Cosamin works at the cellular level to help promote joint comfort. Laboratory research demonstrates that the ingredients in Cosamin ASU contribute to a number of actions that benefit joint health.
Cosamin ASU contains patented combinations of our trademarked ingredients to help promote joint comfort.†
Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables (ASU)
- ASU is obtained from avocados and soybeans. ASU is an ingredient shown in published laboratory research to inhibit components associated with cartilage breakdown. ASU complements the positive effects of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate.
Glucosamine HCl and Chondroitin Sulfate - The combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage in the joints. Clinical research demonstrates that glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate can help promote joint comfort. Together, these ingredients have been shown in laboratory studies to protect joint cartilage better than either ingredient alone.†
AKBA from Boswellia serrata - The herbal extract of Boswellia serrata contains AKBA which is used to help promote joint health. It is an ingredient that has been scientifically researched to be faster acting than glucosamine alone.
These active ingredients in Cosamin ASU work together to decrease certain markers associated with cartilage breakdown and joint discomfort.
Cartilage covers the surface of bones within the joint, serving as a smooth, resilient cushion that allows them to keep moving freely. Many types of stresses, both physical and biological, can cause increased production of proteins and chemicals associated with cartilage breakdown and reduced joint comfort. A delicate balance of breakdown and replacement of the structural parts of cartilage helps maintain a normal joint. Cosamin® is shown to work at the cellular level to help protect cartilage.
