Cosamin - ASU Joint Health Supplement Advanced Formula - 180 Capsules

Cosamin ASU Joint Health Supplement Advanced Formula 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 our 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.
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:
  • 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.

How do I take Cosamin ASU?


Maximum Protection:
Take 4 capsules per day. Capsules may be taken all at once or divided with meals throughout the day.

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.

I have been using this product for years for my knee and it is the only product of this kind on the market that actually works. It virtually eliminates any pain - PERMANENTLY. Good price on Lucky Vitamin. Thanks.

My husband is 76 with the usual aches & pains, especially in his left shoulder which, for other medical reasons, he cannot have surgery for. He took Cosamin ASU for a few months but didn't think it helped--until he discontinued it! The pains were back! When he started the Cosamin again, he got relief again. He's on it for good this time. He takes 4 capsules a day. Thank you for making this product available.
