    it's umm...earthy.

    it does not mix in water very well :hs:

    but 9.99 for 100g is better than getting the Cissus RX stuff from usplabs or whoever for like 85g for 40$ :coolugh:

    Cissus quadrangularis is an ancient medicinal plant native to the hotter parts of Ceylon and India. It was prescribed in the ancient Ayurvedic texts as a general tonic. Modern research has shed light on Cissus' ability to help support bone health by showing it acts as a glucocorticoid antagonist (1,2). Since anabolic/androgenic compounds are well known to act as antagonists to the glucocorticoid receptor as well as promote good bone health, it has been postulated that Cissus possesses anabolic and/or androgenic properties (1,3).
    The typical recommended daily dosage of Cissus extract is between 500 and 1000 mg, depending on the concentration of the extract. For the powder of the dried plant, the Ayurvedic texts recommend a dosage of 3 to 6 grams. Safety studies in rats showed no toxic effects at dosages as high as 2000 mg/kg of body weight. So not only is Cissus efficacious, it is also quite safe, in either the dried powder form or the commercially available extract.

    USPLab's Cissus is nowhere near $40. They're also coming out with version 2 which will have a higher standardized extract.

    I'd like to see some controlled studies saying it helps tendons; the only thing I could ever find that was legitimate referenced it's use in healing broken bones, but even that wasn't a strong case.

    If something works as well as it claims, I would expect better than a 50% success rate, especially allowing for placebo.

    I just figured from the good things I did hear about from Cave and others on here, that I could give it a try for a measly 9.99
