Integrative Therapeutics N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) is a dietary supplement for antioxidant support. Our bodies are exposed to oxidative stress from free radicals and other reactive oxygen species on a daily basis. Therefore, maintaining on optimal level of antioxidant activity in our body is crucial to combatting oxidative stress and maintaining overall health. N-Acetyl L-Cysteine (NAC) is a highly effective antioxidant that actually works on two fronts. First it scavenges free radicals and other reactive oxygen species. Secondly, it helps to replenish intracellular glutathione which is considered the keystone antioxidant in the body. Supplemental NAC is well absorbed so that you can count on it to deliver its antioxidant power to your cells where it is needed most. At OVitaminPro we believe in the need for supplemental antioxidants to protect overall health and we are confident in recommending Integrative Therapeutics NAC for your supplemental antioxidant needs.
Recommended usage: Take 1 capsule once or twice daily, or as recommended by your healthcare professional.

Hello Dr. Dan. I've been taking N-A-C from Carlson Labs. It does not contain rice flour, but I like Integrative Therapeutics and was wondering if the Rice Flour in this formulation has been tested for mercury. Rice is known for having high levels of mercury. Thanks!
It is true that rice can contain arsenic, lead and mercury. California rice seems to have lower levels than Asian sources. These metals are natural products found in the soils around the world so are found in many foods. They are only labeled if packaged or in supplements for example. Personally, I subscribe to a hierarchy system of concerns. Some things just aren’t as dangerous as others. I don’t think these trace amounts of metals aren’t very dangerous if you keep your glutathione levels at a decent level. I put antibiotics, pesticides and herbicides in food way up the worry list, far ahead of small amounts of these metals. Some studies have indicated that these heavy metals won’t cause any harm until the glutathione is depleted. NAC, of course, is a precursor to glutathione so it comes with its own protection. Reputable companies like IT work to keep contaminants out of their supplements as much as humanly possible.
