    When you read through some of this, it seems that while the suggested supplement dose is about 350 mg, for specific conditions some may use up to about 9,000 mg. Also, most people will get some in their diet. On the other hand, Magnesium and the Brain: The Original Chill Pill says:
    So, it does leave one to wonder how much is truly too much, and over what period of time?

    I'm not familiar enough with the methylation work to comment but I wouldn't be surprised.

    It certainly does however increase glutathione markedly short term which is why its used as the first line treatment for paracetamol overdose.

    Yes, there are better ways to raise glutathione than taking NAC or glutathione. Methylation is one of the best ways although it might take awhile for some people to see results. An equally good method for raising glutathione would be to improve mitochondrial function, the Krebs Cycle, and ATP. Many B vitamins are involved in Krebs and some also help recycle glutathione. Both methods actually go hand in hand and compliment each other so it might be good to focus on both.
