Effective for arthritis sufferers, and for overall joint health, ASU helps to rebuild cartilage and ease pain.
ASU is a natural vegetable extract made from avocado and soybean oils.
Avocado soybean unsaponifiables has been a prescription treatment for osteoarthritis in France since the early 1990s.
ASU comes from a very small fraction of the natural oil found in avocados and soybeans; the supplement is mixed in ratio of one part avocado to two parts soybean.
A large quantity of raw material—fresh avocados and soybeans—is needed to make ASU.
Only a fraction of the whole avocados and soybeans is made up of oil, and of that oil, only a tiny fraction is the unsaponifiable portion.
There’s so little ASU in a single avocado or handful of soybeans that you couldn’t possibly eat enough of them to get a useful dose of ASU; only the supplements contain enough to be therapeutically useful.
