herbal ingredients of diet pills

In yet another edition of this continuing series of investigating the ingredients that are commonly used in diet pills, today I’m taking a look at Cissus quadrangularis, an herb that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine.

What powers does this herb have and why is it listed as one of the primary active ingredients in diet pills like Shredz Fat Burner? Continue reading below to find out.

Cissus Quadrangularis Health Benefits

There is a wide variety of uses of this medicinal herb beyond just weight loss. It has been tied to alleviating the symptoms and underlying causes of a number of health issues, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • High Cholesterol
  • Joint Pain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Dental Issues
  • Hemorrhoids
  • Menstrual Cramps
  • Metabolic Syndrome

Weight Loss

A study that was published in 2008 investigated the effect of this herb on weight loss. In these tests, the conductors split up a group of 72 participants into three groups. One took a placebo, a second took cissus quadrangularis, and a third took a blend of Cissus quadrangularis and Irvingia gabonensis (African Mango).

In relation to the placebo group, there was far more significant by those who took the cissus quadrangularis herb. They showed marked improvement in body weight, waist size, as well as cholesterol levels. Even more, the best results were experienced by the participants who took the combination of cissus quadrangularis and Irvingia gabonensis.

As both of these ingredients are found in Shredz, it’s no wonder it is such an effective diet pill.

Additionally, test subjects in the non-placebo groups also showed improvement in blood sugar levels and a reduction in risk factors of cardiovascular disease.

Bone Health

You’ll notice that osteoporosis is listed above in the health issues that this herb can help with. That is because this herb has been found, through studies conducted on rats, to increase bone thickness and density. In human testing, it has also been shown to promote the growth of osteoblasts, which are bone-forming cells.

Where to Find Cissus Quadrangularis

While it is available as a standalone supplement by itself, it is best to get your dose in a diet pill. In this form, it will be combined with other active ingredients to accomplish all objectives of a diet pill: raise your metabolism, provide energy, and suppress your appetite. As evident above, when combined with African Mango and other ingredients, the efficacy is much greater than when taken alone.

For my recommendation on a diet pill that contains this ingredient, I recommend Shredz Fat Burner. You can read my full review of Shredz on this page here:
