Glutathione precursor for antioxidant protection
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine 750 mg capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contain 750 mg pure N-acetyl- L-cysteine (NAC). NAC is a biologically active precursor for the amino acid cysteine which, in turn, is a precursor for glutathione, a tripeptide with antioxidant properties. Health Functions:
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine 750 mg tablets may be a useful nutritional supplement for individuals who wish to increase their intake of cysteine-derived antioxidants. To effectively increase both extracellular and intracellular glutathione levels, this product and glutathione may be taken concurrently.
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 factor to many degenerative diseases.Ingredients:
