FSS CelluPlex PF

Preserved with Leucidal Liquid

Cellulite is the term used to describe subcutaneous pockets of fat. Typical­ly, these pockets of fat cause an uneven “dimpling” of the skin. Most com­monly, cellulite is found in 90% of post-adolescent women, in the areas of the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not related to being overweight, to diet or exercise, but instead is related to hormones, mostly estrogen and progesterone. Cellulite tends to form as the adipose (fat) cells begin to swell during excess fat storage or weight gain, when capillary walls become excessively permeable and the lymphatic drain­age is insufficient, when adipose cells are bound by collagen fibers, further impeding blood flow, and when connective tissues stiffen. Consequently, it is a combination of all of these changes that create cellulite and the resulting dimpled appearance.


FSS Celluplex is a biofermented botanical blend containing three natural herbs, Red Clover, Cocoa, and Green Tea. Each plant product contains various phytochemicals that play specific roles in the ability to help decrease the ap­pearance of cellulite. Each plant is fermented with the bacteria Lactobacillus lactis. After the fermentation process is carried out the extract blend is put through a high sheer process to further isolate the active components.


Red Clover (Trifolium pretense), a close relative to soy, is rich in isoflavones also known as phytoestrogens. Phytoestro­genic compounds may be utilized by the body in two different manners, depending upon what level of endogenous estrogen exists. If estrogen levels are low, as in the case of menopausal women, phytoestrogenic compounds will function to fill in or bind to the now empty estrogen receptor sites thus providing a weak proestrogenic effect. In the case of cellulite, it is the over-saturation of estrogen that maybe responsible for cellulite production. In this instance, phytoestrogenic compounds will bind to the estrogen receptor sites and emit a weaker estrogenic effect than would the endogenous estrogens had they been able to bind. It is this competitive inhibitory action that may potentially decrease the formation of cellulite.


The Cocoa (Theobroma cacao) plant is also rich in phytoestrogenic compounds as well as the xanthine alkaloid, theo­bromine. Caffeine, theobromine, and theophylline, are naturally occurring xanthines. Because of their close chemi­cal structures, each of these xanthines function in very similar fashions.


Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) is well known for its antioxidant properties as well as its caffeine and theophylline content. This combination of xanthine alkaloids from cocoa and green tea, functions to increase microcirculation and fat metabolism. These substances are known to inhibit the enzyme phosphodiesterase while also providing beta-adrenergic stimulation.


As these beta-adrenergic receptor sites are stimulated, fat that is stored in the form of triglycerides can be metabo­lized into free fatty acids and glycerol helping to decrease the amount of adipose tissue found in problem areas of the body as cellulite.
