Cosamin®ASU Named Preferred Joint Health Supplement in FrameWork for the Knee by Dr. Nick DiNubile


Edgewood, MD – October 20, 2010 – Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. today announced premium joint health supplement Cosamin®ASU was recommended in Dr. Nick DiNubile’s new book, FrameWork for the Knee, (Rodale 2010).

“Not only do I take Cosamin ASU myself,” states Dr. DiNubile, “I also recommend Cosamin ASU to my patients who have joint issues and who have had cartilage regeneration type of surgery such as microfracture or chondrocyte transplantation.”

“In FrameWork for the Knee, Dr. DiNubile continues to stress the importance of exercise, nutrition, and the mind in maintaining health,” added Dr. Troy Henderson, Vice President of Corporate Operations and Professional Services at Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. “Physicians repeatedly recommended Cosamin products because of their high quality ingredients and Nutramax Laboratories, Inc.’s strict adherence to GMP manufacturing processes.”

Cosamin ASU is a dual synergistic formula: its specific combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate has demonstrated synergy in stimulating cartilage production, while ASU also acts synergistically with glucosamine. 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 inflammatory markers.
