On today’s Dr. Oz Show, Dr. Oz talked about different sickness and illnesses that people usually get prescription medications for and offered alternatives. One of these illnesses is the common cold…something I get at least once per year! Instead of heading to the doctor, try taking NAC.
What is NAC According to Dr. Oz?
Dr Oz says to help get rid of colds, try 250 mg of N-A-C supplement per day. This will break down the mucus to help you breath better.

Now What Really is NAC for Colds?
N-acetyl cysteine comes from the amino acid L-cysteine. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. N-acetyl cysteine has many uses as medicine.
N-acetyl cysteine is used to counteract acetaminophen (Tylenol) and carbon monoxide poisoning. It is also used for chest pain (unstable angina), bile duct blockage in infants, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease), Alzheimer’s disease, allergic reactions to the anti-seizure drug phenytoin (Dilantin), and an eye infection called keratoconjunctivitis. It is also used for reducing levels of a type of cholesterol called lipoprotein (a), homocysteine levels (a possible risk factor for heart disease) and the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients with serious kidney disease.
Where to Buy NAC?
I found it here for just $10.50. It’s more than he recommended, but looks like the manufacturer recommends more.
