environmental toxins. This is the reason why it may be given to people who suffer from drug overdose particularly acetaminophen. It may also benefit people who are suffering from diminished kidney and liver function due to its anti-inflammatory effects. It also does not present any severe side effects on people with compromised liver and kidney function.
May Help Improve Different Types of ConditionsScientific evidence suggests that N-acetyl cysteine may help improve different types of conditions and diseases. People who suffer from infertility, cystic fibrosis, flu, liver disease, angina, high cholesterol, and certain eye diseases may see improvement upon regular intake of this supplement. Optimal doses of N-acetyl cysteine has not yet been set yet anecdotal references noted that intake of one capsule twice daily can bring positive results to the body. For better results, it may also be taken in combination of alpha lipoic acid and other antioxidants.
N-Acetyl Cysteine and MoreEach serving of this supplement contains 600 milligrams of N-acetyl cysteine to push the body to start producing glutathione. Aside from glutathione, it also contains 50 micrograms of molybdenum and 25 micrograms of selenium. These are important trace elements that are necessary for the healthy physiological functions of the body. For instance, molybdenum is important in removing toxins from the metabolism of sulfur-containing compounds. Selenium helps the body manufacture special proteins and antioxidant enzymes thus they play role in preventing cellular damage.
