When your joints are worn out…
It can LIMIT your ability to get out of bed with ease… stay standing for more than just a few moments… or move around the way you want to.
That’s because the soft tissue that ABSORBS the shock of your day-to-day activities could have ERODED AWAY…
Leaving barely anything to cushion the areas where your major bones meet.
And if you suffer from knee pain… or aching hips… you know EXACTLY what I mean.
Fortunately, you can SUPPORT your joint health with a natural inflammation-blocker – one that comes from 2 familiar food sources.
Now, this isn’t one of those anti-inflammatory drugs your doc has pushed on you… like an NSAID or even a steroid…
It’s a natural trick for OPTIMIZING your joint health!
It doesn’t just put your discomfort ON PAUSE…
It could actually hit the brakes on… and even REVERSE… some of the wear and tear that’s making your joints ache, swell, and stiffen.
Here’s how works – and how it could help improve your MOBILITY and FLEXIBILITY.
Like an oil can for your joints
Avocado soy unsaponifiables (ASU) are special substances extracted from avocado and soybean fibers.
They actually started out as a byproduct of the soap-making process, a.k.a. saponification!
The “unsaponifiables” are what’s left after the vegetable oils and lipids are “soap-ified” with lye.
But it would be a shame to let any ASU go to waste…
Because this weird-sounding ingredient can help REBUILD cartilage… especially the kind that REALLY takes a beating!
I’m talking about articular cartilage, found at the end of your “long” bones, like your leg bones.
When you’re walking or standing, this cartilage acts as a “shock absorber.”
You see, cartilage is a spongey material with a lot of “give” to it. As your weight bears down on it, its water content gets SQUEEZED out… and what’s left is mostly a protein component called aggrecan.
When the pressure lets up, the water returns to the cartilage… and, at rest, actually makes up for about 75% of its total volume.
In order to help this “ebb and flow” continue effortlessly… and without pain… you’ve got to maintain healthy aggrecan levels.
Unfortunately, there’s something that can BLOCK the production of aggrecan in your body…
And that can contribute to your joints DETERIORATING.
But it turns out that ASU can EXTINGUISH that inflammation… and INHIBIT the breakdown of cartilage.
Not only that, but it can also PROMOTE repair by STIMULATING cartilage cells (a.k.a. chondrocytes) to produce aggrecan (and collagen, too).
The result? You could keep your joints LUBRICATED and FLEXIBLE.
And that could mean improvements in…
- stiffness, and
- physical function.
In fact, study subjects who’ve taken ASU have been able to PULL BACK on the pain pills they need to take!
And in one study, folks taking ASU saw their hip OA disease progression REDUCED by 20%!
Now, you’ve probably heard of people getting some relief from supplements like chondroitin and glucosamine – and guess what?
That’s because BOTH of these ingredients boost aggrecan levels.
Aggrecan actually CONTAINS both of these substances!
But for some people with the “wear and tear” form of arthritis, chondroitin and glucosamine aren’t enough… and don’t quite do the trick on their own.
Fortunately, ASU might work even when all else has FAILED.
But it’s not a quick fix… and it might take a little while before you start to FEEL the effects.
Research shows significant improvements after 6 months, but it could take a little longer for you. Then again, other folks feel better much more quickly.
Rest assured that once you start taking ASU, it gets to work inside your joints right away!
Now, you might think that you could get the same benefit just by eating whole avocado or soybeans.
But unfortunately, that’s not the case. Your body can’t extract the ASUs from the fiber content they’re bound to.
The ASUs have got to be extracted first.
As a general rule, ASU extract contains 1 part avocado unsaponifiable and 2 parts soybean unsaponifiables.
A purified form of it has been available as a prescription drug in Europe for several years…
But in this country, it’s available in the supplement aisle without an Rx.
One option is a product called Arthrocen 300, which you can purchase online. The “300” refers to the standard recommended dosage, which is 300 mg at least once daily.
You can also check the ingredient lists of joint support formulas from your favorite quality maker… and look for one that lists a patented ASU extract called AvoVida.
You might even find ASU combined with glucosamine and chondroitin in one combination formula.
Now, ASU doesn’t REPLACE other good-sense practices for osteoarthritis… like gentle exercise or physical therapy…
But it can COMPLEMENT those strategies and more.
To “shocks” that feel like new,
