USPowders Bulk Super Cissus: Top Quality 20% Cissus Quandrangularis!
Bulk Super Cissus is a highly focussed and effective joint, bone, and connective-tissue-supportive matrix. Benefitting from USPowders' unique herbal extraction technology and unmatched value-for-money, Bulk Super Cissus was specifically designed to deliver the following benefits, amongst others:
To understand how Bulk Super Cissus elicits these results, it is useful to review the following:
Cissus quadrangularis is a multi-functional, pluripotent herb with a range of photochemical constituents that range from flavonoids, phytosterols, triterpenoids, tannins, ketosteroids, ascorbic acid, calcium, and other metabolites. [12,16]. It possesses a variety of pharmacognostic and pharmacological properties [12,16] that include analgesic [4,5], anti-osteoporotic , bone regeneration and bone-fracture healing [6-11], anabolic and androgenic [19-21], anti-inflammatory [13-15], anti-obesity , antioxidant , anti-hemorrhoidal, and gastroprotective activities.
Bulk Super Cissus is specifically extracted for the potent photochemical constituent, ketosterones, a central multifunctional agent in the cissus plant that possesses a variety of beneficial pharmacological properties enumerated earlier.
More specifically, recent research demonstrates that cissus not only supports pronounced expression or proliferation of bone marrow stem cells, but also promotes their differentiation as well as osteoblastogenesis (the production of osteoblasts) and the downstream calcification of bone structures. In particular, cissus has been shown to stimulate the proliferation of bone-marrow mesenchymal stem cells, enhance the differentiation of these stem mesenchymal stem cells into osteoblasts (bone-forming cells), and ultimately trigger the calcification (as in the deposition of calcium salts in the cartilage, an important event in bone formation) of bone structures. For those interested, mesenchymal stem cells are undifferentiated mesodermal (embryonic source of structures such as connective tissue, bone, muscle, and dermis) cells that trigger the structural production of connective tissue, bone, and cartilage (supportive connective tissue that pads the bone at the junction between bone and muscle). By enabling these proliferation and differentiation processes in specific stem cells, as well as by supporting calcification in bone structures, cissus supports the maintenance of the structural integrity of bones, with special respect to bone generation and regeneration, as well as bone healing and strengthening.
Further research support for cissus' proliferation, differentiation, and mineralization effects was provided in a 2011 study that suggests that cissus treatment achieves these effects via stimulation of DNA synthesis in human osteoblast-like cells, consequently triggering their proliferation or increased expression. The same study asserts that cissus induces anabolic effects in these cells via stimulation of higher mRNA and protein expression of a transcription factor (Runx2) involved in the modulation of bone-matrix proteins. In murine models, the cissus-induced mineralization effect was shown to occur via an enrichment of alkaline phosphatase mediated by an MAPK-dependent pathway. Studies on the proliferation effects of cissus on fibroblasts, osteoblasts, and chrondoblasts, as well as on its beneficial effects on bone-fracture healing postulate pathways that include an improved osteoblastic uptake of minerals (calcium, sulphur, phosphorous) as well as a stimulation of the regeneration of the chemical composition of fractured bones, with respect to collagen, phosphorous, mucopolysaccharides, and related agents.[10, 11].
Cissus' anti-inflammatory activities have also been documented [13-15]. In particular, cissus induces these actions via an inhibition of the cyclooxygenase (COX-2) and lipooxygenase (5-LOX) enzymatic pathways of the inflammatory cascade. The inhibition of COX-2 prevents the conversion of arachidonic acid into the pro-inflammatory agent, prostaglandin E2, that intensifies inflammation and joint destruction. Recall that, as arachidonic acid can utilize the COX-2 and the 5-LOX pathways for exerting its destructive inflammatory cascade, blocking the COX-2 pathway alone is not sufficient to halt the inflammatory effects of arachidonic acid. Fortunately, however, cissus also inhibits 5-LOX, preventing the conversion of arachidonic acid into leukotriene B4, another pro-inflammatory agent that leads to inflammation and compromised connective tissue and bone integrity.
Cissus also exerts considerable anabolic and androgenic activity, ranging from increased bone-tissue tensile strength, bone-fracture healing, and anti-glucocorticoid activity. [19-21] As is well-known, glucocorticoids activate the obiquitin-proteasome pathway, leading to the breakdown of muscle tissue. Cissus' anti-glucocorticoid and anabolic actions induce anti-catabolic (muscle-preserving) effects, supporting further anabolic processes.
So, overall, Bulk Super Cissus is a safe, reliable, and effective agent specifically engineered to deliver potent bone and connective-tissue growth, regeneration, and remodeling effects; powerful and analgesic effects; potent anti-glucocorticoid and anti-catabolic results; significant anabolic and androgenic effects; as well as pronounced antioxidant, lipolytic, and metabolic-regulating outcomes.

This stuff works for my elbow pain they only bother me a little when taking super cissus rx. It tastes bad but it is well worth it if I'm not in pain. I run out for about a wk and my elbows are starting to hurt again just ordered more. I hope the pain is gone in a wk I will make sure I don't run out again!

Cured my elbow tendonitis in about 2 weeks of 4g/day, helped my RC issues in my shoulders also. Can't beat it for the price! I plan on making this a staple every month.
Jacob, can you please bring this back!!! By: Dhruv

There are only a few handful of supps that make it as my staples besides whey/casein, EAAs, EFAs, and a multi, and one of those is cissus. I have tried both Primaforce's and Nutra's cissus and although they weren't horrible, they just didn't compare to Super Cissus RX. Jacob, I know you can't please everyone, but if you could just bring back Super Cissus RX, VAT Attack! and Focus Dirt back in bulk, I will never bother you again. I don't even want to begin to describe how awesome VAT Attack! made me feel.

I have a busted leg from a car accident. Shin splints in the leg very bad when i run. i also have a bad shoulder from an injury when i pitched. I started taking cissus and the injuries/pain is about 90% better.
This stuff is legit. By: Shannon

I've had problems with my elbows and shoulders in the past, keeping me from lifting too heavy on shoulder press and bench. Super Cissus has definitely helped me throw around the big boy weights again. It tastes like booty, but it's well worth it! I can also tell when I missed a dose. Without a doubt, Super Cissus will stay on my daily supplement list.
