Cosequin® ASU

  • The #1 veterinarian recommended joint health supplement brand
  • Broad spectrum joint support in a tasty powder
  • Contains the exclusive trademarked ingredients: FCHG49® Glucosamine, TRH122® Chondroitin Sulfate, and NMX1000® Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables (ASU); and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM)
  • ASU complements the effects of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate

U.S. Patent Nos. 6,797,289 and 8,753,697. For use under U.S. Patent No. 8,568,803.


Cosequin ASU goes above and beyond the traditional glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate products on the market with the addition of ASU (avocado/soybean unsaponifiables). ASU is obtained from avocados and soybeans. It is a potent ingredient demonstrated to help protect cartilage and support joint function. Cosequin ASU is a multi-synergistic formula. The specific trademarked glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate have demonstrated synergy in stimulating the production of cartilage matrix components, while ASU acts synergistically with both glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate for additional joint support. Further, the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate plus ASU has been shown in cartilage cell studies to work better than the combination of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate alone at inhibiting the expression of several agents involved in cartilage breakdown. These ingredients, while working via their own mechanisms of action, also work together to deliver comprehensive joint health support. All in a tasty and easy-to-deliver powder!

Cosequin® ASU Plus

  • The #1 veterinarian recommended joint health supplement brand
  • The most advanced Cosequin joint health formula
  • Contains the exclusive trademarked ingredients: FCHG49® Glucosamine, TRH122® Chondroitin Sulfate, and NMX1000® Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables (ASU); methylsulfonylmethane (MSM); PLUS high quality hyaluronic acid (HA) and green tea extract

U.S. Patent Nos. 6,797,289, 8,753,697, and 9,572,791. For use under U.S. Patent Nos. 8,568,803 and 8,808,770.


Cosequin ASU Plus contains the same ingredients (glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, MSM, and ASU) as Cosequin ASU with the addition of HA and green tea extract. HA is found naturally in the body and is the major component of synovial fluid, the substance that lubricates joints and keeps them moving fluidly. The combination of ASU/glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate with HA was shown to be more effective in reducing the expression of several factors involved in the breakdown of cartilage than ASU/glucosamine/chondroitin sulfate or HA alone. ASU with green tea extract was shown to be more effective than either ingredient alone in decreasing factor expression.
