N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) Benefits
NAC is an antioxidant that helps reduce oxidative stress in the body. Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between the production of harmful molecules called free radicals and the body’s ability to neutralize them with antioxidants. NAC helps reduce oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals and boosting the body’s own antioxidant defenses.
It is a precursor to glutathione, a natural antioxidant produced by the body, and helps increase glutathione levels. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that is involved in many cellular processes, including detoxification and immune function. NAC helps increase glutathione levels by providing the body with the building blocks it needs to make more of this important antioxidant.
