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

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

You need to take the issue up with NutraPlanet. THey do not sale USPlabs bulk cissus but thier own brand of 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

And there ya have it

02-14-2007, 06:46 PM
Found them but they squished in my hand

yea, i noticed some in my cissus also, but I think I could break mine up. the cissus was still effective though.

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.

I got some bulk CEE the other day and noticed it had bam bam in it.

I buy bulk from NP a lot.
I would like it if someone from Nutra would chime in here...

I'll have dsade contact the supplier and see what they have to say about it. Will keep you gentlemen posted...

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.

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
