Recently I was reading about role of NAC as a mucolytic agent for cough & cold, and learned that:
- NAC is also a good antioxidant,
- that it can prevent cytokine storm & inflammation,
- additionally, it also can break down the clots or prevent them from forming which is the biggest danger of covid19.
- NAC replenishes glutathione stores and helps reduce the viral load.
- high dose IV NAC is also reported to have had good results for seriously ill patients.
so I feel, NAC must be included as standard of care for covid patients along with vit c, d3, zinc & b complex supplements etc.
