N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine, or N-A-C, is an acetylated form of the amino acid cysteine. Cysteine is the most important precursor to glutathione (GSH), the most critical antioxidant produced in the body. Glutathione helps chelate toxins and heavy metals from the body. N-A-C is approved as a drug in some European jurisdictions for use in preventing liver damage from acetaminophen overdose. It has been used for over 30 years for respiratory health, providing some relief to those suffering from chronic respiratory conditions such as the annoying post-nasal drip, sinusitis, chronic bronchitis, the congenital disease cystic fibrosis, and even life-threatening conditions such as COPD. N-A-C also promotes cardiovascular health due to its unique ability to inhibit levels of a specific lipoprotein called Lp(a), a marker of heart disease.
Acetylated cysteine is better absorbed than regular cysteine. AOR’s N-A-C is an excellent choice for those looking for a single supplement to promote overall health including cellular protection and cardiovascular health. People suffering from chronic respiratory conditions may also benefit from regular use of N-A-C.
As the precursor for the important antioxidant glutathione, AOR’s NAC provides a wide range of health benefits in an effective dosage.
AOR™ guarantees that all ingredients have been declared on the label. Contains no wheat, gluten, nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, sulphites, mustard, soy, dairy, eggs, fish or shellfish.
Consult a health care practitioner prior to use if you suffer from cystinuria or cystine kidney stones, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, for use beyond six months or if symptoms persist or worsen. Do not use with charcoal, if you are taking antibiotics or nitroglycerin.

AOR is a great brand and this is an excellent NAC with no fillers. Excellent for people on statins along with CoQ10
My naturopath recommended I take N.A.C. and he recommended the AOR Brand. I really notice a difference if I don't take it. I've never tried any other brand because "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
I really like AOR products. Have bought this and it works well. Would recommend.
I was having terrible issues with sinus infections earlier on in the year, every time I thought I was getting better sure enough I was sick again. Since I am "anti" antibiotics I decided to give this product a try after doing plenty of research. Wow this has given me my energy and life back, sleep great as well. I did start with the AOR R + NAC SR 90 Vegetarian Capsules, a little more expensive but sure did help me, I was taking 4 a day until I regained my health, now only 1 at night. Now I am taking this one just once a day, but do include Alpha Lipoic Acid as well when you take this one since it is not included with it.
This is a must have supplement for anyone looking for a superior NAC -- easy to take and reasonably priced
This product is very supportive in loosening mucus for bronchial condition.
Our naturopath recommended this for my husband to help strengthen his system for the upcoming cold and flu season.
this product works very well
N.A.C. might be among the most important supplement you could take:
N.A.C. (N-acetyl cysteine) may be able to reduce a large range of chronic, degenerative problems, including liver inflammation and impaired glucose control.
N.A.C. does not require a prescription and is taken as an oral supplement in doses of 600 to1800 mg daily. N.A.C is taken one to three times per daily, or as recommended by your healthcare provider. N.A.C. can be taken with or without food.
N.A.C. is given intravenously. in hospital emergency departments as a life saving treatment for acute poisoning with paracetamol (also known as acetaminophen also known as Tylenol).
It has definitely made a difference in my health.
I've only started using it so time will tell.
I take NAC for general good health and well being. Healthy Planet has it at a great price and you only need to take one a day for general well being! Very good for the liver!
Wonderful product! Helps to support liver and detoxing the body!
I have been using this product for over a decade to control thick mucus. As long as I keep taking it twice a day, every day, it is very effective. Love AOR products, high quality with few or no additives.
N-A-C is also used to support/help with excess mucus in lungs, as well as a potent liver protectant. I have been using this product for years, and can attest to the fact that it is a quality product that works very well. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone with COPD, or bronchial problems.
My husband is prone to bronchitis with environmental alergies. It has strengthened his lungs
I find AOR brand to be of high quality and effective.
My naturopath recommended this product and it works great so far. The price is really good too!
I started using this product in 2012 and it definitely does what it is supposed to do !I
It was recommended by my health practitioner and my health improved a lot.
The first time I tried this, I felt smarter and felt toxins or something coming down the back of my neck. Not sure if it is mercury or copper or excitotoxins that came down, but every little bit helps when you are trying to beat chronic illness.
AOR is a reputable brand that even naturopaths recommend. Good products at great prices.
