N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is a known precursor for glutathione (GSH). This study looked at the impact of NAC on GSH status for detoxification in older populations.
It's often an overlooked fact that paracetamol has a significant impact on glutathione in the body. So it's certainly something health professionals need to be considering.
With the emergence of antibiotic resistance, one goal of research scientists has been to understand through which medium bacteria communicate, and how we may inhibit this conversation.
The important antioxidant N-acetylcysteine is at the centre of an expanding field of research investigating its benefits in chronic and persistent infections.
As an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, detoxicant, mucolytic and neuromodulator, the clinical benefit of N-acetylcysteine is supported by a growing number of scientific interventions.
In 2014, Volkan Sayin and other Swedish researchers claimed that vitamin E and N-acetyl-cysteine supplements could increase lung cancer in smokers.
N-acetyl-cysteine, commonly abbreviated to NAC, is a precursor of the amino acid L-cysteine and the antioxidant glutathione (GSH).
In today’s podcast Andrew is joined by dietician Belinda Reynolds. Belinda has over 15 years experience in Integrative Medicine. She is a senior educator and lecturer for BioCeuticals, and has a true gift for pulling clinically relevant information from research.
Today she takes us through extemporaneous dispensing of N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC). Her expert clinical knowledge reveals just how broad the use of this compound is outside the conventional medical uses for paracetamol (acetaminophen) toxicity and respiratory disease.
