N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC)
- Addresses multiple hormonal imbalances in PCOS
- Among the best supplements for easing insulin resistance
- Delivered as easy-to-take capsules
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is a powerful antioxidant and semi-essential amino acid. It’s considered semi-essential because your body can produce it from other amino acids, namely methionine and serine. It has been shown to be beneficial in improving pregnancy rate, spontaneous ovulation, and improving menstrual regularity in women with PCOS.
NAC, taken as a supplement, is scientifically validated for easing various PCOS symptoms relating to high testosterone and insulin. It is among the most popular supplements worldwide for naturally treating PCOS.
Insulin resistance is a common issue amongst people with PCOS, which is when the cells in your muscles, fat, and liver don't respond properly to insulin and don't easily process glucose from your blood. Research shows that NAC could help improve insulin resistance, by helping regulate blood sugar levels.
In terms of the liver, NAC has also been shown to assist in helping to improve liver function with those who have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. This is something many with insulin resistance may develop.

Efficacy of NAC for ovulation in PCOS: PMID (27548190)
The results from a systematic review involving eight trials with 910 women that compared the effects of NAC with placebo in women with PCOS were: NAC had a significant improvement in pregnancy and ovulation rates as compared to placebo.
Efficacy of NAC for improving insulin resistance & inflammation: PMID ( 29502477).
In this study, we investigated whether NAC can affect insulin resistance in diet-induced obesity mice. The study found:
• NAC decreases body weight and fat
• NAC improves results on both glucose tolerance and insulin tolerance tests (indicating increased insulin sensitivity)
• NAC reduces adipose tissue (fat) inflammation.
In conclusion, it is likely that NAC can improve insulin resistance and chronic inflammation; however, early consumption of NAC is optimal.
Can NAC be taken with birth control?
Can I take more than once daily?
The dose of NAC used in clinical trials has ranged from about 600 mg to 3,000 mg per day, typically divided into two or three servings. Generally because most customers are taking other products also, only one capsule per day is generally needed.
Why does my NAC smell rotten?
The odour you smell is likely from the sulphur that is part of NAC (N-acetyl-cysteine), this is completely normal and why it is in a capsule and not a powder.
Take 1 capsule with your largest meal. Can be taken twice daily if needed. Only 30 capsules per packet.
Note: When you open your packet you may get a strong unpleasant smell. This is nothing to be concerned about, it is simply because it is derived from sulphur and once consumed you'll get no taste or aftertaste.
