Abstract:This article presents information on nicotine addiction and nutritional therapy. Although the number of smokers in the United States has decreased, approximately one-fourth of the population continues to smoke or use nicotine in some form. Nicotine is an oily poisonous liquid found only in the tobacco plant. Pharmaceutically, it is characterized as an organic nerve drug; it is so powerful that one drop injected in a human can cause instant death. Nutritional support is very important and will help you stop and remain a non-smoker. Research has demonstrated that smoking greatly reduces the level of vitamin C. Vitamin C functions as an antioxidant in protecting against damaging reactions produced by the compounds in cigarette smoke.
