N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is a stable form of the amino acid L-Cysteine. Cysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that acts as a stabilizer for the formation of protein structures. Although NAC possesses its own antioxidant activity, its primary function is to supply cysteine necessary for glutathione synthesis.*
