Using Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables

Question: Where Can I Get Avocado/Soybean Unsaponifiables?

I just read your article, 5 Remedies for Osteoarthritis Pain. Can you tell me where avocado/soybean unsaponifiables supplements can be purchased?

Avocado/soybean unsaponifiables are available in supplement form at some health food stores or online, but they are generally quite difficult to find. 

They are typically used in alternative medicine for osteoarthritis.

Several preliminary trials suggest that it may help to improve the pain and stiffness of knee and hip osteoarthritis. Due to the limited research, however, it's too soon to recommend avocado/soybean unsaponifiables as a treatment for osteoarthritis. It's also important to note that self-treating a condition and avoiding or delaying standard care may have serious consequences. If you're considering using avocado/soybean unsaponifiables for any health purpose, make sure to consult your physician first.
