“Better Breathing” Hero PROTECTS Your Lungs
Respiratory diseases make life difficult at best. And a living nightmare at worst.
Lung-ravaging conditions like COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) can leave you gasping for air and feeling like you’re breathing through a straw. And infections like bronchitis come with an exhausting, mucus-filled cough.
In the worst-case scenarios, respiratory diseases can force you onto a ventilator.
But don’t give up on breathing easier. An effective, low-cost option is available that’s proven to protect the lungs and airways.
In fact, this affordable solution may even provide a shield against bacteria and viruses.
N-acetylcysteine, or NAC, is a cheap and effective solution for fighting back against a variety of respiratory complaints.
Derived from the amino acid L-cysteine, NAC was first approved as a drug in 1960.
NAC is a natural mucolytic, so it was initially used to break up thick mucus in patients with respiratory diseases like cystic fibrosis and COPD.
More recent studies show NAC can reduce flare-ups of chronic bronchitis.
It’s associated with clinical improvements in folks with COPD, including reduced inflammation, fewer flare-ups, decreased severity, and fewer days spent in the hospital.
And research reveals NAC can even improve outcomes in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which occurs when fluid builds up in the tiny, elastic air sacs in your lungs.
This dangerous condition deprives organs of the oxygen they need to function and has been seen in severe cases of COVID-19.
The reasons for NAC’s remarkable breathing benefits boil down to three main things.
- breaks down excess mucus, making it less sticky and dense
- dampens oxidative stress by scavenging free radicals and contributing to the production of the powerful antioxidant glutathione
- combats inflammation by reducing pro-inflammatory compounds such as TNF-alpha, IL-6, and IL-8
Plus, in vivo studies show NAC could even provide some protection against common respiratory infections.
Evidence shows that the supplement shields against bacterial infections by preventing bacteria from sticking to the cells lining the airway walls. Plus, NAC can also stop viruses from reproducing while restoring airway cells to normal.
More research is needed, as is often true with inexpensive, unbranded remedies. However, the available evidence suggests that NAC a relatively safe way to treat or prevent many respiratory diseases.
NAC is widely available without a prescription from numerous supplement companies. And it typically costs less than $10 for a month’s supply.
If you’re considering using NAC to treat a medical condition, I suggest discussing it with a trusted healthcare provider BEFORE starting to make sure it’s the right option for you.
P.S. Breathe easier with THIS potent vitamin.
