Cysteine is a remarkable health building sulfur containing
amino acid (building block of protein) which supports anabolic
activity (building up of the body). Cysteine helps the body
build new healthy cells to replace old unhealthy cells.
Cysteine also plays a role in proper liver functioning. It
is needed for the liver in order to produce the free radical
fighter glutathione and to help maintain it at adequate levels
in the cells.
N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) is a more stable form of cysteine and
has been shown to be more effective at boosting glutathione
levels than cysteine.
NAC is used by the liver and the lymphocytes
to detoxify chemicals and other poisons. It is a potent anti-oxidant
that protects the body against bacteria, viruses, chemicals
and radiation damage. It blocks the activity of harmful chemicals
in tobacco, alcohol, smoke and polluted air, all of which
are immune suppressants.
NAC can boost the levels of protective enzymes in the body,
thus slowing some of the cellular damage. It promotes healing
after surgery and severe burns, chelates heavy metals and
aids in iron absorption. It also plays an important role in
the activity of white blood cells which fight disease.
