N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) is a powerful anti-oxidant, can boost mood, lower anxiety, improve memory, and reduce compulsive behavior

N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC or N-acetylcysteine)*is the N-acetyl derivative of the naturally occurring amino acid*L-cysteine. And works primarily by helping restore the bodyís natural antioxidant*glutathione (γ-glutamylcysteinylglycine; GSH).

As the most abundant antioxidant in your body, GSH is responsible for maintaining oxidative balance in each of your cells.

Taking glutathione as a*nootropicsupplement does not adequately restore GSH levels in your brain because it canít cross the blood-brain barrier. This vastly underrated nootropic, NAC easily penetrates the*blood-brain barrier*and raises glutathione levels in your brain.[i]

NAC has been used to treat acetaminophen poisoning for decades.[ii]*Every year there are 56,000 ER visits from Tylenol overdose, resulting in at least 100 deaths.*[iii]*NAC provides the glutathione your liver needs to fight off the metabolite NAPQI in Tylenol that does severe liver damage.

As a nootropic, NAC helps prevent*glutamate*toxicity, boosts*dopamine, and reduces inflammation, oxidative and free radical damage.

N-Acetyl L-Cysteine helps:

Neuroprotection. NAC as a*precursor*of*glutathione, is a potent*antioxidant, anti-inflammatory*and*free radical scavenger.[iv]*Your brain is especially vulnerable to inflammation, free radical and oxidative damage. Affecting*cognition, long-term potentiation,*memory*and mood.Neurotransmitters. NAC modulates*glutamate*levels and*dopamine*release in the brain. Excess glutamate in your brain is toxic to brain cells affecting*neuron*health, cognition, memory and mood. And NAC protects dopamine*receptors. Influencing dopamine levels and function in your brain. Even protecting*dopaminergic*nerve terminals from chronic methamphetamine use.[v]Anxiety and depression. NAC reduces irritability, anxiety and depression. NAC increases your bodyís antioxidant capacity, and balances excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters in your brain. Resulting in less anxiety and depression.
