NAC supplies N-acetyl-L-cysteine, a derivative of L-Cysteine, which is morestable and better absorbed than L-Cysteine. NAC functions as a potentantioxidant. As the precursor to glutathione intracellular synthesis, it isessential for the synthesis of glutathione. Glutathione is a critical componentof the immune system, as it is an important intracellular water-solubleantioxidant. As part of this function, glutathione plays a vital role as thecofactor for the antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and glutathionetransferase. Glutathione is also important to the liver, as the liver utilizesit for drug detoxification. As a metabolite of cysteine, NAC plays an importantrole in detoxification, and is hepatoprotective. NAC functions in protectingcells against oxidative stress, and contributes to important bodily reactions.As such it is a part of the defensive mechanism toward potential carcinogens,as well as against DNA damage.
