NAC as a supplement has many uses including mood disorders, brain issues, lung problems, sleep disorders, infections, and in states of oxidative stress. It can even help protect you from the flu. At Art of Skin Care, we like it for treating oxidative stress in the skin caused by sugar and alcohol intake.

NAC supplementation can also help "pre-tox" your body when taken before alcohol, thereby minimizing the damage associated with alcohol consumption. NAC is a form of the amino acid cysteine, which in addition to increasing glutathione also reduces acetaldehyde toxicity that causes many hangover symptoms.
Taking NAC 30 minutes before you drink can help lessen the alcohol's toxic effects. NAC is thought to work even better when combined with vitamin B1 (thiamine), Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C may also help to lessen hangover symptoms.
In a recent study, doctors discovered that moderately high doses of NAC (1800 mg per day) led to improvements in women with PCOS. The researchers reported in the International Journal of Fertility and Sterility that NAC led to more frequent monthly ovulations, which should improve fertility. The supplements also prompted significant decreases in weight, body-mass index, and waist-to-hip ratio. In addition, the women's fasting blood sugar, insulin levels and insulin resistance, total cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol decreased. Meanwhile, their HDL (good) cholesterol levels improved.
