Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite is caused by progressive breakdown of the circulatory system under the skin. It is the first manifestation of a much bigger problem: the onset of widespread circulatory failure throughout the body. This is the cause of aging and many diseases. One of the main contributing factors to this circulatory failure is the presence of excess free radicals in your body.

What are Free Radicals and What Role Do They Play?

Free radicals along with other highly reactive chemicals are found everywhere in our bodies. The problem arises when they are present in excess quantities. They react with almost everything they come in contact with so they are very damaging. There is evidence that excess free radicals cause damage to both the cell walls and to the DNA, resulting in tissue breakdown and disease. It is this cellular and DNA damage that is responsible for aging and many of the worst diseases we suffer, including cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's.

We are constantly taking in free radicals from the environment as well as creating them within every cell in our body. They are leftover pieces of molecule, which include oxygen and are lacking one or more electrons. Although they are always likely to cause damage our immune system uses them to destroy unwanted elements such as bacteria, viruses and cancer cells. Unfortunately even this destruction of invaders includes considerable collateral damage as the free radicals are not intelligent and will attack cell walls and anything else that can supply the electrons they need.

Whether we create the excess free radicals or absorb them from our food or environment the results are the same: cell walls get weakened and the genetic DNA molecules become damaged. Over time this leads to a breakdown of the circulation, which is responsible for cellulite. The good news is that our bodies have evolved many ways to combat excess free radicals. Once we know how to, we can activate these natural free radical neutralizers to prevent further damage and more cellulite. However, reducing these excess free radicals will not remove the existing cellulite, although it is an essential part of preventing the growth of more.

How to Reverse Existing Cellulite

This means getting rid of the damage that has already been done - repairing the damaged tissues under the skin. The only way to do this is to rebuild the broken blood and lymph vessels under the skin. The only really effective aid to the restoration of circulation that we have found is pure Austrian Moor. You can purchase this online from Vita Moor along with a step-by-step guide on how to deal with your cellulite.

Regular massage of the right type is also an essential part of reversing the damage along with a cream that includes effective stimulants for tissue growth. Avoid creams with caffeine as that does more harm than good. Vita Moor Contour Cream provides the perfect combination of deep penetration and tissue growth stimulation.

We strongly recommend that you avoid liposuction because it removes critical tissues along with the fat ensuring further damage later on.

We also urge you not to use violent massage therapies like Endermologie, which can provide short-term results by temporarily smoothing out the cellulite dimples. These therapies may damage the delicate network of lymph and blood vessels under the skin and so cause more cellulite over the long term.

You also need to learn how to keep your lymph drainage system working. Without good drainage from the tissues your damaged cellulite areas cannot recover. Besides the massage you will need to create the right kind of strength training and cardio-vascular exercise routine. You will find instructions on how and what to do in the Vita Moor step-by-step guide on how to deal with your cellulite.

Finally, you should find a safe detox program that is right for your body. Whatever program you choose should include a course of Vita Moor Drink Essence as this ensures that the toxins lodged in the tissues are released and eliminated from your body.

How to Prevent Future Cellulite

Getting back to the good news about cellulite. All the things that neutralize excess free radicals turn out to be really good for preventing cellulite. This is so because they target the causes of cellulite, thereby providing a direct way to prevent it. Your cellulite prevention program must become an effortless part of your life. You will need to gain the correct habits in order to achieve a cellulite-free future. You will find clear instructions on how and what to do in the Vita Moor step-by-step guide on how to deal with your cellulite.

Use the list below to help you identify the factors that are contributing to the growth of your cellulite. Reduce or eliminate as many of these factors as you can from your life to lower your exposure to free radicals and build the habits that you need.

Sources Of Excess Free Radicals

  • Processed foods (junk foods and foods treated with chemicals, heat or radiation)
  • Old food (particularly canned, reheated foods and leftovers but also frozen foods because all aging increases free radicals)
  • Burnt foods (particularly barbecued, grilled or smoked foods)
  • Fish or flesh, especially red meat, that has been kept in cold storage (the rapid decomposition of dead flesh and the chemicals used to prevent bacterial growth are rich sources of free radicals)
  • High intensity exercise (OK in short bursts, dangerous when straining is sustained so that you feel pain, weak, dizzy or nauseous)
  • Lack of body fitness due to insufficient exercise (causes low resistance to physical and emotional stress leading to higher levels of free radical creation over time)
  • Emotional and physical stress (body needs 6 to 8 week recovery period after a stressful event)
  • Insufficient deep rest (too little or poor quality sleep)
  • Partially digested foods (swallowed before thoroughly chewed so that it is completely reduced to a paste and mixed with saliva; this results in a build-up of toxins due to partial digestion)
  • Exposure to cigarette smoke (active and passive)
  • Alcohol and coffee
  • Food preservatives
  • Exposure to pesticides (insecticides, insect repellants, poisons)
  • Exposure to herbicides
  • Exposure to household cleaners, paints, glues, fire proofing agents, furniture polish, etc.
  • Exposure to vehicle exhaust fumes
  • Exposure to industrial pollution
  • Consumption of or exposure to chlorinated water (drinking water and swimming pools)
  • Exposure to too much sun (when sunburn causes peeling and pain)
  • Birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
  • Overeating or eating before a previous meal is fully digested (causes toxins to build up in the bowel as well as absorption into body)
  • Poor elimination (causes build-up of free radicals that are absorbed by body)
  • Allergic reactions (e.g. immune reaction to pollen, dander, house dust, etc.)
  • Bacterial and viral infections (our immune system sprays them with free radicals causing collateral damage)

