Acetaminophen toxicity


Some of BNHR philosophies and findings presented in book with 650 references


NAC is an effective and safe way to drive cysteine intracellularly for glutathione synthesis (84, 85). The supplementation of NAC has become recognized by more conventional medical practitioners as essential in the battle against liver toxicity as well as a powerful anti-rheumatic therapy.

(86).


In fact, this natural power-packed nutrient is known to be the mightiest hepatodetoxifier, clearing toxicity from the liver induced by man-made chemicals such as acetaminophen (87, 88). That’s right, acetaminophen, found in Tylenol, can be extremely toxic to the liver and kidneys, especially if combined with alcohol.


Manufacturers of ASA and acetaminophen-containing drugs should take responsible action to include an efficacious, glutathione-boosting dose (100 mg) of NAC in their

formulations for your protection. In fact, this inclusion should be mandatory. For now, though, this means we have to take the initiative and supplement NAC in higher doses than average (more than 150 mg per day) when we use acetaminophen or high levels of ASA. However, I can’t see how these over-the-counter drugs will be sold without the inclusion of NAC in the near future; not to add NAC is plain ignorance.
