- Respiratory diseases with mucilage
- acute bronchitis
- Cystic Fibrosis

Mode of action of acetylcysteine
Acetylcysteine is a chemical slime dissolving means and provides for the reduction of bridge bindings in the mucus. A variety of these bridges (so called disulfide bridges) in the fluid creates a dense mesh network that makes the mucus as tough. Resolve these bridges, the mucus is liquefied and can thus be removed better by coughing.
Acetylcysteine has still a very different effect: certain parts of Acetylcysteins, so called SH-groups that can detoxify the body by they catch so called free radicals. And: acetylcysteine is a precursor of glutathione. This substance in turn is part of the body’s detoxification system. Also on this route, acetylcysteine intercepts free radicals and supports the body’s natural defense system.
Acetylcysteine can be used also to the detoxification of overdosing of various active ingredients. In the Elimination of acetylcysteine, cysteine is created. This in turn inhibits the breakdown of acetaminophen to liver-damaging substances. Acrylonitrile, Methyacrylnitril and methyl bromide are integrated on the SH groups at the acetylcysteine and can be detoxified by the fact.
