"Quit Smoking" with Bananas

Have you been trying to quit smoking lately? here’s an easy way to do it.

You are aware of the fact that smoking is extremely injurious to health, you care for your health but still can’t stop yourself from buying packets of cigarettes day after another. Don’t worry, it’s just because you are addicted to it. We all understand that it is actually very hard to quit something we are addicted to, but we should also take into account of the facts that may have adverse effect on our health.

Nothing is impossible and it is absolutely possible to quit smoking, you just need a strong determination. I have seen many who were heavy smokers but now they don’t even think of it. During the last few days I found that there is something that may help you to quit smoking, it is easily available and yummy to eat. Friends it’s the “Banana” that may help you to some extent.

People who smoke have high levels of nicotine in their blood; this nicotine level urges them to smoke again and again. Researchers have found that bananas have certain minerals like potassium, magnesium and vitamins like vitamin B6 and B12, that facilitate reduction of nicotine content of blood and hence influence people to smoke less.

Not only these there are several other health benefits of banana, it is a great energy booster due to its high carbohydrate content. It has high levels of tryptophan that enhance your mood making you happy and combat depression. The high potassium content lowers blood pressure and its high fiber content eases digestion and bowel movement.  

It is for that reason prudent to eat bananas, if you are trying to quit smoking. I’d say it’s worth giving a try.

  1. brilliant article thanks for the support : elee

  2. Hopeful article for those struggling. Common sense started to remind me each time I picked up a cigarette, so it was my thoughts that stopped me cold turkey 14 years ago. I am so free…I am a mature woman that can run up stairs now and not cover my sweet perfume with the smell of nicotine. But besides all of that, I have had family and friends die from the results of smoking. People have to wake up and believe, it can be done. If it happened to me, it can happen to them if they really understand how harmful nicotine is to them and the people around them. Great writing. :)
