What is N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)?
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) by HSN Raw is a nutritional supplement based on N-acetyl cysteine powder.
It is an acetylated form of the amino acid cysteine with excellent qualities as an antioxidant because it possesses a thiol group (-SH).
This is a highly recommended way of adding the cysteine amino acid to our diet, since it is very stable, it is easily assimilated by our body and it helps to fight oxidative stress.
Firstly, N-acetyl cysteine is converted to cysteine and then, along with the amino acids, glycine and L-glutamic acid, it increases glutathione levels.
It has the ability to cross the cell membrane and perform its function within the cell and maintain elevated levels of intracellular GSH, reducing active forms of oxygen (ROS) and oxidative stress.
What are the properties of N-Acetyl Cysteine?
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is one of the best cellular antioxidants and detoxifiers as it neutralizes free radicals and helps the body to get rid of toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury and cadmium.
It is highly recommended for sportspeople, since several studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in mitigating muscle fatigue thanks to its antioxidant effect and its qualities that encourage a beneficial cellular climate in the body for a correct muscle recovery.
It also helps to mitigate muscle inflammation and can be a positive support for joint health. N-acetyl cysteine helps to stabilize the structure of proteins and it is involved in the synthesis of collagen, favoring this way healthy joints, skin, hair and nails.
NAC is also an excellent antimucolytic agent and can usually be found in many medicines formulas to cure colds. It has the capacity to reduce the viscosity of the mucus so it is more fluid and can be eliminated more easily.
The NAC also promotes expectoration and it protects the respiratory system.
Another curious fact about NAC is that it helps protect immune cells and helps fight certain bacteria and viruses.
Who can benefit from N-acetyl Cysteine?
- People looking to promote their antioxidant capacity to help avoid oxidative damage.
- Especially advised for sportspeople, subjected to high oxidative damage generated by physical activity.
- People looking to promote the detoxifying function of their body by helping to eliminate toxins.
This is an essential antioxidant for athletes, it has improved my performance and decreased fatigue after the workout. The neutral flavour is ok, could be better though
Good product overall

This is a very basic supplement that should be included in everyone’s supplementation. The product has a pharmaceutical grade quality, although the scoop should be tinier in order to measure the amount properly
An excellent Glutathione amplifier that detoxifies and protects the body from oxidative damage. I use it on an empty stomach in the morning and before the workout
