COSEQUIN ASU FOR HORSES
Broad Spectrum Joint Support
Cosequin ASU combines Nutramaxx's proprietary glucosamine hydrochloride and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate with an innovative supplement agent, ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables), and MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). Nutramax Laboratories has reinvented the science of equine joint health with its newest product, Cosequin ASU.
“Our research has shown that the combination of ASU plus glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate performs, in vitro, superior to the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate alone,” said Carmelita G. Frondoza, Ph.D., director of research and development, Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. “Cosequin ASU is a dual synergistic formula with glucosamine interacting synergistically with both chondroitin sulfate and ASU.” MSM is included as it is a source of sulfur, a compound used by cartilage.
“The science behind Cosequin ASU is a major factor differentiating it from the competition,” said Barbara Eves, DVM, senior manager of scientific communications. “The inclusion of ASU with our researched glucosamine and low molecular weight chondroitin sulfate sets this product apart from other joint health supplements and establishes a new benchmark of joint health support. Additionally, MSM is included at 10,000 mg/day for an average sized horse. Practicing veterinarians and their clients’ horses will both benefit from Cosequin ASU.”
Cosequin ASU is supplied in a 1300 gram container of tasty powder.
