Cissus quadrangularis Linn. is a traditional Indian herb with well-documented beneficial effects both on the joints and the underlying bone tissue1,2.*

Our extract provides a high concentration of ketosterones, which support optimum joint health and normal comfort in movement1.* Cissus consists of flavonoids (quercetin, daidzein and genistein), triterpenoids (friedelin), vitamin C, iridoids and phytosterols like β- sitosterol and calcium. Scientific studies demonstrate that cissus and boswellia constituents affect key enzymes involved in the maintenance of healthy tissues1,2-5,7,8.* Through these mechanisms, they may help support the state of comfort in the joints through the typical wear and tear of everyday life.* Due to the high concentration of vitamin C, Cissus quandrangularis Linn. is also known for its powerful antioxidant effect9.*
