Cosamin - ASU 180 Capsules with Omega Mint Omega 3 Fish Oil 100 Softgels Pack
Cosamin ASU is an advanced proprietary formulation that combines NMX1000 avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU) with Cosamin's FCHG49 glucosamine and pharmaceutical-grade TRH122 sodium chondroitin sulfate. For over a decade, Cosamin DS has served as the premium joint health supplement on the market. By combining the exclusive ingredients found in Cosamin DS with ASU, Nutramax Laboratories, Inc. has made the best even better.
Cosamin ASU is a dual synergistic formula: its specific combination of glucosamine and sodium chondroitin sulfate have demonstrated synergy in stimulating cartilage production,1 while ASU also acts synergistically with glucosamine.
One of their newest discoveries and our most potent formula for people with joint discomfort.
ASU (Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables) is derived from avocados and soybeans and has been shown in laboratory research to inhibit components that result in cartilage breakdown.
Ingredients shown in laboratory cell culture studies to work better than just the combination of glucosamine + chondroitin sulfate
Contains decaffeinated green tea for antioxidant health benefits.
Omega Mint Omega 3 Fish Oil Nutramax Labs Omega Mint Purified Omega-3 Fish Oil Heart Health Supplement is a specially formulated fish oil supplement rich in the important omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Uniquely flavored with natural peppermint, OmegaMint provides all the heart health benefits of fish oil without the fish flavor. OmegaMint softgels can be swallowed or chewed.
What is ASU and how does it work? ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables) is derived from avocados and soybeans. A potent ingredient demonstrated to protect cartilage which leads to improved joint function, ASU complements the effects of the other ingredients. While working through their own primary mechanisms of action, ASU, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate together deliver comprehensive joint health support. Our trademarked glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulfate, and avocado/soybean unsaponifiables together were shown in cell studies to be better than the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate at inhibiting expression of several agents involved in cartilage breakdown.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is 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 secretes 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.
Why does cartilage break down? There are many factors that lead to cartilage breakdown:
Inactivity or over activity
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.
How do I take Cosamin ASU? Maintenance:Once desired effect is noticed, you may gradually reduce the number of capsules to maintain comfort level. 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 capsules per day may be decreased to maintain comfort level. Some individuals on this lower level may wish to go back to four capsules a day during the weekends or times of increased activity. The maintenance level can also be used long-term to help maintain healthy joints. At any time, the number of capsules may be increased back to four capsules per day.
What should I look for when taking Cosamin ASU? Individual improvement on Cosamin ASU can range from gradual to dramatic, with some individuals responding sooner than others. Cosamin 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 time 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.
Are there any safety concerns with Cosamin ASU? There are no known contraindications or known interactions between Cosamin 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.
Why is OmegaMint Unique? Many people have objections to fish oil because of taste or odor. OmegaMint delivers fish oil in a pleasant, natural peppermint flavor, minimizing fishy breath or aftertaste.
What is OmegaMint? OmegaMint is a specially formulated fish oil supplement rich in the important omega-3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Uniquely flavored fish oil with natural peppermint, each softgel can be swallowed or chewed.
What is fish oil, and what are its benefits? Fish oil supplementation has been the topic of much research in recent years. Physicians are discovering many health benefits from the oil found in cold-water fish such as salmon and the omega-3 fatty acids it contains. Omega-3 fatty acids are the healthy fatty acids (unsaturated fats) that you may have read about for heart health. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids help support many other systems in the body including kidney function, the immune system, the nervous system, as well as help support overall health.
Why is OmegaMint flavored? Many people have objections to fish oil because of taste or odor. OmegaMint delivers fish oil in a pleasant, natural peppermint flavor, minimizing fishy breath or aftertaste.
Are any side effects expected when taking OmegaMint? There are no known side effects or interactions with any drug or nutritional supplement and no known contraindications when taking omega- 3 fatty acids at the suggested levels. We do recommend that you avoid taking higher than recommended levels of OmegaMint without checking with your physician first as excessive fish oil consumption above suggested levels can potentially affect blood clotting. For more information, visit americanheart.org. If you have any condition or allergy that requires medical attention you should always consult your physician before taking any drug or dietary supplement.
Do I get enough DHA and EPA in the foods I eat? DHA and EPA are found in cold-water fish; however, most of the U.S. population eats less than the recommended two servings per week. Some foods, including pastas and cereals, are now labeled as being “fortified with omega-3 fatty acids.” However, these foods often contain flaxseed oil which is a source of “short-chain” omega-3 fatty acids and not the long-chain omega-3s DHA and EPA. Research indicates DHA and EPA provide a higher degree of support for the heart and other organs than the short chain omega-3s. OmegaMint provides a direct source of DHA and EPA. Fish oil—not flaxseed oil—is recommended for heart health.
Contamination with heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, and other pollutants, such as PCBs and dioxins, can be an issue with fish and fish oil supplements. Should I be concerned about this with OmegaMint? Not at all. The fish oil in OmegaMint is tested for the presence of heavy metals and other pollutants and is molecularly distilled to ensure purity. OmegaMint is below the limits on mercury and lead levels in omega-3 consumer products pursuant to the GOED monograph (Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3’s).
