NAC is a precursor to the amino acid cysteine, which ultimately plays two key metabolic roles. Through its metabolic contribution to glutathione production, cysteine participates in the general antioxidant activities of the body. Through its role as a modulator of the glutamatergic system, cysteine influences the reward-reinforcement pathway. In this way NAC may well offer promise in issues such as OCD hair pulling and nail biting and possibly more prevalent addictive behaviours.
