Superfoods Can Be Used To Quit Smoking

How can someone wean themselves off nicotine by infusing the proper nutrition that kills the cravings, replenishes a depleted system, and helps bring back positive feelings and experiences associated with smoking? How is this done?

From the maca and mucuna plants to alkalizing the body, nutrition is the yellow brick road for quitting smoking for good. In fact, the little “pep” smokers get from nicotine can easily be replaced with natural remedies, if the smokers only knew how.  But hardly any cessation programs even mention nutrition, herbs or tinctures,  or do so briefly, so the smokers don’t really ever research it, try it, or succeed with it. Quitting smoking isn’t just about ending a nicotine fix, it’s about reclaiming your healthy life and helping everyone around you that has to deal with second-hand and yes, third-hand smoke.

Second-hand smoke kills 600,000 people worldwide every year. Add to that, a newfound mutagenic known as third- hand smoke, which is toxic residue from cigarette smoke that adheres to practically every surface, including hair, skin, clothing, carpeting, ceilings, furniture and paint. Plus, it becomes increasingly dangerous over time. Over the course of just one year a ceiling will turn completely yellowish-brown from a 2-pack-a-day smoker, who fills the room with exhaled tar and pesticide. Living in conditions like this affect the body’s ability to detoxify, and leads to major nutrient deficiencies for anyone spending time in that environment.

Superfoods “dynamic duo” ends nicotine cravings

The key to quitting smoking and never lighting up again, or even ever wanting to, is to combine superfoods and behavior modification, and then you can escape cigarettes. And just what is the “dynamic duo secret” to killing the cravings and escaping the nicotine prison?  Without the “nic” patch, the pills, the gum, or electronic cigarettes, what other option is out there besides cold turkey, which only works for about 5 percent of those who attempt it?

The dynamic duo “M&M” entails supplementing with maca and mucuna, two superfood powder supplements most people have never even heard of, much less consumed. Superfood enthusiasts know all about the incredible nutritional powers of maca. Grown in the high Andes Mountains of Peru, maca is packed with proteins, tannins and complex alkaloids, and can be added to any smoothie.

Mucuna is the amazing herbal adaptogen

Then there’s mucuna, also known as velvet bean, which is capturing the interest of thousands of smokers worldwide who have the will to quit smoking but just can’t clip that “nic-fix.” Mucuna helps the weaning smoker balance out mood swings and dampen or even remove withdrawal symptoms.  This amazing herbal adaptogen is also a potent herbal aphrodisiac. An Indian herb also known as buffalo beans, the pod is simply ground up into a powder and put into capsules to help regulate dopamine efficiency in the body. This is where most smokers fall off the “cold turkey” attempts, because their dopamine levels are low or even nonexistent without nicotine. Infuse mucuna and they feel like they just took a drag, except this is all natural, so bye-bye cancer sticks. Mucuna is even known to treat Parkinson’s disease.
