N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a derivative of the naturally occurring amino acid, cysteine. NAC has an extensive history of use as a mucolytic (breaks down mucous) in the treatment of acute and chronic lung conditions such as emphysema, bronchitis, chronic asthma, and cystic fibrosis. It directly splits the sulfur linkages of mucoproteins thereby reducing viscosity of bronchial and lung secretions. As a result it improves bronchial and lung function, reduces cough, and improves oxygen saturation in the blood.

  • NO Artificial Coloring, Flavoring or Preservatives
  • NO Corn, Gluten, Soy, Wheat or Yeast
  • NO Dairy products
  • NO Salt or Sugar

In detailed analysis of 39 human trials it has been concluded that oral NAC reduces the risk of exacerbations (severe worsening) and improves symptoms in patients with chronic bronchitis compared with a placebo.

In addition to its benefits to respiratory health, NAC is serves as a nutritional precursor for the synthesis of glutathione, which is a powerful antioxidant. Glutathione also detoxifies chemicals into less harmful compounds. N-Acetyl Cysteine has also been shown to be effective in treating liver failure and detoxifying heavy metals from the body.

Implications for use include

  • Respiratory disease or distress such as cough, chronic bronchitis, asthma
  • Liver disease - protects against liver toxins
  • Detoxification
  • Antioxidant protection through enhanced glutathione levels

Available in 60 capsules.

    Comments about Integrative Therapeutics NAC:

    Our dog was smelly, itchy, hair thin and patchy growth, manic behaviors, high anxiety, temperament volatile, and tormented by itching. We tried diet, medicated shampoos, oatmeal baths, powders, and tons of love. I read on a dog website about Acetylcysteine and we decided to try it. 2 weeks later, a different dog. His hair is growing in evenly, soft and fluffy; he has stopped itching, he doesn't smell, he is calm and no longer neurotically anxious.

    Comments about Integrative Therapeutics NAC:

    Purchased this originally for my cat, Barney's asthma. I wanted something natural. Unfortunately, adding to his food didn't work too well. Overall I didn't see a lot of improvement. My husband has recently started having lung problems. I started giving him this product and he feels somewhat better after using it. He has trouble with mucous buildup. this seems to loosen things up.

    Comments about Integrative Therapeutics NAC:

    Have a dog with severe allergies and breathing difficulties, age 12. Vet says she has enlarged heart, narrowing esophegus; typical of small dogs. Meds prescribed were $10 a pill, and would over time deteriorate her overall health. N.A.C. saved the day! I break open the capsules and add 1/3 of it to my dogs morning meal. Keeps her breathing without choking as much. This with a few other supplements keeps her going and off pricey "treat the ailment only" meds! Another dog, age 12, also has quit "garboling" (heavy breathing) and her night snoring as a result of this plus salmon oil, and some other natural vitamins and minerals also purchased from Only Natural Products. I'm convinced holistic is the way to go!

    Comments about Integrative Therapeutics NAC:

    When I could force my cat to take it, it worked! Unfortunately it has to be forced. She will not eat food that has the medicine and she spits out water that I had added it to and squirted into her mouth. I bought specific treats that hide pills and put the powder in the middle, but she wont eat the treat so again I have to force it. I tried other remedies, but really this works best, I just can't get it into her.

    good for asthma

    Comments about Integrative Therapeutics NAC:

    What I thought was furball that was stuck in my cat's throat turned out to be asthma. He was "coughing" quite a bit but the vet didn't seem overly concerned or interested in treating it. So, I found NAC on this site after putting in "asthma" in the search.

    I will say that the supplement is effective in that his coughing diminished to the point where it's very rare for him to be coughing. However, the taste is horrible. I tasted it myself and it's very sour/bitter so while he's a voratious eater with little objections to what he eats, he has a hard time finishing his meal with the powder mixed in. Hunger will overtake and he'll eventually eat it, but you can tell it's not his preferred choice.

    If the powder can somehow be flavoured like the senior's cat vitamin formula (which he thinks is a treat), I think it would be easier to give it to him. If he was a picky eater like my other cat, there's no way he will eat it in his food, and there's no chance you can force it down their throat as the pills are huge and you're only supposed to give it 1/4 cap (which is still a lot).

    Does not work for my Cat

    Pros

    • Easy To Administer

      Comments about Integrative Therapeutics NAC:

      I also purchased this product along with the Respiratory Relief with great hopes, unfortunately this product did nothing to help with the mucas and congestion for my cat's asthma. Chest x-rays showed no improvement whatsoever. I wanted this to work so i could use something herbal/homeopatic for my cat but it just doesn't do anything for him.

        Unable to administer

            Comments about Integrative Therapeutics NAC:

            We oh so want to use this for our little asthmatic cat but we cannot get him to take it. I have mixed it in his canned food, he would not eat it. I mixed it with water and squirted it into his mouth. He spit it out. I dipped my finger in canned food then the med and forced it into his mouth. He still found a way to spit it out. I wish there was some other way to use this besides opening a capsule and trying to divide the powder into quarters. Is there anything else for sale that is non-steroidal?
