N-ACETYLGLUCOSAMINE

N-Acetylglucosamine is found in the brain, thyroid, liver, small intestine, testes, epithelial cells of the endocrine and sebaceous glands, and endothelial cells of blood vessels. It is presumed that it plays a crucial role in all these tissues and organs. This essential saccharide is an immune modulator with antitumor properties and activity against HIV.

JOINT PAIN AND INFLAMMATION

Glucosamine, a metabolic product of N-Acetylglucosamine, helps repair cartilage, decreases pain and inflammation, and increases range of motion in osteoarthritis.

MUCOSAL-LINING

Glucosamine, a metobolic product of N-Acetylglucosamine, may help repair the mucosal-lining defensive barrier called the glycosaminoglycan layer, or GAG layer for short. Defects in the GAG layer have been implicated in Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and interstitial cystitis.
