NAC 600MG

N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is a sulfur-containing precursor of the amino acid L-cysteine and the antioxidant glutathione.

As an antioxidant itself, and a precursor to the most important antioxidant in the body, Glutathione, NAC protects cells from damage caused by the excessive oxidative stress that results from inflammatory states, chronic disease, prolonged strenuous exercise, pollution exposure and generalized stress.

NAC 600MG

It is well documented, NAC minimizes liver damage caused by the overuse of certain pharmaceutical drugs (i.e. Acetaminophen) and the acute exposures to environmental chemicals.  NAC does all this with the help of Selenomethionine, by way of replenishing the body’s own antioxidant, glutathione, via the glutathione redox system. 


NAC also has the ability to reduce the viscosity of mucus, and stimulates the clearing of mucus from the airways. This makes NAC a valuable component of any respiratory symptom-management program where congestion occurs.


At the same time, NAC protects the lungs from the damaging effects of inhaled pollutants.
NAC supports heart health in a myriad of ways, with the capacity to support healthier homocysteine and Lipoprotein A levels, two biomarkers associated with cardiovascular disease when they are elevated.


PLV NAC provides 600 milligrams of N-acetyl-cysteine per capsule.

Conditions that may benefit from NAC supplementation include:
Asthma
Chronic bronchitis
Cystic fibrosis
Emphysema
Exposure to pollutants
Endurance sport
Fatty Liver Disease
Heart Disease
