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.

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.
