Program of quitting smoking (Vitamine C)
It is early to speak about the final victory over smoking. Therefore, scientists do not lose hope of the invention a simple way to refuse from nicotine, which would suit everyone, regardless of “seniority” of smoking. Recent discoveries of American Scientists brought the solution of this problem nearer. Scientists have found out that vitamin C is quickly destroyed in the organism of smoker, and nicotine becomes its substitute. If a smoker has decided to give up the habit, it is very important that his body will receive the maximum number of vitamin C. At sufficient amount vitamin C comes back to the place of nicotine and the nicotine need decreases. American scientists have gone further and developed a program of quitting smoking, which is meant for six days. During this period, people who quit smoking need to eat more products containing ascorbic acid. First of all smokers should use orange and lemon juices, as well as currants. However, it should be noted that the recommendation to drink five or six glasses of orange juice in the morning does not suit every person. People suffering from diseases of the gastrointestinal tract should refuse from this method.
