In brief: Glutathione

The reason for taking nac is to raise the glutathione levels in the body.
Why not oral glutathione? Glutathione is too large of a molecule to enter through the GI tract, it's also difficult to get through the skin as well. Glutathione is one of the most powerful antioxidants produced in the body. It is vital in both phases of liver detoxification, and reduces risk of dementia and parkinson's.
