What You Should Know
Cellasene is an herbal supplement that claims to work from the inside out fighting cellulite at the source. Let’s take a look at the evidence and see what we find.
List of Ingredients
Cellasene contains: dried ginkgo biloba, dried sweet clover extract, grape seed bioflavonoids, dried fucus vesiculosus extract, evening primrose oil, fish oil, and soy lecithin.
Ginkgo biloba can help increase circulation. Dried sweet clover extract is a mild diuretic which increases urination. Grape seed bioflavonoids have some antioxidant properties. Dried fucus vesiculosus extract contains substantial amounts of iodine. Iodine can cause an adverse reaction of the thyroid. Evening primrose oil and fish oil may have a substantial caloric value causing a slight increase in energy. Lecithin is produced by you body in ample amounts there is no real need for a lecithin supplement. The manufacturer has claimed that gingko biloba stimulates the metabolism of fat. There has never been any evidence to suggest this. They also suggest that Dried fucus vesiculosus extract a mild diuretic is some how helpful in the removal of cellulite, yet fluid build up is no way related to the composition or appearance of fatty tissue. Dried fucus vesiculosus extract also has a very high iodine content. The U.S recommended daily amount for iodine is 150 micrograms. On average, the American female consumes around 170 micrograms from food alone, this does not include iodized salt. Each Cellasene capsules contains 240 micrograms of iodine. The results of an iodine overdose can lead to weak pulse, throat and stomach pain, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, coma, and burning in the mouth.
- There do not appear to be any advantages.
- This product contains dangerously high levels of iodine.
- There is no clinical proof for effectiveness.
- None of the ingredients are in any way linked to weight loss.
- This company makes very misleading and unsubstantiated claims.
Based upon investigation of Cellasene the first thing that comes to attention is the companies claims about the ingredients of its product. One should also take into account the fact that Rexall Sundown agreed to pay $12 million for making false claims about its product Cellasene following a lawsuit file by the Federal Trade Commission. Several class action lawsuits have been filed against the makers of Cellasene for damages. Health Canada has declared Cellasene to be in violation of federal laws on the grounds that the company has failed to produce evidence to back up its scientific claims. It appears that this worthless and potentially harmful supplement has truly failed to provide support for any of it’s claims while at the same time proceeding to skew in house tests the makers of this product have succeeded in deceiving countless individuals into spending their hard earned money in exchange for a no count capsule wrapped in the empty promise of a miracle pill. Stay as far away from Cellasene as possible.
