Anti - Cellulite

 

Sunflower seeds are chock-full of cellulite-busting nutrients. They are packed with vitamin E, potassium, and zinc. They are a good source of selenium, with one cup providing more than a third of the recommended daily intake. Furthermore, sunflower seeds a good source of vitamin B6, with one cup providing 31% of the recommended daily intake. Vitamin B6 is crucial for the proper absorption of zinc from the intestines, but it also has some cellulite fighting properties of its own:

 

 

  • First, it plays an important role in the metabolism of proteins and helps strengthen and repair connective tissue (weak connective tissue is one of the key factors that aggravate cellulite).

  • Second, it can act as a natural diuretic, thus eliminating excess water and bloating that make cellulite more visible. When incorporating sunflower seeds into your anti-cellulite diet, keep in mind that—regardless of all the great nutrients they contain—they should be consumed in moderation as they are high in calories.
