    Cissus Caps 50%


    I have some of these I purchased a while back, but they are all dried up inside each capsule. So you can shake the cap and the log of powder goes back and forth.

    Is it still good to use/take?

    Also, could someone compare/contrast the "strength" of this vs. USP Labs version? Is it 1 cap to 1 cap equivalent, or do you take 2 Nutras to get 1 USP?

    you mean the powder is clumped together in the shape of a log/capsule? i'm sure it's still good to use, prolly just some humidity that made it clump...

    obviously 1 cap of 10% extract, for example, is not the same as a cap that has a 50% extract, given that they are the same weight...

    The powder inside the cap hardened up and is now a smaller sized "cissus clump" inside the cap.

    This says it is a 50% extract. The USP version says it is a 10%. Are you saying that it would take 5 USPs to equal 1 NP? Or the other way around?

    The cissus is labelled by the % ketosterone content, but other ingredients in the cissus extract also have medicinal qualities. Try different ones, since it seems everbody has a personal preference.

    Do you agree that just because the cissus appears dried up, that it still is fine to take and retains its desired qualities?

    It should be fine, sounds like a bit of moisture got in, but no problem there.
