WHAT IS PharmaNAC? PharmaNAC is an advanced immune system booster and the only preparation of its kind available in North America. N-acetylcysteine or “NAC” for short, is a derivative of the amino acid L-cysteine, which is an essential precursor used by the body to produce glutathione. Glutathione is an extremely important and powerful antioxidant produced by the body to help protect against free radical damage, and is a critical factor in supporting a healthy immune system. PharmaNAC:Certified European GMP grade NAC Effective way to help boost glutathione levels. Effervescent, quick-dissolving tablets allow NAC to enter cells readily ensuring rapid absorption. Quality controlled according to pharmaceutical guidelines. Compliant to the standards of European Pharmacopoeia and United States Pharmacopoeia. High quality, extremely stable, great tasting and odorless NAC. Individually wrapped tablets in a special 4-layer (paper/plastic/foil plastic) air-tight material to prevent moisture and air from destabilizing and degrading the NAC; a major problem with most other over the counter (OTC) NAC products bottled in capsule form.

Quality Alert: NAC is an antioxidant that must be processed in an extremely dry environment with extremely limited exposure to air. If it becomes oxidized to any degree, then it becomes destabilized and therapeutically ineffective. Unfortunately, some OTC NAC supplements sold on the market today are not manufactured under such strictly controlled environments due to the enormous associated control costs. As a result, these products often have little or no active NAC in them, despite labeling to the contrary. This is precisely why BioAdvantex takes great care in diligently manufacturing PharmaNAC according to strict pharmaceutical standards. Special care is required to ensure that the components of each PharmaNAC tablet do not react during manufacture or within the compressed tablet following manufacture. In fact, each PharmaNAC tablet is individually wrapped in a special 4-layer (paper/plastic/foil plastic) air-tight material to prevent moisture and air from destabilizing and degrading the NAC (unlike other NAC products that loosely package numerous quantities of NAC capsules in a plastic bottle openly exposed to air). Our European GMP-compliant manufacturing process secures consistent quality, content uniformity, and stability in each and every 900mg effervescent tablet. Advantages of quick dissolving effervescent tablets versus traditional pills, capsules, and tablets: Better and quicker absorption: With conventional solid tablets or vegetable capsules, the compounds often dissolve slowly in the stomach, which frequently delays or reduces absorption. Effervescent tablets on the other hand dissolve quickly and easily in a glass of water, and the active ingredients are immediately absorbed, completely and uniformly, upon drinking. Optimal compatibility: After swallowing, conventional solid tablets or capsules are transported to the stomach where they dissolve gradually. The passage takes variably long in different people, depending on anatomical and physiological factors. In case of a longer passage of time, solid dosage forms can dissolve partly and can cause irritation of mucous membranes. With a dissolved effervescent tablet, the ingredients are evenly distributed in the solution, so that high, localized concentrations cannot occur. Increase in liquid intake: Daily liquid consumption should be 1.5 – 2 liters in adults. With increased intake required during excessive fluid loss caused by events such as intensive physical activity, diarrhea, or high temperatures in summer. The intake of dissolved effervescent tablets supports this daily liquid consumption requirement.Advantages in case of swallowing problems: Many people have problems swallowing solid tablets or capsules. For these people, effervescent tablets are a good alternative. Simple handling and measuring into exact doses: Effervescent tablets are simply dissolved in a glass of water, soda, or fruit juice and after 60 seconds a palatable solution is ready for drinking. This is a great advantage over having to dissolve granules or powders. Granules and instant powders have to be measured first and then often must be stirred in the glass several times to obtain a uniform solution. With effervescent tablets, the dose is standardized and the liquid quantity is variable allowing for the taste to be adjusted according to individual preferences.
