How To Get Rid Of Cellulite Article
For many years cellulite was perceived as purely a cosmetic problem but in fact affects up to 85-98% of women and can be based on physiological factors such as pregnancy, hormonal changes, genetics, aging, gender differences in fat storage metabolism, structure of connective tissue, and also fluid leakage from small blood vessels.
As you can tell, this is a highly complex issue and simply using off the shelf creams will not be enough to combat cellulite.
To eradicate cellulite, you need to combine many different health disciplines such as regular training, including weight training three to four times a week. Walk as much as possible to get regular circulation and increase blood flow, sitting for long periods of time should be avoided.
Most women suffer from having estrogen dominance especially during childbearing ages, which is why regular weight training will increase progesterone and balance out your hormones and reduce fat storage.
As for nutrition, eating clean and lean with a diet based on protein and cruciferous vegetables such as kale, cabbage, cauliflower, bok choy, and broccoli are great because they give you a sensation of fullness and are also very good for estrogen metabolism.
Some research shows that glycrrhetinic acid derived from liquorice root will help fight stress related hormones such as cortiosol which is responsible for fat formation. Another supplement is horse chestnut, which helps with capillary leakage and improves circulation. Gotu kola can stimulate collagen synthesis.
If you are serious about reducing cellulite, you will need to stop consuming alcohol, or dramatically reduce alcohol consumption, as well as drinking a lot more water: up to 2 to 3 litres per day, and supplemented with Vitamin C.
Regular massage helps you with lymphatic drainage and increases blood flow in problematic areas and helps you to increase the density of loose skin.
Women who suffer with a high amount of cellulite tend to be lacking in vitamin D3, which also helps you sleep and relax and reduce your cortisol levels.
You can have contrast showers, alternating between hot and cold showers, on the problematic areas such as the bottom, the stomach and the thighs to improve circulation in these areas, followed by some self massage using your knuckles (as shown in the video) in longitudinal and circular motions with oils rich in Vitamin C and E and glycyrrhetinic acid derived from liquorice root.
