What is N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC)?
N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) is the supplement form of the amino acid cysteine. This form of the amino acid is more stable with greater bioavailability. Your body can make cysteine from the essential amino acid methionine. Your body in turn makes this into glutathione, which is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help the body fight free radicles which can damage cell membranes and DNA. Cysteine is found in many high-protein foods including meats, cheeses and wheat germ. If you feel like you are not consuming enough of these foods, supplementation may be necessary.
