PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine Application Notes N-Acetyl-L-cysteine acts as a free-radical scavenger and inhibits the production of reactive oxygen species which can damage cellular structures. It is critical for the production of Glutathione, a key antioxidant enzyme in the body. It has also been shown to induce apoptosis in vascular smooth muscle cells, indicating that these cells respond differently to changes in reduction-oxidation state than other tissues that are normally protected by the presence of antioxidants.
