    I saw one of the online ads for this product claiming to rid cellulite. It also claims to be 'the fountain of youth', endorsed by Oprah and Dr. Oz.

    After doing some research, while Oprah and Dr. Oz have recommended it, they don't necessarily endorse it and those online sites to order it from are scams.
    But it is available in health and supplements stores - has anyone actually tried this?
    Or have any recommendations for good cellulite solutions?

      This may sound crazy, but a few years ago I went to school to get certified in Massage Therapy. Classes were 3x a week for about 4 hours at a time. We obviously had to practice what we were learning on each other, and for some reason or another, everyone was shy about getting on the table to be practiced on. (I don't know why, we had our clothes on and it was a free massage!) Well anyway, I had no problem laying there for hours and getting massages. Because there were about 8 of us, there were people constantly massaging different parts simultaneously, so my legs were getting a bulk of the work. I noticed a few months into the class that ALL of my cellulite was gone! For some reason or another, the constant massaging seemed to smooth my legs. I don't know why it happened, but all I can say is it was an obvious and incredible change. Unfortunately that was 5 years ago, and of course I have more now.I bought that Nivea lotion for cellulite and basically massage the crap out of my thighs every day, and am seeing some result.

        Resveratrol is an ingredient found naturally in red wine. It's been linked to have cardiac benefits, but you'd have to drink gallons a day to get the benefits, so they began marketing the product as a tablet in higher concentrations. There isn't a whole lot of data behind it to begin with, but I sure have not heard a thing about it being linked to improving cellulite. I wouldn't bother with it, sorry.

            I don't know about resveratrol for fighting cellulite, but my mom SWEARS by it for its anti-aging and pro-health benefits.

            She has to get it from the US or from Luxemburg (it's not yet sold in France) so believe me she's motivated ! Our family doctor (a naturopath) confirmed to her that resveratrol, although not much researched yet, has potentially high benefits.

            For celullite, and this will go in the same way than what estella1007, the best I've ever tried is "drainage lymphatique" - OMG how am I going to translate this lol !!! It's a special technique massage that is supposed to help you drain off water, toxins and fat. It's called like that because the massage is supposed to make the lymph circulation easier.
