Question: I have tried a ton of creams and gels to help get rid of my cellulite with only limited success. I really hate my thighs but I can’t seem to find anything that works! I saw a product called CelluScience that is a pill. I feel like it may be more effective since I ingest it. However, I am a little nervous about taking a supplement. Is this product safe? Does it actually reduce cellulite?
Answer: Celluscience is a pill regimen that claims to reduce cellulite with a mixture of ingredients called “vascolarys complex.” The vascolarys complex contains several naturally occurring ingredients, including fish oil grape seed oil, and ginkgo biloba. There is a full list of ingredients on the website and the product appears to be free of chemical additives or stimulants. Although the website lists several clinical trials, There was no independent research about this complex to support their claim to reduce cellulite.
The main ingredients listed in CelluScience are herbs and natural oils found in several other wellness supplements. Although many people believe that some of the ingredients in this supplement are effective in supporting normal body functions, none have been approved for the prevention or treatment of cellulite. If you do choose to try this product, be sure to consult a doctor before you begin treatment.
