- Unique form of Glucosamine with anti-inflammatory properties
- Provides better lubrication of joints, reducing pain and stiffness
- May help with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Has benefits for those who suffer from anxiety or hyperactivity
N-Acetyl Glucosamine (N-A-G) is a unique type of glucosamine, which can support improved for joint health and intestinal health.
N-Acetyl Glucosamine is the body’s precursor to hyaluronic acid, which is part of the synovial fluid that lubricates joints. Compared to "normal" glucosamine, N-acetylglucosamine is believed to stimulate the production of hyaluronic acid (a lubricating joint fluid), and thus is much more effective at reducing joint stiffness and pain.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease
N-acetylglucosamine may help reduce the severity and recurrence inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), suggests a 2018 study published in the journal PNAS.
For this study, intestinal tissues taken from people with ulcerative colitis (a typically more serious form of IBD) were exposed to N-acetylglucosamine in the test tube. Doing so inhibited molecules on the surface of intestinal cells, called T-cell receptors, that instigate inflammation.
A 2011 study in the Journal of Biological Chemistry suggested that N-acetylglucosamine can help suppress the excessive immune response associated with multiple sclerosis (MS). As an autoimmune disease, MS is characterized by the progressive destruction of the outer membrane of nerve cells (called the myelin sheath). It has been proposed that, by reducing the persistent autoimmune inflammation, many of the characteristic symptoms of MS can be delayed.
There is a large number of anecdotal reports of N-acetylglucosamine helping with various forms of anxiety and hyperactivity, including those associated with epilepsy and autism. However, few scientific studies have been done in this field.

N-acetylglucosamine may slow blood clotting and enhances the effects of anticoagulants ("blood thinners") like Coumadin (warfarin) and Plavix (clopidogrel). Taking N-acetylglucosamine with either of these drugs can increase the risk of easy bleeding and bruising. Please consult your doctor if you are on blood-thinning medication
For this same reason, you should stop taking N-acetylglucosamine two weeks before scheduled surgery to prevent excessive bleeding.
