N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), an amino acid-derived compound, is increasing in popularity as a growing number of scientific studies indicate it’s potential for health and longevity.
Some of the benefits attributed to NAC supplementation;
N-acetyl Cysteine (NAC) Helps Reverse DNA Damage
A recent study published in Human Molecular Genetics discovered a possible benefit for NAC in preventing and repairing DNA damage in Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) which causes premature aging in children between 8 and 21 years of age. “We found that DNA damage can be controlled and our findings could be an important step to helping both children with progeria and older people to live lives that are less debilitating in terms of health problems” Dr. Hutchinson remarked.

Shortened Telomeres Associated with Early Mortality
In a 19 year human study, telomere length was found to decrease with age in both men and women. Shortened telomeres were detected in 25% of the participants, and were associated with a 49% adjusted increase in heart attack risk, a 24% increased risk of heart disease, and a 25% greater risk of early mortality.
