Supports Joints and Intestinal Function. N-Acetyl Glucosamine. Salt Free. Gluten Free. N-Acetyl Glucosamine is an aminosaccharide synthesized from glucose and the amino acid L-glutamine that has been stabilized by complexing it to an acetyl group. 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.
"I have use this product for several years. It is a good product however I wish Jarrow had other delivery options such as vegetable capsules or fish gelatin capsules. Without knowing, I must conclude that the gelatin is made from beef which I avoid. I am forced to open the capsules and empty the contents into a small cup or directly into my mouth."
"The quality of Jarrow products is excellent. So is this product. Unfortunately the claim that NAG 'Supports Joints and Intestinal Function' is not true. At least not for me. It has no noticeable effect. Therefore an overall rating of one star."
"I am using it as a part of Glutahione precursor system. N-A-C + N-A-G + Vitamin C+ Alpha lipoic+Quercetin and Milk thistle and few other..... this is a formula that will help the body make glutahione from inside the cell as opposed to taking reduced Glutathione orally which does not do the job as well."
