ASU is an extract which can be obtained from avocado and soybeans, and is included in several oral joint supplements. It can help by protecting cartilage, support repair and also mantain comfort in joints. It has been proven by research that ASU is both effective and save.
ASU compliments the action of glucosamine and chondroitin, and helps the cells in the joint produce the building blocks of cartilage. It has been approved for use in humans in Europe for a number of years. Studies have shown that it provides long-term relief of osteoarthritis of the knee and hip in people and may decrease their need for other medications that are more likely to have side effects, such as aspirin, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Some dogs have had sensitivities to eating whole avocados. However, ASU is made from an extract of avocados which is safe for dogs, with no adverse side effects. Combined with weight control and a veterinarian-recommended exercise program, ASU is a great addition to comprehensive joint health support.
ASU is a supplement that provides key components to maintain joint health. You should observe gradual changes in comfort level. Look for subtle changes initially, such as an easier time going up and down stairs and more comfort in daily activities, such as walking.
