    Who has Joint, ligament or tendon related pain like tendonitis or rotator cuff problems. I will be gifting some Cissus RX for test purposes.

    Those interested in relieving your pain please do apply and describe your condition.

    Thank you
     
  2. I get my ass kicked at Ju-Jitsu class, and then I walk funny because I am sore.

    I don't know.

    I don't even think the flintstone multivitamins are even FDA approved.

    I've just started taking TKE Joint Boost for my BJJ pains. My left knee is starting to act up so I may need to see a doctor but I'm going to give the TKE a couple weeks.

    Right shoulder, both elbows and right ankle from juijitsu. The shoulder is from gymnastics, but fighting sometimes aggrivates it.

    I'll try it, and give as much of an objective opinion as possible. Assuming that is what you are looking for ;)

    I have tendonitis in my elbows. I tried everything but the only thing that seemed to help is Hyaluronic Acid. It is a product called Synthovial Seven. Now I started taking this and at the same time stoped working out and BJJ. My eblows feel much better but I am not sure if it has anything to do with HA, or due to the time off and just resting my elbows. It has been a little over 3 weeks now.

    Hmmm...I'm not entirely sure it was.

    I think they had ample reason to ban it; there were over 800 deaths linked to it. I understand that probably some of the pressure on ephedrine wasn't purely scientific, but I don't think it was banned only because of the drug war on meth. Otherwise, they wouldn't have reversed that ban.

    Give them credit. The early studies suggested it was too dangerous for over-the-counter use. Recent studies link the serious side effects of ephedrine to users with pre-existing heart blockages; that's why it's been made legal again.

    The ban is not reversed. One Judge in Utah overturned the ban only for anything containing less than 10mg of Ephedrine, which in my store was pretty much nothing, everything I remember had 15 or more. Plus it's still in litigation where the FDA has to prove to the Supreme Court (or appeals court, I can't remember) that things containing less than 10mg are a direct danger, but meaning all is not clear for companies to go ahead and adjust all their products to sell it at a lesser strength. And this is ONLY in Utah. The companies who have begun selling it over the Internet are running a risk at the moment, but for these reasons it's not and likely won't be back on store shelves as a regular item. The FDA still has grounds to say the ban is in full effect for every other state but Utah.

    the problem w/ the ban is ephedra replaced more dangerous ingredients in certain drugs. ephedra was not just a supplement but a better alternative also. even if it killed people,t hose people are idiots for overdosing it.

    I'm pretty sure ephedrine is only banned for use in weight loss. I can still find it in my local corner store as a bronchial decongestant.

    CISSUS
    A healing phenomenon

    Leverage performance science supplements will always be supported by science and qualified research. We are happy to provide you with scientific and technical details as well as explain what each product will do for you in terms we can all understand.


    THE SCIENCE
    Cissus quadrangularis is an ancient medicinal plant native to the hotter parts of Ceylon and India. It was prescribed in the ancient Ayurvedic texts as a general tonic and analgesic, with specific bone fracture healing properties. Modern research has shed light on Cissus' ability to speed bone healing by showing it acts as a glucocorticoid antagonist (1,2). Since anabolic/androgenic compounds are well known to act as antagonists to the glucocorticoid receptor as well as promote bone growth and fracture healing, it has been postulated that Cissus possesses anabolic and/or androgenic properties (1,3). In addition to speeding the remodeling process of the healing bone, Cissus also leads to a much faster increase in bone tensile strength. In clinical trials Cissus has led to a fracture healing time on the order of 55 to 33 percent of that of controls. That cissus exerts antiglucocorticoid properties is suggested by a number of studies where bones were weakend by treatment with cortisol, and upon administration of Cissus extract the cortisol induced weakening was halted, and the healing process begun.

    While the increased rate of bone healing may be of great significance to persons suffering from chronic diseases like osteoporosis (4), the antiglucocorticoid properties of Cissus are likely of much more interest to the average bodybuilder or athlete, since endogenous glucocorticoids, particularly cortisol, are not only catabolic to bone, but catabolize muscle tissue as well. Numerous studies over the years have suggested that glucorticoids, including the body's endogenous hormone cortisol activate pathways that degrade not only bone, but skeletal muscle tissue as well. A recently published report documented exactly how glucocorticoids (including cortisol) induce muscle breakdown: They activate the so-called ubiquitin-proteasome pathway of proteolysis (5). This pathway of tissue breakdown is important for removing damaged and non-functional proteins. However, when it is overactive during periods of elevated cortisol (e.g disease states, stress, and over-training) excess amounts of normal tissue are broken down as well. By exerting an anabolic, antiglucorticoid effect cissus helps preserve muscle tissue during times of physical and emotional stress.

