NAC – the Amino Acid That Could

As antioxidants go, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) may not take center stage (thanks, vitamin C), but it sure standsout from the crowd. Your body needs this free form amino acid to make glutathione, the body’s most abundant – and important – free radical fighter. NAC also increases the body’s antioxidant capacity and is often used to aid respiratory health.

All that, and more? NAC also shows great promise for mental health. In particular, new research supports NAC in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and addiction, from smoking and drug use to gambling. Natural Factors NAC offers an affordable, safe way to fight oxidative stress and promote mental health.
