      I am sort of skeptical of this. OTC drugs (especially decongestants) often contain other ingredients that cause liver damage. Any drug or supplement should be carefully monitored by your Dr. And sometimes you have to demand that your Dr. do this.

      BoiseB so many people est foods which cintain NAC that taking a pill is nearly redundant.

      Arugula.
      Bok Choy.
      Broccoli.
      Brussel Sprouts.
      Cabbage.
      Cauliflower.
      Collard Greens.
      Kale.

      It is very liver protective. The pill is a fractionated part of a whole. It is one of the pills I chose to take when I was in the dark as to what the holy heck was wrong with me.

      What is the N-A-C? I tried Googling it but found nothing.

      @Carool: N-acetyl cysteine .. It is supposed to be liver protective, loosen mucus, and help a body to start producing glutathione again.
