Exposure to air pollutants, household cleaning products, mold and tobacco smoke can lead to a variety of respiratory health problems since you breathe carbon monoxide and various other environmental toxins every second – these are the primary causes of the most common respiratory disorders. Regular contact with free radicals creates inflammation of the air passages which may suppress the immune system and increases your risk of developing respiratory disorders like asthma and other allergic responses, pneumonia, colds & coughs, emphysema and lung cancer. The rise in air pollution has brought a considerable increase in asthma over the last few years. Asthma attacks and other allergy-related conditions are mainly caused by incidental or job-related exposure to toxic materials and other allergens or by psychological stress. The chief symptoms of respiratory ailments are chest pain, wheezing, coughing, and shortness of breath and increased mucous production. Respiratory diseases are potentially serious and life-threatening health conditions and it is advised to consult with your family physician or alternative health care practitioner.

Furthermore seek for effective ways on how to avoid and reduce harmful pollutants also replace all of your toxic household products with environmental friendly non-toxic products and don’t smoke - cigarette smoke is the leading cause of lung cancer.

NAC is n-acetylcysteine, a form of the amino acid cysteine, which is more readily taken up by the cells. It is a precursor in the body to the cellular antioxidant glutathione (GSH), which is produced intracellulary, particularly in the liver. Cells cannot absorb preformed GSH, making preformed glutathione supplements of minimal effectiveness. Intracellular levels of reduced glutathione are best maintained with R(+)-lipoic acid, the natural form of this key antioxidant.
