N-acetyl-glucosamine (NAG) is a form of glucosamine, one of the building
blocks of joint tissue and other connective tissues. NAG differs from
glucosamine sulfate and glucosamine hydrochloride; instead of a sulfur or
chloride molecule, NAG has a larger, more complex molecule attached to it. As a
result, NAG is an entirely different molecule than either glucosamine sulfate or
hydrochloride, and it also appears to be handled by the body differently.
