    Default FDA Wants to Ban NAC Now That It Combats COVID-19

    I no longer read mercola.com articles but they continue to arrive in my inbox daily and I see the headlines. Granted, they are usually clickbait, but this article on NAC is informative and instructive.

    Story at-a-glance


    • N-acetylcysteine (NAC) has a long history of use as a first-aid remedy for acetaminophen poisoning. Compelling research suggests it may also be useful against COVID-19
    • 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
    • NAC helps loosen thick mucus in the lungs and improves a variety of lung-related problems, including pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), both of which are common characteristics of COVID-19
    • NAC has been shown to inhibit replication of influenza virus
    • Aside from increasing glutathione, NAC may also prevent or improve COVID-19 infection by improving T cell response and modulating inflammation

    So what should we do, hoard it? Short on solutions.

    Well, wanting to ban it and actually banning it are separate steps. I frequently read in the news the story of some politician wanting to do this or enact that or change or prohibit something else… and we rarely hear anything about it ever again. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this were the case with NAC.
