In this video blog I discuss how smoking can lead to brain damage. The National Brain Research Center has found that a chemical in tobacco called NNK provokes an exaggerated response from microglial cells in the brain. What is NNK? How does this create brain damage? Tune and in find out…
Need one more reason to quite those nasty cigarettes? As if lung cancer wasn’t bad enough, how about brain damage?
The National Brain Research Center recently released it’s findings that a chemical in tobacco known as NNK provokes an exaggerated response from the brain’s immune cells called microglia. What does this mean?
Well normally these microglia cells act as the destroyers for unhealthy or damaged brain cells. But when provoked by this NNK chemical in tobacco smoke these immune cells start to attack your healthy brain cells. This, over time, can lead to significant damage within the brain tissue.
I don’t know about you, but at this point in my life I’m trying to do everything possible to keep all those brain cells healthy. Unfortunately smoking is one of the most addictive habits you could have.
If you need help quitting smoking, Renew Life can help. My product called Smoker’s Cleanse has had great success. This product is a combination of three formulas. The first will help cleanse the lungs and body from the toxicity of smoking. The second is a tasty chewable tablet designed with ingredients that have an effect on the brain in reducing the cravings for cigarettes. And the third formulation is to reduce the symptoms associated with quitting, such as irritability and insomnia. Many people have used this formula to not only help cleanse their body from the effects of smoking but to help ease the difficulty associated with quitting.
I hope, for your brain’s sake, it helps you too!
