Information on cellulite

Fighting cellulite needs more than just simple massage, since massaging alone will not remove cellulite. To get rid of cellulite, you need to fight it holistically to regain your smooth curves.

General information on cellulite

A lot of people suffer from "cellulite build-up" which is really a toxic build-up, manifested in orange peel skin and cottage cheese thighs.

You don't even need to be overweight or fat to have cellulite - thin and slender people suffer as much from cellulite, as their heftier counterparts.

No matter how perfect or sexy your body - cellulite is unattractive  on anybody and does not contribute to the health of the collagen, elastin, connective tissues or adipocytes in your skin. The main remedy for fighting cellulite is to detoxify the body.


Getting rid of and fighting cellulite can be easy, but needs dedication and consistent work.

Miracle cures are offered from many sources to fight it, but there is NO miracle - yet it can be removed.

If you do NOT want to change your lifestyle - our Ageless Cellulite Gel will remove the cellulite on your body - but without lifestyle changes these cellulite lumps and bumps may return when you stop using the gel.

You need to treat cellulite, and to get rid of it for ever is to consistently break down the cellulite, detoxifying the body and changing your lifestyle to prevent a future build-up.

The main ingredient to fighting, remedy, cure and sorting out cellulite is to get rid of the toxins, and toxic build-up, and to make sure that no further toxins build up in your system and that wastes are eliminated properly.

Detoxifying the body is vital when starting anti-cellulite treatment and therapy.

When detoxifying the body, all the toxins must be removed to enable the body to once again function properly, getting rid of the waste products that build up when oxidation takes place in the body. These toxins clog up your healthy body, forming cellulite.

To detoxify, fight and remedy cellulite is a process to go through, and a couple of areas need attention to achieve an anti-cellulite, toxin free body, brimming with health and vitality and to be the picture of the ageless, anti-aging body.

Also have a look at our diet info, on carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins and minerals.

Remember you are fighting cellulite, where detoxifying the body is most important, and then keeping the body detoxified.

Where do you find cellulite on your body

Regular fat can be found anywhere on the body, while cellulite tends to settle on the following areas

  • inner, upper and back of thighs
  • upper back below the shoulders
  • ankles
  • inside and back of upper arms
  • buttocks
  • lower back
  • hips
  • stomach

Where cellulite is present you might also experience further problems with broken blood vessels and/or varicose veins.

How to know if you have cellulite

Press tissue between your thumb and finger, or between the palms of your two hands and if it is "normal" fat it will appear smooth, with no ripples or bumps but if you have ripples or bumps which look like "orange peel" -you have cellulite. When pressing the tissue together, it will be sensitive when cellulite is present.

Cellulite - how is it formed?

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 this "covering" with nourishment and removing waste products.

There are some medical practitioners that do not believe in the term "cellulite", but there are others that do subscribe to the term and the condition.

This fatty tissue is held in place by a network of fibers, and when the system works well, all waste products are removed from this system – 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 then thickens and hardens – forming hard pockets that puff up to produce the "orange peel" or "cottage cheese" effect.

Contributing factors

The following are contributing factors in causing cellulite:

  • Insufficient water intake
  • Little or no exercise
  • Constipation and digestion problems
  • Tension and stress
  • Pollution
  • Incorrect breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Poor eating habits
  • Hormonal cycles

Cellulite and toxin build-up

Our bodies eliminate waste efficiently, but if a problem occurs with proper elimination, cellulite can be the result. This inefficiency of the system to cope with the "poisoning" of our bodies is normally caused by excessive indulgence and an incorrect life style.

The following should be kept under control:

  • alcohol
  • coffee and tea
  • spices
  • cigarette smoking
  • crash diets
  • fat and cream
  • fried and oily food
  • over-the-counter medication such as:
    • diet liquids and pills
    • stimulant (pep) pills
    • sleeping medication and
    • diuretic (water) pills

Who gets cellulite?

Cellulite appears normally from around the age of 14, but can happen at any age, and although cellulite is not hereditary, you might be more prone to cellulite because of acquired bad habits from your parents.

Cellulite sometimes appears after pregnancy, (or when taking birth control pills), when the system is flooded with estrogen, or after a traumatic experience, since it interferes with blood circulation, or it can be simple toxin buildup, as listed above.

Although largely a feminine problem, men can also have cellulite, and normally get it on their stomach and neck areas.

