Did the FDA Ban a Popular Supplement?

From eNewsletter 6/9/2021

DID YOU KNOW that the FDA recently sent warning letters to several companies instructing them not to market dietary supplements containing N-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC)? This prompted several major distribution outlets, including Amazon, to remove it from their websites. There has been much confusion over the FDA's stance, so we will clear it up for you. NAC has been used safely as a dietary supplement for decades. It is a precursor to glutathione. The FDA has not removed it from the market, as they do not have the authority to do so. Simply, they can warn retailers not to market NAC as a dietary supplement, meaning retailers can carry it, but not promote it or have it listed on their website. The Council for Responsible Nutrition is already petitioning the FDA's stance and has 180 days to respond to the petition. NAC has not been pulled from the market and is available. It is just more difficult to procure it because many distribution outlets are not listing it on their websites. So you may have to call, email, text, or chat with the company you procure it from.
