Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is a sulphur-containing free form amino acid, and comes from the amino acid L-cysteine. N-acetyl-cysteine, which is more stable than L-cysteine, is important for production of the free radical fighter, glutathione. NAC, an antioxidant, is used by the liver and lymphocytes to help detoxify the body. NAC also helps boost protective enzymes in the body. Each capsule contains 600 mg of N-acetyl-cysteine.

I suffer from fairly extreme Trichotillomania. I will spend hours trying to pull my beard hairs out, and I get painful/ugly sores and scabs on my face. I had been told for years that there was no cure, but a new doctor of mine prescribed the Sprouts NAC brand. I couldn't find it so I tried Twin Labs. This has honestly changed my life. I still pull hairs out sometimes, but it's maybe 10% of what it used to be. I used to have no hair on my lower lip and now I can grow a full beard.
Now, this probably would have worked with any brand, but Twin Labs doesn't smell and, since I have to take three-four of these a day, it's nice that it is really easy to swallow them (I take all of them at once.)
NAC is highly touted by a growing number of medical authorities. It is a precursor to glutathione. Glutathione is an antioxidant that is found within all cells. Because it is inside the cell, it's value is especially high. It also is a detoxifier that assists the liver in processing foreign substances, i.e. drugs. Some authorities contend it acts to regenerate cells and is effective in anti-aging.
So, one might ask, why not just take glutathione? That's a good idea if you're inclined to get supplements by intravenous infusion, but not very smart if you're taking it by mouth. The digestive systeem will handily destroy it.
When you open a bottle from other brands of NAC, you're apt to confronted with a strong odor. Not with Twinlabs. When I inquired about this with someone in the know, I learned that NAC by its nature has that powerful scent and that Twinlabs is (or was) the only brand that found a way to remove the smell.
I started taking this to help Detox my body--needless to say after the 3rd day, I could feel the effects of having more energy, this is my 3rd month of taking it, Wow, what a difference. I hope other people can also benefit from it.
