    I'm underwhelmed so far. My knees/ankles are almost in worse shape than when I was running non-stop.

    Still giving it the month's try but..I'm not seeing hugely awesome results.

    Different strokes for different folks. I does wonders for me. That said not everything works for everyone and that sucks. I just got my second bottle today and i couldnt be without it.

    FWIW i upped my dose to 3 twice a day about 2 weeks into it

    Well, if it's *truly* not a placebo, and it's an analgesic type thing, it should at least produce some results in almost everyone. I know some people don't respond to creatine, etc. so take that for what it's worth. However I could see some possible dosing issues, I know a lot of people mega-dose it.

    Hm. Bottle dosing recommendations is 4 caps, split into two doses. It wouldn't make sense they'd recommend underdosing it though.

    Yeah, I'm really curious about it. Could only find a few studies, and they weren't anything dramatic, plus they were Indian studies and it's a traditional herb over there sooo...

    Hmm..that's interesting, I'd briefly heard of nandi's article but hadn't read it. The claim that it's mg per mg analgesic like ibu certainly doesn't seem to work in my case; I'm taking 1200 mg per day and 1200 mg of ibu per day means no pain at all.

    Not sure how many in a bottle, but I'm sure they wouldn't want to look like a bottle only lasts for 10 days considering the price.

    another thing to keep in mind, Cissus isnt really designed to stop joint pain... its for ligaments and shit. Osteo Bi Flex has been great for my joint pain, cissus helped a ton with muscles and ligament problems I was having

    And what type of anabolic effects if you can specify?

    Well yeah- my knee/ankle pain was ITB/achilles type of stuff.

    I did finish out the bottle and I got zip. :hs: No cissus pump, nada.

    its pretty comparable to dbol






    er... the anabolic effects are minor, i think it just helps with the tendon/muscle shit. not like you're gonna get swole off cissus. I was taking the normal bottle dose - 2caps 30min before breakfast and 2caps 6-8hrs later. I was also stacking with Powerfull
