Is an important phospholipid needed by all living cells. Lecithin is produced within our own bodies, and can be found in the major organs: the heart, the liver, and kidneys. Lecithin aids in maintaining our overall health and is utilised by every cell in our body.
Similarly lecithin intervenes with the body's ability to form fat deposits and has aided in reversing the damage caused. By creating a slippery lining, it prevents large fat deposits from accumulating, allowing the blood to flow more smoothly.
When it breaks down the body fat, not only does it prevent the fat from collecting in large deposits in our bodies, it then transports it to the liver and converts it into usable energy.
Is an alkaloid, which means it contains organic bases from plants. Caffeine has a stimulative effect and will increase the metabolism of the fatty cells in the blood stream. It will also stimulate cell metabolism and promote the hydrolysis of trigricerides into fatty acids and Glycerol, thus reducing apidose storage. Caffeine also has a direct effect on liquid retention associated to cellulite, caffeine will drain the fat cells, tighten and tone the skin and help to reduce the appearance of cellulite even more. The draining effect helps to remove water form the fat cell thereby reducing their size.
Butchersbroom extract acts mainly on the Microcirculation, decreasing capillary permeability due to its content of a flavonoid called Rutin.
The therapeutic properties of this plant are to increase circulation, reduce edema, reduce swelling and to act as an anti-inflammatory and the extract has been used with good results in the treatment of varicose veins.
This herb is mostly used for disorders of the venous system (veins and arteries) of the body especially for fragility of the veins and for improving circulation and this has been proven in clinical investigations and trials.
Is a structural component of the connective tissue, forming part of the important macro-molecules Collagen and Elastin. At this tissue level it induces the control and proliferation of fibroblasts and favours the regeneration of elastic and collagenous fibres.
It binds moisture in the epidermis, thus firming and strengthening the skin. It also has an antioxidant effect which prevents the acceleration of premature ageing. Lack of Silicium causes damage to the connective tissue.
In the Microcirculation it modifies venous capillary and lymphatic permeability. Silicium will normalise cellular metabolism, is a tissue generator and aids in the reduction of cellulite.
Ivy (Hedera helix) extract
Contains Hederin (Hederine), an active saponin which is responsible for blood vessel protection and decrease permeability. Ivy further helps to reabsorb the edemas present in the initial stages of cellulite.
A major action of this herb is that of a circulatory compound which assists other components to be absorbed by the skin, whilst also helping to remove waste products and fatty build-ups from the tissue and helps release fatty deposits from the cells.
Other properties in ivy help various components present in our bodies to be absorbed by the skin and help the lipids (fatty contents) stocked in the fat cells to be absorbed into the blood stream to either be used as a source of energy or to be eliminated.
The ingredient Carnitine is used to help fuel mitochondrial respiratory chains with free fatty acids and adipocytes (fat cells) thereby freeing excess contents of triglycerides. It therefore frees fat from the cells and fights cellulite.
Carnitine is therefore used to transport fatty acids and further promotes lipogenises inhibition and this ingredient is well known for enhancing triglycerides mobility and accelerating their breakdown.
Is extracted from the Horse chestnut tree and has astringent, vasoconstrictor, anti-inflammatory as well as circulation boosting properties and has a sealing effect on capillaries. This all helps in the formula to get rid of cellulite.
The action of this ingredient is to prevent vein fragility, which then also stops any leakage from the veins into the surrounding tissue, which would lead to swelling and edema.
Escin is a venotonic and anti-edematous ingredient and therefore helps to remove excess extra-cellular water.
Is a specialised molecule and is a synthetic peptide containing three amino acid residues - glycerine, histidine and lysine and is a patented ingredient known as Liporeductyl.
The ingredient Tripeptide-1 is used as a skin conditioning ingredient and chemically classed as a protein derivative.
