A tasty, apple flavored treat that provides 50 mg hyaluronic acid and 1000 mg avocado/soybean unsaponifiables per 2-tablet serving. Formulated to keep joints lubricated and prevent the breakdown of cartilage. Feed 2-4 tablets per day.
ASU: ASU is an acronym for avocado/soybean unsaponifiables, a supplement ingredient derived from avocados and soybeans and used for joint health support. Cartilage cell research has shown that ASU lowers the expression of mediators involved in joint cartilage breakdown which helps to keep cartilage healthy.
While the joint health supplement ingredients glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate also do this, combining the agents with ASU has been shown to work even better in joint cell research. A research study in horses by a leading U.S. veterinary college noted that administration of ASU lessened the severity of cartilage breakdown but suggested combining ASU with other agents for relief of clinical signs.
Therefore, comprehensive joint health support for your horse may be obtained by using ASU, glucosamine, and chondroitin sulfate.
