I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
Anyone take NAC?
I don't take it and have never heard of it.
What kind of a therapist? What is the benefit supposed to be for you? Is it counter-indicated by any medications you are now taking?
If you search and think it might help, speak to your pharmacist.
NAC is N-Acetyl Cysteine which is a building block for the brain's master antioxidant glutathione. The depletion of glutathione is a key factor in the onset of Alzheimer's disease, but the transport of cystine/cysteine in the brain is inhibited in Alzheimer's so trying to supplement with N-Acetyl Cysteine may not help much.
