I've done a couple of 8 week runs of Cissus at around 3 grams a day, and I've noticed that while on my strength goes through the roof! I don't think it due to pushing myself because of lack of injury there is definately some hormonal component to this. I did do some research, and a few others have said similar things, but I wonder if anyone else is getting huge strength increases due to cissus. I'm using the powder, it tastes awful but it is cheap and well worth it for the joint aches alone. Anyone else getting this at all? I've done a little experimenting 1.5g at least for myself makes my shoulders and back feel better but I don't get the strength gains that I do at 3g.
