my review after trying By: Alex

I split this supplement into two cycles, each lasting approx 3 weeks, and separated by one full month off. I started dosing at 1g, 2x a day, and continued to increase through 1.5 and eventually 2g, 2x a day. Here's what I noticed: In terms of sheer effectiveness, it definitely worked better than I expected. Not the miracle instant cure like those who rave that cissus cured all their aches and pains within two days (pain relief, maybe--healing, no way), it actually took well into the second week each run for any results to show. Fortunately, the positive results lasted 2-3 weeks after each run ended, and when the problems came back they came back less severe. As for my injuries, I have a left wrist that gives me trouble from overuse, and a right shoulder that buckles at the very top of any press that includes a slight external rotation--both of these old injuries. After the two week mark I began to notice an increase in strength on exercises and movements that used to agitate my injuries, which was clearly due to improved form as a result of no longer guarding these injuries by favoring other joints, altering the movement, etc. In short, I could now give 100% effort to the movement without worrying about the pain my mind kept telling me was surely coming. Again I should state that I ran both cycles the exact same way both times, with similar results. After a month off my pain began to return, and was once again relieved after starting the second cycle. I'd like to know if the injuries would have "healed" more completely with a longer cycle, or if I could postpone the returning pain, so I'll definitely run cissus again. One negative side effect I should mention is that while on the cissus I had intermittent headaches that felt like an acute swelling (not pounding) in the frontal and temporal regions of my head. They weren't unbearable, but they were definitely dose dependent, as they increased in severity as I upped the dosage of the cissus, went away during my one month off period, and came back again with the second cycle. Also, in spite of everything I've read about the gastroprotective benefits of cissus, I actually experienced slight stomach upset and increased acid indigestion while taking it. Not terrible, but enough that on occasion I'd get that burning feeling in my gut. I have had problems with stomach acid levels in the past. In conclusion the benefits far outweigh the negative sides, which were relatively mild for me. I'd like to try USP labs SuperCissus next, though I'm chagrined they discontinued their ENTIRE LINE OF BULK POWDERS, including the bulk super cissus. Perhaps they finally realized it was "too good a deal"? At any rate, watch for another review in the coming months, as I want to try the super cissus as well as the nutra bulk cissus. Thanks for reading! ~Alex

About to order one of these. Primaforce is a reputable source in my experience, but more important I'm sick and tired of all the fake USP labs reviews. Just look at the page for the bulk Super Cissus. Almost every review is five stars and they're all pretty much the same. Leaving fake reviews on OTHER products and attempting to discourage users from buying is just going too far. If the USP cissus is so amazing then the results from another brand should be similar. I will post my results in a month or two.

I have been using Super Cissus powder for over a year now, fantastic stuff. I thought i would try this since is a 20% extract instead of 10%, always looking to save a penny. This stuff did nothing for me dosed it at 2-3 grams per day and all my joints began to hurt again. I just got in my Super Cissus and within 2 days I was feeling better.
