New! One of the most exciting recent developments in supplements to counteract senescence or biological aging has been a series of studies about the effects of a combination of NAC and Glycine — not only on mice, but on older men and women.

Product Notes:

Though there has yet to be a health product licensed for sale in Canada using the 'GlyNAC' name featured in recent studies, you can now get an equivalent combination in a natural peach ginger flavour powdered form from Pure Encapsulations (or Glycine & NAC capsules from NOW).

If antioxidants were a league of super heroes, glutathione would be its Superman, for being able to help protect every single cell in the body (both on its own and by helping the other antioxidants get used more) from free radicals, in addition to supporting the immune system and combating the effects of aging in other ways, such as by assisting in nutrient metabolism, energy production, detoxification, and more.

Unfortunately, our bodies don't generate nearly as much glutathione after the age of 45 or so, which leaves us more vulnerable. And while it can be taken as a supplement, it turns out it can be far more effective to furnish the body with the first two of its three main building blocks (glycine, L-cysteine, and L-glutamate) to enable it to be produced right within the cells from scratch, as needed, rather than transported into them whole - not only because the supplemental forms tend to be unstable and difficult to absorb, but also because too much glutathione can end up backfiring and lead to accelerated aging (due to a phenomenon known as reductive stress).

That's where NAC + Glycine powder comes in. Studies have shown that a combination of those two precursors of GSH (Glycine and N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine) in a one-to-one ratio can significantly improve GSH deficiency, oxidative stress levels, mitochondrial impairment, inflammation, insulin resistance, physical strength, exercise capacity, and several other hallmarks of aging, in older adults -- without interfering with the delicate balance between the 'healthy' levels of oxidants that cells produce to improve their signaling and efficiency, and glutathione's ongoing efforts to reduce excessive levels within those cells.

'GlyNAC' is licensed in the USA by Nestlé from Baylor College of Medicine. A potential release date for their product in Canada is not known at this time.
