Re: NAC High Dose But No Effect

I've been taking NAC off and on for almost two years. I started about two summers ago when I had a horrible bronchial infection. I had read about NAC's effects on clearing the lungs, and I do believe it helped, though I might have taken it too late in the sickness. I continued to take it, alternating between 1 gram a day and 500mg, because I didn't want to backslide into sickness. Then in the winter I decided to stop taking it since I take so many things anyway. Almost immediately I felt a dip in mood. After about a week of this, I decided to resume the NAC, and my mood ticked up a bit. The effect feels, for lack of a better word, tingly. Like a sort of low grade, comfortable tingle that's not quite a buzz but a little electric. I feel like it just supports me a bit. Around the same time I noticed broken capillaries on my face and wondered if the long-term use of NAC was leeching my body of minerals, since it can affect zinc levels, so I switched to a reduced glutathione product that wasn't quite as strong as the NAC but I didn't feel the dip when I switched. Now I take 500mg of NAC a day and a little extra cysteine and Vitamin C. I may try to come off again to see if I notice anything.
