    I had pebbles in my bulk Cissus


    Yup that is what I said...Pebbles!
    I was capping it last night and I there was something hard in there that woudlnt break up. I picked it up and thought damn that looks like a rock. So I washed it off and damn it was a rock!
    So I started digging around and found more. I took the powder to a strainer and I had about 50 or more pieces of rock in there. I ran it through a couple more times and at the top of the stack I could see sandy grit mixed in.
    Think I should cap it and take it anyhow or send it back for a fresh batch?

    Rocks? My bulk cissus had some small lumps that were easily enough broken up. Did someone get hold of your stuff and screw with ya? Not to question your integrity but something like this seems more in line with a incident at the house vs. it being packaged like that.

    I have kids at home so my first people to blame are them with my wife a close second

    USP, I got it from Nutraplanet! Do they grind this up in some sort of mill? Like old school stone mill or something? Maybe that is what it was. Like a goof I chucked the pieces in the garbage but like I said you can see the fine granules in the powder still.

    Jay...I took the seal off of the container and sat down with it to cap. My wife knows better than to mess with my supps! Hehe

    I bought 200 g and have been pulling the rocks out as I capped, too.

    I just figured that bulk cissus was just a bit more raw than the USPLabs capped cissus.

    Well I've noticed this on occasion too.. you are talking about the small brown things a lil darker than the rest of the powder right? I wouldn't really worry it.. I've seen it more than once..

    I noticed it also too...it was very hard and difficult to break, but dissolves instantly in water or in your mouth, so it's just densely clustered powder. No worries

    No this was rock material..I washed some of the bigger ones off because it was covered in the powder.
    Damn I wished that I hadn't tossed them I would have taken a picture. It definitely didnt desolve.

    I used to take bulk NP cissus before I got USP cissus. I agree that you did find rocks in it. I had the same issue. After I washed them off, some of them were shiny....definately rocks.

    Bump on this.

    Can we get a confirmation from an NP person on what these *rocks* actually are? I don't take cissus, but I have gotten other bulk products from NP and I don't want rocks showing up in the product.

    I think they were tiny chips off of deceased meerkats' teeth from India. They are known to be a strong anabolic/anti-catabolic compound according to USPlabs team of scientists.

    It's a built in shaker method. You just pour the powder into a liquid and it'll super mix the cissus. I pay extra for rocks you got yours for free

    All we have seen so far is hardened bits of Cissus...no pebbles. In order to bring the issue up to the supplier as specifically ROCKS, I will need some pictures.

    You know I actually dug through the garbage for you last night... which got me in serious trouble with the wife cause I got coffee grounds all over the floor. Anyhow I couldn't find them in the mess. Sorry but I did make the effort!
    Keep in mind I am not trying to stir up controversy...NP is the only supp store I buy from! Will continue to be that way. Regardless I am taking the rest of the Cissus because I am old and brittle! I just look at as extra minerals hehe
