How does it work?
Pure N-Acetyl Cysteine is one of the few antioxidants found to raise glutathione levels. Glutathione is an important antioxidant used in many different metabolic processes within the body. Maintaining adequate levels is important to maintaining the health of the respiratory, hepatic and immune systems. It is also important in supporting antioxidant protection of lipids and proteins and supporting the normal response to inflammation.1-7 Glutathione is not well absorbed by the body when taken orally, so it can be difficult to sustain adequate glutathione levels. Pure NAC has been shown to significantly increase glutathione levels. Pure NAC is also capable of reducing the viscosity of mucous and is also used to support respiratory and pulmonary health
An increasingly large number of people are suffering from the detrimental effects of environmental toxins and pollutants, as well as chronic respiratory conditions. In the United States alone, over 25 million people have asthma, and more than 16 million adults are diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). These respiratory issues, combined with the constant exposure to toxins from air, water, and food sources, pose significant health risks that can impact our quality of life.
Pure N-Acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a powerful supplement that can provide a solution to these prevalent health concerns. NAC aids in the production of glutathione, a critical antioxidant that helps to detoxify environmental toxins and pollutants, supporting liver function and overall health. Additionally, NAC’s mucolytic properties improve respiratory function by breaking down and thinning mucus, providing relief for those suffering from chronic respiratory conditions. By incorporating NAC into your daily supplement regimen, you can effectively combat these issues, protecting your body from harmful toxins and promoting healthier respiratory function. Whether you’re aiming to improve your lung health or seeking a powerful detoxification aid, Pure N-Acetyl cysteine is a valuable addition to your wellness routine.
What is Pure NAC? Pure N-Acetyl cysteine is an amino acid that boosts antioxidant function and is commonly used as an agent to help clear sinus and airway congestion caused by mucus overproduction. Pure NAC is a source of the conditionally essential amino acid L-cysteine and is a precursor to the tripeptide glutathione, an essential intracellular antioxidant, and therefore supports antioxidant and cellular detoxification pathways in the body. In addition, a growing body of research also highlights the role of Pure NAC in supporting neuropsychiatric health. Each capsule of Pure Pure N-Acetyl Cysteine provides 500 mg of this versatile amino acid.

Detox Support and Antioxidant Protection†
Though studies have shown the absorption of oral glutathione to be limited,8 supplementation with Pure NAC has been shown to significantly increase circulating levels of glutathione in the body.9,10 Increasing glutathione levels in turn increases the production of specialized antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione peroxidase, glutathione reductase and detoxification enzymes such as glutathione S-transferases. Through the activity of these enzymes, Pure NAC protects the body from oxidative damage, increases phase II detoxification, and enhances the normal breakdown of toxins and other metabolic byproducts of the body.
Studies show Pure NAC supports normal mucous production and may positively support pulmonary and respiratory function, especially when consumed over a prolonged period. [11,12] A clinical trial of 100 smokers found Pure NAC significantly improved measures of pulmonary health,13 and high-dose Pure NAC taken over a one year period resulted in significantly improved small airway clarity and decreased frequency of respiratory challenges.14 A systematic review found Pure NAC to be effective in supporting children’s pulmonary health as well.15 Pure NAC was also shown to support pulmonary health after inhalation of mustard gas.16
More recently, research has pointed to the role of Pure NAC in targeting a diverse array of factors related to the neuropsychiatric health. Pure NAC has been shown to protect neurons from oxidative damage, and to improve neurotransmitter production, mitochondrial function and inflammatory balance.17 Studies have also highlighted the role of Pure NAC in modulating oxidative stress as its mechanism of action in neuropsychiatric health.18 In one 12-week, doubleblind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of NAC in children with developmental delay, NAC resulted in significant improvements in irritability scores.19
