Cissus Quadrangularis Real Deal or Snake Oil?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created June 01, 2012 at 2:32 AM

Was just diagnosed w/a deteriorating disc in my low back. I'm a powerlifter, but the chiro said he was surprised that a lifter would have that. (I know. Most chiros tend to blame EVERYTHING on weight lifting.) Was researching remedies and came across cissus. I was wondering if anyone on here had any experience with it as it's kinda pricey. I'm also looking in to the HVBO/CLO combination as everyone seems to sing its praises when it comes to these types of things. Anyway. Cissus: real deal, or snake oil? And yes, I plan on working around the injury while I give it a chance to heal.

My chiro just told me i had deteriorating disk and make an appointment next week and we'll go over the x-rays. I guess we were out of time or something.

TO those asking, I'm guessing HVBO/CLO is high vitamin butter oil/cod liver oil. Guessing.

i'm a chiro, never heard of cissus, don't recognize the abbreviation hvbo/clo. if it is deteriorating and not herniated or bulging, you can work through the inflammation, the usual supplements like fish oil, Mg, etc will help. your chiro/nutritionist will have a good supplement plan to maintain and keep you busy, esp. if you compete, good luck

i just looked at my Yoli energy drink and it has Cissus Q, probably a low amount as the drink is $1.50 per serving

Yes. I'm talking about fermented cod liver oil and butter oil. Sorry, I've seen that so much I just thought it was the local lingo.

I'm 6 weeks in. Feeling pretty optimistic because I had a really tough fight 2 weeks ago. Shins,knuckles & wrist are all good. A 1st for me. Its worth a try but don't expect instant results.

What's HBVO/CLO?
