The results of this study provide proof-of-concept that GlyNAC supplementation improves age-associated cognitive decline and supports brain health in aging by improving/correcting brain GSH deficiency, elevated OxS, mitochondrial dysfunction, abnormal mitophagy and autophagy, inflammation, impaired glucose transport/uptake, elevated genomic damage, and reversing the decline in brain neurotrophic growth factors. GlyNAC could be a simple and effective nutritional supplement to support brain health and cognitive function in aging, and warrants additional investigation.
