Before you can understand how this technology works, you need to understand the types of muscles in our human body.
There are 2 types of muscles in our body: Striated or skeletal muscles, the contractions of which we can control voluntarily eg abdominal muscles, biceps, triceps, gluts, quads. We can do sit-ups, bicep curls, squats.
The second type of muscles are the smooth muscles found within our abdominal cavity surrounding our intestines and internal organs eg stomach. We cannot control the contractions of these muscles.
ReduStim delivers low-frequency electromagnetic waves that penetrate deep within the abdominal cavity to stimulate the smooth muscle surrounding the internal organs to break down the fats within the fat cell wall through a process known as lipolysis.
With over 20 years of clinic studies, this painless and harmless action is based on the muscular stimulation without causing any destructive cellular process. ReduStim also helps to reduce subcutaneous fat on the abdominal as well as activating the lymphatic drainage to eliminate toxins and water retention from the body.
Get rid of fat in the fat cell wall but fat cells can inflate if a patient doesn’t control his diet and weight.
