Perhaps this will encourage the FDA to approve NAC as a supplement after taking it off the US market several years ago. My experience with it (in the EU) for decreasing inflammation (and therefore brain fog) from endometriosis has been fantastic, with virtually no side effects.

as someone who experiences intense bouts of brain fog from long covid in addition to suffering from endometriosis for years I’m curious about your experience!!

unfortunately I’m in the US, but I believe we still have access to it!! what dosage did you start at? I’ve heard very little of the supplement, but after dealing with this for 7 months I want better results!

Same as the study - 600mg once a day in the AM, of N-acetyl-cysteine. It was clear after a few days that it made a difference, too.

Mind you, I've had a hysterectomy (kept ovaries) and take letrozole daily to manage symptoms along with following a strict gluten-free and isoflavone-free diet. There were other supplements I took pre-surgery that helped a lot for the endo pain (like DIM & Calcium-d-Gluconate), as I'm not able to take exogenous hormones (like progesterone) due to bad side effects.
