N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine

DESCRIPTION
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine vegetarian capsules provided by Blood DetectiveTM Nutritionals, contain 500 mg pure N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine is a major biologically active precursor from the amino acid cysteine that, in turn, is a precursor for glutathione, a tripeptide with antioxidant properties.

FUNCTIONS
Body cells and tissues are threatened continuously by damage caused by toxic free radicals and reactive oxygen species (e.g., peroxides) which are produced during normal oxygen metabolism, by other chemical reactions, and by toxic agents in the environment. Free radicals, once formed, are capable of disrupting
metabolic activity and cell structure. When this occurs, additional free radicals are produced which, in turn, can result in more extensive damage to cells and tissues. The uncontrolled production of free radicals is thought to be a major contributing actor to many degenerative diseases.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine is a precursor for the sulfur amino acid cysteine, and cysteine is used by the body to synthesize glutathione. Glutathione is a naturally occurring tripeptide which is a major component of two anti-free radical enzymes - glutathione peroxidase and glutathione reductase. As such, glutathione offers one
mechanism for scavenging toxic free radicals and inhibiting peroxidation thereby slowing down free-radical catalyzed chain reactions. Glutathione is well absorbed in the intestine, and enters the blood and other extracellular compartments where it exerts much of its benefi cial antioxidant effects. However, it can not effectively enter the cell.
In contrast to glutathione, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine is effi ciently transported into the cell where it is readily converted to cysteine for glutathione synthesis. Thus, supplementation with N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine can raise intracellular glutathione levels faster than glutathione.
Providing supplemental cysteine to elevate intracellular glutathione levels is generally not advised due to cysteine’s inherent toxicity. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine is virtually non-toxic and well absorbed, which is why supplementation with NAcetyl- L-Cysteine is recognized as a safe, highly effective method of increasing
intracellular glutathione stores.
Aside from providing cysteine as a glutathione precursor, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine also appears to have antioxidant properties as such, and is a valuable sulfur donor for various metabolic needs.
Importantly, a large number of studies have demonstrated that N-Acetyl-Cysteine is an effective mucolytic agent (thins and clears excessive mucous from the body), is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and is a biologically nescessary detoxifi er reducing body stores of mercury, excessive zinc and iron, arsenic and other elements.
The protective effects of N-Acetyl-Cysteine upon the nervous cardiovascular, enterohepatic (intestine-liver), hormonal and other body systems have been extensively studied.
