Cosamin ASU is an advanced proprietary formula that combines avocado and soybean unsaponifiables with glucosamine and pharmaceutical-grade sodium chondroitin sulfate. Unsaponifiables are a compound extracted from avocado and soybean, and they are considered to be one of the more promising remedies for osteoarthritis. Four high-quality clinical trials show that it may help to improve the stiffness and pain of osteoarthritis and also reduce the need for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Cosamin ASU is formulated with a specific combination of glucosamine and sodium chondroitin sulfate that has proven to produce a combined effect greater than when used alone, in stimulating cartilage production. Glucosamine is an easily-absorbed, natural supplement that helps maintain the health and resiliency of joints and their connective tissues. It also helps prevent cartilage degeneration. In osteoarthritis, the cushions that surround each joint becomes stiff and thin, and glucosamine helps supply materials that are necessary to rebuild the cushion.
Green tea is utilized in this formula because of the polyphenols that are found in it. Polyphenols are chemicals with very potent antioxidant properties that appear to be even greater than vitamin C. Antioxidants are important because they scavenge free radicals, which are damaging compounds in the body that can tamper with DNA and also alter cells. Free radicals occur naturally in the body, but environmental toxins raise the levels of these damaging particles, which can contribute to the development of a number of health problems, as well as the aging process. Antioxidants work to neutralize free radicals and have been shown to reduce and help prevent some of the damage they cause.

Love this product! I was having neck pain and was being treated by a chiropractor. After several months of only getting a little better I stopped going to the chiropractor. A friend told me about these pills. Took a while to get in my system but once they did I have felt fine ever since!
