NAC (N-acetyl-L-cysteine) is an amino acid that is naturally present in the human body. NAC acts as a precursor for glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that helps to rid the body of free radicals and support overall organ and tissue health. (Please note that our NAC is high-quality and therefore has a pungent, sulphury smell; this is a sign of quality and not a reason for concern.)
I don't know how they work I keep breaking out
It’s hard to say for sure that NAC was what fixed my PCOS acne. But I do know I took a break from it for a few months, got bad acne again, went back on it, and the acne stopped. There could be other factors involved, but it seems like it does something!
Sharing this review in hopes that it may help someone else on their long C*V*D recovery. Earlier this year I got sick and while I had a “mild” case, I still developed pneumonia afterwards along with a sleuth of strange and new symptoms I had never experienced before. These included disregulated blood pressure, vertigo, asthma-like breathing, rash flare ups, headaches, along with muscle aches and pains. I’m a 28 year old with zero health conditions or diseases, so you can imagine that this took a toll on me mentally. I was really discouraged that someone like me could get so sick despite being healthy and having a super mild and easy case (the aftermath wrecked me, though). I researched natural supplements that could help in my healing journey and came across NAC. Since taking these supplements, nearly all my symptoms have disappeared. I struggled for 4 months and by taking NAC, most of my symptoms have gone away in about 1-2 months. I haven’t gotten sick again since, but I’ve read compelling research that this may help prevent as well as treat positive cases. Now, I know that this is typically recommended for fertility (not what I was looking for) but a pleasant side effect of taking this has been that my periods are now regular like clockwork, which isn’t typically the case for me. I’m not educated enough to comment on the hormonal effects, but I find that my mood is better and overall mental health feels better (no fatigue, brain fog, etc). Besides healthier eating, I haven’t changed anything else in my routine which makes me believe that this played a big role in my healing. I usually take these on an empty stomach, but would recommend those with a sensitive constitution to take these with a meal since I've had this issue before. I hope this helps someone else!
I’m sure the quality is fine, but this made my stomach hurt bad every time I took it. Only made it through a handful of pills.
Started taking these in conjunction with wholesome story’s inositol back in 2020 for PCOS it helped a lot with weight management, skin, and beyond. I experienced slight light headedness with certain movements but very bearable.
Reordered in 2021, and my side effects are intense: chest pain, dizziness, lightheaded, and drowsy.
So bummed as I swore by these.
