Learn How to Reduce Cellulite? Hey guys, Dr. Axe here, doctor of natural medicine and founder of Draxe.com. Today I’m going to share with my top 4 tips on how to get rid of cellulite very, very quickly. Cellulite is something that so many people and women especially struggle with the day and about 90% of women may struggle with cellulite in their life where about 10% to 20% will struggle with cellulite in their life. There are actually definite causes of cellulite build up and ways you can reduce those in as little as a couple of days. The first thing you’ve got to realize is if you have cellulite is that you have weak collagen structure, so your tissue cells are weak. In order to build those up and strengthen them up, you need specific types of amino acids. Many women today are deficient in amino acid, especially those who are vegan and who don’t get enough protein in their diet, but the top amino acids that really support getting rid of cellulite are going to be proline and glycine or collagen. In collagen, those amino acids that make up collagen are the most important for that healthy cell structure. The ideal super food for getting rid of cellulite is bone broth. Bone broth which is what makes up chicken soup or beef stew. It’s been used for thousands of year. By the way, not the super broth you think of that you’re picking up maybe in [Cartney 00:01:25] or grocery store. I’m talking about the real deal putting bones in a slow cooker or crock put or a slow cooker and allowing those bones to release those minerals as well as those amino acids in their liquid. Now you can sometimes get a good bone broth. You can order them from websites like Wise Choice Market, is where I personally order bone broth when I get it, but real bone broth number one thing you can do, those amino acids proline and glycine help build that strong cell structure. Think about this. Your skin produces collagen. As you age, you have less collagen. Your skin starts to sag. Well, it’s the same thing with cellulite. You get that dimpled skin. Well, it’s weakened, it’s less collagen. You got to build up collagen. Amino acids are the number one way. Also vitamin C rich foods help with that as well. Vitamin C rich foods like kiwis, tomatoes, also bell peppers, lemons, limes, grapefruit. These are fantastic foods. Broccoli is packed with vitamin C. More vitamin C, more of those amino acids are really going to help with collagen production as well as foods that are high in sulfur such as unions, garlic, cabbage as well as asparagus and then sea vegetables like spirulina. All of those will help. The next set of things that you want to do is you want to consume foods rich in potassium. Part of what causes cellulite to show up is the imbalance of sodium and potassium. Sodium causes your body to hold water. Potassium causes your body to flush water. If you’re load on those potassium rich foods and decrease the amount of sodium you’re using, it’s going to naturally reduce cellulite appearance. I would go online to my website Draxe.com. That’s D-R-A-X-E.com and look up potassium rich foods and you’ll find my list foods on the best foods that are high in potassium. Those are the foods you want to add in your diet. Some of those foods may include bananas, sweet potatoes, mangoes, kiwis, also certain types of vegetables high in potassium like parsley and cilantro, but loading up on those foods. Also even goat’s milk, yogurt, those things are very, very high in potassium and will help decrease cellulite naturally and fast. Another thing you want to be getting are healthy, fatty acids to reduce cellulite, specifically omega-3 fats. This is also important for cell and tissue structure. Wild caught salmon is the ideal form of meat or any wild caught fish to start to get rid of that excess cellulite. Start adding honey glazed cellulite. I’ve got recipes for that on Draxe.com as well, but getting those omega-3 fats. You may even want to take a fish oil as well and then do some chia seeds and flaxseeds. Chia seeds, flaxseeds, wild caught fish great for reducing cellulite build up in the body. The next thing I want to talk about are some natural treatments. You can make your own at home cellulite cream with grapefruit essential oil, cypress essential oil, and coconut oil. Again grapefruit oil. Do about 3 to 5 drops. Cypress oil, 3 to 5 drops. A teaspoon of coconut oil and actually rub and massage the area of cellulite for 2 minutes. Do that every single day. That’s important. Then the last but not the least step is getting out and exercising. Ideally you do a form of exercise like burst training. If you want to learn more about burst training, you go to burstfit.com. That’s burst, F-I-T burstfit.com, but exercise just 3 days a week for 20 minutes. I’m not asking you to exercise an hour a day. An hour a week total. You will absolutely see results and any type of exercise. Burst training might be the best. Weight training is great. Pilates or barre classes are fantastic. If you’ve heard of barre or BarreAmped technique. Again, Barre classes, weight training or burst training, one of those 3 are the best for getting rid of cellulite. Guys this has been Dr. Axe.
