> Tonight I feel less negative about the world than usual. Don't know exactly if it has anything to do with N-acetyl-cysteine, but I've noticed the last few days I am more realistic about things, not feeling on top of the world, but not feeling so negative either. I am bipolar, so it could be a passing phase. Who knows for sure? Also, I've started writing my poetry again, and I only do that when I'm feeling pretty good. I am going to continue to stay on the NAC for now because I haven't had any bad side effects at this point. Will update my progress as the days and weeks pass.


Hi there, I encourage you to do further research about N-Acetyl Cysteine, as apparently it has a very positive impact on many body organs, and especially is good for liver, kidney & lung health.

I've taken NAC for two years now, but have never noticed any impact upon mood, but obviously credible scientific research is showing that it is very helpful for many people.

When I initially researched the amino acid Cysteine, I learned that the body can absorb only a certain (smallish) amount of N-Aceytl Cysteine at any one time.

Maybe there has been new research in the meantime, but not that I'm aware of; anyway, I decided to take the TIME-RELEASE form of NAC, to ensure that I was getting a steady stream of this remarkable substance, and since the body evidentally can only use a small amount at any one time, and simply excretes the overage, I decided that the most economical form of NAC would be the time released tablets.

I haven't seen any research about the use of Acetyl L-Carnitine for bipolar, but everyone I know who takes a gram or two first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, all of them claim that they are quickly in a calm alert positive frame of mind. Evidentally, the Acetyl L-Carnitine increases the brain levels of acetyl choline, and that MIGHT be the reason for the positive frame of mind.
