An amino acid, NAC has been shown in clinical studies to be an excellent supplement to recharge cellular glutathione and to support the body’s natural detoxification process.
- Supports restoration of glutathione levels after depletion
- May help the body break down biofilm from chronic infection
- Supports recovery after intense athletic exercise
- May reduce oxidative stress levels and protect against free radicals
Glutathione Restore was designed to boost the body’s natural antioxidant function. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can lead to the production of free radicals. These highly reactive molecules can easily react with proteins, lipids, or even DNA within the cells of the body, leading to a variety of disorders and diseases. Accumulation of this damage over time is thought to be the main driver of the ageing process, as cells gradually begin to lose function. To balance this harmful effect, the body produces numerous compounds, known as antioxidants, which mop up the harmful free radicals and remove them from the body.
None of these antioxidants are more important than glutathione, which has been called the “mother of all antioxidants.” Glutathione is a simple peptide comprised of three amino acids, L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid and glycine. Glutathione can readily reduce oxidative free radicals, preventing their damaging effects and allowing them to be safely removed from the body. However, study after study has shown that oral glutathione supplements are poorly absorbed. N-acetyl-L-cystine is a valuable precursor of glutathione. In the body, the formation of glutathione is typically limited by the availability of cysteine, hence why N-acetyl-cysteine is so valuable, it works to restore glutathione levels. In cases where glutathione has been depleted, such as after a night of drinking, NSAID use, a heavy workout, or with chronic oxidative stress, N-acteyl-cysteine has been proven effective at restoring levels of the essential detoxifying agent, glutathione.
