What is Cosamin®ASU?
Brought to you by the makers of Cosamin® DS, Cosamin® ASU Joint Health Supplement contains the patented combination of glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU). ASU works with the glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate in Cosamin ASU to help promote joint comfort. It is our most complete and comprehensive joint support formula.*
How does Cosamin®ASU work?
Our research has shown that the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate inhibit expression of several markers involved in cartilage breakdown. In laboratory cell culture studies of markers associated with both joint discomfort and cartilage breakdown the combination of glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, and ASU (as found in Cosamin ASU) was better at reducing these markers compared to glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate alone (see chart below).
▲Based on published studies in U.S. peer-reviewed journals, Cosamin is the most researched glucosamine/chondroitin brand.
▽ In laboratory cell culture studies of markers associated with 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.
‡ Cosamin® ASU contains Glucosamine, Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate and NMX1000® Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables, Nutramax Laboratories® exclusive proprietary researched specifications.
