4 Research suggests N-acetylcysteine (NAC) may be useful against COVID-19 because it:
- Eliminates inflammation and decreases T cell response
- Reduces glutathione levels
- Loosens mucus and augments hypercoagulation
- Reduces oxidative stress and inhibits hypercoagulation
By raising glutathione, NAC combats oxidative stress, which is a main cause of the cytokine storm associated with COVID-19. NAC also inhibits hypercoagulation and breaks up blood clots, which is another complication seen in some COVID-19 cases. Learn more.
