Before you refill that coffee cup, ask yourself one question: Does coffee give you cellulite? Cappuccino, espresso, mocha frappuccino, cafe latte…
The myriad flavour of coffee goes on and on. A variety of people love drinking coffee not only in mornings but all throughout the day.
Coffee is like fuel, providing a person extra stamina to get through their day. However, drinking too much coffee can cause sleeping problems, headaches and palpitations. It also turns out that caffeine found in coffee contributes to weight gain, accelerates aging and pushes the body to store body fat. Now, they’re blaming coffee to be causing cellulites!
Cellulites are a cosmetic medical condition characterized by dimpling of the skin in the buttocks, hips, legs, and thighs. Cellulite forms when the connective tissues that hold fat and skin cell in proper position degenerate. The result is trapped fat making the skin appear lumpy.
Cellulites are said to be caused by poor circulation and lymph flow and all the caffeine from too much coffee can do these to you. Excessive caffeine intake can dehydrate the cells and make that orange peel more visible.
A little caffeine fix goes a long way
There is still hope for both cellulite sufferers and coffee lovers out there. Research shows that drinking coffee in moderation, meaning ONE cup a day only, can actually reduce cellulites. Caffeine in moderated amounts acts as a vasodilator, which increases blood flow in our body.
Increased blood flow flushes out more cellulite forming fat and toxins. Coffee is a natural anti-oxidant.
It fights free radicals in our body that endangers our cells, especially in cellulite affected areas. But to further extract the benefits of coffee, we don’t have to drink it.
