Quitting smoking is not an easy thing to do. Most people who succeed will agree that this is the best thing they have done. After quitting, your blood pressure and heart rate are going to normalize, and also coughing will reduce itself.
Here is the list of some symptoms:
• Dry mouth
• Intense cravings to smoke
How predisposed you are to these symptoms depends on how long you smoked and how much cigarettes.
A New correlation between blood sugar levels and smoking is recently found by researchers.
How Nicotine Cravings Work
Recent research from the University of Southern California found a strong link between blood sugar levels and smoking. It has been found that the major trigger to nicotine cravings are sugar molecules that actually allow the nicotine to transfer the “high” to the nerve cells.
Interestingly, this fact is going to show that stevia, which is a natural sweetener, can be a great home remedy to quit smoking.
Relieve Nicotine Cravings Naturally
The best remedy for nicotine cravings is a sugar alternative. A few studies, made in Germany, suggest that stevia can control nicotine and alcohol cravings.
Stevia plant originates from Paraguay. It is sweeter than sugar, but it is the calories and carbs free and doesn’t deliver any bad effects.
It is the best sugar alternative for diabetics, as a sweetener for tea and other beverages.
Also, it is used in desserts, pickled food, bread, and candles. In Japan, it is widely used and it makes 40% of the sweetener market.
In the U.S. markets, it has been offered recently, but before you decide to buy it, read the labels carefully, because GMO dextrose has been found in “Stevia in the Raw” although it was marked as 100% stevia.
How Much To Take And How
For best results, use liquid stevia. Each time you feel nicotine cravings, apply a few drops of stevia to your tongue.
Another option is stevia sweetener for teas and treats.
