Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic synovial joint disease. .Particularly That characterized by two main features
Progressive Damage of Articular .Cartilage
Among the progressive damage of articular cartilage, specifically we can mention bone regeneration, new bone formation, synovial inflammation, fibrosis of ligaments, tendons and meniscal capsules
In any case, all joints may be affected, the most common being the knees, hands, and hips, .Compounds Osteoarthritis (OA)
Besides, it was reported that it can improve the mood and quality life of postmenopausal women .thus reducing menopause-related symptoms
Progressive damage of articular cartilage is a term used to describe the gradual deterioration and breakdown of the smooth, protective tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. also This type of damage is often associated with conditions such as osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease that is characterized by the breakdown of cartilage over time.
Compounds Osteoarthritis (OA)
Avocado and soybean unsaponifiables
Are natural vegetable extracts made from avocado and soybean oils, consisting of the leftover fraction (1%). also ASU is composed of one-third avocado and two thirds soybean .unsaponifiables (A1S2U)
The major components of ASU
Phytosterols β-sitosterol, campestral, and stigmasterol all of a sudden T is rapidly incorporated into cells. so, the sterol contents of ASU preparations are the primary. Contributors to biological activity in particular chondrocytes. Accordingly, the association of all extracts which constitute ASU exerts more powerful synergistic effects, unquestionably different from that exercised by each of. the individual components.
Avocado and soybean unsaponifiable (ASU) is a mixture of compounds derived from avocado and soybean oils. additionally, the major components of ASU include various bioactive molecules that contribute to its potential health benefits, particularly in supporting joint health and managing conditions like osteoarthritis.
