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?

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