FDA Wants to Ban Another Natural Supplement with Success in Treating Symptoms of COVID-19

Why the FDA is Attacking NAC Supplements Alliance for Natural Health

Via Health Impact News

Excerpts:

N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) has been on the market as a supplement for decades—why is the FDA attacking it now?

A few weeks ago, we told you about the FDA’s recent actions threatening NAC supplements—products which the FDA has allowed on the market for decades.

The question is, why now, after all these years, is the FDA doing this?

Digging a bit deeper, it seems obvious that the FDA is clearing the market of affordable NAC supplements in an effort to eliminate competition for NAC drugs that could be coming to market in the next few years.

If our suspicions are correct, this would be another outrageous example of the FDA doing Big Pharma’s dirty work.

To briefly recap how we got here: In a slew of warning letters sent last year, the FDA targeted a number of supplement companies marketing “unapproved” cures for hangovers—which the agency absurdly considers to be a “disease.”

Some of these products contain NAC. In the letters to those companies, the FDA states that NAC does not meet the legal definition of a supplement because it was approved as a drug in 1963; according to federal law, any substance approved as a drug before it was sold as a supplement cannot be sold as a supplement. All of this means that the status of NAC as a supplement is currently in dispute.

So, why is the FDA threatening NAC now, during a pandemic when a new FDA commissioner hasn’t even been appointed? For starters, a drug company is investigating NAC as a treatment for a rare genetic disorder that damages the myelin sheath, which insulates nerve cells in the brain. The Phase 1 trial was completed in March 2020.

But that’s just the beginning. A search through the government’s clinical trials database shows considerable interest from the pharmaceutical industry in NAC. There are 17 trials looking at NAC, in both drug and supplement form, in the treatment of COVID.

Additionally, there are over 50 trials looking at NAC for a variety of other conditions, including: autism spectrum disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, alcohol abuse disorder, rhinosinusitis, bronchiolitis, cardiac arrhythmia, and more.

Note that NAC drugs are currently available in generic form since it is off-patent, but a company could bring a new branded NAC drug to market if it was proven effective for an additional indication.

Given these facts, it seems reasonable to assume that the FDA is setting the stage for a new NAC drug to come to market by removing the competition from much cheaper NAC supplements.

We called it when the FDA pulled a similar move a few years back when they went after brain health supplements, trying to clear the market for a new Alzheimer’s drug—culminating in the recent approval of an Alzheimer’s treatment that many experts think is not effective.

CBD supplements may face a similar fate if Congress does not force the FDA’s hand by legalizing CBD in dietary supplements.

It is critically important to maintain access to affordable NAC supplements.

In a recent interview with the Life Extension Foundation, Dr. Daniel Amen noted that NAC “has shown promising results in people with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, OCD, and addictions.

It can also decrease inflammation and may help delay brain atrophy in Alzheimer’s disease.” NAC protects the body from toxins, is a selective immune system enhancer, and helps remove free radicals, which contribute to neurogenerative diseases and aging. In Europe, NAC is a prescription medicine used to reduce congestion.

NAC is also a precursor to glutathione, one of the body’s most important antioxidants. Glutathione plays crucial roles in nutrient metabolism and the regulation of many cellular events (such as gene expression, protein synthesis, cell proliferation, and more); glutathione deficiency contributes to oxidative stress, which is implicated in the development of many diseases: Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, liver disease, HIV, heart attack, cancer, stroke, and diabetes.

Note that acetaminophen depletes glutathione, so those who regularly take it should consider, in consultation with an integrative doctor, supplementing with NAC to replenish glutathione levels. In fact, NAC is routinely used in hospitals to counteract acetaminophen toxicity.

NAC is far too important to be threatened by the FDA, especially under such dubious circumstances.

      An alphabet agency is crooked? People that talk about these agencies include all of them and they have been infiltrated by cartels and cabals all the ways up to the top. The constitution says from time to time it will be necessary to remove tyrannical government and replace it. Prohibitions are just the start of the problems we and every other government on the face of the planet should be fighting. This covid scam has gone beyond unconstitutional, it has become violations of human rights internationally.

      CDC confesses to COVID-19 “vaccines” being a medical HOAX :mad: vaxxed individuals shown to have HIGHER viral loads and can be $UPER – SPREADERS

      Thursday, July 29, 2021

      (Natural News) Many people seem to have missed it, but the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) MADE A POWERFUL ADMISSION THIS WEEK that completely upends everything we have been told for the past several months about Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines.”

      In a shocking announcement, the CDC actually CONFESSED to the fact that the Trump VACCINES it has been aggressively pushing as the final solution to the Chinese Virus WERE NOTHING BUT A MEDICAL HOAX……providing no protection against infection or spread. :idea:

      After BAITING MILLIONS of people INTO GETTING JABBED on the promise that life would return back to “normal” if they did, the CDC now admits that being “FULLY VACCINATED” does not actually fight the “delta variant,” but instead CONTRIBUTES TO MORE INFECTIONS.
      Because of this, the CDC now wants ALL INJECTED PEOPLE to PUT BACK ON their MASKS just like before they were vaccinated.

      Fauci FLU $HOT$, the CDC now admits, ARE more SYMBOLIC than anything else :!:
      PEOPLE WHO REFUSE to get them ARE just AS safe and PROTECTED against Chinese Germs AS THOSE WHO DID, is the short of it.
      So much for “science.” :lol:

      “In areas with substantial and high transmission,” announced CDC head Rochelle Walensky, vaccinated people should mask up to “help prevent the spread of the delta variant and protect others.”
      In other words, just because you got vaccinated does not mean that you are immune from killing grandma, according to Walensky.

      The MEDICAL ESTABLISHMENT IS A DEATH CULT :twisted:

      That pig Dick Durbin slipped into the “Infrastructure” bill legislation that would eliminate people being able to buy supplements without a prescription……..obviously he is working for Big Pharma…that bill needs to be stopped….

      Row row row your boat gently down the stream; Merrily merrily, merrily merrily life is not what it seems.

    • BalanceBlind

      Do these supplements even work? I think that nothing will change, people just won’t waste their money.

    • LucyaSmit

      Trust me, they work. And many people can tell you the same. It’s not a waste of money, and I can tell you why. I used to go to the gym, but my metabolism wasn’t really fast, so I wasn’t losing weight. When I started using a supplement from this website, I noticed the progress and started to experience smoother digestive comfort.
