Excellent!I have had other brands that were more expensive than this brand so I was a bit skeptical of the quality, however, I have no complaints with the purpose for which I purchased this Life Extension N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) for. I have beginning stages of emphysema and COPD so when I get sick with a cold it always goes into my chest and I get bronchitis often times having to go to the doctor. I use this at the first sign of a cold, and can more often than not, can escape the bronchitis and the doctor. I have had one cold since purchasing this and it worked as hoped. This will be my go to brand for N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) as the price is good and the product works. Recommended!
I do not taste or smell this supplement. I think this one grain is a typical size. It is not too large and can be easily taken. This package comes in a plastic container. I have been taking this for about 5 months and have noticed a change in my facial skin. I have very dry skin and noticeable pores. I have always had very noticeable pores on my skin and my skin had no elasticity. Combined with the effect of being very careful with what I eat of course, my skin pores are very noticeable and I feel like there is a positive change in the cells in my body. This is a good benefit! I realize that it is a very good thing to take such a quality supplement as this is an ingredient that is not produced by the body. Of course I will continue to take it.
A friend recommended this to me and I was initially a bit skeptical. Bought it on sale and glad I made that decision. Improves my immunity especially when I feel like I'm about to catch a cold. Another thing I have noticed was that my skin condition is immensely improved. I feel like it reversed my age at least 5 years!
Well I am fan of Life Extension supplements, they are reliable and provide enough dosage of supplement. As I have read and search, NAC has impact on Lower Blood pressure and after learning it's the precursor to Glutathione which is the major of Antioxidants. Taking N-acetyl cysteine by mouth seems to reduce flu symptoms as well.
Great quality it’s one you can’t run out of after using! Detoxing effects hangovers barely exist while dosing 600-1200mg a day! Great immune system and raising natural glutathione levels!also use it with life extension super lipoic acid well being so many benefits! Specially heart health cardiovascular benefits 👌
NAC may reduce heart disease risk by reducing oxidative damage to tissues in your heart and help neutralize free radicals that can damage cells and tissues Antioxidants help support the body’s natural immune system and toxin-elimination processes The neurotransmitter glutamate is involved in a broad range of learning, behavior, and memory functions, while the antioxidant glutathione helps reduce brain cell oxidative damage associated with aging. The accepted daily supplement recommendation is 600–1,800 mg of NAC I take 1 to 2 per day with or without food
Bought this to enhance my glutathione level to achieve some detox and lightening effects. The capsule is white in color and the size is neither big nor small. I can swallow it with no issue. It does have a rather "bad" smell like rotten eggs ... initially it doesn't give that strong smell but after several days, the scent becomes more pungent. The taste is slightly bitter though. Do note that the label states that it is advisable to drink more water like 6 - 8 glasses of water if one were to take NAC supplement (see my attached pic).
I learned about NAC when I was going through recurrent miscarriages and how it can increase the chances of bringing home a healthy baby. I included it in the supplement regimine that ultimately helped me bring both my rainbow baby and pot of gold baby home. But there are so many health benefits of taking it in general, so I still take it! It's easy to swallow and has not caused me any bad side effects. It does have a bit of a sulfer smell to it, but that's a small price to pay for all the benefits of taking it!
I have never directly measured my glutathione levels so I cannot say for sure whether this NAC has been helpful or not in this regard. My oxidative stress markers continue to be low so it must be doing something! Life Extension has a good reputation for producing high-quality supplements and I have not experienced any negative side effects.
I read many great things about NAC. First off, it’s a precursor to glutathione which is a powerful antioxidant. It’s even given to patients who have overdosed on tylenol to protect the liver. But the star of it is it’s ability to work with GABA in the brain to help addicts overcome cravings right where they start: in the brain. I always keep a bottle on hand. I prefer to take a night on an empty stomach as night time is usually best for taking antioxidants.
Great addition to my supplement regime. This was recommended to me by my doctor, please also seek medical advice from a professional if you are looking for relief for something. If you are looking for a NAC supplement, this one did not give me any bad side effects and has been working well, and is easy to swallow.
