glutathione and Acetylcysteine have been shown to regulate body fat and induce weight loss. The lady who "packed on 40 lbs" should have her thyroid checked out, that could be her real problem.

We give this to our 11 year old to help control tics/Tourette Syndrome. It has been very helpful in reducing the number and severity of her tics. We can definitely tell when she has forgotten to take it.
