N-Acetyl Cysteine, 575 mg 100 capsules
- Promotes antioxidant activity*
- Respiratory aid*
- Supports the body’s detoxification process*
N-acetyl cysteine (or NAC) is a derivative of the amino acid cysteine. NAC acts as a precursor to glutathione, a potent antioxidant compound made in the body. Glutathione’s strong antioxidant properties help prevent damage caused by oxidative stress and free radicals. Proper stores of glutathione support the immune system and help to neutralize toxins, including heavy metals.*
Trace minerals selenium and molybdenum provide extra support to glutathione’s many amazing properties.*
Taking NAC may be more beneficial than taking oral glutathione, as glutathione doesn’t fare well during digestion and isn’t well absorbed. Taking a glutathione precursor like NAC, however, allows for the production of intercellular glutathione, and NAC is readily absorbed during digestion.*
NAC has also been helpful in reducing symptoms of respiratory disorders, including coughing, wheezing and phlegm. NAC is particularly good at thinning thick phlegm. NAC binds to the sulfur in mucus and deteriorates the structure, making it easier to expel the mucus out the airways.*
N-acetyl cysteine, selenium (from SelenoExcell high selenium yeast), molybdenum (from molybdenum citrate), gelatin (bovine) capsule

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the capsule size?
A: Capsule size 0.
Q; What type of capsule does this product come in?
A: This comes in a gelatin capsule. The gelatin is derived from bovine hide (beef skin).
Q: What is the difference between L-cysteine and N-acetyl cysteine?
A: L-cysteine can be made in the body or it can be derived from protein-rich foods. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) can only be obtained from supplement or pharmaceutical drug form. NAC can be broken down into L-cysteine once inside the body. While L-cysteine plays important roles in building vital proteins in the body, NAC is known for being a precursor to glutathione, the body's master antioxidant.
Q: Why does this product smell rancid?
A: NAC naturally contains sulfur, which has an unpleasant smell. The odor is harmless to you and does not affect the product in any way. To keep our products as pure as possible, we don't add any manufacturing agents to mask the smell.
Q: The capsules I received have colored specks in them. Is that normal?
A: Yes, the appearance is normal. Our NAC capsules also contain selenium and molybdenum. The selenium raw material that we use is tan in color and the molybdenum raw material that we use is white with light blue specks. Combining all three raw materials together gives an overall appearance of off-white with tan/brown and blue/grey specks scattered throughout the capsule. To keep our products as pure as possible, we do not add any agents that mask the true color of the raw materials we use.
