Effects of N-Acetyl-L-cysteine:
N-acetylcysteine is an excellent source of sulfhydryl groups and is
converted in the body into metabolites capable of stimulating
glutathione synthesis, promoting detoxification, and acting
directly as a free radical scavenger.
Administration has historically been as a mucolytic [mucus
dissolving] agent in a variety of respiratory illnesses;
However, N-Acetyl-L-cysteine appears to also have beneficial
effects in conditions characterized by decreased glutathione or
oxidative stress, such as HIV infection, cancer, heart disease, and
