May 2021 Update on this post about NAC. Amazon and some other suppliers are removing NAC and products containing it from there sites. Read the updated article here. There will be legal challenges as it appears that the FDA is on shaky ground on this one. My supplier has been inundated with orders so NAC is TOS but more is in production and it should be available in June. Call the FDA and let them know you want easy access to this very safe nutritional supplement.
Original post. N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) has been recommended by nutritionists for decades as a very safe amino acid nutritional supplement that is a precursor for glutathione production in the body. (Glutathione is a major de-toxifier.) The FDA is hinting that it may review this supplement’s classification and, therefore, possibly make it difficult to purchase. Please give the FDA a call at 888-463-6332 and ask that the classification not be changed. NAC has many other important functions in humans–take a look at this Mercola.com article to learn more about FDA’s actions and the benefits of NAC.
