N-Acetyl-Glucosamine is a simple amino sugar, a monosaccharide with an amino group as part of its structure. NAG is a nutrient, an intermediary metabolite, and a component of the glycocalyx coat carried by all the body’s cells. The glycocalyx is a layer of carbohydrates and proteins complexed together, sometimes also with lipid components, and anchored in the outer cell membrane. As a major contributor to the glycocalyx, NAG is involved in cell-to-cell attachment, contributes to the cell surface antigen patterns, and augments receptor functions.* Although located on the cell’s exterior surface, NAG is important for cell function.
