    ABSTRACT: Aim: Once considered a problem of developed countries, obesity and obesity-related complications (such as metabolic syndrome) are rapidly spreading around the globe. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the use of a Cissus quadrangularis formulation in the management of metabolic syndrome, particularly weight loss and central obesity. METHODS: The study was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled design involving 123 overweight and obese persons (47.2% male; 52.8% female; ages 19 to 50). The 92 obese (BMI >30) participants were randomized into three groups---placebo, formulation/no diet, and formulation/diet (2100 to 2200 calories/day). The 31 overweight participants (BMI = 25 to 29) formed a fourth (no diet) treatment group. All participants received two daily doses of the formulation or placebo and remained on a normal or calorie-controlled diet for 8 weeks. RESULTS: At the end of the trial period, statistically significant net reductions in weight and central obesity, as well as in fasting blood glucose, total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, and C-reactive protein were observed in participants who received the formulation, regardless of diet. CONCLUSION: Cissus quadrangularis formulation appears to be useful in the management of weight loss and metabolic syndrome.

  4. Is this the USP stuff???

    No, USPLabs is out and probably will be for a while...

    Is the source just as good as USPLabs? I felt very comfortable trusting that source for raws.

    How important is it to take on an empty stomach? I sometimes donít have time or take it right before/after a meal. In reality, to get a true empty stomach absorption you would need to take it at least 20min before you eat. Was this recommendation just to increase absorption or is it something else? Am I wasting a dose by taking it with vitamins after a meal? Maybe USPLabs can chime in...

    In a related note, I have an AC joint (shoulder/collar bone) injury. I have to watch certain angles and things when doing chest/shoulder workouts. If I tweak it too much I will feel it within a day but it quickly goes away. It's a mild nagging thing and its easy to work around. Anyway, since I have been taking bulk cissus (1/2 tsp 2xday) the AC pain is completely gone. I have even tested certain exercises that normally make my shoulder hurt the next day. To my surprise, I have had no shoulder pain at all. I didnt expect this much from cissus. I notice that my elbows dont hurt as much but I figured that would be the extent of it. I cant really attribute the AC alleviation to any other cause. Not to sound like a promotional ad, but I wouldnt have believed this if someone else wrote it. I did experience it though.

    I would assume this is recommended for maximal absorption. However, taking it with or close to a meal will not waste the dose, so you should be good.

    I believe you, I've heard so many amazing success stories about Cissus. There's a reason why this sells so well...BECAUSE IT WORKS!

  9. On your site, there is discrepency on how many mg a 1/4 teaspoon holds.

    1/4 level teaspoon = ~900 mg

    then

    Label Information
    Directions:
    As a dietary supplement take 500 mg (1/4 teaspoon) once or twice daily or as directed by your health care professional

  10. I just measured a level 1/4 tsp and it came out to ~800 mg. It seems that one measurement was loosely done and the other was rounded. Sorry for the confusion

  11. So what is the ideal dosage and schedule? Obviously megadosing is great but from an economic view whats the ideal dosage? Same as the USP caps?

    someone on M&M posted a link to the full pdf. Unfortunately the formula is cissus, GTE and a few other things. A study on cissus alone would have been more useful as their results are questionable, at least their interpretation.

  15. i read the full study last night... now granted they where usin cissus, gte, b6 and b12, and i believe niacian. it kinda seemed like they where shilling a product, it seemed like a rather low dossage of everything used in the formulation... study did seem pretty cool on the ammount the people lost. however i can't wait to see what dsade found.

  16. If 1/4 tsp = 800 mg, what was the recommended dosage?

  17. FYI- usp's dosage is 1220 mg 3 times daily i believe. So probably 3-4 grams a day will do the trick. I do ~3 grams a day and have good results for my nagging shoulder/rotator injury

  18. Thanks for the feedback! You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to warnerve again.

    No problem. Forgot to mention that I usually only take one serving of about 1.5 grams on my off days and still having excellent effectiveness. Not sure if you were looking for joint health and/or cortisol supression or what but its a starting point.

    3,4- Dihydroxy benyl ethanol
    Piceatannol
    Palliadol
    Parthencissin A
    Quadrangularin A, B, and C

    I think the M&M thread is cissus for metabolic syndrome?? or something to that effect. The article sited is found here though

    http://www.oauife.edu.ng/faculties/p...y/sadesany.pdf

    The list above is what was referenced.

    This is great to hear. I have had all of that stuff in my cart since last week (minus NP brand stuff though).

    that would have been good for me a month ago, but thanks for adding that to the selection! Im sure alot of people will pick that up and your bulk powder line should be getting alot of well deserved attention. Keep it up NP!

  39. It's gone again?
