A potent antioxidant that supports liver detoxification and thins the mucus for improved respiration

NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) is a potent amino acid that increases glutathione levels (for liver detoxification). In addition to supporting respiratory health‚ it also has kidney-protective effects.


N-acetylcysteine (NAC)‚ a sulfur-containing amino acid‚ is the precursor to the amino acid L-cysteine‚ one of the three amino acids that comprise glutathione. Animal and human studies of NAC have concluded it has potent antioxidant activity. In addition to its antioxidant activity‚ NAC is effective in promoting normal liver detoxification and protecting the liver and the kidneys from toxic insults. As a sulfur source‚ NAC stimulates the synthesis and activity of glutathione‚ an important antioxidant in its own right. Research suggests NAC is capable of enhancing immune function. NAC also helps maintain good pulmonary health due to its mucolytic activity.

In a double-blind‚ placebo-controlled trial‚ NAC positively impacted lymphocyte cell numbers‚ white cells that are crucial to normal immune function.

The sulfur in NAC is able to cleave the bonds in mucoproteins‚ which results in mucus being broken into smaller‚ less viscous pieces. Hence‚ NAC's ability to decrease the viscoelasticity of nasal mucus and increase the clearance of mucus by the cilia by thinning secretions helps maintain good pulmonary health.

      My doctor recommended CystePlus by Thorne Research to me as part of my regiment for maintaining good liver function during my lengthy detox process due to Chronic Lyme Disease and Leaky Gut. Based on my periodic lab results, the product is helping to maintain healthy liver functioning. I will continue using this product indefinitely or until my doctor states otherwise.

      Pros

      Easy to swallow capsules. No yucky flavor.

      Cons

      I would recommend this item to a friend.

      I had dairy induced phlegm and used CystePlus by Thorne Research to help with the congestion. Now that I am off dairy I use this during allergy season or if I am reaction to something that had dairy in it. CystePlus really works. My spouse uses it for allergy season.

      I dont take CystePlus everyday because there is some controversial information about taking NAC daily. So I plan to take CystePlus when I am feeling run down for that extra boost to my immune system.
