Back in May, 2021, the FDA wanted NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine) removed from the OTC market including Amazon. Thousands of NAC supplements were delisted from Amazon and taken off the shelves of Whole Foods. NAC has been licensed for 59 years in the US. But unlike many supplements, it has been extensively studied and is widely used and very safe.
But now that Covid is officially over, they have allowed it to once again be sold on Amazon! Go figure!
I’ve taken NAC for almost 7 years and do not want to lose this vital (very natural) supplement.
Before coronavirus, FDA recognized NAC as an ordinary food supplement
N-acetyl-cysteine is an inexpensive amino acid with hundreds of validated scientific studies behind it. NAC provides cysteine, the amino acid for the synthesis of glutathione, the body’s main antioxidant and master detoxifier.
It is so highly effective at thinning mucus secretions, that it has been patented into various medicines. It also works wonders to break up clots!
It has become a favorite treatment intervention for many functional doctors because it is so effective for a very wide variety of conditions.
Just one of its many assets, NAC helps convert dangerous cancer-causing estrogen metabolites to safer estrogens that can be eliminated by your body. (source)
Without NAC, women would suffer. In actuality, all would suffer – as you will see.
The Real Reason the FDA attacked NAC
The study references NAC! Exact wording is “rescued by treatment with N-acetyl-L-cysteine“!
(N-acetyl L-cysteine is a synonym for N-acetylcysteine).
Look at the date of the study: March 2021… They took NAC off of the shelves just 2 months later in May, 2021.
Why would they inject people with something that they know is harmful, and then take the “remedy” for the damage off of the shelves?
Don’t we already know the answer?
FDA Is Aiding Covid-19 Vaccine Makers, Attempting Removal Of a Competing Supplement
NAC is marketed without any disease claims so, what is the problem?
It’s about NAC “curing” COVID-19. The FDA appears to be changing regulations on behalf of vaccine makers who are allowed to market their experimental vaccines under emergency use provisions as long as “there are no adequate approved and available alternatives.”
NAC was just such an alternative that could negate the emergency use of COVID-19 vaccines. (Along with many natural God-given foods with shikimic acid, and more).
So, Amazon.com caved in to the FDA and removed NAC from its online offerings. The dietary supplement industry advised its members to continue selling NAC supplements, thankfully.
N-Acetyl Cysteine & Severe COVID-19
The British Medical Journal (Oct., 2020) alerted the medical community that “a distinctive feature of COVID-19 is the presence of mucus plugs in the respiratory tract which explains the severity of this disease… and we recommend treatment with NAC to relieve bronchial obstruction.” (emphasis mine)
Since we know that T-cells, not antibodies, control COVID-19 infection long-term, NAC becomes more attractive because of its ability to raise T-cell counts through its ability to increase glutathione levels. Furthermore, NAC activates a type of white blood cell (natural killer cells) that kills virally infected cells.
The Many Life-Giving Health Benefits of NAC (and this is just a few)
- Shown to prevent the progression of breast cancer.
- Yale researchers add “reduction of hearing loss” to the many benefits
- Used as an antidote to acetaminophen poisoning for over 50 years
- Excellent results in COPD and lung disease, damage, and infection in adults and children (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
- Protects from many toxins and pollutants, including glyphosate
- Helps with obsessive-compulsive symptoms and addiction (NAC is neuroprotective)
- Relieves endometriosis
- Helps prevent the flu
- Great biofilm disruptor
- Improves fertility – which may be another reason it is being banned (read between the lines!)
- helps for recurrent unexplained pregnancy loss (so SAFE in pregnancy)
Natural sources of NAC include:
- Brussels sprout
- red pepper
- split pea
- sunflower seed
- white bean
- plain cultured yogurt
Update 2-20-23: Once again, you can purchase NAC on Amazon, at your local health food store, or at your favorite online vitamin shop.
Be sure you don’t have a contraindication for NAC first.
NAC is a life-saving compound and will stay fresh for several (3-4) years if you have it on hand.
Recommendations depending on the symptoms/conditions you are treating (Source Dr. Axe):
- Between 600–1,800 milligrams of NAC daily seems to be effective against many conditions; a 600 mg. capsule taken two to three times a day is the recommended dosage to start with.
- There’s evidence that 2,000 milligrams is safe for most adults.
- Higher doses may be needed to treat certain chronic and degenerative diseases, including COPD, impaired glucose control and cancer. For example, doses of about 2,800 milligrams per day for up to three months seem to be effective for adults with COPD, according to some studies.
