NAG, N-acetyl glucosamine, is an amino sugar (a building block of mucopolysaccharides). It is formed from L-glutamine and glucose. N-A-G forms the basis of complex molecular structures which are key parts of the connective tissues and mucous membranes of the body - tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone matrix, skin, joint fluid, and intestinal lining.

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.
