    I tried NAC briefly a while back but didn't notice any positive effects; in fact, I started deteriorating, but then realised that I had been unknowingly consuming extra carbs, and am improving again after reducing these again. I'm very much in two minds about restarting the NAC, partly due to reading that it increases H2S, and that H2S is thought to be one of the things that damages our mitochondria.

    Has anyone here looked into this?

    NAC can do far worse. It can cause too much glutathione to form, flushing MeCbl and AdoCbl in circulation, and probably HyCbl as well and likely others, out of the body with such completeness that it can cause methyltrap and increasing L-methylfolate symptoms, making a person feel worse and worse.

    I've done well with NAC in the past, but have stomach issues that prevents me from taking it.
