What is Swanson Ultra AvoVida (Avocado & Soy Unsaponifiables A.S.U)?
Swanson AvoVida is a patented active complex created entirely from vegetable sources, in this case – two of the most nutrient rich sources available to us today – avocados and soybeans. Standardised to contain more than 30% unsaponifiables, it far outstrips most other ASUs available on the market today.
But what is an unsaponifiable and why is it good for us? An unsaponifiable is a substance or fat which will not turn to soap when mixed with lye. Saponifiable oils when mixed with lye are what we use to make all kinds of soap. It is that very chemical reaction, or in this case the lack of it, that tells us whether or not these fats are ‘good fats’.
These good fats have numerous health benefits that are now being linked to degenerative muscle and joint diseases.
What is Swanson Ultra AvoVida (Avocado & Soy Unsaponifiables A.S.U) used for?
For those of us who suffer with arthritis, osteoarthritis or even muscular pain and immobility, the discomfort can range from mild and manageable through to completely debilitating. Swanson Ultra AvoVida could well be the difference when it comes to making it through the day uninhibited. In the past we have been encouraged to try a litany of different aids- from glucosamine through to chondroitin but in some cases they just don’t help.
Swanson Ultra AvoVida has been shown to better the health of our joints by actually stimulating the generation of new cartilage while constantly reducing the breakdown of pre-existing cartilage in our body.
It doesn’t just aid the collagen in our cartilage either (which provides the cartilage with its framework and armature). It also helps with the maintenance of the proteoglycan molecules which give cartilage its shock-absorbing, suspension like quality too.
So who can benefit?
- Osteoarthritis sufferers
- Those lacking in muscular mobility
By acting differently to other chemicals that stimulate collagen production, Swanson Ultra AvoVida produces the exact same four types of collagen in the exact same proportion as you would find in healthy, normal joint cartilage.
- Swanson Ultra AvoVida can decrease pain
- Decreases inflammation and the need for pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs
