What is cellulite ?

Fight cellulite by getting rid of toxinsCellulite is essentially the result of fat cells, trapped toxins and water in the uppermost layers of the skin. Research suggests that cellulite is related to the female hormone oestrogen, which is why women suffer from it. All muscles in the body are covered with a padding of fatty, connective tissue, which varies in thickness, and is surrounded by a liquid, supplying nourishment and removing waste products. This fatty tissue is held in place by a network of fibers, and when the system works well, all waste products are removed, resulting in smooth body curves.

When the waste removal system starts to fail, waste products start building up, and the connective tissue becomes saturated with liquid, which becomes sluggish and is often inflamed and swollen.

Growing adipocytes (fat cells) destroys the network made by elastin and collagen fibers, which then thickens and hardens, forming hard pockets that puff up to produce the "orange peel" effect, sometimes pressing on nerve endings - making cellulite painful under pressure.

Cellulite can often form in postnatal women and those who take birth control pills because the body's waste removal system can't get rid of the enormous flow of estrogen in the body. Cellulite can also develop after an injury, where the circulatory system has been disturbed.

A sedentary lifestyle leads to hardening of the connective tissue, causing a dimpling of the skin.

To get rid of cellulite, you need to treat it consistently and break down the cellulite, detoxifying the body and changing your lifestyle to prevent a future build-up. The main ingredient to fighting cellulite is to get rid of the toxins, and make sure that no further toxins build up in your system and wastes are being eliminated efficiently.
