Product Notes:

Several enduring uses for Cissus Quadrangularis backed by research include helping bone fractures and certain joint injuries heal faster, relieving osteoarthritis, assisting with weight loss, and possibly helping manage diabetes by regulating blood sugar levels.

Apart from its Latin botanical name and certain variants of it (such as Cissus quadrangula and Vitis quadrangularis), Cissus quadrangularis goes by a dizzying array of names around the world, many of them based on either its shape or its uses, including Adamant Creeper, Asthisamharaka or Asthi Shrinkhala, Bone Setter, Devil's Backbone, Hadjod, Hadjjor, Harjor, Pirandai, Raisin de Galam, Square-stalked Vine, Vajravalli, Veld or Veldt Grape, and Winged Treebine.

Whatever you call it, this natural herb has numerous characteristics which can be of use to several bodily systems. In addition to having analgesic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, it contains many beneficial compounds and nutrients, some of which figure prominently into other natural health products used to help the immune system and combat aging, including: Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Carotenoids (Provitamin A), Flavonoids, Hydroxycitric Acid (or HCA, which may help suppress both the appetite and the enzyme which converts excess carbohydrates into body fat), Ketosterone, Phytosterols, Resveratrol, and Triterpenes.
