About this item
Regulators supports the production and utilization of glutathione, the foremost protective and regulatory antioxidant naturally concentrated in all healthy cells. NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) is proven to boost glutathione production. Selenium and molybdenum are essential for facilitating glutathione?s role in supporting energy production, detoxification and other fundamental life processes. Doctor's Best NAC Detox Regulators supports the body?s natural biochemical pathways for neutralizing and excreting toxins. The three nutrients in this product?NAC (N-AcetylCysteine) and the essential minerals selenium (Se), and molybdenum (Mo)?sustain glutathione, the body?s most important antitoxin, along with many enzymes that use glutathione to neutralize toxins and clear them from the body. These nutrients are all naturally integral to the body?s biochemistry. They are therefore ortho molecules, or right molecules for the body, following the idea of ?the right molecules in the right amounts? for optimal health as conceived by two-time Nobel Prizewinner Professor Linus Pauling. NAC is the nutrient best proven to sustain the body?s glutathione stores. Glutathione is concentrated in all human cells. Detoxification (?detox?) enzymes in the liver, kidneys, lungs, and other organs use glutathione to bond with (?conjugate?) toxins and thereby make them able to mix into water for excretion (usually via the urine). The Se and Mo in this formulation each have unique properties that power detox enzymes. The detox system has considerable overlap with the antioxidant defense (?antiox?) and redox regulatory (?redox?) systems. Selenium is required by a variety of enzymes that are detox, antiox and redox regulators. Molybdenum is indispensable for enzymes that detoxify sulfur compounds. This product?s combination of NAC plus Se plus Mo supports a diverse collection of detox enzymes that dispose of natural and manmade toxins (refer to the Table, Factors That Deplete Glutathione). NAC Supports Numerous Detox Functions. NAC?s detox value is grounded in its rapid conversion to cysteine that protects the blood and body fluids; the cells? need for cysteine to make glutathione; and direct antitoxin effects by NAC itself. Supplies Cysteine To Make Glutathione. Taken by mouth, NAC elevates cysteine in the blood. Cysteine is the predominant antitoxin and antioxidant of the blood and other body fluids. Taking NAC is actually a better way to get cysteine than cysteine itself (l-cysteine), which is too unstable to be used in dietary supplements. NAC?s acetyl group keeps it stable for its absorption into the blood, then subsequently its acetyl group is removed (mostly by liver enzymes) and the molecule becomes cysteine. Cysteine may be a conditionally essential nutrient. The diet of some human populations may be relatively deficient in cysteine, and (beginning around the fourth decade of life) glutathione levels decline with age. A pioneering cysteine researcher strongly advocated taking NAC to support healthy aging, suggesting ?Everybody is likely to experience a cysteine deficiency sooner or later.? Sustains The Body?s Glutathione Status. Glutathione is the most highly concentrated antitoxin and antioxidant within human cells, and adequate glutathione is a must for good health. Glutathione is used to neutralize toxins, whether these originate outside the body or are naturally produced by the body. Healthy cells continually ?top up? their glutathione stores by importing cysteine from the blood (not glutathione), then making new glutathione from scratch. The supply of cysteine is normally the limiting factor for the cells to make glutathione. Supplementing with NAC therefore helps sustain both cysteine levels in the blood, and glutathione levels inside the cells. Further, NAC and cysteine also help neutralize potentially toxic ?free radicals? and other oxidants that the body itself naturally and continually produces. These include oxygen free radicals (oxyradicals), nitrogen free radicals, and free radicals of sulfur. Protects Against Oxidative Stress.
