I feel like I have been living under a rock lately. Some how I have missed all the hype about ASU, which is a supplement used for osteoarthritis (OA). ASU is an extract from the oils of avocado and soy, which has been shown in studies to decrease pain and regenerate cartilage in patients who have OA.
The studies seem to be substantial and published in respected peer reviewed journals. Here is a link to a very informative article on ASU with the studies sited. Also, here is an NIH study from PubMed that demonstrated the efficacy of ASU.
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and can cause neck pain, back pain and joint pain. For more information about how we treat these areas visit our neck pain page and our back pain page.
If anyone has had experience with this product I would be interested in hearing about your experience.