Understanding the Dangers of Cellulite

Although it is not life threatening, the presence of cellulite is a warning that we should not ignore. Because cellulite is caused by collapsing capillaries, veins or lymph vessels we need to ask ourselves why they have started to collapse and whether the factors that have attacked our circulatory system under the skin are at work in other areas where more serious damage could occur, such as the brain or heart. The answer is almost certainly 'yes'; the presence of cellulite indicates that critical organs are suffering damage and 'yes' this damage will lead to accelerated aging and chronic disease unless it is stopped. The Vita Moor Cellulite Reversal kits include both external and internal approaches that will help heal your entire body as well as working on the cellulite.

The good news is that women with cellulite have been provided with an early warning system that free radical damage is happening. Women suffer from cellulite due to the structure of the fat layer under their skin. Men do occasionally display a type of cellulite damage but it is different to that of women because of the different tissue structure under their skin.

Cellulite is your body's way of telling you that it needs help. Be sure to heed this warning as ignoring it will lead to a deteriorating quality of life. Your health and beauty are your most precious assets so you need to take steps to protect them from this destructive process. If you let the damage continue not only will your beauty fade, but critical organs will begin to weaken and malfunction.

Diagnosing Your Cellulite The Course of Cellulite - In Summary

Cellulite is a real medical condition that follows a predictable path of development. It typically starts with a few broken veins or tiny areas of discoloration and a tendency to bruise easily. This early stage may be missed, however, it will develop into the distinctive "orange peel" appearance as the tissue under the skin becomes swollen and distended.

If left unchecked this frequently develops into the "mattress skin" stage in which the skin feels cool to the touch. After this the tissues deteriorate further into islands of concentrated blood flow that feel hot and are surrounded by cold cellulite tissue. The lack of circulation in the damaged cellulite tissues finally results in more fat and fiber accumulation along with fluid retention to produce a honeycomb structure of swollen lumpy tissue that disfigures the body profile known as steatomes.

How Cellulite Starts - Before You Know You Have It

Cellulite is caused by damage to the delicate capillary or drainage system in the fat layer under the skin. It begins when the circulation in the capillaries, veins or lymphatic drainage vessels under the skin slows down. This leads to sluggish or even static regions of blood or lymph flow, which allows highly reactive chemicals (free radicals and others) to attack the walls of the capillaries, veins or lymph vessels as well as the surrounding tissues. Once damage has occurred in one of the circulatory systems in this fatty layer it spreads to the others, leading to accumulation of lymph in the tissues. This all happens without any outward signs other than perhaps a tendency for cuts and bruises to heal more slowly.

How Cellulite Progresses - When You First Notice It

Cellulite develops when decreased lymph and blood flow to these pockets results in the fat cells becoming increasingly encased in fibrous, scar-like tissue, which further prevents the blood and lymph flow. Although the tendency to form these fibrous bands is thought to be largely genetic, it may be significantly enhanced by the venule and lymphatic breakdown, with scar tissue replacement. In these "pools" of lymph accumulation protein fibers tend to precipitate out and form fibers; these fibers are laid down around groups of fat cells giving rise to a lumpy appearance on the skin; this is the beginning of the cellulite cycle.

How Cellulite Spreads

As the circulation slows and lymph accumulates in the fatty tissue under the skin more and more protein fibers are formed. Normally cells known as fibroblasts would dissolve these abnormal protein fibers, but as the circulation and drainage deteriorate these fibroblasts become defective because they are starved of oxygen and nutrients. Instead of removing the protein fibers and maintaining a network of fine, elastic, supporting fibers they build thicker, less flexible webs of fiber around groups of fat cells.

Fat cells have fat-storing and fat-releasing receptor sites. Different parts of the body have fat cells with more fat storing sites or more fat-releasing sites. This is why many women tend to store fat on certain parts of the body and lose it on other parts, frequently giving rise to the familiar pear shaped body. Cellulite areas usually have fat cells with more fat-storing sites. This means that any fatty substances in the lymph surrounding the damaged tissues are quickly taken up by the fat cells and stored.

During exercise the body demands energy and the fat cells should release fat into the blood for consumption by the muscles. The damaged cellulite tissues are not able to respond, however, due to the damaged circulation so fat from other areas is used and the cellulite areas continue to build up fatty deposits.

Orange Peel and Mattress Skin

The combination of thick, rigid fibers and increasing fat along with distended tissues caused by fluid retention gives rise to the "orange peel" appearance of the skin we associate with the first stages of cellulite. Without treatment the cycle of damage accelerates causing patches of isolated fatty tissue that feel cold to the touch separated by "hot" zones where blood circulation is concentrated. This is known as the "mattress skin" stage and progresses to the formation of large fatty lumps known as steatomes.
