What is Avoca ASU®?

Avoca ASU is a vegetarian/shellfish-free joint health supplement that contains non-shellfish glucosamine, NMX1000®** avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU), and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). Avoca ASU also contains decaffeinated green tea for antioxidant health benefits. All ingredients are from non-animal origin.

What role do the glucosamine and ASU in Avoca ASU play?

The glucosamine in Avoca ASU enhances the production of cartilage matrix components that keep cartilage cells healthy and functioning properly. ASU stands for avocado/soybean unsaponifiables, derived from avocados and soybeans and used for joint health. Studies using cartilage cells have shown that ASU lowers the expression of several compounds involved in the process of cartilage breakdown in the joints. ASU complements the positive effects of the glucosamine in Avoca ASU. A greater than additive effect, known as a “synergistic” effect, on cartilage cells was seen using ASU and glucosamine together. Avoca ASU® also contains decaffeinated green tea for antioxidant health benefit effects.
