    So, two weeks is a good starting point, then? At two weeks, I am allowed to start bearing weight on my ankle, too.
    Yeah, I was told 2 weeks out would be good for Cissus. That's when I am going to start.

    Okay, thanks a lot, Dewey. I'll be good to start in about a week or so.

    Doing a search - came across this thread. Tore my hamstring about a week ago, is a grade 2 tear so will be 4-6 weeks of no running or leg workouts :S. I asked this in another thread and was told cissus would be effective for overall anti-inflammatory effect, but are there any supps which can increase muscular regeneration/healing time? Eating 200g of protein/day (I'm 168lb) and trying to get a decent amount of fruit and veg in for anti-inflammatory effects also, but wondering if there is anything that can speed things up. Alot of the products I see mentioned in this thread are for joint health so not sure how relevant this is to muscular healing.

    A grade 2 hamstring tear is more about giving it time than anything else. I agree that Cissus may help from am anti-inflammatory standpoint. I can't really think of anything else supplement wise that will make a huge difference in your recovery. Time and patience are your friends in this situation.

    You're really just going to be limited to rest and time.

    Yeah I pretty much figured. I am going to use some cissus xt and also purchased some joint force as per recommendations in this thread coupled with lots of stretching, hate not being able to do squats!!

    Just make sure you keep up with whatever light things you can do (at this point it's most likely light walking). Keeping active in any means possible (even if it's very slight) can help decrease overall recovery time along with proper rest and nutrition.

    Will do. What dosage of cissus do you guys recommend? I was reading around and 3g a day seems to be pretty popular?

    3g per day is perfect. I would dose two Cissus XT first thing in the AM and two more before bed. That's how I do it and it makes it very easy to follow a routine.
