If you are looking for a miracle or safe and effective diet pill or a magic wand to help you lose weight and inches, we have some bad news for you. Those things don’t exist and they likely never will.

If you’re overweight, you really only have a couple of options! You have to accept the way you are or, you must learn how to lose weight.

Certainly, losing weight can be difficult. However, the more you know about weight loss the easier your task becomes.

In the movie ‘Super Size Me’  Mr. Spurlock’s doctors tell him after just one month on the McDonald diet that his cholesterol has skyrocketed, his liver looks alcoholic and he must stop eating fast (fat) food immediately or risk serious and irreversible damage!

His quest is an example of what is happening across North America. Diet related disease is on the rise. We are hooked on Fat and Sugar! Convenience has a very high price indeed.

The facts and warnings seem to be falling on deaf ears. Millions of cases of diabetes, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure and many more health complications are the results of a fat and sugar-laden diet. Now the latest news is that today, our children are developing such metabolic abnormalities as insulin-resistant, type two diabetes and high blood pressure! The problem is enormous, the giant food and drug industries don’t care about health they only care about money and profits!

The simple fact is they don’t call it ‘junk food’ for nothing. It is very bad for our health and it even seems to make us stupid and blind to the truth.

Every person who wants to change their life, health and appearance should avoid the fat food stores – like the plague. So stop dieting and lose weight now with our innovative laser treatment that reduces your appetite, eliminates your cravings and increases your metabolism. We can accelerate your weight loss with whatever program you are currently doing with our laser therapy.




From the book ‘Excitotoxins – The Taste That Kills’

By Dr. Russell Blaylock, MD

MSG not only keeps you from losing weight, it causes other health problems.

Weight loss tips: What if someone were to tell you that a chemical, monosodium glutamate (MSG) added to food could cause brain damage in your children, and that this chemical could effect how your children’s nervous systems formed during development so that in later years they may have learning or emotional difficulties?

Imagine 16,000 tons of powder. The weight of 10,600 cars approximately equals 16,000 tons, so we’re talking about a LOT of powder.

But not just any powder. About 16,000 tons of aspartame is produced for worldwide consumption each year. In other words, people are consuming enormous quantities of this artificial sweetener, which is better known by its commercial names, such as NutraSweet and Equal.

The day may come when our grandchildren, or perhaps their grandchildren, look back on the decades around the turn of the century and wonder how so many people, year after year, could ingest such huge quantities of something that appeared to be such an obvious enemy of good health.

And what may be most baffling to our heirs: The warning signs are numerous. And they just keep coming. Obesity and weight gain are one of many warning signs.

What if there was scientific evidence that these chemicals could permanently damage a critical part of the brain known to control hormones so that later in life your child might have endocrine problems? How would you feel?

Weight loss tips: Suppose evidence was presented to you strongly suggesting that the artificial sweetener in your diet soft drink may cause brain tumors to develop, and that the number of brain tumors reported since the introduction of this widespread introduction of this artificial sweetener has risen dramatically?

Would that affect your decision to drink these products and especially to allow your children to drink them? What if you could be shown overwhelming evidence that one of the main ingredients in this sweetener (aspartate) could cause the same brain lesions as MSG? Would that affect your buying decisions?

What if it could be demonstrated that all of these types of chemicals, called excitotoxins, could possibly aggravate or even precipitate many of today’s epidemic neuro-degenerative brain diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, ALS, and Alzheimer’s disease?

Would you be concerned if you knew that these excitotoxin food additives are a particular risk if you have diabetes, or have ever had a stroke, brain injury, brain tumor, seizure, or have suffered from hypertension, meningitis, or viral encephalitis?

Would you also be upset to learn that many of the brain lesions caused by these products in your children are irreversible and can result from a SINGLE exposure of these products in sufficient concentration?

How would you feel when you learn the food industry hides and disguises these excitotoxin additives (MSG and Aspartate) so they can’t be recognized? Incredulous? Enraged? The fact is many foods are labeled as having “No MSG” but in fact not only contain MSG but also are laced with other excitotoxins of equal potency and danger.

The latest news estimates that MSG and Aspartame has been added to over 4000 food items! Now the new diet sodas from Coke and Pepsi are made with SPLENDA! Amazing when you realize there are also many new lawsuits filed or being filed against the companies who are putting these poisons into our food and onto the market.

All of the above are true and all of these well-known brain toxins are poured into our food and drink by the thousands of tons a year just to boost sales. These additives have NO OTHER purpose other than to enhance to taste of food and the sweetness of various so-called diet products.

Everyone knows you feel hungry shortly after eating (North American Style) Chinese food. Now you should know why – MSG – it is not a flavor enhancer, it is an appetite stimulant!

No strain of rat or mice is naturally obese, so the scientists have to create them. They make these morbidly obese creatures by injecting them with a chemical when they are first born. The MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and humans?) to become obese, they even have a title for the race of fat rodents they create: “MSG-Treated Rats”.

