- Antioxidant3 and mucolytic to help clear bronchial passages.4
N-Acetyl cysteine promotes glutathione synthesis by
donating sulfhydryl groups to support cysteine synthesis.5Glutathione conjugation is a major phase II detoxification
pathway responsible for making intermediate metabolites formed from phase I detoxification more water-soluble and therefore more easily excreted.6 N-Acetyl cysteine also enhances glutathione-S-transferase activity extracellularly to further support xenobiotic detoxification.7
Heavy metal elimination is enhanced by N-Acetyl cysteine.This action is due to the thiol side chains of N-Acetyl cysteine binding metals to assist their removal from intracellular and
extra cellular spaces. Studies have shown that N-Acetyl cysteine
is capable of binding mercury, lead, and cadmium and copper.8
N-Acetyl cysteine also has mucolytic properties, thereby
assisting clearance of bronchial passages as shown in
animal and human studies.9 N-Acetyl cysteine cleaves disulphide bonds that crosslink glycoproteins in mucous resulting in reduced mucous viscosity.10
