After all the hype and raving reviews on this product, I had to order it to see for myself if it really is a miracle for joint aches.
I was 2 weeks into a PH cycle when my joints dried out horribly and were constantly aching. I had ordered other joint support supplements, but had decided that I should go with Super Cissus
Taste/Pill Size : 9/10 - Obviously no taste with these pills, they are white and normal sized. I didn't get a bad aftertaste from burping after consuming them either.
Value : 4/10 - This is quite a pricey product. I bought 90 caps for close to $30. The dosing is 3-4 pills a day. But considering it didn't really do much for me, I wouldn't purchase it again.
Effectiveness : 5/10 - I don't know where to begin with this. I'm thinking perhaps what I was wanting out of this product wasn't realistic. Like I stated earlier, my joints were killing me, making it impossible to work out chest, shoulders, and arms in general. I've read on several forums that it really starts doing its magic around the 3rd week mark, but I didn't notice any improvement. At that point I starting taking other supplements for my joints and thats when things started to get better. I finished the bottle in a month, and assumed that it just wasn't for me. I think people who had prior injuries and have issues with their tendons or cartilidge in general are the ones who might benefit most from this. But what confuses me if how people claim that it did wonders for their joints. Maybe I didn't take it long enough, but I wasn't going to fork out another $30 just to prove that theory.
Overall : 6/10 - I would have given this product a worse rating, but the thing is my joint pain did eventually go away, but thats when I started adding Hyaluronic Acid and Multi-Flex Complete
in the mix, and I still currently take those two and do not suffer from any joint pain. So I'm sorry to say that this product just simply isn't for me.
