N acetylcysteine or NAC has been used since the mid 90’s for treating neurodegenerative conditions (nerve related health related problems). It has long been used for the treatment of cystic fibrosis and in upper respiratory combination drugs. It is also the antidote most commonly used for Tylenol overdose in the hospital.
N Acetylcysteine and What it Does
Many of the neurodegenerative conditions are now thought to be caused by toxic chemicals. Inside the body these chemicals become what are called "free radicals." Free in that they freely move around. Radical in that they do radical damage to the cells of your body.
Damage can be to the cell wall, structures inside the cell and to the individual parts of the internal structures. Since nerves are cells, they can damage nerve membranes and parts. This includes the brain since it is full of nerve cells.
Excess free radicals can result from exposure, the production of radical chemicals in the body or a lack of another internal soldier like chemicals called "antioxidants".” These soldier chemicals are like the special forces of the marines. They are the soldiers who neutralize free radical action.
The reason NAC works so well in preventing the damage that Tylenol causes in the liver is the same reason it works in neurodegenerative conditions> NAC is one of the most effective ways to help the body get the antioxidant army into each of the cells to fight off the scavenging free radicals.
Co-Factors: Helping NAC Work Better
Since our diets are deficient of many macro nutrients, to get the best benefit from NAC requires taking the co-factors that helps the NAC work even better.
Magnesium - 50-400 mg/ day (best not to take with NAC)
Selenium - 100-200 mcg/day (Each Brazil Nut has 100 mcg so eat 2 a day)
Vitamin E (D-Alpha tocopheryl) - 400-800 Units/day
Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) - 25-50 mg/day
Vitamin C (to prevent kidney stones)
There is something you might need to consider about acetylcysteine. What if there was a better way to boost your glutathione using acetylcysetine? What if it eliminated the need for finding, counting out and taking the appropriate amount of all of the above vitamins and minerals?
What if it was possible to get the appropriate amount of each in an acetylcysteine oral administration formulation that has been clinically proven to boost your glutathione to levels beyond what you could with the above mixture.
Well, there is something available. More to come on this.
Cant wait? Then feel free to contact me and I will tell you how you can get it.
One nutritionist recommends that a dose of about 500 mg to 1800 mg per day.
Literature suggested beginning with 500 - 600 mg to see how it works. Then add another capsule if needed. Do not take more than what is needed. Taking more than the amount recommended by the supplier could cause sever health problems.
Most research also indicates that it is essential to take 500 mg of Vitamin C to prevent kidney stones. Also take Lipoic Acid (as directed by the supplier). These will help prevent the glutathione that is produced from becoming oxidized and ineffective.
Additional benefits will come from taking the cofactors.
The most important of the cofactors is selenium. You can get the same amount of selenium as a supplement by eating 2 Brazil nuts a day. Each nut has 100 mcg of selenium and 200 mcg is recommended.
As more info becomes available on N acetylcysteine, we will publish it here.
Note: Numerous products have no published clinical trials demonstrating its N-acetylcysteine formulation and co-factor effectiveness. Some have claims but there is no hight level peer reviewed studies to substantiate their claims. Many times their scientific studies are flawed. It is not saying that their product is bad. Just buyer beware.Best wishes and good health to you.

What is Cysteine More on the Glutathione precursor.
Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.
Usually there is something more wrong that just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH
The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.
It is simple, easy and sustainable;e and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).
And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
