NAC-600 - January's Supplement of the Month

Toxins are everywhere! They originate from chemical pollutants, heavy metals, pesticides, drugs, alcohol, active/passive cigarette smoking, and food additives.  However, toxins can also come from normal metabolism and intestinal build-up of unhealthy bacteria within your own body.  Over the course of a lifetime, we will be exposed to thousands of foreign compounds that can enter our bodies through the food we eat, the air we breathe, and directly through our skin. To make matters worse many of us eat a diet that significantly lacks nutritional value to fuel the body’s detoxifying capacity. All of these factors can contribute to an accumulation of toxins, or toxicity.

NAC, also known as N-Acetyl L-Cysteine, is a chemically altered version of the body’s non-essential amino acids, which works by detoxifying the body. It helps the body produce glutathione, another amino acid which acts as a detoxifying agent to most of the organs of the body. It removes environmental pollutants, like toxic heavy metals that interfere with proper functionality.  One of the most commonly known benefits of taking the amino acid in supplement form is for the detoxification of the liver and the efficient breakdown of mucus.

NAC has other numerous other benefits, as well. It has antioxidant and detoxification properties from the glutathione properties that help fight infections.  It improves the immune system function and decreases flu severity and symptoms.  NAC has also shown to help brain diseases like Parkinson’s and MS.

Ridding your body of toxins is very important. When the body fails to properly clear out toxins, symptoms of impaired detoxification occur. Some examples are: Digestive problems (such as Constipation, Gas and/or Bloating), Skin Rashes, Fatigue, Headaches and/or Migraines, Weight Gain, Cognitive Problems (Brain Fog, Memory Problems), Excessive Mucus, poor Body Odor or Bad Breath.
