Detoxing is often used to help rid the body of harmful chemicals and metals. As well as eliminating toxins, it can help boost the immune system and energy levels, support digestion and weight loss, and reduce inflammation.

The body has its own detox organ: the liver. When the liver is functioning at its best, it does the job of ridding the body of heavy metal build-up or certain substances it does not need or use. However, when the liver needs a little help, a detox supplement can help get things running smoothly again.  So what is a good detox supplement?

The NAC Plus 200 supplement is a brand new and unique product from Make Well for those in search of a boost in liver function. Let’s take a closer look at this vegan NAC supplement, what it contains, and how it works.

What is N-acetylcysteine?

N-acetylcysteine is an acetylated form of the amino acid cysteine. Cysteine is an important part of the tripeptide glutathione, which is also known as our body’s strongest antioxidant. NAC may be gained from animal-derived ingredients such as bird feathers. Make Well, however, uses vegan ingredients and a microbial fermentation process to yield its NAC.

NAC has also been known to help break up build-ups of thick mucus in the body that may cause problems in patients who suffer from cystic fibrosis or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). N-acetylcysteine can be taken orally via pill or capsule, through an IV, or in spray form.

What is the NAC Plus 200 supplement?

The NAC Plus 200 supplement by Make Well is designed to help promote healthy function of the liver. It is vegan and includes choline, an essential nutrient that encourages healthy metabolism by helping synthesise phospholipids. Another helpful substance for liver function is artichoke leaves and their bioactive compound, cynarin.

NAC Plus 200 ingredient breakdown

The NAC Plus 200 supplement includes a variety of different ingredients to help aid in overall health. They include:

N-acetylcysteine

As mentioned above, N-acetylcysteine can aid in cleaving mucous biofilms and contribute to neutralisation of harmful oxygen species as a precursor of glutathione.

Artichoke extract

Artichoke extract is used in the NAC supplement because of its high levels of cynarin. Cynarin works as an antioxidant and has also been known to help stabilise cholesterol levels, which in turn will help the liver to function at its most optimal level.

Calcium carbonate

Calcium is introduced into the supplement in the form of calcium carbonate. This chemical compound helps encourage the binding of acids, which aids the acid-base metabolism.

Choline

Choline is an essential nutrient used in the proper function of synthesis, which also helps with the transfer of fatty lipids throughout the body. It is integral in cellular membrane synthesis.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the main contributors to a healthy and functional immune system. It is an ascorbic acid that protects cells from toxins and also acts as an antioxidant to help the body rid itself of free radicals.

Riboflavin

Riboflavin is in the B vitamin family – more specifically, Vitamin B2. It contributes to the overall growth of cells and the maintenance processes of certain mucous membranes. It is also used to help break down carbohydrates, fats and proteins, which encourages a healthy level of energy.

 

What is the NAC supplement used for?

The NAC supplement is most widely used in conjunction with a detox plan, but it can be used on a daily basis to help support proper function of the liver so that it continues to detox on its own. It can also be used to help boost immune function, as it has Vitamin C, and it can encourage proper cellular function with its level of Riboflavin.

All the supplement ingredients work together to help keep the body running at its best. The optimal levels of each vitamin and mineral are based on recommended daily doses and should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise plan for best results.

Ethical supplements

What sets the Make Well NAC Plus 200 supplement apart is its production. It is lab-tested for the presence of pesticides and heavy metals to ensure no unneeded toxins are present; it is free from fructose, lactose and gluten; and no colourants or unnecessary fillers are used in its production.  Further, it contains no animal-derived ingredients, and due to its unique combination of ingredients, it has a more pleasant smell than other NAC products (as cysteine contains sulphur, NAC in many products has a characteristic sulphuric smell).

Getting the daily recommended values of the vitamins and minerals your body requires will keep you in good health. Since many people can’t achieve this through diet alone, the next safest way to ensure you’re getting what you need is through supplementation. The NAC Plus 200 supplement can be found on the Make Well website, along with other health information and supplement products.
