NAC supplements are available to help you produce the antioxidant glutathione.

With industrial agriculture, our food sources are being depleted of minerals and nutritional qualities.  As a result, our bodies glutathione levels may become depleted.

Glutathione can be thought of as a primary detox pathway.  The liver uses up its reserves when performing certain detox functions.  Taking NAC is widely regarded as a hangover cure.
