The researchers recently studied whether NAC use boosts dopamine-related brain function and lessens Parkinson's symptomatology in a larger trial group than the original 23-participant trial. Researchers found that NAC use substantially boosted dopamine transporter binding (whose levels may drop up to 70% in Parkinson's patients) in the putamen and caudate, the main brain areas that control the movement of the body. Moreover, participants who took NAC exhibited a substantial reduction in motor- & non-motor-related symptoms.
The research trials' findings indicate that NAC use by participants with Parkinson's disease leads to boosted dopamine transporter binding, and consequently a reduction in the disease's motor- & non-motor-related symptoms
About N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC)
NAC is an antioxidant precursor of cysteine. The consumption of cysteine and NAC is crucial to everyone's well-being, because they help with the production of glutathione, the most powerful antioxidant inside our bodies.
Dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter, which transmits signals from one neuron to another, and is crucial for muscle movement & coordination. During Parkinson's disease spread, neurons which produce dopamine start dying out, resulting in the gradual reduction of dopamine levels.
