Today I would like to talk about one of the most widespread metropolitan legends about biofilms and their sworn enemy: Ausilium NAC.
What is Ausilium NAC
We have talked for a long time about this product which, in my humble opinion, is “simply” a revolutionary food supplement for all those who have been suffering from recurrent cystitis.
Ausilium NAC is a logical right combination of several substances that have the same objective => eliminate biofilms and “persistent cells” to permanently get rid of cystitis.
Ausilium Nac and its ingredients
N-Acetylcysteine (NAC): the only substance capable of “melting” this kind of mucus that forms the external “shell” of biofilms to “undress” the pathogenic bacteria and yeasts contained inside.
D-Mannose: a simple sugar that will saturate the lectins of pathogenic bacteria and prevent them from adhering to the bladder wall once they are released by the biofilms. Then it expels them with the urinary flow.
Lactoferrin (nothing to do with milk or lactose): a protein that deprives yeast of their food and prevents their growth.
Morinda citrifolia: to give a substantial boost to the immune defenses and act against inflammation of the bladder mucosa.
Thanks to the use of this product it is possible:
- the disrution of the protective “layer” (called the “polysaccharide matrix”) of the biofilms
- the inhibition of pathogenic bacteria and growth of pathogenic yeasts + strengthened immune system => to stop a possible bacterial or fungal infection due to the release of “persistent cells” during the disruption of biofilms
- to calm the inflammation => to reduce all the unpleasant symptoms of cystitis (urinary frequency and urgency, pain, burning, bladder heaviness, etc.)
So what about the metropolitan legend in all this?
The famous “risk of acute episode” due to the intake of Ausilium NAC.
At the origin of this fear, there is surely a lack of information and knowledge in this regard.
Those who want to reproduce the composition of Ausilium NAC “at home” (improvising themselves chemistry instead of buying a ready-made product, spending twice as much on active ingredients without knowing how to associate them correctly), runs the risk of making certain mistakes such as:
- forgetting ingredients because they don’t know what they are for (Morinda citrifolia? What for?)
- great differences in the quality or bioavailability of the substances used
The risks of an incorrect dose
These mistakes, especially the last one, are precisely the reason for the crisis that is about to come: if NAC is taken in too large amounts compared to D-Mannose or if it reaches the bladder too quickly or if the D-Mannose chosen does not arrive or arrives too late to the bladder… In short, a lot of parameters that will cause biofilms “to melt” without correctly managing the persistent cells released:
– disruption of the “shell” => bacterial load released => cystitis with hematuria, discomfort and pain, etc.
Also when it is said that Ausilium NAC “causes cystitis” there is another lack of knowledge. This might happen if the mechanisms of cystitis and its causes are unknown and not properly managed.
If we don’t know why cystitis appears, it is difficult to protect ourselves with concrete preventive methods.
The crises that occur a few days after taking Ausilium NAC, and that have nothing to do with this product, will be immediately “misinterpreted”. In reality, cystitis it is not due to the product, but to a specific fact that will have gone unnoticed.
Moral of the story:
- it is NAC (N-acetylcysteine) that eventually causes cystitis and not Ausilium NAC itself.
- cystitis must always be “understood” and its causes investigated in order to be managed properly
I hope that this new article helps to avoid unnecessary fear and put an end to this metropolitan legend that slows down the mechanisms for exiting the tunnel of recurrent cystitis once and for all.
