Cellulite is a beauty concern at every stage of life.
The presence of cellulite in different parts of the body is almost universal for all women over the age of 20.
Although cellulite is not a medical concern, it is still one of the main concerns today, where feeling good is essential for physical well-being. Today, 85% of women over the age of 20 are affected by cellulite, which represents 1.7 billion women in the world. We should note that men can be affected as well. What is then the link between cellulite and oxydative stress?
Cellulite originates in hypodermis and oxidative stress*. The appearance of this “orange skin” is explained by : fatty cell hypertrophy and connective tissue corruption, both closely related to oxidative stress*.
What active to reduce cellulite? SOD or Super Oxide Dismutase. Role of cellulite and oxydative stress?
The story of SOD begins with an unexpected discovery. In 1989, French melon growers were surprised by a new variety of melon that showed an impressive shelf life. After several years of research the mystery of this unique quality is discovered: an exceptionally high SOD content, a powerful antioxidant.
SOD strengthens the body’s natural anti-oxidant defenses. Thus it prevents fibrosis of collagen fibres and fatty cell hypertrophy, the two main causes of cellulite. It traps the body’s free radicals and counters the harmful effects of oxidative stress*.
What is oxydative stress?
Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body. Free radicals are oxygen-containing molecules with an uneven number of electrons. The uneven number allows them to easily react with other molecules. Free radicals can cause large chain chemical reactions in your body because they react so easily with other molecules. These reactions are called oxidation. They can be beneficial or harmful, but oxidative stress affects the body and needs to be managed and its imbalance prevented.
