Wailea, Hawaii - An oral nutritional supplement can resolve both cellulite and striae on the thighs and abdomen and improve skin firmness, according to Howard Murad, M.D., who spoke here at the Noah Worcester Dermatological Society meeting. In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, he and other researchers found that this supplement produced superior results over placebo. The supplement consisted of a combination of amino acids, B-vitamins, essential fatty acids and trace minerals.
