Researchers Discover Three Ways to Reverse Damage from Smoking
The best way to prevent damage from smoking is to either not have
smoked or to quit smoking. Unfortunately, most people who attempt to
quit smoking will fail many times before successfully quitting, and
may often relapse. Many people continue to smoke because is acts as a
self-medication for low brain dopamine levels. Often, nutritional
agents that aid in repleting dopamine and to help with calming and
cravings will help the smoker quit the habit. There are also
mesotherapy treatments developed to aid in kicking the habit.
Nevertheless, the majority of smokers will continue to puff away,
leaving themselves at high risk for heart disease, stroke, and high
blood pressure. Cardiovascular disease in smokers results from
excessive free radical damage that causes damage to the blood vessel
wall known as endothelial dysfunction.
In an Irish study published in the heart journal Circulation,
researchers found three ways to combat endothelial dysfunction in
smokers, thus theoretically reducing their risk of atherosclerosis.
Both vitamin C and the amino acid taurine, and the gout medication
allopurinol all helped to reverse endothelial damage in those who
smoked. While the exact method of protection is not completely
understood, it is thought that all three agents act as antioxidants
and reverse free radical damage.
Coenzyme Q10 – the wonder nutrient for former smokers
The damage form smoking is well known and documented. Aside from
causing cancer and other diseases, smoking also:
Damages cells through out the body Causes free radicals and toxins in
the body that cause all sorts of health problems Damages the heart,
lungs and other vital organs and is a cause of cardiovascular disease
Zaps energy at the cellular level Damages the immune system
Depletes Coenzyme Q10 levels
Coenzyme Q10 to the rescue!
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a compound found naturally in the
energy-producing center of the cell known as the mitochondria. CoQ10
is involved in the making of an important molecule known as ATP. ATP
serves as the cell’s major energy source and drives a number of
biological processes including muscle contraction and the production
of protein. Coenzyme Q10:
Is made by the body naturally Helps cells to produce energy Acts as
an antioxidant (a substance that prevents damage caused by free
radicals) Can actually reverse damaged caused by free radicals in the
body Helps maintain cardiovascular health Helps maintain gum health
Increases energy production at the cellular level Repairs cells
damaged from smoking Boosts immune function
If there is a “magical nutrient” for the former smoker, it would have
to be Coenzyme Q10.
Where do you get it?
We get Coenzyme Q10 from oily fish, organ meats such as liver, kidney,
heart, muscle meats, peanuts, spinach, soy, nuts, and whole grains.
You can also take it in supplemental form. I recommend Vitamin Power
Coenzyme Q10 and found it to be the most potent on the market. You

Smoking, Drinking, Aging & Cancer
80% of all internal cancers are due to a class of chemicals
(polynuclear hydrocarbons) found in tobacco smoke, which cause
mutations in DNA. Acetaldehyde, found in the blood stream of
drinkers, (produced in the liver from alcohol) is also found in
tobacco smoke. Studies show that drinkers and smokers are very
inclined to premature aging
(wrinkling, mental decline, liver damage, cancer, and heart disease).
Probably the most powerful inhibitor of such cancer formation and
premature aging is a formulation containing selenium, which has proven
to suppress the formation of cancers so effectively that the National
Cancer Institute recommends smokers take it daily. Epidemiologic
studies show that cancer rates would decrease by 70%. Studies, at
Darthmouth Medical School, on the effects of Selenium, show that rats
lived well beyond their normal maximum life span of
3 1/2 years. Some lived 48 months and one lived to an age of 5 years
and 5 days. Translated to human terms that’s the equivalent to 160
Experiments by Dr. H. Sprince where 90% of rats fed acetaldehyde died,
showed that when the same dose of acetaldehyde is fortified with two
powerful immune building compounds; Thiamine and Cysteine, none of
the rats died.
Nicotine increases cholesterol and causes blood vessels to constrict,
resulting in higher blood pressure. Nicotinic acid however, (a related
compound) actually reverses the damage caused by nicotine. It not
only lowers blood pressure by dilating the constricted vessels, but it
also lowers cholesterol.
It Follows that a formula consisting of (50 mcg. Seleno Methionie; 50
mcg. Seleno Di Glutathione; 100 mcg. Sodium Selenate); 100 mcg.
Nicotinic Acid; 100 mcg. Thiamide and 100 mcg. Cysteine; would
considerably reverse the damage caused by smoking and alcohol. Such a
“detoxification formula” taken in conjunction with the free radical
quenching Life Extension Formula, (Since it has all the antioxidants
proven to help prevent cancer, kidney disease, brain damage; and
significantly r***** aging by counteracting free radicals), couldn’t
help but make it much safer for those who insist on smoking and/or
99% of the published research on Selenium’s effectiveness in the
prevention of cancer, heart disease, cataracts, cystic fibrosis,
muscular dystrophy, and arthritis; as well as slowing down the aging
process, is attributed to Sodium Selenate.
Sodium Selenate is a proven superior, safe 100% natural,
hypoallergenic, yeast free source of Selenium.
This formulation, developed to detoxify smokers i.e. (to remove the
poisons and undo the harm caused by smoking) also reduces the effects
of the headaches and wooziness of hangovers. By taking this
detoxification formula at the right time, you can clean up the
excessive “free-radical” activity caused by smoking. It is best to
protect your cells against the toxicity that alcohol and tobacco
produce by taking this detoxification formula soon before or after you
drink or smoke.
Life Extension’s Smokers & Drinkers DETOXIFICATION FORMULA™
If you smoke or drink (or live with a smoker) you can do something to
alleviate the damage. This Formula is specifically designed to reverse
the damage caused by polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons; acetaldehyde
and nicotine, which result from smoking and alcohol. It is the only
such formula in the world. Always take with food. For maximum results
take with the Life Extension Formula. Each tablet contains: (Selenium
Complex): Seleno Methionine (yeast free) 50 mcg. Seleno Di Glutathione
50 mcg. Sodium Selenate 100 mcg. Plus: Cysteine (not cystine) 100
mcg. Thiamide 100 mcg. and Nicotinic Acid 100 mcg.
