What is a joint health supplement?
A joint health supplement consists of ingredients that work in combination to support and protect healthy joint cartilage. Nutramax is an industry leader in research, development, and manufacturing of high quality joint health supplements for you.
What is joint cartilage?
Cartilage is a slippery, cushion like tissue between your bones. 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. Joints also have a synovial tissue lining that encloses them and secretes a lubricating fluid. The stability of the joint is supported by ligaments that connect bone to bone; and tendons that connect the ends of muscles to bone. Cartilage in the joint is produced and maintained by its own specialized cells. 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.
Why is cartilage important for joint health?
Cartilage serves as a protective layer between bones allowing them to move freely without pain. With age and other factors, cartilage starts to break down, resulting in stiffness and pain. The body cannot correct this process by itself, but using joint health supplements can help.
Cosamin ASU is an advanced proprietary formulation that combines NMX1000 avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU) with Cosamin's FCHG49 glucosamine and pharmaceutical-grade TRH122 sodium chondroitin sulfate.
Cosamin ASU is a dual synergistic formula: its specific combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have demonstrated synergy in stimulating cartilage production,1 while ASU also acts synergistically with glucosamine.
Cosamin DS is the #1 Brand Recommended by Orthopedic Specialists. As a joint health supplement, Cosamin DS helps reduce joint pain and stiffness by using ingredients that are safe, effective, and easily absorbed. Cosamin DS is superior to all other brands and has been proven effective in published clinical studies.
How Cosamin DS works
The two main ingredients in Cosamin DS, FCHG49 glucosamine and TRH122® chondroitin sulfate, stimulate the production of cartilage. In younger, healthier individuals cartilage cells would normally accomplish this task. However, as one ages, cartilage cells die off and are not replaced. This starts a cycle of destruction in the cartilage. There are also enzymes present that degrade cartilage. Glucosamine hydrochloride stimulates cartilage production while chondroitin sulfate inhibits enzymes that break down cartilage. Chondroitin sulfate has been shown in clinical trials to slow the progression of cartilage deterioration as well as reduce joint pain.
What is ASU and how does it work?
ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables) is obtained from avocados and soybeans. A potent ingredient demonstrated to protect cartilage which leads to improved joint function, ASU complements the effects of the other ingredients. While working through their own primary mechanisms of action, ASU, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate together deliver comprehensive joint health support. Our trademarked glucosamine hydrochloride, chondroitin sulfate, and avocado/soybean unsaponifiables together were shown in cell studies to be better than the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate at inhibiting expression of several agents involved in cartilage breakdown.
Avoca ASU is a vegetarian/shellfish-free joint health supplement that contains non-shellfish glucosamine, NMX1000 avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU), and OptiMSM Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). Avoca ASU also contains decaffeinated green tea extract for antioxidant health benefits. All ingredients are from non-animal origin.
What role do the glucosamine and ASU in Avoca ASU play?
The glucosamine in Avoca ASU enhances the production of cartilage matrix components that keep cartilage cells healthy and functioning properly. ASU stands for avocado/soybean unsaponifiables, derived from avocados and soybeans and used for joint health. Studies using cartilage cells have shown that ASU lowers the expression of several compounds involved in the process of cartilage breakdown in the joints. ASU complements the positive effects of the glucosamine in Avoca ASU. A greater than additive effect, known as a “synergistic” effect, on cartilage cells was seen using ASU and glucosamine together. Avoca ASU also contains decaffeinated green tea extract for antioxidant health benefit effects.

What is CoMAX Q10 ?
CoMAX Q10 is an easy-to-swallow softgel capsule that contains 50 mg coenzyme Q10 in a highly stable blend of oils.
Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant and is essential for the conversion of the food we eat into energy. Energy production takes place within specialized structures in our cells called mitochondria. Organs that have tremendous energy requirements, such as the heart, possess much greater numbers of the energy-producing mitochondria and thus need greater quantities of coenzyme Q10. As one ages, the level of coenzyme Q10 has been found to decrease1, which affects the body’s energy production.
What is Tivose?
Tivose is a dietary supplement containing Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC), a scientifically formulated extract derived from the mycelia (root-like structure) of Shiitake mushrooms. This extract has been shown to help support immune system health.
