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.
