    The thing with Cissus is it seem to one of those supplements like CEE it works for some yet for others does sod all. One thing that all say it's the taste... Really bad, I got used to it and just drop the powder in my mouth then wash it quickly before it stuck to anywhere in my mouth or throat.

    The reason why cissus is so hit and miss is that the bulk supply companies in the UK sell in in such low strength that you need to take loads to get any benefits.

    Cissus does work, but only in high even concentrations.

    Different strengths do different things. Low strength, 10% and below, is good for helping with tendon problems; I had a shoulder which clicked when doing certain exercises and after running cAMPHIBOLLIC the problem completely cleared up, and that was over a year ago now. At a higher strength Cissus becomes anabolic, and I recently ran Cissus-Drol which has a 40% strength extract in it, and I gained 5lbs.

    As mentioned above, not everyone responds to Cissus. Or it could be that because you don't "feel" it working you assume it's doing nothing. Either way, I like it

    I'm not sure you are right.

    The anabolic question is a theory and remain unproven.

    The concentration or strength of an ingredient is more to do with the reduction in volume you need to take before experiencing the required effect. Quite simply 50% cissus is five times as effective as 10%, so you can redcue the quantity taken accordingly.

    Plus, the more concentrated/pure the compound the better as one does not want too many impurities floating around.

    Regardless of that, cissus works very well!

    Simon is right.

    Dont bother buying the weak rubbish from the likes of Myprotein and the other bulk supplyers in the UK. Go to the states and get 5x stronger stuff in capsule form for the same money! Go figure!

    With regards to the first part of your statement regarding the anabolic properties; I know there is a debate about this, however, for me at least I believe it is indeed anabolic at a higher dose/strength. I've ran it a couple of times and have noticed its different effects, at the different strengths.

    As for the second part, it's what I meant. Higher strength/less of a dose. The 10% one was recommended to be taken at something like 10gs-20gs a day for the anabolic effects, whereas the 30/40/50% ones don't need anywhere near as much. That said, it's unlikely you'll get the tendon healing properties from that strength, only the anabolic properties.

    I've used two different products containing Cissus, which I bought for niggling joints. One worked, and the other one not so well...As stated, I guess its all down to the % you consume.

    Well in all honesty I didn't know what to expect from it. I didn't buy the whole night time thermogenic bit (this was the first USP product I ever ran), and I really only took it for the joint support properties. At the time I didn't really understand it was the Cissus which did it. My left shoulder used to click when doing certain exercises. A while back I was doing dips and I'm not 100% sure what happened, but it felt as tho whatever goes over your shoulder popped out of place. I was in agony. My shoulder wasn't dislocated but it didn't feel right. Someone at the gym ran over and did something to my arm and it seemed to click back. Ever since then my left shoulder would click, usually doing lateral raises and db shoulder press. It didn't really "hurt" as such, it was more an uncomfortable feeling. Anyway the cAMPHIBOLLIC completely stopped the clicking, and that was over a year ago and it's still fine. I also had better deeper sleeps while on it, it seemed to calm me down. I sometimes suffer from an overactive mind which keeps me awake at night, this seemed to help me get to sleep quicker, and I felt fresher the next morning.

    Im with FS Im a lover of Cissus drol caps.

    Cissus Drol gave me some awesome focus and aggression in the gym especially during my cardio which was great.

    I did run x-lean along side it but dropped 0.54% bf and my strength went up.

    I used the CD at 3 caps per day for the first 2 and a bit weeks but upped to 6 per day for the last 4 days if I remember rightly. I would say I was happy running at the 3 caps per day and did not notice much of a difference running double the dose but then I don’t think I ran it high enough for long enough.

    Good stuff imo.

    I had a problem with my right shoulder once it just happened after about three days after training, wanted someone to just cut it off, I could not lay down, not could I lift my arm above my hips without not so much pain as I was on anti-e's coz coz of a stupid GP but there was no strength in the whole side. When I phoned a physio (private) she said she knows what it is and she said when I seen her she will pop it back in. Now I can feel it click plus the fact that my right bicep is larger than the left one and weaker (weird or what), whenever I go above certain weight I tend to lift my right shoulder. Super dosing Cissus helped me with a tendon(s)niggles in my elbows they are still there but to the extend they were few years ago, maybe cAMPHIBOLLIC could help with my problem shoulder, how many bottles did you get one or more?

    I just bought the one mate. And as for a good high strength cissus product, Cissus-Drol sold on extremesupps contains a 40% extract, along with some other goodies; very good supp!
