EGCG and NAC Synergistically Fight Cancer

N-Acetylcysteine (NAC), which is available as an inexpensive supplement, and epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG), which is present in tea, are good as standalone therapies against cancer, but together they are 8.8 time stronger, according to research on mouse cancer cell lines. In other words NAC and EGCG work synergistically to fight cancer even better when used together than when used alone.