    Although the bulk of the research on Cissus centers around bone healing, the possibility exists that Cissus may act to improve bone healing it may improve the healing rate of connective tissue in general, including tendons. If this is the case it would be of great benefit to bodybuilders and athletes.

    Besides the above-mentioned properties of Cissus, the plant is also rich in the vitamins/antioxidants vitamin C and beta-carotene. As analyzed, Cissus quadrangularis contained ascorbic acid 479 mg, and carotene 267 units per 100g of freshly prepared paste in addition to calcium oxalate (6).

    The typical recommended daily dosage of Cissus is 3 to 6 grams to accelerate fracture healing. Safety studies in rats showed no toxic effects at dosages as high as 2000 mg/kg of body weight. So not only is Cissus efficacious, it is also quite safe, in either the dried powder form or the commercially available extract.

    Cissus also possess analgesic properties on a mg per mg basis comparable to aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen. Cissus quadrangularis, which has been proved to be highly effective in relieving pain, reduction of swelling and promoting the process of healing of the simple fractures as well as in curing the allied disorders associated with fractures (7). The mechanism through which Cissus exerts its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties has not been well characterized. It may act centrally, but the anti-inflammatory features suggest that it acts by preventing the conversion of arachidonic acid to inflammatory prostaglandins.
    Real World Application for injuries

    Simply if your suffering from Joint pain, Ligament pain, cartilage pain, had surgery on bone, ligament or cartilage, Cissus is the supplement to use. It has been my experience that many grapplers take anti-inflammatory medications to fight through the pain. Ultimately, these medications only kill the sensation of pain not the symptom. Cissus has the ability to kill the pain specific to the injury while promoting healing.

    Some users will get instant relief and other will need to use Cissus for much longer period of time for complete healing of an injury. Leverage performance science is not claiming that Cissus will work 100% percent of the time that would be a foolish claim. We have estimated that 85% of user experience relief from our product. This number may lower or rise as more consumers send in reports. In the PHARMACUETICAL industry a 50% success rate is good. Since we talking about the Pharmaceutical industry, they have yet to produce a product that helps the healing process. They just develop pain medications that are often addicting.

    THE OTHER SIDE EFFECT IS ANABOLIC!
    Cissus is anabolic and anti-catabolic!!! Cissus users report a "PUMP" that we call the Cissus pump. The PUMP effect becomes prevalent at approximately 10-15 days of continous Cissus use. The "PUMP" is due to the increase of blood flow to the muscle. The Cissus pump will have you flexing your muscle for no apparent reason. This is when you know the product has exerted its effect.

    Cissus is a powerful natural anabolic; if not the most powerful natural anabolic on the market. Why would a grappler need it? An Anabolic and anti-catabolic substance allows for faster recovery from exercise, from injury, increase in muscle strength, and stamina. In short, you will be able to train longer and recover faster without the negative effects of anabolic steroids.

    Cissus is also an ideal product to use in conjuntion with cAMPED for dropping weight. Imagine decreasing bodyfat while simultaneously retaining your strength and preserving muscle mass while on a calorie restricted diet! The combined effects of Cissus and cAMPED become a powerful tool for any competive grappler!


    WARNING
    If using Cissus to heal injury related pain, you may experience instant relief due to its analgesic (pain killing) effect . This does not mean the injury has completely healed! Please continue your training regimen with extra caution until full recovery has been achieved. On the contrary, if using Cissus primarily for its Anabolic properties your training program should be continued with maximum intensity to reap the full benefits of this product.

    What up bro. Yeah, I am feeling much better. I guess I just needed to totally drop everything and give them a rest. This is the best my elbows have ever felt in about 3 to 4 months. Rest and streching is all I have been doing.

    Starting next week I will beging to lighting lift to strengthen the tendon so it wont happen again.

    Take care.
