Collagen Peptides Improve Cellulite
Cellulite affects up to 90 percent of women at some point in their lives. There is no quick fix and creams simply don’t get to the root of the issue. New research shows that it is possible to improve cellulite from within by supplementing with certain types of bioactive collagen peptides.

What Causes Cellulite?

There are several issues that contribute to a person developing cellulite. Since 90 percent of women and only 10 percent of men experience cellulite, there is clearly a connection between estrogen and cellulite. Men who get cellulite typically have low androgens (such as testosterone). Fluid retention/ lymphatic stagnation, fatty acid build-up, inflammatory tissue stress, and a break-down of the connective tissue under the skin all play a role in cellulite.

How to Improve Cellulite from Within

In addition to exercising and following The Five Rules of the Leptin Diet, research supports the use of supplemental bioactive collagen peptides to stimulate healthier collagen production in order to improve cellulite. A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study with 105 women 25 to 50 years old showed that that a dose of 2.5g of VERISOL collagen peptides reduced the waviness of skin after 3 months with even more pronounced results after 6 months.

Collagen peptides are recognizable by fibroblasts (carpenter cells that make new collagen) in the dermal (deep) layer of skin as broken collagen strands. This signals the body to repair and make new collagen strands. The remodeling and repair process is what improves the matrix and results in less cellulite. Wellness Resources Skin Rejuvenator contains VERISOL collagen peptides along with other nutrients that help strengthen collagen and skin.*
