Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I kind of accidently bumped into this. It's suposed to work like NAC in raising GSH, but it's a lot stronger. (at least this is what the producers claim.....)
    It's for sale on this website http://www.cellgevity4life.com/cellgevity.html (at a high cost.)
    Has anyone ever tried one of these products? Or ever heard of it?
    I found one positive testimonial one the internet

    "D-ribose-l-cysteine" doesn't yield a lot of results on pubmed, altough it's used to raise GSH (succesfully) in animal studies.

    never heard of it but many supp company's combine ingredients etc as a marketing tool, not saying it doesnt work but is it better then buying nac and ribose seperately and using them both?

    It's D-ribose-l-cysteine in one molecule, not separate. (I guess)

    There are a few studies on PubMed, but I don't think it's anymore effective than NAC.
