Super Cissus: Joint Support AND Cortisol Inhibitor?

  1. Question Super Cissus: Joint Support AND Cortisol Inhibitor?


    I'm planning a Havoc cyle (my first PH cycle) in a few months. I see people using USP Labs' Super Cissus as both a joint-support supplement on cycle and then others taking it as a Cortisol-inhibitor during PCT.

    Can it be used both on-cycle and during PCT to effectively treat both issues? I experience mild joint discomfort during/after workouts as it is, despite Glucosamine and fish oil supplementation.

    Thanks!


  2. I've ran it on PH cycles before, and during PCT. As a matter of fact it's a staple supp of mine, I've taken it twice a day everyday for years now. It works much better than the basic glucosamine/chondroitin combo IMO. Never experimented with fish oil for joints personally, mine don't hurt THAT bad. Maybe because of the cissus...

    Yes, Cissus can be used on-cycle and during PCT - a great addition, actually, IMO.

    Agreed. Personal use Cissus and Omegas for my joint support, never got much out of Glucosamine and the anti-cortisol of Cissus is an added bonus

  5. Super Cissus is good stuff! I can tell a big difference when I forget to take it or if I run out. I used to take Animal Flex and Cissus blows it away. My mom even says its help with the pain from her arthritis. Its only $23 and a bottle will last you a while. I take 5 capsules every day but i'll bump it up to 8 or 9 when I get on my next ph cycle just for extra insurance.

  6. You can't even compare cissus to glucosanine/conjobdroitin/MSN. Cissus actually works.

    Its effects on cortisol are very minimal compared to its joint/tendons healing abilities. If your joint doscomfort is in a localized area then i HIGHLY recommend using NOW's topical Celadrin or Glucosamine~~you will find it to be more effective than any oral

  9. There is no evidence it has any effect on cortisol as far as I know. Is that true?

  12. "Anabolic and Androgenic activity:
    In addition to speeding the remodeling process of the bone, Cissus also leads to a much faster increase in bone tensile strength. In clinical trials Cissus has led to a fracture healing time in the order of 55 to 33 percent of that of controls. Cissus exerts antiglucocorticoid properties is suggested by a number of studies where bones were weakened by treatment with Cortisol and upon administration of Cissus extract the Cortisol induced weakening was halted and the healing process begun. [93]
    Endogenous Glucorticoids including the body’s endogenous hormone Cortisol activate pathways that degrade not only bone, but skeletal muscle tissue as well. Glucocorticoids induce muscle breakdown. They activate the so-called Ubiquitin-Proteasome pathway of proteolysis. This pathway of tissue breakdown is important for removing damaged and non-functional proteins.
    By exerting an anabolic, antiglucorticoid effect Cissus preserve muscle tissue during times of physical and emotional stress, which is of more interest to the average bodybuilder or athlete. [94]"
