What is ASU and how does it work?
ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables)
is derived from avocados and soybeans. A potent ingredient demonstrated
to protect cartilage which leads to improved joint function, ASU
complements the effects of the other ingredients. While working through
their own primary mechanisms of action, ASU, glucosamine and chondroitin
sulfate together deliver comprehensive joint health support. Our
trademarked glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulfate, and
avocado/soybean unsaponifiables together were shown in cell studies to
be better than the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate at
inhibiting expression of several agents involved in cartilage breakdown.
ASU Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables
Reduces the expression of inflammatory
markers that are associated with joint discomfort and the process of
cartilage breakdown in the joints.^

Shown to Work Better
In laboratory cell culture
studies of inflammatory markers associated with joint discomfort
and cartilage breakdown it was found that the combination of ASU
(avocado/soybean unsaponifiables) + glucosamine + chondroitin
sulfate was BETTER than the combination of glucosamine +
chondroitin sulfate in reducing these markers.
