Herbal Remedies for Cellulite

Natural Treatments for Cellulite

Cellulite, the lumpy-textured skin that the majority of women will experience at some point in their lives after adolescence, is a cosmetically distressing and difficult to treat condition. There are some expensive medical procedures utilizing a variety of advanced techniques—including lasers, injections of fat-dissolving substances, liposuction, and even surgically cutting the fibrous strands (septae) that fat cells push through to create the typical look of cellulite.1

Inflammation can aggravate cellulite, and oxidative damage by toxins can weaken septae and the circulatory and lymphatic system, causing more cellulite and edema. Other options you might try include herbs and vegetables that have anti-inflammatory, diuretic, and other biological effects that may improve the appearance of cellulite by treating these underlying factors.9

Some herbs and vegetables that herbalists suggest may help improve cellulite include:

Abnormally high levels of fluid accumulation in the body tissues
due to imbalances in the circulatory and lymphatic system.
