    The FDA and NAC

Chris mentioned in his last 2 SC2 videos that the FDA might be planning a move on NAC. They have sent out warning letters to supplement makers. What does this mean? It means I am pissed off. It seems they are getting ready to take one more weapon we have against this disease out of our hands and putting it squarely in the hands of big pharma.

    The FDA and NAC

Yep.
Here’s the article I read (from a law firm):

https://www.soperlawfirm.com/blog/the-fdas-drug-exclusion-provision

FDA Invokes the Drug Exclusion Provision with NAC over a 57 Year Old Drug

On July 23, 2020, FDA sent a warning letter to Purple Biosciences LLC about its NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) product. FDA’s letter asserts that the product is illegal because NAC was approved as a drug on September 14, 1963—57 years ago! NAC has been widely sold as a dietary supplement for many years and FDA has had many opportunities to raise concerns, but this is the first time it has raised the issue. Why now? Could it have something to do with CBD, which is also potentially covered by the Drug Exclusion Provision?

The Drug Exclusion Provision is found at 21 U.S.C. § 321(ff)(3)(B), which says that a dietary supplement DOES NOT include:

•an article approved as a new drug under section 355 OR

•an article authorized for investigation as a new drug, antibiotic, or biological

•for which substantial clinical investigations have been instituted, and

•for which the existence of such investigations has been made public,

•which was not before such approval, certification, licensing, or authorization  marketed as a dietary supplement or as a food,

•unless the Secretary, in the Secretary’s discretion, has issued a regulation, after notice and comment, finding that the article would be lawful under this chapter.

    The FDA and NAC

Here’s a thread from Reddit that discussed this 10 days ago for more opinions.

The general consensus seems to think we don’t need to worry about it.

    Hangover cure

I read that FDA was concerned that NAC was being marketed as a hangover cure. Personally, I’ve found it’s an amazing hangover cure! Really works for me and friends. Well, if FDA only makes some companies remove specific claims from their labels and leaves NAC as an over the counter I’ll be happy.

    NAC is a powerful aid against toxic meds

NAC is a powerful molecule that is very protective to human cells. It boost glutathione, which in turn recycles vitamin C. Here’s a primer:

If you go in for a CT or MRI and are going to get dye, ask for an infusion of Vitamin C with NAC as it protects the kidneys from damage. Well known in radiology.

It is the only accepted antidote to the 100% fatal liver complications of an acetaminophen overdose if administered early. Been used for this for years. Even the Communist leaning, KKR owned WebMD admits it.

They don’t want us to have it because it works. Perhaps it counteracts some of the vaccine’s toxic effects? Couldn’t let that happen.

    NAC: hangover cure?

According to this study, NAC is best used as hangover prophylaxis – PREP for hangovers.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1386634605004766

Experiment had mice fed alcohol, and NAC in two different timings:

1) NAC 30 minutes prior to alcohol administration

2) NAC 4 hours after alcohol administration

#1 had a protective effect, while #2 actually ended up causing more damage to the liver.

“… pretreatment with NAC significantly attenuated acute ethanol-induced lipid peroxidation and GSH depletion and inhibited hepatic TNF-α mRNA expression. By contrast, post-treatment with NAC aggravated ethanol-induced hepatic lipid peroxidation and worsened acute ethanol-induced liver damage in a dose-dependent manner.”

So – the mice say: NAC before drinking.  My experience would tend to agree.

Not medical advice!  🙂

@Hohhot

Yeah, there could hardly be a better supplement/tool to counteract the mainly oxidative damage caused by the toxic adjuvants present in almost all vaccines. Glutathione depletion is the #1 event to avoid (in that context and in most disease states and in alcohol overdose), and NAC and selenium are the required precursors. Glutathione itself is orally inactive so you’d have to inject it, which also for many conditions can work wonders btw — check out how it affects someone with Parkinson’s:
