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 OptiMSM® Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). Avoca ASU also contains green tea extract. All ingredients are from non-animal origin.

How does Avoca ASU, our vegetarian, shellfish-free joint health supplement work?*

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, obtained from avocados and soybeans and used to help support joint health. Studies using cartilage cells have shown that ASU lowers the production of several components involved in the process of cartilage breakdown.* 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 extract.
