Super Cissus RX by USPLabs review
This is just a generic review of Super Cissus RX that I tried out. I bought myself 2 bottles (90 pills for each bottle). I believe the cost was around 29.00 per bottle approx.
I've had bad tendonitis/joint pain lately, and heard about cissus' properties in helping the situation.
I started taking 5 pills/ED and have been till now.
Overall review: 8/10. Cissus helped reduce my tendonitis and some muscle pain. The keyword is: reduce. Cissus is not a mircle supplement, and its not an 'end all'. I need 5 pills everyday without exception in order to feel the effect I want to. Even at 3 pills/ED it is still not fully adequate for the effects I need towards my muscles/tendons. It is a decent supplement and has its benefits, but seeing that I go through an entire bottle in approx 2 weeks makes it impractical to me @ $29.99 per bottle. If it were cheaper with more pills I'd consider making it a permanent staple.

How does bulk Super taste? I find NP's regular bulk cissus to taste pretty good, actually, can easily be taken mixed with water, but would rather use USP's (they got quality sh*t).

lol cracks me up so many people dpown bulk powder..cap it!!!! it takes 10-15 minutes at the most..use 00 or if u want to fit a whole gram into a cap use 000..nutra sells the caps/scale/capmquik's in a package
now you used 5 caps a day which would be the anabolic dosge not the therapeutic dosage 2 caps 3 max is what you wanna run for therapeutic..more then that lowers cortiso which would be counterproductive to relieving joint pain

Most herb powders are VERY hygroscopic and they'll suck the moisture outta your throat, making for a very unpleasant experience. But yeah, I think it cissus tastes kinda good.
5% ketosterols. It's not quite as good as the original CissusRX but it's $10 and you can find it somewhere. Original CissusRX was freaking bomb I loved the stuff, but I'm still yet to try SuperCissus.Originally Posted by Britney Spears....er..I mean....ReaperX

Capping, parachuting, adding it to a shake or just downing it like a man...
...the bulk SuperCissusRX is a pretty good deal.
Glad to hear it helped with the tendonitis.

I'll probably pick up it in bulk next time and throw it in with my shake. It works even better combined with glucosamine.

Bulk supercissus is very unpleasant tasting, and is a real pain in the butt to ingest by adding to water. It has a very strong bitter taste which makes me gag, unlike the NP bulk cissus which as mentioned has a nice flavor to it. The bulk supercissus clumps up like crazy as soon as it hits water, or vice versa, and the clumps are pretty hard to break apart after. It's definitely a better idea to cap this one.

the link wojo put up is the supercissus...
parachuting is basically where you measure out your serving onto a small piece of a 1-ply tissue or there is a special kind of paper I can't think of off the top of my head and you wrap up the powder and twist the top and swallow it like a pill...

it's a method adapted from drug users...
it's really easy and pretty convenient...anykind of thing paper that will be easily digest will work.

I'll try it out. There are a bunch of different % of extracts of cissus. Does it really matter which % it is ?
08-21-2007, 02:54 PM
Hey Reaper, i found that at 2-3 caps a day to feel the joint relife it takes abuot 3 weeks to start working then its all good from there. Atleast for me it was.
Infact I was pissed after two weeks and I wasn't feeling anything but pain stil. Then subltey the pain went away and didnt have any shoulder/elbow problems from ball.

I agree cissus helps out which is why I'm trying to find out a more economical way of buying it. I think I'm going to buy a bulk tub from nutraplanet. It seems to help my overall recovery. I actually stopped using glucosamine since I started cissus.
08-21-2007, 03:05 PM
Just my opinion, but the lower% extracts are where it's at.
08-21-2007, 03:11 PM
can't they just make a blend of 5% and 20% ?
I figured it was the % extract that was tipping it towards theraputic or anabolic. PrimaForce sells some at 40%.
08-21-2007, 03:19 PM
I've seen extracts go all the way up to 50%, but we have to keep in mind that the people putting it out might not know exactly what this will do, but know that people will want to buy it.
08-21-2007, 03:36 PM
you have to remember that more isnt always better,i have used prima's cissus but only noticed body comp changes no realy joint pain relief..i have used usplabs super cissus at 2 caps a dy and noticed a lot of relief..i have 2 herniated discs in my neck on top of a few other fun injuries in my arms from 2 car wrecks.my mother who needs a double knee replacements also used super cissus at 2 caps loved it.she was getting shots in her knees to help with pain but they ahd stopped working,so i suggested supper cissus,she was shocked at it was the only thing helping her(my parent own a business and she jsut cant drop everything ot go out for surgery so she has been delaying it,so super cissus is a godsend)
08-21-2007, 03:57 PM
But, yes, the consensus seems to be that the lower % extracts are better for joint support.
Curiously enough - every one keeps claiming that it is the % that decides the joint support-anabolic effects ratio - still the directions on the Super Cissus Rx clearly say that the type of effects that you get depend on the amount - "take 2 pills and it will heal your joints, but take 4 and your muscles start popping up". Hmmm....
Also I have not seen similar claims about the reputed fat-loss and cortisol suppression properties of Cissus or is all Cissus good for increasing your metabolism and cortisol suppression?
Does anyone, btw, know about the anabolic effects Cissus can have on your body - I have read stories about Cissus reputedly increasing your test levels, but also estro levels and at the same time lowering the cortisol levels etc - anyone seen any studies on Cissus and how it might affect the hormonal levels?
08-21-2007, 04:04 PM
Yeah cissus is supposed to have an anabolic effect in a high enough dose, although I'm not sure what its specific mechanism for making you 'anabolic' is.
08-21-2007, 04:10 PM
I don't think there's just one specific mechanism. Pretty sure it's more like a small barage. Think of it like anabolic carpet bombing.
