Clinically-backed NAC supplement! 

N-acetyl-l-cysteine (NAC) is a nutrient often utilized to enhance lung health. Its antioxidant properties help combat any potential oxidative damage caused by toxins and pollutants. This is important in maintaining healthy lung tissue as we often inhale airborne toxins from our surroundings, such as artificial fragrances, harmful chemicals, and air pollution.*

NAC is a precursor to the amino acid L-cysteine, a key nutrient in maintaining healthy lung tissue. Specifically, NAC is essential for our bodies to make and replenish our glutathione levels, one of the most critical antioxidants in our bodies. (In fact, glutathione is so important that it’s known as the “mother of antioxidants!”)


Why is it important to replenish our glutathione levels?

So, what makes glutathione so special? Glutathione helps fight against oxidative stress, which tries to damage tissues and cells in our bodies. It’s crucial to our overall immune function and assists our natural fight against infection. Aside from supporting our respiratory system, antioxidants like glutathione can ward off all kinds of ailments — from cognitive to cardiovascular!
