Fluid Retention, Lymph, and Vascular Changes

The circulation to and from the cellulite area is involved in the very first changes that lead to cellulite. Once cellulite gets going the damaged connective tissue actually holds more water causing fluid pressure to build and further weaken blood vessel structures. Because these tiny blood vessels are inherently fragile, there is a reduced ability to get nutrition and oxygen to the skin and toxins and waste products out of the cellulite area.

To break out of this nasty catch-22 it is necessary to improve the integrity of the blood vessels and the function of your lymph system. Our best product that addresses both issues is Cardio Helper, although a variety of supplements can be used as needed depending on your overall health. Cardio Helper contains hawthorn berry which has bioflavonoids that nourish the blood vessels, as well as directly protecting them from the effects of stress (by modulating the enzyme neutrophil elastase). It also contains the herb horse chestnut whose special nutrients (standardized for 19-20% aescins) also strengthen the blood vessels and enhances the ability of veins to return blood to your heart (while helping to carry away toxins from the tissues). It has been shown to be as effective as support stockings at moving fluid out of your legs.*

If you are constipated you must move your bowels daily, as natural lymph flow and circulation from your legs is reduced by constipation, aggravating the pressure build up already occurring within cellulite. In general, a lack of dietary fiber can predispose you to cellulite formation by reducing your overall toxin clearing capacity. Even worse, if you are constipated your body cannot clear toxins as well which means you will start trying to use backup systems to clear them, and that means toxins will be directed at your skin to be removed through your pores and oil glands. To get there they travel through the very same circulatory system and tiny blood vessels that has been disrupted by cellulite. Once in the stagnant fluid of the cellulite area these toxins simply generate more free radicals, make cellulite worse, and really dry out your skin.

Another form of constipation occurs in your lymph system, and will also cause a backflow of pressure and unnecessary shunting of toxins towards your skin (and cellulite). The main lymph drains (thoracic ducts) are on either side of your spine in your upper back area. You can tell if you have this problem because you will have a stiff upper back that feels as if there is too much pressure in it. Sometimes this causes pressure-related headaches up the back of the neck, top of the head, or in the sinus area. Your lymph is most active while you sleep at night; a swelling lymph can push on nerves that cause a hand or arm to fall asleep while you are sleeping. If your lymph was not able to orchestrate a good job of house cleaning at night then you will feel gunky in the morning, often clearing significant amounts of mucous or congestion upon awakening. You either do or dont have such problems but if you have them they will seriously aggravate the lymph and fluid build up that is occurring within cellulite and, like regular constipation, need to be solved or cellulite will not clear. Stagnation is the overall enemy of your lymph system; refreshing exercise is its friend.

The proper flow of toxins is from tissues (such as the cellulite area), into lymph and veins, eventually to your liver, and then mostly into your GI tract and then out (lesser amounts go to your kidneys and out through urine). Any weak spot in this system causes a back up that aggravates cellulite. Obviously, improving these issues within your body has significant health benefits besides assisting the cellulite issue.

  • Fiber Helper

    Fiber Helper™provides a great source of three different soluble fibers that help absorb toxic waste products like a sponge. Many people do not get enough fiber because they do not eat enough fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Adequate fiber is essential for your bowels moving well and the final elimination of toxins – two important topics for preventing and improving cellulite.*

    Helps your liver clear toxins from your circulation and lymph system. Since your lymph system must dump waste products back into your blood on their way to your liver, if your liver can not clean the blood a backlog occurs.
