Finding NAC

Posted by Margie E @margiebanks, Sep 29 8:29am

I've been out of the lung support NAC by Jarrow. Seems it's nowhere to be found online. Suggestions anyone? Thanks Margie

NAC was challenged as a supplement by the FDA, because in MUCH higher doses, it has been used in hospitals as an emergency detox against Tylenol and some other overdoses. As a result, a number of companies, including Jarrow, have dropped it. There are still some brands available. I have used Swanson brand, and it is still available.

These are NAC brands that an herbalist recommended to me that can still be purchased: Protocol for Life, Caroson, Thorne, Doctors Best, NOW Foods, and Source Naturals. You can find them on http://www.iherb.com.

Hi Terri –
I asked that at my Co-op. They said they received notice from their distributor that 3 companies stopped offering it due to the FDA challenge. It seems they are worried because they also produce regulated meds and don't want to get in a fight. Others seem to have decided the FDA is all bark and no bite on this matter.
I have still baan able to find it with a little lookinng.
