Description

  • N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine
  • 600 mg, 60 vegetarian capsules
  • Item Catalog Number: 01534

Researchers have long known that N-acetyl-L-cysteine, an antioxidant compound, supports bronchial and respiratory health. At the core of its power is its ability to support healthy cellular levels of glutathione. But now a wave of new research is showing powerful benefits on overall health. More than 30 placebo-controlled studies on cellular glutathione have shown that N-acetyl-L-cysteine can affect energy production, well-being, and quality of life. Today, N-acetyl-L-cysteine is prized as a highly bioavailable nutrient that supports your immune system, helps protect neurons during times of oxidative stress, and enhances liver function.

Benefits at a Glance:

  • Readily bioavailable with immediate effects inside the body
  • Supports production and regeneration of glutathione, an internal antioxidant
  • Proven effects on quality of life, immune function, and overall health
  • Supports healthy liver metabolism of lipids
  • Supplies nutritional support to neurons in times of oxidative stress

At the core of N-acetyl-L-cysteine's power to benefit overall health1 is its ability to support healthy cellular levels of glutathione,2-4 which is used by all cells for protection against free radical damage and insults from foreign compounds. It directly contributes to glutathione production and stimulates enzymes involved in maintaining healthy glutathione levels.

N-acetyl-L-cysteine is also a powerful nutrient in its own right, providing support for the immune system and liver.5-9 It is quickly and readily absorbed into the body and begins to provide direct cellular protection throughout the body.10-23

If you're looking for a highly bioavailable, powerful nutrient that benefits overall health and promotes glutathione production, add 600-1,800 mg N-acetyl-L-cysteine to your nutrient regimen today.
