Cystine B6 (N-Acetyl L-Cysteine or NAC) is an amino acid precursor to glutathione (GSH). Cystine B6 is a critical antioxidant. NAC or Cystine B6 is more bio-available than glutathione. Glutathione consists of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. The body breaks this tripeptide apart before absorption, but the most valuable amino acid for making glutathione is the Cystine B6. Cystine B6 is the precursor to glutathione. This means it needs to be present for your body to manufacturer glutathione. Just taking glutathione directly is NOT the correct way to increase your body’s level of glutathione, you need to take the precursor to glutathione, namely Cystine B6 (NAC).
I highly recommend you take the time to listen to the doctor featured in the video to your right. He clearly outlines the importance of NAC (Cystine B6) in your regular DAILY Supplementation.
There are many uses for Cystine B6, NAC:
(for more information on each of these please read the medical descriptions below)
- Prevents Flu – especially important with imminent pandemic warnings
- Builds Immune System – increases glutathione production to fight off illness and disease
- Improves Respiratory Ailments – loosening mucus to cough it out
- Reduces Lp(a) Levels – reduces Heart Disease
- Reduces Heart Damage
- Enhances Affects of Nitroglycerine
- Reduces the Affects of Toxins – with higher GSH levels for chelation and detoxification
- Antioxidant – prevents premature aging
This is 50 grams (50,000mgs) of pure Cystine B6, N-Acetyl L-Cysteine, powder – a pure white powder – Perfect for adding to health drinks and smoothies. This is NOT in a capsule. Based on the recommended dosage of 600mg/day this is an 83 day supply! 600mg is one level 1/4 teaspoon. It is very easy to measure Cystine B6, NAC, N-Acetyl L-Cysteine powder.

Prevents Flu (Influenza) and Improves Respiratory Symptoms
Cystine B6 (NAC) has been used for decades as a mucolytic to treat bronchopulmonary diseases including cystic fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, asthma, and some pneumonias. Cystine B6 (NAC) can reduce the thickness of your mucus so it may be easily coughed up. Recently, studies have supported taking Cystine B6 to prevent influenza and some flu-like symptoms. Recommended Cystine B6, NAC dosage was 600mg twice a day.
Lp(a) levels are an indicator of heart disease. Lp(a) is more reliable than blood cholesterol levels, low density lipoprotein (HDL) levels, or the ratio of LDL to HDL. But, diets and drugs designed to lower blood cholesterol do not lower Lp(a) levels. The most reliable nutrient to lower Lp(a) is Cystine B6 (NAC). Cystine B6 reduced Lp(a) levels by 70%. Cystine B6 breaks up the disulfide bonds by converting each disulfide group into two sulphydryl groups.
Cystine B6 inhibits heart damage by preventing oxidation of LDL, by lowering plasma homocysteine levels, and by reducing effects of free-radicals. Cystine B6 protects against ischaemic and reperfusion damage. Cystine B6 also enhances the coronary dilating and anti-platelet effects of nitroglycerine. Finally, ST-depression, sign of myocardial ischaemia, was not seen following pretreatment with Cystine B6, suggesting attenuation of impaired tissue oxygenation and preservation of myocardial performance by Cystine B6.
Detoxification & Chelator
Sulphydryl groups protect against toxins. SH groups react directly with many poisons – including herbicides, drugs (acetaminophen), environmental pollutants (carbon tetrachloride, microorganisms like E. coli & aflatoxin), and heavy metals (lead, mercury, arsenic). Cystine B6 helps detoxification by producing optimal amounts of GSH making harmful compounds less toxic.
Note: Cystine B6 (NAC) is approved as a drug to prevent liver damage from acetaminophen overdose
Immunity and AIDS
Cystine B6 improves immunity via intracellular GSH production when normal GSH production is impaired (ie. HIV). Research has shown that reduced intracellular GSH is the “direct and early consequence of retroviral infection”. Intracellular GSH has a powerful influence on how well T- and B-lymphocyte cells function and the production of phagocytes (macrophages, monocytes and neutrophils). Cystine B6, NAC has been shown to block the AIDS virus production in-vitro.
