What are the properties of NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine)?
The main property of NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine) is to help elevate glutathione levels. Glutathione has a number of characteristics to mitigate the harmful action exerted by free radicals on the cells that make up the tissues of our body.
Oxidative stress caused by free radicals can contribute to the premature aging of cells. Free radicals negatively affect the metabolism of lipids, proteins and DNA, thus triggering a series of human diseases, as well as premature aging, which is reflected in the appearance of blemishes on the skin, and a general deterioration of the complexion.
These substances are generated as a result of reactions that take place inside us, and they may also originate from the interaction with external agents, such as excessive exposure to the sun, environments with a high concentration of toxins, smoking, or even some food. High intensity physical exercise also promotes the generation of free radicals.
Among the benefits offered by NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine) is its hepatoprotective capacity, and the detoxifying action on the organism, against heavy metals such as mercury, lead or cadmium.
