THE AMAZING BENEFITS OF N-A-C
Over the past 12 years, I have consistently recommended an underestimated and under-utilized natural food supplement called N-A-C (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) to my patients. Even naturopaths rarely suggest it, and the majority of individuals who take natural supplements are unaware of its existence. However, in certain instances, this supplement can be the differentiating factor between life and death.
N-A-C, a derivative of the essential amino acid cysteine, plays a vital role in the production of glutathione (GSH), one of the body’s most crucial antioxidants. Its ability to elevate GSH levels in the bloodstream is responsible for all the benefits associated with N-A-C. This supplement profoundly impacts the immune system, safeguards the liver, facilitates detoxification, and promotes cardiovascular health. Therefore, we all require its anti-inflammatory protection.
N-A-C actively modulates the expression of genes that influence the inflammatory process. By inhibiting the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines, suppressing NF-kappa B, and regulating the COX-2 gene, it effectively prevents inflammation and alleviates pain. These chemical components play a significant role in numerous inflammatory conditions and diseases. In other words, N-A-C possesses anti-inflammatory properties and can effectively attenuate or reverse chronic inflammatory conditions.
N-A-C prevents LDL-cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol) from being oxidised and causing inflammatory damage to the blood vessels. N-A-C lowers the levels of homocysteine, which in turn prevents a build-up of plaque in the arteries. The lower the homocysteine levels, the less likelihood of arterial blockage.
N-A-C is also the most effective natural remedy that lowers the blood levels of lipoprotein a (Lp(a)), thought by many scientists to be a more accurate predictor of cardiovascular disease than blood levels of cholesterol. Diet changes and drugs do not lower Lp(a) anywhere near as well as N-A-C.
N-A-C also improves insulin resistance and thereby helps improve metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and hypoglycaemia.
Since GSH has been documented to help numerous neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, MS, Alzheimer’s, hearing damage, ataxia and ALS, it stands to reason that N-A-C would be helpful because supplementation of it raises the blood levels of GSH.
Immune System Benefits
N-A-C effectively boosts the body’s levels of GSH, enabling it to combat various viruses, including the influenza virus and HIV, the AIDS virus. GSH plays a crucial role in optimizing the function of T and B-lymphocytes. As a result, N-A-C acts as a natural defense against the AIDS virus and potentially countless other viruses.
Supplementing the body with GSH might seem like a logical choice, but a significant obstacle arises: GSH is unable to be absorbed intact through the gastrointestinal tract. Oral GSH supplementation is rendered inactive and destroyed by stomach acid. However, N-A-C does not face this problem.
The supplementation of N-A-C proves to be more effective than GSH supplementation. This is due to the body’s enhanced ability to produce significantly higher amounts of GSH from N-A-C compared to oral supplementation of GSH in any form.
In addition to its anti-viral properties, N-A-C safeguards the body against a plethora of pollutants, drugs, microbes, and toxic heavy metals such as mercury. N-A-C also possesses mucolytic properties, effectively breaking down dense and sticky mucus that accumulates in conditions like sinusitis, asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, and cystic fibrosis. Consequently, N-A-C becomes an indispensable component in the treatment of any condition involving excessive mucus buildup.
Evidence exists that N-A-C blocks the progression of most cancers and could be taken with chemotherapy to improve treatment outcomes.
N-A-C protects the body from many different toxins because of its content of sulfhydryl groups that can bind and inactivate herbicides, mercury, cadmium, lead, other toxic heavy metals, drugs like acetaminophen, environmental pollutants, microbes like E. Coli, carbon tertrachloride and aflatoxin. Although not a drug, N-A-C has government approval as a drug to prevent liver damage from acetaminophen (Tylenol) poisoning.
A very common condition that plagues millions in UK is known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). With this condition, the liver stores excessive amounts of fat mostly due to insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, or diabetes. Liver function tests are usually elevated, indicating damage to liver cells and the liver appears grossly fatty on an ultrasound. This condition benefits from strict restriction of simple carbohydrates as well as a vigorous exercise program. Studies also show a significant improvement in liver function tests in those suffering from NAFLD with supplementation of N-A-C. Not only does it protect liver cells, but it also helps heal a damaged liver.
Respiratory Tract Benefits
Due to N-A-C’s mucous-dissolving properties, just about any lung or bronchial problem can benefit from high levels of supplementation. Whether you have chronic bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, asthma, sinusitis or pneumonia, N-A-C helps reduce the viscosity of mucous so that the body can more easily cough it up. A number of studies also conclude that N-A-C prevents influenza, possibly through this mucolytic mechanism.
In addition, N-A-C reduces both the frequency and duration of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) attacks and may blunt the ravaging clinical course of pulmonary fibrosis, a usually lethal lung disease.
In my practice I have had a great deal of success using an N-A-C nasal spray to treat chronic sinus pain and congestion. Combining the spray with high dose oral N-A-C and vitamin C is often more effective than prescription antibiotics for alleviating chronic or recurrent sinusitis.
Stomach, Intestinal, Kidney Benefits
The bacteria known as H.Pylori has been acknowledged as a cause of ulcers, gastritis, reflux disorder discomforts, and even different types of gastrointestinal cancer. In fact, it’s the second leading known cause of all cancers. N-A-C supplementation is capable of inactivating H.Pylori and is something worth adding to any protocol geared to treating antibiotic-resistant H.Pylori infections.
Kidney disease is greatly helped by N-A-C supplementation. Even dialysis patients can benefit from as little as 600 mg N-A-C daily to reduce inflammation occurring in chronic kidney disease.
Psychiatric and Addiction Benefits
Trichotillomania is a bizarre obsessive-compulsive disorder in which victims pull out their hair for inexplicable reasons, causing noticeable hair loss. The usual treatment is anti-depressant drugs or major tranquillisers. Studies indicate that N-A-C significantly reduces the compulsive hair pulling.
Schizophrenia, autism, bipolar illness and other obsessive-compulsive disorders are also improved with N-A-C.
In addition, studies indicate that N-A-C diminishes the craving for highly addictive drugs like cocaine, nicotine and marijuana. As such, it may be a useful adjunct in any drug detoxification program.
Athletic and Anti-Aging Benefits
Due to its antioxidant effects and benefits to the respiratory system, N-A-C improves athletic performance. Specifically, N-A-C reduces muscle fatigue, and as proven in double blind studies, it enhances athletic endurance.
Furthermore, if you can effectively scavenge harmful free radicals, it stands to reason that you can prevent premature ageing. This phenomenon has indeed been proven in numerous scientific studies of N-A-C.
There are no accepted ideal dosages for N-A-C. My advice is to start at 600 mg daily and gradually build up to a maximum of 3000 mg daily. Ideally, take with an equivalent amount of vitamin C for maximum free radical scavenging effects.
