Ultra Cissus Quadrangularis 50%

Please Note - Ultra Cissus is BSD's new Cissus Product which supercedes the previous 100x400mg. Our new Ultra Cissus has a staggering 800mg of Cissus Quadrangularis per capsule, that is double the amount of Cissus per capsule!

Cissus quadrangularis, aka Veldt Grape and commonly referred just as Cissus, is a perennial climber used on Ayurvedic medicine to speed recovery from bone fracture, relieve gastric disorders, as an analgesic and an anti-inflammatory. Currently there are more features associated to Cissus quadrangularis like anti-glucocorticoid, anti-catabolic, anti-lipase, anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties, making it not only a good choice for those who are looking for a supplement to relieve joint pain and connective tissue problems but also for those who are interested in a supplement capable of giving help in the process of increasing muscle mass and/or reducing body fat.

There are several active substances in Cissus responsible for its benefits: phytosterols (like beta-sitosterol), vitamin C, calcium, carotenes (like provitamin A), amyrin (a specific saponin), amyrone and flavonoids (quercetin). Some of the features of Cissus are not yet fully understood, so there may be more active substances yet to be discovered in Cissus.

A couple of properties showed by Cissus are similar with Resveratrol, another great supplement. Both exhibit anti-oxidant properties capable of increasing AST and ALT values as well as being natural anti-inflammatories. In the case of Cissus the analgesic activity is achieved on both neurogenic pain as well as peripheral (inflammatory) pain. Analgesic properties on neurogenic pain are due to central analgesic activity, like opioids. Peripheral analgesic activity (anti-inflammatory activity) is believed to be due to COX-2 inhibition, also like opioids and NSAIDs, though there was no protein synthesis inhibition and no gastric disorders unlike some NSAIDs (Cissus it is capable of relieving gastric disorders). Along with analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, Cissus has also bone and connective tissue healing properties which make it a good option to use when there's a need not only for pain relief but also for an increased healing.

Cortisol is a steroid hormone that belongs to the glucocorticoid class of steroid hormones and is capable of inhibiting protein synthesis and stimulate amino acid degradation (among other things). For this reason, excessive cortisol can be conterproductive to those seeking to increase muscle mass. Moreover, cortisol rises with stress and after strenuous exercise, which are situations that athletes have to deal with frequently. Cissus is capable of interacting with the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) by binding to it and acting as a GR antagonist, avoiding cortisol to bind to the GR and thus reducing cortisol's negative effects and positively influencing muscle mass development.
