N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)

NAC is a form of the amino acid cysteine and has long been associated with protecting the liver. It is a precursor to glutathione, your body’s master antioxidant. It can help “recycle” other antioxidants, and helps to reduce oxidative stress in the liver, but systematically as well. Studies suggest that it may provide an extra layer of protection from viruses.
