What is Cissus Quadrangularis?

Cissus Quadrangularis, also commonly known as Veldt Grape or Devil's Backbone, has been around as a medical plant for ages and ages. It is a perennial plant of the grape family and was first used as a general tonic and analgesic used specifically because of it's bone fracture healing properties.

What are the Benefits of Cissus Quadrangularis?

There may have been something to this because modern medicine has shown Cissus Quadrangularis benefits to aid in the healing of bones by acting as a glucocorticoid antagonist. Since anabolic and androgenic compounds are well known to act as antagonists to the glucocorticoid receptor as well as promote bone growth and fracture healing, it has been thought that Cissus Quadrangularis possesses anabolic and or androgenic properties. In conjunction to healing bones and fractures, Cissus Quadrangularis has also been shown to increase the tensile and breaking points of bones as well. Although this may be a huge advantage to athletes and active people alike, Cissus Quadrangularis possesses anther characteristic that needs to be mentioned; just as Cissus Quadrangularis aids in bone repair, health and strength, Cissus Quadrangularis also aids in the repair, health and strength of connective tissue, like tendons which offers yet another advantage.

While the increased rate of bone and connective tissue healing may be of great significance to athletes and active people and those suffering from chronic diseases like osteoporosis, the anti-glucocorticoid properties of Cissus Quadrangularis may be of much more interest to bodybuilders and athletes since endogenous glucocorticoids, particularly cortisol, are not only catabolic to bone, but muscle tissue as well, in fact, Cissus Quadrangularis may also help preserve muscle tissue during times of physical AND emotional stress.

Perhaps one of the lesser, yet an extremely important characteristic of Cissus Quadrangularis which needs to be noted is that Cissus Quadrangularis is also rich in the vitamins/antioxidants including vitamin C and beta-carotene.

Last but not least, Cissus Quadrangularis has also shown to possess analgesic properties on a mg per mg basis comparable to aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen. Cissus quadrangularis constitutes one of the ingredients of an Ayurvedic preparation, `Laksha Gogglu', which has been proved to be highly effective in relieving pain, reduction of swelling and promoting the process of healing of the simple fractures as well as in curing the allied disorders associated with fractures.

Questions & Answers

Q: Watched the video and this is a interesting supplement. My questions are is this a extract form and is it organically grown?
Asked by:  - 2/11/2014
A: Hello, it is an extract as the plant itself does not contain enough active ingredients to be effective. The extract is in fact extracted from the Cissus Quadrangularis plant.

4 Stars Review average guy
Been taking this at "loading" dose for about 2 weeks. I haven't noticed a big reduction in the tendonitis I have in my knee, but at the same time, it hasn't gotten any worse. Pretty early on to say for sure one way or the other but product shipped fast and exactly as advertised!
