The 3 Week Diet

Dr. HowellAre you searching for an alternative remedy to stop smoking? You may have probably come across a product called Quit Tea. According to reviews, this tea helps reduce stress, promote relaxation, increase energy, reduce hunger, and replace the habit. But, how’s that possible? To answer this question, we must look deeper into the ingredients of Quit Tea. What’s in this product? Let’s find out.

Quit Tea Ingredients
The best thing about Quit Tea is that it is made from all-natural herbs and spices that have been scientifically proven to exhibit a range of health benefits. When you use this tea, the following herbs and spices will work together to help you halt nicotine cravings and achieve your goal to quit.

Valerian Root
Quitting is such a stressful process for many as it comes with debilitating, energy-sapping symptoms like nicotine craving, headache, insomnia anxiety, dizziness and more. Valerian root aids in smoking cessation for its ability to stimulate relaxation and good sleep. This herb has been used by Greeks and Romans to address sleep issues and promote relaxation since the ancient times.

St. John’s Wort
St. John’s Wort is a shrub-like perennial herb native to Europe, western Asia, and Northern Africa. One randomized trial suggests that it may have potential in helping people stop smoking. Some evidence also suggests that the herb may help treat mild to moderate depression due to its mood-enhancing effects.

Licorice
Not only does licorice make a good candy. This herb contains compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties in the lungs, which in turn speeds up lung recovery and promotes good pulmonary function. It is also believed that licorice consumption helps alleviate stress, depressive symptoms and other damaging emotions that a person is likely to experience when undergoing nicotine withdrawal. At the same time, it boosts energy.


DID YOU KNOW?
There is nothing in Quit Tea that is toxic, so you can enjoy a cup of Quit Tea as often as you need.

Cinnamon
Many smokers fear that when they quit, they will gain weight. It’s because nicotine withdrawal leads to symptoms in the body similar to a rapid drop in blood sugar, fueling hunger pangs. Studies have shown that adding a scoop of cinnamon in daily diet can help people lose weight. Luckily, Quit Tea contains cinnamon. This herb helps suppress appetite and speeds up metabolism to avoid weight gain during smoking cessation.

Oregano
Oregano is well-touted for its amazing health benefits which came from its high antioxidant contents, including phenolic acids and flavonoids that have antiseptic, expectorant and stimulant properties. It also has active compounds that offer additional benefits to the immune system.

Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne is added to Quit Tea because it acts as a catalyst for other herbs, therefore strengthening their health benefits. More importantly, it helps desensitize the taste receptors in the brain that receive pleasure from cigarette smoking. So when a person smokes again, he or she is more likely to realize that cigarettes do have unpleasant taste.


Burdock
Burdock is widely used in many other smoking cessation products and must not be taken on its own. It is known for its detoxification properties, helping eliminate impurities and toxins in the blood and other organs in the body.

Fennel
Aside from helping suppress appetite and reduce food craving (which is normal during smoking cessation), fennel also helps clear the lungs from free radicals and mucus build-up that affect lung function.

Black Pepper
We use black pepper to spice up our dishes, from simple omelets to pasta sauces, salads, and so on. However, it is also used to add flavor to tea and strengthen its therapeutic benefits. For instance, black pepper in Quit Tea is known to aid digestion, reduce pain, boost the immune system, and fight insomnia.

Ginger
Ginger is listed as a super food by many health organizations because of its wondrous, never-ending health benefits. When used in quitting smoking, ginger boosts blood circulation, strengthens the immune system, reduces pain and nausea, and promotes digestion.

Cloves
Cloves are often used to reduce pain due to its antiseptic and anti-parasitic properties. It also boosts digestion.

Red Clover
Smoking heavily damages the lungs. Red clover does not only make quitting easier by promoting relaxation, but also contributes to the healing process the body goes through after smoking cessation. Red clover helps the lungs recover due to its expectorant and antispasmodic properties.


Sarsaparilla
Aside from enhancing the flavor, this herb makes Quit Tea more effective by restoring lung function, increasing the excretion of fluid, and increasing energy.

As you can see, there is nothing in Quit Tea that is toxic, so you can enjoy your cup of Quit Tea as often as you need!

So I get this email from Dr.Anthony Howell (yes I signed up for a giveaway here), asking me how my journey of quitting smoking’s going and to drop by and leave a comment – THIS is that (sharing). It’s been over 6 months now, and I quit with Chantix. I didn’t get the crazies like some people have, in fact I liked it. It didn’t do anything for my preexisting mood disorder, but it help with my cravings. Problem is the booklet that comes with the medication tells you “It’s ok if you screw up and relapse (into smoking) — you can TRY again!” — well of COURSE they say that since Chantix costs an arm and a leg and requires the jumping through of 10,000 hoops to get one’s insurance to cover all or part of it… (but I digress). So yeah I’m smoke free — I get cravings still (mostly after a meal or when I’ve been drinking) but it’s just like any other addiction — just tell yourself no and get through that minute. It WILL pass. And you won’t have relapsed. Hope this helps someone else. It works for me.
