15 Common Nutrient Deficiencies & Symptoms

#3 Glutahione and N-Acetylcysteine (NAC)

Why is it important?

Glutathione is known as the "Master Antioxidant." It helps prevent damage to vital intracellular

components caused by reactive oxygen species -AKA- free radicals, peroxides, lipid peroxides, and heavy metals. Lowers homocysteine and lipoprotein-a (both markers of inflammation). Heals lungs and helps increase liver detoxification, increases immune function, reduces muscle fatigue. Immense research shows direct links between poor metabolism glutathione and increased risk of chronic diseases.

Deficiency symptoms

levels, premature aging symptoms