What must happen to get rid of cellulite

In order to recapture your previous smooth body contours, you need to loosen the trapped waste materials from the tissue and effectively remove these wastes from the body, while returning the connective tissue to normal elasticity.

In the dermis and hypodermis, adipocytes (fat cells) store the triglycerids (fatty contents) absorbed through meals. Adipocytes are spread all over all over the body and accumulate in certain areas. This storage is made in preparation of starvation periods. Adipocytes will then release triglycerids in the form of fatty acids and glycerol.

The connective tissue and skin is irrigated through the capillary network in order to bring the indispensable components to the tissue and to regulate body temperature.

As starvation periods are rare, the body stocks triglycerids in excess and we gain weight.


Adipocytes increase in size and number and so create cellulite:

  • They press on blood vessels, capillaries and the lymphatic system, reducing the exchanges in the connective tissues;

  • They stock a higher amount of triglycerids enlarging their size. This increases poor circulation and accumulation of liquids due to reduced lymphatic drainage.

When this happens, wastes, toxins and liquids accumulate and the connective tissue becomes sluggish and is often inflamed and swollen. Growing adipocytes destroy the network made by elastin and collagen fibers and they press on nerve endings - making cellulite painful under pressure or during exercise.

Cellulite - different types

Hard or solid cellulite can sometimes be difficult to identify right away, as it sticks to the muscle structure, and does not lift away very easily. This type is very common on active people, such as dancers.

Soft cellulite is not as concentrated as hard cellulite but occupies large areas, is looser and more noticeable as it hangs and sags. Soft cellulite is less firm than hard cellulite, but soft cellulite results in poor muscle tone, and the skin dilates easily.

How to fight cellulite

In order to fight cellulite a person must pay attention to the following points:

  • Diet
    • Following a purifying diet and avoid foods that would contribute to toxic buildup. More on diet...
  • Breathing
    • In order to facilitate proper oxygenation of the blood and to assist the lungs in removing toxins, proper breathing must be followed. More on breathing...
  • Exercise
    • Doing exercise stimulates circulation and speeds up the metabolism, improving muscle tone and firming of tissue. More on exercising...
  • Proper elimination of waste
    • The skin, (the largest organ), kidneys and intestines must be able to get rid of toxins.
    • If you have a problem with constipation it must be addressed immediately, as constipation is one of the major causes of cellulite. To remedy the problem with constipation do NOT use laxatives that will irritate the colon, but rather opt for stool bulking products, such as psyllium husks to do the job - they do not irritate, nor do they cause laxative dependency and can be used daily. For a healthy herbal remedy look at our product catalogue.
    • The kidneys can be assisted by increasing your fluid intake and thereby increasing volume of urine.
    • The skin should be boosted by sweating and perspiration, to assist in elimination of wastes.
  • Relaxation
    • In order to get the entire body working correctly, stress must be reduced with your body as well as mind being in sync. More on relaxation...
  • Massage
    • With massaging, the cellulite areas are targeted to stimulate circulation, specially for areas not very well worked with exercise, such as the inside of the knee and upper thigh. More on massaging...

It is a further boon if the massage is performed with our Herbal Cellulite Gel which contains various active ingredients, as well as a patented ingredient remove as well as prevent cellulite.

Although the active ingredients in our Herbal Cellulite Gel will help in the fight against cellulite, because of the synergistic mix of ingredients, it is mild enough, because of the herbal nature, not to cause any discomfort.

Our gel also need not be massaged in - you can simply apply it to the area in question, twice a day.


Information on diet

  • Avoid processed and refined foods -rather opt for fresh, wholesome natural foods instead of canned or convenience foods.
  • Limit salt intake as sodium tends to increase water retention. Limit coffee intake and rather opt for herbal teas or clear clean water.
  • Avoid all processed meats (including smoked meats and fish), pork, crisps, chips, salted nuts, chocolate, sweets and pastries, carbonated drinks, dips, gravies and the like.

  • Limit starch (like bread etc) intake -especially if you are overweight or tend to pick up weight easily.

  • Eat fresh fruit and vegetables every day at each meal, with fish and meat only once a day.

  • Choose food for its nutritional value, not the taste alone.

  • Eat slowly and chew your food well. Stick to regular meal times and do not snack in between.

  • Give your liver a break with a bland diet that is easy to digest - even for a short period of time - just to get your body functioning correctly again.

