Amazon has removed any trace of NAC!
If you haven’t heard, the FDA has waged a battle with the supplement industry about N-acetyl cysteine (NAC).
When I found out this was happening, I immediately bulk ordered any NAC I could find because it’s actually one of my favorite supplements and I am worried it’s going to become very difficult to find.
NAC is a potent antioxidant and creates glutathione in the body, which is extremely helpful for a number of reasons.
But now, the FDA has determined that it’s not a dietary supplement.
Even with 1000 clinical trials, the FDA is claiming that NAC isn’t legal for you to take as a supplement. And now they’re forcing companies like Amazon to pick a side.
It’s been virtually swept off Amazon’s shelves!
The jury is still out on whether NAC will be available without a prescription at other retailers for much longer.
I’m honestly pretty disappointed because NAC is such a good supplement that helps replenish glutathione, one of the body’s most important antioxidants.
Glutathione is nicknamed the Master Antioxidant (GSH), and it’s necessary to live a healthy life. When you take NAC, your body converts it to cysteine, which is a key building block to make glutathione.
It’s powerful enough to protect your entire body from disease and health issues. Here’s just a few of its benefits:
- Lowers inflammation
- Anti-Aging effects
- Protects the Brain
- Regenerates other antioxidants like Vitamin C and E
The problem with most supplements claiming to raise glutathione is that they have one major flaw – they don’t make it through the blood-brain barrier.
NAC is so effective because it’s one of few supplements that makes it to the brain.
The reason I love NAC so much is because my body really needs more glutathione. And this is largely due to my genes.
For example, I’ve got variants of the UGT2A1 gene that put me more at risk for oxidative stress and lower glutathione levels.
Even though NAC has been my go-to, my SelfDecode Cognitive DNA Wellness Report told me about another supplement that can make it through the blood-brain barrier: liposomal glutathione.
And there’s even more good news – your body can make glutathione on its own… if you give it the building blocks through diet or supplements.
You just have to know what your body needs, and you can do that by looking at your genes!
NAC was one of my own recommendations on my SelfDecode Cognitive DNA Wellness Report, but luckily there are 22 MORE supplement, diet and lifestyle recommendations to keep me going.
