Aminophylline for Cellulite Has Many Victims
Today we dispel the sleazy myth about the asthma drug, Aminophylline, being a supposed anti-cellulite ingredient.
Here is a short video on Webmd.com where the ingredient was split-tested against a regular moisturizing lotion.
Cellulite Thigh Cream Test Video
While I like the info shared in the video – the professor makes the assumption that women who want to get rid of cellulite are also wanting to reduce body-fat, or body size. Again – as I’ve written about in the past, cellulite is something which affects women who love their body size and weight.
It’s the appearance of the bumps and dimples which she is not happy about. And hence, any cream or lotion which is intended to reduce butt, thigh or leg size is not even what the average cellulite sufferer is looking for in the first place.
Even Well-Meaning Experts Are Confused About Cellulite
See what I mean when I say even the “experts” are confused about cellulite and who it affects? Interesting, to say the least.
Anyway, if you want the full and factual scoop on this drug which is used as a treatment for asthma – here is the official entry at the:
PubMed Health website at the U.S. National Library of Medicine >> Aminophylline
This is the opening paragraph:
Aminophylline is used to prevent and treat wheezing, shortness of breath, and difficulty breathing caused by asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and other lung diseases. It relaxes and opens air passages in the lungs, making it easier to breathe.
Some products go a sneaky step further by claiming to use an even more powerful drug called Theophylline as part of their creamy concoction. Theophylline is a bronchodilator which is used to make Aminophylline for asthmatics. You can read the details about it here on Wikipedia:
Theophylline for Cellulite? NOT
The main points for you to understand, so you can – protect your health, prevent you from wasting money and to find a real way to get rid of cellulite are as follows…
1 – Drugs used as ingredients for a beauty/fitness issue carry a risk. But sometimes the serious cases don’t surface or become public until damage has already been done.
2 – Many companies use minimal doses of these ingredients because they are expensive. But, if you’ve been misled into thinking the ingredient holds your miracle cure for cellulite – then all you need to do is see it on the label. But without knowing how much is in the mix is still a huge question mark.
3 – Some low-down companies even go far as to NOT include the drug ingredient in the cream or lotion, even though they claim the ingredient is part of the mix on the ingredients list printed on the box and/or bottle. This really doesn’t matter since these ingredients don’t get rid of the bumps and dimples we call cellulite.