  • Do not drink liquids at mealtime but ensure adequate water intake during the day.

Tips on food buying and preparation

  • Buy the leanest meat and never eat fat or skin of poultry.
  • Avoid sauces and gravies.
  • Broil or roast meats if possible.
  • Broil or bake fish.
  • Eggs should only be boiled or poached and never fried.
  • Eat as much fresh salad as possible, limit, or rather cut out commercial salad dressings. Rather use a bit of oil, mixed with vinegar or lemon juice as dressing.
  • Cook vegetables for short periods only, or steam them.
  • Eat fresh fruit as much as possible and stay away from canned fruit, which was tinned in heavy syrup.
  • Buy and eat only low fat cheeses and yogurt without any preservatives.
Remember you are busy with a "cleansing" diet. Not all people with cellulite are over-weight, although a lot of over-weight people have cellulite. The whole idea when fighting cellulite is to eliminate toxic waste and build-ups from your body.

So, drink plenty of liquids to help flush the system, and also ensure that you have regular bowel movements. To keep your bowel movements regular, without using laxatives, have a look at a more natural way to keep regular by using our Herbal Digest capsules.

Remember - purification is the keyword in fighting cellulite, not weight-loss.

Keep your liver in mind -this overworked organ needs a break to rejuvenate.

To help the process along we suggest that you consider adding powdered brewer's yeast to your diet. Powdered brewer's yeast is not pleasant tasting but does help a lot and can be made a bit more palatable by taking it in some vegetable juice. One to two teaspoons in a glass of juice at least twenty minutes before a meal will be more than enough.

Food can be divided as follows:


Dietary proteins are the basic building block of all living tissue, and are made up of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen and are broken down to amino acids during digestion. Proteins are needed for the building and repairing of tissues.

Twenty two of the amino acids contained in protein are needed for life and while some of them can be synthesized by the body, 8 of them, called essential amino acids, must be supplied in adequate quantities through our diet. A "complete protein" food contains all 8 essential amino acids.

Most complete proteins are derived from animal sources, such as milk (fresh or powdered), yogurt, cheese, meat, fowl, fish. For vegetarians, it is important to note that complete proteins are present in soy beans, dried brewers yeast, certain nuts and wheat germ. Incomplete proteins lack certain essential amino acids and are found in products such as dried beans, flour, cereal, lentils etc.


Dietary carbohydrates (as well as fats) are the sources of energy needed to keep us going. They are mainly derived from plant foods and are broken down during digestion into simple sugars - glucose, fructose and lactose.

High quality starches and sugars are found in brown rice, fresh fruits, dried fruit, vegetables, whole grain bread, honey, un-sulfured molasses, etc. and supply quick energy to the body. Avoid empty calories such as candy, chips (crisps), soft drinks, pastries, etc. as they can be stored as unwanted fat.


Dietary fats are concentrated energy substances, and produce a lot of energy when oxidized. In order for fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamins A, D, E and K, to be absorbed properly, fat has to be present in the diet.

During digestion fat is broken down into glycerin (glycerol) as well as fatty acids. Although the body can manufacture most fatty acids even when no fat is ingested, there are 3 fatty acids, called essential fatty acids, which need to be taken in the diet to ensure optimum health. These are: linoleic acid, linolenic acid and arachidonic acid.

The best sources for these essential fatty acids are pure vegetable oils such as safflower, soybean, sunflower, corn, cottonseed and wheat germ. Margarine and butter supply very little essential fatty acids, although butter contains a good amount of vitamin A.


Vitamins help to regulate body processes and help us to properly utilize the food we ingest. A shortage of vitamins prevents maximum health and can result in fatigue, nervousness, irritability etc. While the greatest amount of vitamins is obtained from our diet, the body can manufacture some.

Vitamin A

Vitamin A is derived from carotene and is essential for a good skin, vision, as well as strong bones and teeth.

The best sources are tomatoes, dark green leafy vegetables, deep yellow vegetables (such as carrots), fish liver oil, liver, butter and milk.

Vitamin B Complex

Most of the B complex vitamins are found in dried brewers yeast and wheat germ.

These vitamins are separate vitamins, but are grouped together as they work in synergy and help with the functioning of the nervous system, food utilization, tissue activity, as well as the forming of red blood cells.

The B complex range is made up of:

  • B-1 thiamine
