Cissus quadrangularis is a perennial plant of the grape family and is also known as Veld Grape. Perennial plants live for more than two years compared to shorter living plants (annuals and biennials) that complete their life cycle in less than two years. Cissus is native to India and Sri Lanka, but found readily in Africa and Asia.
Cissus quadrangularis has been used in Ayurvedic medicine as a general tonic and analgesic, with specific bone healing properties. The Ayurvedic (Sanskrit) term for Cissus is Asthisamharaka and it actually means “that which saves the bones from destruction.”
The beneficial effects of Cissus have been examined in a variety of research studies. Cissus can help the body maintain healthy joints and bones, and even provides antioxidant and recovery benefits!
