People with auto-immune diseases and chronic diseases are always looking for that extra supplement that may help them get better.
N-acetyl-cysteine, often referred to as NAC is one of these supplements that can help.
Glutathione is the major antioxidant in our body. This means that its job is to go around and knock off all those free radicals that we are always hearing about. Now don't bother taking Glutathione itself. It is for sale but you will be wasting your money as it is not absorbed as a supplement by our body. It does a vanishing trick before it is of any use.
So what do we do? We take NAC. It can be manufactured by our body into Glutathione. Magic! Then the glutathione can zap around our body and gobble up those free radicals again.
It is very important to take NAC if you have a chronic disease such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia or Adrenal Fatigue. Also it has a great effect on auto immune diseases. When we are in a state of prolonged ill health we make lots of free radicals and it is not good to have too many of these floating around.
