Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic synovial joint disease. Particularly That characterized by two main features

Compounds Osteoarthritis (OA)

Avocado/soybean unsaponifiables

Are natural vegetable extracts made from avocado and soybean oils, consisting of the leftover fraction (1%). ASU is composed of one-third avocado and two thirds soybean unsaponifiables (A1S2U)

 (Avocado) The major components of ASU

Phytosterols β-sitosterol, campesterol, and stigmasterol all of a sudden T is rapidly incorporated into cells. the sterol contents of ASU preparations are the primary contributors to biological activity in articular 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
