QUIT NUTRITION: An Effective Natural Way to Replenish the Body with Key Nutrients Robbed from Cigarette Smoking
Cigarette smoking actually causes specific nutritional deficiencies that lead to the many well-known health problems. Until now, there has never been a product to specifically boost smoker’s nutritional needs. Quit Co. recently launched Quit Nutrition, a multivitamin, to help smokers maintain health and repair damage caused by tobacco use.
Did you know what the ingredients used to make cigarettes does to your body?
Carbon Monoxide is the same odorless, colorless gas that comes out the tailpipe of your car or a faulty gas heater. In high enough concentrations it is deadly; in lower doses, it causes shortness of breath and increased heart rate.
Nicotine is only one of many dangerous substances used in cigarettes; nicotine is responsible for making cigarettes so addictive. Studies have shown nicotine to be as addictive as heroin and cocaine.
Tar is the dark substance that actually carries the nicotine to the lungs. Along with the nicotine, it also carries the long list of other chemicals: Benzene, Radon and Other Nasty Stuff. These are chemicals that the Environmental Protection Agency has said you don’t want in your home since they cause cancer. You inhale them when you smoke.
Cadmium is one of the risks faced in smoking is heavy metal poisoning from the cadmium in cigarette smoke. Smoking creates an accumulation of cadmium in organs and the severe anemia associated with cadmium toxicity
Iron: (Iron Overload) this extra iron just multiplies the ill effects of all the other toxins.
Lots of damage can be done by smoking cigarettes. Smoking affects the body in very many ways, it depletes the body of key nutrients. Quit Nutrition Multivitamin is specifically designed to supplement the nutritional deficiencies typically lacking in smokers. It includes vitamins, minerals, and herbs that make it easier to adhere to a smoking cessation plan.
What are the benefits of using Quit Nutrition? Quit Nutrition provides the body with key nutrients that is depleted from the body caused by cigarette smoking. For example:
Vitamin E: Numerous toxic substances from the cigarette smoke cause scars to form on the arterial walls. These scars take the place of normal cells in the body and they don’t replace their function. This replacement happens in the process called oxidation. Vitamin E can stop that damage from occurring as it is an antioxidant.
Vitamin B: Smoking triggers the release of stress hormones in the body. This means an increased need for all the B vitamins, including folic acid. The following B vitamins are specifically needed:
Vitamin B5: Cigarette smoking damages collagen, depletes vitamin C (necessary for collagen), causes wrinkles, blood vessel constriction and sallow skin. You need Pantothenic acid (B5).
Vitamin B12: It is found that smokers have low blood levels of cobalamin (Vitamin B12). Also, note large doses of Vitamin C destroy cobalamin, so taken Vitamin C and B12 supplements an hour or more apart, not at the same time.
Vitamin B6: Tobacco blocks your body’s use of pyridoxine (Vitamin B6). Pyridoxine turns the proteins you eat into proteins your body needs and you need it to convert carbohydrates from the form you store them in into the form you can use for energy. It is needed for hormones, neurotransmitters and enzymes.
Vitamin C: Smokers have below-normal levels of Vitamin C – as much as 40 percent lower in pack-a-day smokers. Cigarettes rob the body of Vitamin C by breaking down and excreting it much faster than normal. Studies show that people exposed to second hand smoke also need extra Vitamin C. Toxic substances from the cigarettes destroy the Vitamin C.
Smoking uses about 25 milligrams of vitamin C per cigarette. It has been noted that smokers are ill more often, directly related to low vitamin C levels. Each cigarette you smoke emits extremely high levels of gaseous pollutants. Smoking creates poisons that are deposited on oral cavities and tissues in your throat and lungs. The irritation they cause further lowers your body’s Vitamin C supplies.
Cigarette smoking damages collagen as it depletes vitamin C (necessary for collagen).
One of the risks faced in smoking is heavy metal poisoning from the cadmium in cigarette smoke. The accumulation of cadmium in organs caused by smoking and the severe anemia associated with cadmium toxicity are prevented by dietary Vitamin C supplements. Cadmium is also in the air we breathe. If we live near any pollution, Vitamin C again is needed. Vitamin C protects against this and other oxidative damage caused by smoking as it is an antioxidant.
Selenium: Selenium acts to prevent the accumulation in your body of toxic deposits of heavy metals like cadmium. Chemically, it creates a bond with the metal, thus rendering it less harmful and helping your body to eliminate it.
Magnesium: If you smoke, you may be a special candidate for magnesium deficiency. Smoking causes stress that in turn causes blood cholesterol levels to rise and magnesium levels to fall.
Since magnesium and calcium all work together to make your heart muscle contract in a regular rhythm, one of the first signs of a magnesium deficiency is an irregular heartbeat. As a result of calcium/magnesium imbalance, calcium deposits may form on the heart muscle. If this happens, the heart cannot contract properly. Magnesium is also important in breaking down fats you eat into fatty acids that can be useful in building body parts like nerve sheaths and cellular membranes. If those fats are not broken down properly, they begin to collect in deposits, which lodge on damaged arterial points. Thus a magnesium deficiency can increase you risks of contracting the two major degenerative heart diseases: arteriosclerosis and arteriosclerosis. Another point to remember in this regard is that magnesium is necessary for the synthesis of lecithin, which also helps break down those fats.
Magnesium deficiencies can lead to other problems. It can lead to high blood pressure. Your kidneys are very vulnerable to damage by sharp crystalline oxalic acid which can result in hypertension. Spasms of an artery caused by a lack of magnesium can be a direct cause of angina pectoris or even a heart attack.
