‘When you are dealing with joint pain and osteoarthritis, you know it can be tiresome to try new products. It seems like every week, some new product comes around claiming it works only for it to be snake oil. You just cant trust what people tell you about their product. That is one of the reasons that you should always try and find outside expert opinion and see what they have to say. 

We made Avasun based on the science. We have previously discussed the research on ASU, our main active ingredient. Its clinical studies back up why we believe it can help you. But even more importantly, we can also say that many experts will back us up. Let’s go through what they have to say about our product. 

The Mayo Clinic is one of the leading elite hospitals in the nation. Besides seeing patients they also have a great resource of public information on different diseases and therapies. What many people don’t know is that they frequently also discuss natural supplements and things besides drugs. For instance, only look at their page on Osteoarthritis to see what they have to say about such alternative medicine approaches.

What the experts say:

As you can see they discuss some of the supplements available for this condition. Here is what the Mayo Clinic has to say:

“Glucosamine and chondroitin. Studies have been mixed on these nutritional supplements. A few have found benefits for people with osteoarthritis, while most indicate that these supplements work no better than a placebo. Glucosamine and chondroitin can interact with blood thinners such as warfarin and cause bleeding problems.

Avocado-soybean unsaponifiables. This nutritional supplement — a mixture of avocado and soybean oils — is widely used in Europe to treat knee and hip osteoarthritis. It acts as an anti-inflammatory, and some studies have shown it can slow or even prevent joint damage. Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s, found in fatty fish and fish oil supplements, might help relieve pain and improve function.”

So its not just us. Others know this nutritional supplement is used widely in Europe and might slow or prevent joint damage. They say the same exact thing.

What does WebMD have to say about it?

“Avocado Soybean Unsaponifiables (ASU)

This supplement is a vegetable extract made from the oils of avocados and soybeans. Studies show that it may help prevent cartilage from breaking down and provide relief from the pain of osteoarthritis.”

So that’s two separate sources – the Mayo Clinic and WebMD that back up what we have to say about our ASU. You can feel confident that we are not making this up. The research and other authorities back us up. While it won’t work for everyone, even the research says it doesn’t work for everyone, you can feel confident that it does work for some people and the only way to find out is to give it a try.
