N-acetyl cysteine online supplier?

Postby McBlaue » Tue Apr 11, 2006 6:46 pm

I'm having trouble locating NAC in Australia....my chemist can only find Parvolex amps and an inhaler called Mucomist, and I can't seem to find it elsewhere.

Can anyone recommend an online supplier where I may be able to purchase it?

I get mine from iHerb, an online retailer in the USA. For AUD orders, they require the first order to have a copy of your VISA bill beforehand.

THIS POST WAS MODIFIED BY THE POSTER ON 13 APRIL 2006

Hi, I use IHerb, too, just because it's so convenient to get just about everything at the same time and then they ship free if you hit a certain dollar amount. I hesitate to recommend you to the CPn Help site, but I posted a ten percent discount code over there under the Save on Supplements discussion. I'm truly too tired to go hunting for it now, but can send it to you tomorrow if you can't find it over on CPn Help(dot)org by doing a quick search for 'supplements save discount code". I think you get ten percent off on your first purchase, regardless, though. Best of luck as you start. The supplements alone will make you feel better; boatloads of antioxidants on the list. (I was a 'who needs vitamins' type before the MS hit so hard. I'm a convert now, though.)

The 10% discount code is " feb2006 " and it was still working late in March.

Many thanks....I found this site too that looks pretty good: http://www.puritan.com/....I got scared off by the $40 shipping fee at iHerb. If anything of note happens I will post it here.

I'm the same: I always scoffed at people taking all these vitamins and supplements, but after a few weeks taking slippery elm (B12), brewers yeast (B), C, E and gingko I have noticed a real difference, especially in my fatigue levels.

I looked at the above site quickly and couldnt find what they DO charge for international orders. Let us all know how you go.

I also looked for some other products from their line. What I did notice is that their sublingual b12 was cyclo something not the methyl something that people have said is more bio-available.

Cyanocobalimin which is the normal one used for injections. Methylcobalimin is newer and far more preferable due to its ready bioavailability. What I do here in the UK is order a lot of different things from iherb for several different people, then share them out. The amount ordered then gives me their best discount which more than cancels out any import duties. You both live in Sydney, so why don't you get together on this?

Just for the record my order arrived a-ok today so this supplier is good and reliable, arrived a month in Aus after order.

I'll start today and put a full description of my symptoms, reactions, progress etc. in the regimes section. Here's fingers crossed and looking forward to it!
