Nicotine Fix

Smoking may deplete your body's levels of vitamin E, leaving you more vulnerable to disease. A recent study conducted by Oregon State University's Linus Pauling Institute determined that the amount of E in smokers' bloodstreams is quickly depleted by the need to clean free radicals out of their lungs and extinguish inflammation throughout their bodies. In one test, a vitamin E marker stayed 10 hours longer in the nonsmokers' blood. Until you're ready for NicoDerm, be sure your daily diet contains at least 15mg of vitamin E by eating an ounce of sunflower seeds or almonds in the morning and afternoon.
