    I have tendonitis in my foot and I can feel a big difference when I'm on and off cissus, it def helps decrease flare ups from happening, it's a great product, best usp labs product imo.

    I've been recently diagnosed with moderate to severe tendonitis in my elbow and have been taking it for the past month and don't notice anything yet. But they do say it takes a couple of months to feel the difference so we'll see.

    Yes, and no, it seems hit and miss for many. For those it does work on the effects subside after cessation in other words it's not a cure.

    I agree with the above, it definitely tends to be hit or miss. We have people rave about our Cissus product Osteosport and how it worked wonders for them, but also some who say it didn't really help as much as they would've like it to.

    In the end, the best thing is to se for yourself.

    It can be very useful for tendontis but may not work the same for all. I would also look into some Topical Celadrin ( there are actual studies on its effectiveness)

    When USP came out with the og Cissus Rx, I was having debilitating elbow tendonitis. I had actually stopped going to the gym, which is highly rare for me. So I decided to give it a shot. It was miraculous-- 100% effective, got me back in the gym.
    Then a couple years later, the problem resurfaced. USP had the new Super Cissus by then, so I bought some. It helped, but not nearly as much as the original stuff. I have no idea why.
    What I've learned about tendonitis is this: it's simply from overuse. You should take some time off to recover, and you must adjust your routines accordingly. For instance, I used to work back and biceps on the same day. Now I've actually split it into 3 different days: pullups/pulldowns on the same day I do shoulder presses; rowing movements on the same day I do bench presses; and biceps on my leg day. So I'm doing the same amount of work with my biceps, but it's spread over 3 days instead of 1. This helps immensely. Good luck.

    Agreed. Good advice. I had it real bad in my right elbow a few years ago. Couldn't do any of the free weight tricep exercises I used to always do without extreme pain. So I just made a mental note of all the exercises i did on a regular basis that caused pain, and just worked around them and supplemented other exercises in place of them.

    After about 6 months or maybe a little longer it went away. And I have been back to doing the heavy free weight exercises for a while now.

    Intersestingly enough, I WAS on cissus the whole time. It's a staple of mine.

    The human body is an amazing machine. At my age, with the injuries I've endured over just the last 2 years (strains/tears in my shoulder, upper back, neck, hip), I'm surprised I've healed so well. I'm pretty much pain-free and at 100% right now. Your body will tell you what it needs. Just learn to listen.

    Cissus has definitely helped relieve many of my joint issues, and the effects are noticeable within 2-3 days of starting usage of it. However, I have to dose extremely high to notice effects, and once I stop using it, my joint issues return, since it only relieves the symptoms and does not treat the cause. That's just me, though, and as has been reiterated throughout this thread, everyone is different, and therefore will have different experiences with the same product.

    I have tried USP labs original Cissus RX, another company brand's cissus and a generic bulk powder cissus from the UK. The only one that did anything to help my bad shoulder was USP's.

    So after reading over this looks like its hit or miss and as rosie said it masks the pain doesn't heal it, only thing that can really heal it is rest which isnt an option for me so looks like i'll mask the pain with cissus for a while see if it works then try something else since i already have Super Cissus RX en route for delivery today.

    You said you're a pitcher (I played ss, so I'm no expert). Spring Training is just starting. Were you throwing alot in the off season to get this tendonitis? If so, this is gonna be a looong year for you, bro-- I feel your pain. Is it only certain pitches that aggravate it? Have you had any smart guys look over your motion? Have you considered playing first base? JK, lol.
    Anyway, try the cissus, ice the crap out of it, and don't throw anymore than you have to. Good luck.
