N-Acetyl Cysteine (60) [Circulatory, Glandular, Immune]
This combination is essential for the body to mount a defense against free radicals, and it supports the natural elimination of harmful toxins. This nutrient is a precursor to glutathione, one of the body's most powerful antioxidants.
Consequently, N-Acetyl Cysteine can step up the body's own efforts to combat oxidative stress and damage. N-Acetyl Cysteine protects healthy cells against damage from oxidative stressors.
Its principal benefits include protecting the liver, maintaining blood pressure levels already in the normal range and protecting the skin and eyes. NSP N-Acetyl Cysteine contains turmeric for added liver support.
Each capsule contains:
Each tablet provides 250 mg of N-Acetyl Cysteine and Turmeric.

N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a supplement form of cysteine, a semi-essential amino acid. NAC has many health benefits, including replenishing antioxidants and nourishing your brain.
NAC is also an FDA approved drug that is used to treat acetaminophen overdose and to loosen thick mucus in individuals with chronic lung disorders.
NAC is a supplement and a drug that has many potential benefits for your health. It can help boost your antioxidant levels, protect your liver and kidneys, support your mental health, balance your blood sugar, lower your heart disease risk, fight infections, enhance your fertility, ease respiratory problems, and improve your brain function.
The most important N-acetyl cysteine mechanisms of action are its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. These are due to its ability to increase glutathione levels, scavenge free radicals and reduce oxidative stress.
This is why it's recommended as a potential treatment for different disorders resulting from free oxygen radicals, such as liver disease, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and more.
NAC has the ability to reduce mucus secretions and phlegm, as well as to reduce coughing, wheezing and trouble breathing. This makes it helpful in treating conditions including chronic bronchitis (defined as the presence of chronic productive coughs for more than three months in two consecutive years), as well as colds and the flu.
In addition, there's evidence that it can be an adjunct treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (the fourth-leading cause of death in the U.S.) and emphysema.
Here are some of the top benefits of NAC according to Dr. Axe:
- N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), the supplement form of the amino acid cysteine, can help the body create and use protective antioxidants, especially glutathione (the so-called "master antioxidant").
- N-acetyl cysteine protects the liver and kidneys and improves detoxification pathways, in addition to having anti-inflammatory effects. This is why NAC injections are used to help reverse drug overdoses and toxicity.
- Other benefits include treating respiratory conditions, PCOS, infertility, metabolic syndrome and certain types of cancers.
- N-acetyl cysteine is not available in foods, but cysteine is. NAC is only obtained from taking supplements or prescription drugs.
A standard dose is between 600-1,800 milligrams per day, although higher doses around 2,000 milligram/day have also been shown to be safe.
