N-Acetyl Glucosamine is the body’s precursor to hyaluronic acid, which is part of the synovial fluid that lubricates joints.* N-A-G combines with mucin secreted from goblet cells to form the glycocalyx, a protective layer of glycoproteins and polysaccharides that lines the digestive tract.*
N-Acetyl Glucosamine is the versatile form of glucosamine for joint and intestinal tissue.*

N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) is wonderful for healing the mucosal lining and intestinal wall. If you’re already taking MucosaHeal, you don’t need to take NAG, because MucosaHeal already contains NAG – unless you want to supplement at a higher dose.I did know a naturopathic doctor who swore by NAG and used it as one of the principle supplements to help his patients wean off steroids.
