N-Acetyl-Glucosamine

N-Acetyl-Glucosamine: Main Image

N-acetyl-glucosamine (NAG) is a form of glucosamine, one of the building blocks of joint tissue and other connective tissues. NAG differs from glucosamine sulphate and glucosamine hydrochloride; instead of a sulphur or chloride molecule, NAG has a larger, more complex molecule attached to it. As a result, NAG is an entirely different molecule than either glucosamine sulphate or hydrochloride, and it also appears to be handled by the body differently.
