Cissus quadrangularis extract (Standardised to Ketosteroids 40%) – 500mg
CISSQUAD is the brand name for Cissus quadrangularis extract tablets. Cissus possess strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. This herb possesses potent analgesic effects. It is assumed that cissus works by preventing the synthesis of prostaglandins that are associated with pain and swelling during inflammation. Cissus supplements primarily support the healing of broken bones and injured tendons and ligaments. Apart from this, Cissus also promotes weight loss, lowers “bad” cholesterol levels and relieves joint pain.
When it comes to its bone-enhancing properties, cissus acts on the bone and muscle injuries by making the blast cells respond at a faster rate and promote faster recovery. Cissus supplements also enhance the retention of essential nutrients like calcium, phosphorus, collagen and mucopolysaccharides and provide the building blocks for tissue repair. This herb also triggers collagen synthesis which is essential for bone remodeling and bone repair.
During joint inflammation, inflammatory mediators like cytokines and neutrophils are released that lead to pain and swelling in the bones, tendons and ligaments. Cissus reduces inflammation by decreasing the levels of these inflammatory mediators. The anti-glucocorticoid properties of cissus prevent the damage that is caused to the bones and muscles due to glucocorticoids like cortisol.
