N-Acetyl-Cysteine Sustained Release (NAC)
For me it is 1200-1800 MG to knock out the toxic feelings and cravings around food you describe. I discovered my dose by taking it in one sitting until a Sugar craving would stop.
Now, my Sugar cravings are almost gone from my life, and I find it helps any Herxing (toxicity, toxic feelings).
Take it with electrolytes like Emergen-C Tangerine especially if you are dehydrated. Or, take with some food.
I take my NAC with Bone Health from New Chapter (food based CaMg, D3, K2), Ubiquinol and a little fat these days.
NAC does give you a boost of energy (like it is returning your “lost” energy to you). So, don’t take it after 4 PM until you are used to it.
I believe I stumbled on to it to help stop insatiable Sugar cravings and used it long before I ever truly addressed metal, candida and parasite toxicity.
In other words, it has worked under the worst “circumstances” for me. Other: NAC is also used for alcohol and gambling detox (I guess since that “gotta have it now” feeling is helped by it, but you may actually find some medical evidence for it searching the net that way).
