The banishing away of stores of fat is not an overnight success story. It requires time, patience and changes to your diet. But when you apply an anti-cellulite treatment to your body as part of a life-changing regime, you will be able to see incredible results over time.
So, what kind of ingredients are in anti-cellulite treatment? It’s important to read what’s on the side of the tub, pot or tube before you pin all your hopes on one particular product. The best anti-cellulite treatments should contain at least one of the following (our particular fave anti cellulite treatment from Guinot contains green tea which drains and smoothes).
Caffeine effectively reduces body fat by directly attacking the fat cells through a so-called decomposition lipolytic action. It increases metabolism, stimulates blood circulation and boosts healthy skin tissue.
This is an essential nutrient that is synthesized in the liver and kidneys, which increases the concentration of fatty acids in mitochondria, making them available to transform food into energy. L-carnitine also has anti-aging, reducing blood fat and improving cardiac function properties.
This compound is known to effectively burn cellulite by breaking down the fat cells. This compound activates enzymes that help to release stored fats in certain body parts.
Yohimbine is a chemical found in the bark of Yohimbe evergreen tree in Africa. This chemical is known to cure erectile dysfunction, work on weight loss and other health problems. As an ingredient in slimming creams, it is known to increase the breakdown of fat cells.
