Cissus quadrangularis is an extract used historically in India for a variety of medical conditions. There are several potential bioactive ingredients in this extract including phytosterols and soluble plant fiber that could improve general health and weight loss. African researchers recently evaluated the weight loss effects of a formulation consisting of cissus quadrangularis, soy albumin, green tea extract, Chromium Picolinate, and B-vitamins. Overweight subjects were provided with the formulation and either given no dietary advice or a diet that was restricted in calories. In addition there was a placebo group. After 8 weeks, the placebo group lost 4.4 pounds, whereas the formula group with no dietary advice lost 14.5 pounds, and the formula group with caloric restriction lost 17.8 pounds. Both formulations groups also lost significantly more body fat and had greater reductions in total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose and C-ractive protein. These results are preliminary, but show very promising weight loss and metabolic improvements with a formulation containing cissus quadrangularis and green tea extract as the main ingredients.
