Product Information Sheet (PDF)

Patient One NAC supplies 600 mg per capsule of the amino acid N-Acetyl-l-Cysteine, a precursor to glutathione, the body's most powerful antioxidant which is known for diverse clinical uses.

NAC is recognized as an effective means of increasing circulating levels of glutathione in the body. As such, NAC supports detoxification of environmental toxins and pollutants and protection from normal exposure to heavy metals. 

NAC supports respiratory and immune health by promoting normal mucus viscosity. It is commonly used as an agent to help clear sinus and airway congestion caused by mucus overproduction. Because of its sulfur content, NAC is able to disrupt disulfide bonds, thinning the mucus so that mucus, together with any trapped unwanted particles, can be more easily expelled from the lungs. 

A source of the amino acid l-cysteine, NAC offers support for overall cardiovascular wellness. NAC is believed to hinder homocysteine formation at plasma protein binding sites while encouraging efficient elimination of homocysteine via urinary excretion.
