N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC)

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC)

Contains the amino acid cysteine, a precursor to glutathione (GSH) and thioredoxin (TRX), the critical antioxidant systems which mop up toxins and drive detoxification in the body.

Paragon’s clinical metabolic research shows how the stress of modern life is causing the accelerated depletion of most nutrients involved in detoxification that support the metabolism and recycling of all-important glutathione. These include vitamins (B5, B3, B2, B6, B12 and methyl folate), minerals (potassium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and copper), and amino acids (cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid). Therefore, cysteine must be ingested in balance with other nutrients involved in detoxification. Each Paragon subscription provides a unique balance of all the above nutrients based on each unique clinical assessment of test results and questionnaire data.

As glutathione is comprised of the amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamic acid, Paragon’s clinical metabolic testing shows that when in balance with glycine and glutamic acid, NAC and cysteine have the ability to maintain healthy liver tissue, healthy lung tissue and function, the body's natural defenses and enhanced cellular health and longevity. These qualities make NAC especially beneficial for active people, the elderly, those with a past history of liver problems, pneumonia and lung problems, alcohol problems, heavy consumption of Tylenol or other acetaminophen products, and those exposed to polluted environments.  

Cysteine is also the primary amino acid forming hair, and a major component of nails and skin.  For this reason, excess depletion of cysteine due to chronic toxins, alcohol, stress and/or poor diet leads to damage which can be improved by ingesting additional NAC, sulfur-rich foods, and the other nutrients listed above.
