Learn all About Remedy's Nutrition® N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) with Liver Safeguard™ 

Acetylcysteine is also known as N-Acetyl Cystine or NAC for short; NAC is included in the World Health Organization List of Essential Medicines.  NAC promotes higher Glutathione levels in the body.  Glutathione is deemed to be an important antioxidant that prevents cellular damage. In the medical field, NAC is used to treat acetaminophen overdose and to thin thick mucus caused by cystic fibrosis or COPD. 

Mechanism of Action of N-Acetyl Cysteine

NAC is considered a 'pro-drug' to L-cysteine.   A 'pro-drug' is a compound that converts in the body into a pharmacologically active 'drug'.  The body needs L-cysteine to produce glutathione, thus, NAC supplementation raises glutathione stores in the body.
