Avoca ASU Joint Health Supplement

Vegetarian Formula - Shellfish Free

Avoca ASU is a vegetarian/shellfish-free joint health supplement for people 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.

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.

Joint Cartilage:  Joints are the junction between two or more bones. The ends of the bones are covered with cartilage which serves as a smooth, resilient cushion that allows the joint to move freely. Joints also have a synovial tissue lining that encloses them and secrets a lubricating fluid. The stability of the joint is supported by ligaments that connect bones to bones; and tendons that connect the ends of muscles to bone. Cartilage in the joint is produced and maintained by its own specialized cells. When you do even the simplest of everyday activities, there is tremendous pressure on your joints. The protective cartilage cushion and joint fluid work together like a shock absorber to allow for proper joint flexibility.

There are many factors that lead to cartilage breakdown:

  • Age
  • Excess weight
  • Inactivity or over activity
  • Injury
  • Genetics

Cartilage lacks a direct blood supply. It relies on nutrients found in the joint fluid to nourish cartilage cells and maintain its structure. When this process is affected by one or more of the factors mentioned above, cartilage can break down to the point where it can no longer work efficiently.

The Role of Glucosamine and ASU in Avoca ASU:  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.

The Role of MSM:  OptiMSM is the pure and patented form of MSM (methylsulfonylmethane), that provides sulfur which is used for the structural integrity of joint cartilage.

Suggested Use:

Following the schedule on the label, we recommend three tablets daily for the initial administration period of 4-8 weeks. Some individuals may respond sooner than others depending on the status of their cartilage and joint health. Once response has been seen, the number of tablets per day may be decreased to maintain comfort level. Some individuals on this lower level may wish to go back to three tablets a day during the weekends or times of increased activity.

How Long Before Benefit is Seen?  Avoca ASU is a supplement providing key components to maintain your joint health; therefore, it works gradually. You should observe gradual changes in your comfort level. Give yourself 4 to 8 weeks to respond. Look for subtle changes initially, such as an easier time going up and down stairs or getting out of a chair or bathtub and more comfort in daily activities, such as walking or any activity using your hands, knees, hips or back.

Any Safety Concerns?  There are no known contraindications or known interactions between Avoca ASU and any drug or nutritional supplement. If you have any condition or allergy that requires medical attention, you should always consult your physician before taking any drug or dietary supplement.
