Protects Against Oxidative Stress
NAC is the precursor or key ingredient in glutathione, a powerful antioxidant that helps to scavenge free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), which cause damage to cells and tissues throughout the body. NAC can help to keep our bodies functioning well by protecting our organs at a cellular level from stress and damage.
Helps Maintain Insulin Sensitivity:
NAC has insulin -sensitizing properties which help maintain healthy insulin and blood glucose levels. Insulin resistance is linked to many chronic diseases, so maintaining healthy insulin sensitivity and blood glucose levels is very important for our health.
Because of its potent antioxidant and insulin-sensitizing effects, NAC can help support endothelial health, ovulation, menstrual cycles, and overall reproductive health.
Take 1 capsule, 1-2 times daily, between meals, or as directed by a physician.
Do not exceed recommended dose. Pregnant and nursing mothers, children under the age of 18, and individuals with a known medical condition or taking prescription medication should consult a physician before taking this or any dietary supplement.
