- Viridian NAC+ (N-acetyl cysteine) 60 Veg Caps
Viridian NAC+ 60 Veg Caps N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) – promising anti-ageing and ‘willpower’ research.
Recently in the news following an anti-ageing research project at Durham University, NAC is in considerable demand. Numerous studies suggest NAC is appropriate for supplementation in the area of ‘willpower’ support. NAC is a precursor to the amino acid cysteine, which ultimately plays two key metabolic roles. Through its metabolic contribution to glutathione production, cysteine participates in the general antioxidant activities of the body. Through its role as a modulator of the glutamatergic system, cysteine influences the reward-reinforcement pathway. In this way NAC may well offer promise in issues such as OCD hair pulling and nail biting and possibly more prevalent addictive behaviours.
NAC+ Veg Caps from Viridian Nutrition offers a combination of NAC (N-acetyl cysteine), Chromium, L-Glutamine and Cinnamon. The accessory elements in this formula - Chromium, L-Glutamine and Cinnamon - offer supportive actions to NAC. Chromium and Cinnamon have applications in blood-sugar balance. Obsessional cravings are reduced when the irregular highs and lows of sugar imbalance are alleviated. Glutamine is one of the three amino acids involved in glutathione synthesis. Glutathione, an important intracellular antioxidant and hepatic detoxifier, is comprised of glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine. Initial studies have shown that glutamine supplementation reduces alcohol intake, a finding that has been confirmed in double-blind human research. Glutamine crosses the blood /brain barrier readily and is converted into Glutamic acid in the brain.
Viridian's NAC+ helps support the conditions as described above and in addition has been formulated specifically to target the area of willpower, cravings, addiction, dependency,compulsive behaviour and to provide nutritional and botanical support to support an integrated approach. This formula also supports the fundamental aspects of liver detoxification and glycaemic control.
Dosage: Take two to four capsules daily with food.
Viridian Nutrition: the fundamentals
Nutrition is the fundamental cornerstone to human health. Every single reaction, biochemical pathway, and physiological event that takes place in our bodies, requires nutrients at some stage. An elaborate and perfectly organised sequence of vitamins, minerals, fats, and amino acids, allow our bodies to function on a day to day basis. However, when our needs in this area are not met, things can quickly begin to go awry. Therefore it is essential that we pay serious attention to our daily diet. A diet based around whole foods, fruits vegetables, and the right types of fats can be the greatest health insurance we can have. Nutritional supplementation is also a practical tool. It is a sad fact that in today’s modern world, we cannot rely 100% upon the quality and nutrient density of even the best fresh produce, due to intensive farming, depleted soils and environmental factors. Coupled with this, we have far greater physical demands placed upon us, meaning that very often our requirements for specific nutrients are higher than they ever have been if we are able to cope physiologically. Nutritional supplements, when used correctly can be a valuable tool in addressing such issues.
Government surveys have identified the following groups of people as being at especial risk from low vitamin and mineral intakes: highly active people, menstruating women, vegetarians and vegans, the elderly, slimmers, pregnant and breast-feeding women, smokers, drinkers and faddy eaters.
