How Does Cosamin ASU work?
The four ingredients in Cosamin®ASU team up to promote and support joint health.
•The “Blockers” ASU and AKBA - shown to decrease Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), a signaling molecule associated with cartilage breakdown.
•The “Inducer” Glucosamine - shown in laboratory research to activate key components of cartilage matrix
•The “Inhibitor” Chondroitin - shown to lower the expression of enzymes that break down cartilage
Why Do We Need Joint Health Support?
Joints are the junction between two or more bones. The ends of the bones are covered with cartilage which serves as a smooth, resilient cushion that allows the joint to move freely. When you do even the simplest of everyday activities, there is tremendous pressure on your joints. The protective cartilage cushion and joint fluid work together like a shock absorber to allow for proper joint flexibility.
The ingredients in Cosamin ASU help support and promote joint health for those feeling the effects of physical activity.
Why Does Cartilage Break Down?
Cartilage lacks a direct blood supply. It relies on nutrients found in the joint fluid to nourish cartilage cells and maintain its structure. When this process is affected by one or more of the factors mentioned above, cartilage can break down to the point where it can no longer work efficiently.
•Inactivity or over activity

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I look for when taking Cosamin ASU?
Cosamin ASU is a supplement providing key ingredients to help maintain your joint health; therefore, it works gradually. Give yourself time to respond. Individual response can vary in the level of joint comfort achieved and the time it takes to notice this change. Look for subtle changes initially, such as an easier time going up and down stairs, playing sports, and more comfort in daily activities.
Should all capsules be taken at the same time or can they be taken though out the day?
Either is acceptable; can be taken with or without food.
Are there any safety concerns with Cosamin® ASU?
No there are no known contraindications or side effects. As with any dietary supplement, if you have any condition or allergy that requires medical attention, you should always consult your physician.
Is Cosamin safe for diabetics to use?
Yes. We supported a study with a combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate (Cosamin DS) that found that it is safe for diabetics.
