NAC has a similar structure to the amino acid L-cysteine, as it is its acetylated form. N-acetyl cysteine shares a similar structure with the enzyme glutathione, being its direct precursor.
NAC has an easy digestibility and high bioactivity in the human body. It has been found that upon administration of 200-400 mg NAC, the peak plasma levels can be reached within 1-2 hours.
Because of the fact that it is a potent precursor of glutathione, the administration of NAC shows strong antioxidant effectiveness that has a positive action against radicals, such as hypochlorous acid and hydroxyl, but not against hydrogen peroxide and superoxide.
