Geez, Scott, you seem to always get the sharp end of the stick. Sorry to hear that.

NAC is part of my daily supplement routine. It's a precursor to the antioxidant glutathione, but it can reduce oxidative free radicals on its own.

It's given to acetominiphen/paracetamol overdose patients because one molecule of glutathione is destroyed for every molecule of the analgesic metabolized. If liver glutathione levels fall below a critical level, the cells die (apoptosis).

Glutathione is also a critical antioxidant in the brain, so it stands to reason the brain will work better if it is well supplied with glutathione (when compared to a deficiency, which could arise from chronic psychic stress).

Even if no positive effect is noted, it can't hurt.

Sorry again, to learn that not all of us have neutral to positive results.

Lar
