Now, there may be some viable alternative therapies that are targeting psychiatric disorders from a more organic angle.
N-Acetyl Cysteine, NAC, is an amino acid that has been used to treat acetaminophen poisoning or reduce mucus that plagues certain lung diseases as well as cystic fibrosis.
NAC has also shown in clinical trials to help reduce symptoms of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders.
NAC has antioxidant properties to help address the inflammatory and oxidative damage that stunts cell reactivation and neuron growth. Studies have shown that mood disorder symptoms, such as apathy and depression, have been reduced and NAC was even shown to lessen cravings for cocaine, nicotine, and marijuana.
