N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) Helps Against COVID-19
In their review article “N-Acetylcysteine to Combat COVID-19: An Evidence Review“, published on PubMed, the authors Zhongcheng and Carlos A Puyo, working at the Department of Pathology and Immunology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas and Department of Pathology, Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston, Texas, published interesting case reports.
They report that N-Acetylcysteine, which is also available as an oral supplement, helped tremendously to cure several individuals with Covid-19.
“…However, the vaccine has shown limited benefit in the elderly, suggesting an age-dependent immune response.
As a result, exploring new applications of existing medications could potentially provide valuable treatments for COVID-19.
N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has been used in clinical practice to treat critically ill septic patients, and more recently for COVID-19 patients.
NAC has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating characteristics that may prove beneficial in the treatment and prevention of SARS-Cov-2. This review offers a thorough analysis of NAC and discusses its potential use for treatment of COVID-19.”
There is some speculation that the FDA might prohibit the sale of NAC (after allowing it for decades as a supplement, suddenly arguing it’s a drug), so you may want to run to the next vitamin shop and purchase some NAC before it’s gone. Typical dosage is 600mg to 2,400mg. Do your research before taking it, I’m not a physician and not liable for anything as usual 😉
