After reading the claims and reviewing the actual studies, I decided to try these to see if it improves my asthma and frequency of infections as claimed.
Other reviewers commented on the smell and they are 100% correct! Do NOT smell the contents of the bottle or you'll likely throw them away. (LOL! Trying to maintain acceptable language here)-- It smells like concentrated colon gas after eating a can of beans. Understand? But us old-timers recall old medicines usually tasted nasty and learned how to deal with it. Bite the pill between you teeth, then quickly down it with water. Avoid holding it in your mouth. Hey, it's nowhere nearly as bad as 1950-60's penicillin or the spoonfuls of code liver oil... BLAH!
Update May 2014
An update after using this product for a year and I'm happy to report I am doing MUCH better! Absolutely NO - ZERO upper respiratory tract infections this year and this has NEVER happened to me!!! Even my doctor was impressed. I am not one who eats supplements without doing my homework- checking the valid studies. This one passes the test.
Before starting this I did a lot of research, reading studies by pulmonologists. According to most, all patients with COPD should be on NAC, as it's benefits have been proven. A great resource is nih.gov... just type in the search line: NAC + COPD. They tested subjects with 600mg, then 1200mg. The best results were found in the group taking the higher dose. This brand is 1000mg, which for me is close enough.
BTW, regarding its awful smell- it helps to leave the lid off the bottle for a while.
I should also mention these are huge horse pills. Some may need to break them in half with a pill cutter, as they are not scored.

La dose prescrite dans ce cas est de 200 mg trois fois par jour.
La connaissance du corps médical s'arrête là.
Normal, car la médecine traditionnelle ne s’intéresse pas à la prévention mais à la guérison.
Ce que votre médecin ignore est que ce produit est un antioxydant puissant et un précurseur du glutathion.
Le glutathion détoxifie l'organisme et élimine les métaux lourds, plomb, mercure et d'autres absorbés par le corps par la pollution due aux pesticides alimentaires et atmosphériques. C'est (serait) a priori une bonne solution pour les ravages infligés à la nature, mais qui je pense, doit être cautionnée par des analyses fréquents.
On peut prendre ce produit à fortes doses en permanence, car il n'a pas d'effets secondaires, bien au contraire.
La dose thérapeutique pour la bronchite est de 600 mg par jour. La dose pour un effet à long terme sur la santé est de 1800 à 2000 g par jour, soit deux cellules de l'article ici présenté.
Un produit noble, essentiel et pas cher pour celui qui s'intéresse à l'optimisation de sa santé.
