Cysteine is one of 20 amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins used throughout the body. Protein forms the structure of all of the body's cells and tissues, including muscle tissue, internal organs, tendons, hair, skin and nails. Acetyl L-Cysteine provides stability, increased bio availability as an altered form of the amino acid L-Cysteine and can therefore be used by the body more efficiently. It is the master producer (precursor) of Glutathione the powerful antioxidant found in every cell in the body which protects cells against oxidative stress like ageing. Supplements containing NAC have been shown to have many health benefits, especially lung, liver and perhaps unexpectedly compulsive brain behaviour's.
