NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine Indications
For treatment and cure of fungus infections and yeast infections, especially systemic, chronic, or recurrent fungus infection and yeast infection caused by Candida albicans intestinal yeast overgrowth (Candidiasis). For treatments addressing the symptoms of Candida albicans intestinal yeast infection. In men and women for addressing underlying causes of fungus and yeast-related disorders including oral yeast infection (thrush), vaginal yeast infection (vaginitis) and male yeast infection (jock itch). For treatment and supportive therapy of intestinal disorders commonly associated with Candida albicans yeast overgrowth (Candidiasis) including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), leaky gut syndrome, intestinal parasite infections, and intestinal bacterial infections.
NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine Source & Availability
NAC is a natural amino acid dietary supplement commonly available in pill, tablet, or capsule form. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid that is important as an antioxidant. NAC is a precursor in the body to the critical antioxidant glutathione, which is produced intracellularly, particularly by the liver.
NAC N-Acetyl Cysteine Medicinal Value
NAC has been demonstrated in medical and scientific tests to neutralize Gliatoxin which is produced by Candida albicans. Gliatoxin is extremely potent and causes extensive damage to the immune system by killing various kinds of while blood cells. NAC neutralizes these toxins, making you feel better, and improving your immune system so it can help fight the yeast infection.
NAC enhances immunity via its role in intracellular glutathione (GSH) production. This role becomes clinical when normal GSH production pathways are impaired, as for example, by HIV or Candida infections. Intracellular GSH has a powerful influence on how well T- and B-lymphocyte cells function and the production of phagocytes (macrophages, monocytes and neutrophils).
NAC Detoxification & Chelator. N-Acetyl Cysteine protect against toxins including herbicides, environmental pollutants such as carbon tetrachloride, heavy metals, microorganisms including E. coli and against toxins such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, gliatoxin and aflatoxin that are produced by fungus and yeast.
NAC Respiratory effects. NAC has been used for over 30 years as a mucolytic in persons having bronchopulmonary diseases including chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, asthma, sinusitis, and pneumonia. NAC helps reduce the viscosity of mucus so that it may be more easily coughed up.
NAC is also important in counteracting heart disease by lowering cholesterol and, importantly, by reducing plasma homocysteine levels -- a primary indicator of potential heart attacks.
