The ideal antioxidant supplement for the modern age! Derived from a natural process of fermentation, Organika's active NAC can help provide optimum antioxidant protection from free radicals caused by enviromental pollution, cigarette smoke and alcohol.* NAC can also help to provide liver support because of its potent detoxifying effect, and can also provide respiratory and lung support because of its ability to reduce mucous.*
What is NAC
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a derivative of the amino acid L-cysteine and is a more stable form of this amino acid for supplementation. NAC is a precursor to the important antioxidant, glutathione. Glutathione works in the liver to change chemicals and metabolic byproducts into harmless substances for excretion from the body.
NAC is used by the liver and the lymphocytes to detoxify chemicals and other poisons.* It detoxifies heavy metals like mercury, cadmium and lead, and is also a potent detoxifier of alcohol, tobacco smoke, and environmental pollutants, all of which supress the immune system.*
It protects all cells of the body from damage due to aging, helps immune cells kill invading microbes (especially viruses) and stops cells from being harmed by radiation and chemotherapy.* Supplementation of NAC has been shown to improve the body’s glutathione levels.*
What is Glutathione?
Glutathione is a sulphur-based molecule made from three amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid. It is an important antioxidant in the liver’s detoxification pathways. Glutathione changes chemicals and metabolic byproducts into harmless substances for excretion from the body, by deactivating harmful free radicals.* Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage.* Glutathione is responsible for detoxifying many compounds, including those found in cigarette smoke, alcohol, aspirin and acetaminophen.* As an antioxidant in other parts of the body, glutathione protects red blood cells, helps immune cells kill invading microbes and stops cells from being harmed by radiation.*
