Cissus quadrangularis is also used as a supplement to fight against certain pathologies linked to our “modern lifestyle”: obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and high cholesterol levels. Namely, Veld Grape is also used in bodybuilding as an alternative to anabolic steroids. In short, this plant seems to have all the qualities! Here is everything you need to know in detail.
Benefits for the bones
In addition to its antioxidant, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, researchers have discovered that Cissus quadrangularis contains an ethanolic molecule with anabolic properties. Among other things, this molecule is capable of supporting bone health. Here are all the studies related to its properties: A study conducted on 60 fracture patients showed that taking CQ (Cissus quadrangularis) accelerates fracture healing and also causes early remodelling of the bone callus.
Beneficial for the stomach
Quadrangularis promotes the healing of gastric ulcers by promoting cell regeneration.
This property has also been studied in three studies in rats with aspirin-induced ulcers: C. quadrangularis extract reduced the size of the ulcer and restored the protective mucus layer.
Cissus quadrangularis reduced elevated levels of aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase, alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin.
Helps reduce hemorrhoids
The anti-inflammatory properties of the organic compounds in Cissus quadrangularis may help reduce swelling and inflammation throughout the body, but the most conclusive studies have focused on its role in treating or alleviating hemorrhoid symptoms. This painful condition is difficult to resolve, but there is a definite correlation between supplements of Cissus quadrangularis and the reduction of inflammation in this sensitive area14.
What are the side effects?
Because Cissus quadrangularis is an all-natural supplement, it is considered safe and side effects are rare. In clinical studies, most participants experienced no adverse effects. For those who did report side effects, they were mild in nature and included flatulence, headache and nausea.
It is not recommended to take extracts of this plant if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, as there is not enough information and research to confirm its safety.
If you are diabetic, talk to your doctor before taking it. Because it naturally lowers blood sugar levels, taking cissus quadrangularis at the same time as your diabetes treatment may lower your blood sugar levels.
