Description

Recent studies show that an extract of Cissus quadrangularis (syn. Vitis quadrangularis) aerial stems can help produce weight loss, lower blood glucose, and reduce total and LDL (bad) cholesterol in obese patients.1,2 Cissus quadrangularis is an indigenous medicinal plant of India in the grape family (Vitaceae) that has traditionally been used as an Asian culinary vegetable for curries and chutneys and as an herbal remedy in traditional Ayurvedic medicinal practice (where it is known as asthisandhana). Its standardized common name, according to the American Herbal Products Association, is winged treebine; other common names are bonesetter and Veldt grape.3
 
The results of one study were presented at the First World Congress on Therapies against Obesity, held May 18-19, in Paris.1 In that double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 68 obese participants received either 300 mg daily of a propriety extract of Cissus quadrangularis called Cissus CQR-300 (Soy Labs LLC, Fairfield, CA) or a placebo for 6 weeks. They were encouraged to maintain their normal diets and physical activities and to keep daily food and activity diaries. Participants in the Cissus CQR-300 group experienced an average weight loss of 10.6 pounds, compared to an average gain of 2.6 pounds among those taking the placebo.4 Those given Cissus CQR-300 also reduced their body mass index (BMI, 4.1%), fasting blood glucose levels (14.6%), total cholesterol (18%), LDL cholesterol (29%), triglycerides (21.6%), and fat metabolites (45.5%), in addition to increasing their HDL (good) cholesterol (21.1%), 5-hydroxytryptamine/serotonin (5-HT, 53.3%), and serum creatinine (23.5%). The placebo group experienced a small decrease in triglycerides (3.3%) and a moderate increase in 5-HT (17%). (Since this trial has not yet been published and subjected to formal peer review, it is possible that the values reported here may undergo revision, i.e., if this study is submitted for publication.)
 
The results of the second study were published in the September issue of Lipids in Health and Disease.2 This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial involved 123 overweight and obese participants, and was conducted over 8 weeks. The trial’s 92 obese participants were divided into 3 groups: one group was given placebo, another received 2 daily doses (514 mg each) of a Cissus formulation (containing Cissus quadrangularis, green tea [Camellia sinensis], soy, chromium, selenium, and B-vitamins, supplied by Gateway Health Alliances, Fairfield, CA), and the third group took the same Cissus formulation with a calorie-controlled diet. The 31 overweight participants formed a fourth group, and they took the Cissus formulation without a controlled diet. The participants in the placebo group lost, on average, about 5 pounds over the 8 week trial, whereas the overweight group lost 8.2 pounds, the obese group taking only the Cissus formulation lost 14.6 pounds, and the obese group on the formulation with diet lost 17.9 pounds. All 3 treatment groups experienced a decrease in triglycerides, C-reactive protein, and fasting blood glucose levels. Total cholesterol declined 5 mg/dl for the placebo group, 28.7 mg/dl for the overweight group, 43 mg/dl for the obese group on formulation/no diet, and 44.5 mg/dl for the obese group on formulation/diet. The authors conclude that, “Our results support the hypothesis that the use of a Cissus quadrangularis formulation has efficacy in the management of weight loss and metabolic syndrome, particularly for central obesity.”
