GIVE YOURSELF A HEAD START TO QUIT SMOKING Tuesday 26 June 2007 PDF Print To quit smoking successfully your brain as well as your body needs to adapt and change at the deepest level. We often hear it takes willpower to quit smoking. It also takes courage and time to make the transition from smoker to non-smoker. As you take away the nicotine from your body, you bring about a big chemical change that has a significant impact on your mind and emotions. Quitting smoking hits you hard - your cells start to cry out for the drug that they have become used to. So it makes sense that if you can support your mind and emotions through this turbulent time and help your brain and body adapt to a nicotine-free environment, you have a better chance of success. Given that conventional methods of support such as nicotine replacement have only a 15-17% success rate after one year, there’s clearly more to quitting smoking than simply replacing a cigarette with gum or a patch. Get Some More Love The superfood Wild Blue-Green Algae from the Klamath Lake offers the most powerful all round nutrition to support and balance the body, mind and emotions. It comprises a rich supply of natural anti-depressant type molecules including phenylethlyamine (PEA) which is also known as the ‘love molecule’.* Research shows that PEA improves mood faster than amphetamines and is non-addictive (Journal of Neuropsychiatry Clin Neurosci, 1996 spr. 8:2, 168-71). PEA also directly contributes to increasing the quantity of freely circulating dopamine in the brain. A lack of dopamine in the brain is associated with cravings. In fact, certain chemically-based drugs designed to increase dopamine levels are used alongside nicotine therapy to help people stop smoking. But why continue to use nicotine and take yet another drug when nature’s own dopamine enhancer can have a similar effect naturally? How does it help smokers quit? Nicotine's withdrawal from the body can leave you feeling anxious, stressed and, sometimes, depressed. This is the body’s way of telling you it doesn’t like the change. It is at this point that many people cave in and give their body a nicotine hit to feel more in control again as their body feels the familiar effects. But by redressing the anxiety, stress and depression before they take a hold you could avert the need to light up…. ‘Loved Up’ But No Longer Attracted Many people taking Klamath algae report that they are "no longer attracted to nicotine”. And here are some reasons why: 1 The ‘love molecule’ PEA promotes feelings of love, calm and happiness. 2 PEA also helps adjust the dopamine level in the brain to help you cope with cravings 3 Klamath Algae has a high level of chlorophyll which is a powerful cleansing/detoxifying agent that speeds up the removal of toxins that have accumulated during the smoking years. * The high level of circulating toxins in the blood stream contributes to withdrawal symptoms: by removing these toxins quickly and efficiently you can lessen the withdrawal symptoms Reach A Natural ‘High’ Klamath Blue Green Algae stimulates your entire body’s systems – its effect will be felt in your emotions, energy levels and clarity of mind. A boost in all these areas could just give you the mental strength and physical wellbeing to overcome the withdrawal of nicotine. And as the nicotine leaves your body, the positive effects of the Klamath Algae will continue to keep you energised, optimistic and alert – a ‘natural high’ that is far better!

Sometimes called a neurohormone, PEA has specific neuroregenerating properties and is responsible for increasing brain attention, mental acuity and improving mood. People experiencing euphoria and joy have particularly high brain concentrations of PEA, as do people in love, hence it has been named "the love molecule" by scientists. Long-distance runners also have naturally high levels, which may explain the anti-depressant effects of endurance exercise.
