Professor Michael Berk discusses the evolving research on mental health conditions with Dr. Adrian Lopresti, connecting inflammation & mental health & the benefits of nutraceuticals for the treatment of mental health conditions.
Could N-acetyl-cysteine help people recover from ice addiction - new research is exploring exactly that!
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.