Are you shocked? Go to your kitchen, check the cupboards and the fridge.

MSG is in everything! The Campbell’s soups, the Hostess Doritos, the Lays flavored potato chips, Betty Crocker Hamburger Helper, Heinz canned gravy, Swanson frozen meals, Kraft salad dressings, especially the ‘healthy low fat’ ones. The items that didn’t have MSG had what they called Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate.

It may be shocking to see just how many of the foods we feed our children everyday filled with MSG. They hide MSG under many different names in order to fool people who catch on.

It doesn’t stop there. When your family goes out to eat, ask what menu items contain MSG. Many employees, even the managers will swear they don’t use MSG. But when asked for the ingredient list, which they may grudgingly provide, sure enough MSG and Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein will be everywhere.

Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, every restaurant, even the sit down ones like TGIF, Chilis’, Applebees and Denny’s use MSG in abundance. Kentucky Fried Chicken seems to be the worst offenders. MSG was in every chicken dish, salad dressing and gravy. No wonder I loved to eat that coating on the skin, their secret recipe spice is MSG!

So why is MSG in so may of the foods? Is it a preservative or a vitamin?

Not according to the experts, they say MSG is added to food for the addictive effect it has on the human body.

Even the propaganda web site sponsored by the food manufacturers lobby group supporting MSG at explains that the reason they add it to food is to make people eat more. A study of elderly people showed that people eat more of the foods it is added to. The Glutamate Association lobby group says eating more benefits the elderly, but what does it do to the rest of us?

‘Betcha can’t eat just one’, takes on a whole new meaning when MSG is added!

So is it any wonder why we are overweight?
The MSG manufacturers themselves admit that it creates craving to their products. It makes people choose their product over others and makes people eat more of it than they would if MSG wasn’t added.

Not only is MSG scientifically proven to cause obesity, it is an addictive substance: A NICOTINE in our FOOD!

Since its introduction into the American food supply fifty years ago, MSG has been added in larger and larger doses to the prepackaged meals, soups, snacks and fast foods we are tempted to eat everyday.

The FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food. They claim it’s safe to eat in any amount.

How can they claim it is safe when there are hundreds of scientific studies that prove it isn’t safe to consume?

But what can people do to stop the food manufactures from dumping fattening and addictive MSG into our food supply? Even as you read this, the US government and their corporate supporters are pushing a bill through Congress. It’s called the “Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act” also known as the “Cheeseburger Bill”, this sweeping law prohibits anyone from suing food manufacturers, sellers and distributors. Even if it is proven they intentionally added an addictive chemical to the foods they produce.

The big media outfits don’t want to tell the public either, fearing legal issues with their advertisers. It seems that the fallout on the fast food industry may hurt their profit margin.

The giant food industry has learned a lot from the tobacco industry. Imagine if big tobacco had a bill like this in place before someone blew the whistle on Nicotine?

If you still think MSG is good for us please see for yourself. Go to the US National Library of Medicine at and type in the words “MSG Obese” and read some of the 115 medical studies that appear.

Weight loss tips: Hidden Sources Of MSG

As discussed previously, the glutamate (MSG) manufacturers and the processed food industries are always on a quest to disguise the MSG added to food. Food Additives. almost always contain MSG – reading food labels is now far important than ever.

Look for names like. Monosodium Glutamate, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Hydrolyzed Protein Hydrolyzed Plant Protein, Sodium Caseinate, Calcium Caseinate, Yeast Extract, Hydrolyzed Oat Flour, Corn Oil.



Weight loss tip, one thing you can do is eat slowly and chew your foods until they are mushy!

1. Allow 30 – 60 minutes for each meal.

2. Aim for 30 chews for each bite, chewing thoroughly to mush.

3. Take smaller bites. This will help you lose weight.

4. Savor each bite, noting its taste, flavor, and texture.

5. Sit down and be focused on eating, not other activities where you can become distracted.

6. Stop eating as soon as you feel full. This will help you lose weight.

7. Do not eat and drink at the same time.

It takes 20 minutes before your brain realizes it full. That means the amount of calories consumed before you begin to feel full can vary a great deal depending on how quickly you eat. This can help you lose weight.

Eat slowly, savour your food and enjoy it. The end result will be less food eaten and it will promote weight loss overall.



Prime Chlorella – The Perfect Green Food for your Health and weight loss

Chlorella rids the body of heavy metals. Anyone who has ever had their teeth filled with silver, been vaccinated, eaten seafood, or used certain pharmaceutical drugs could be at risk of mercury poisoning.

The human body is capable of resisting disease, repairing itself and adapting to its ever- changing environment. When given the correct vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other essential dietary needs, our bodies are almost guaranteed to respond with good health. While many plants can provide the body with important nutrients, very few foods have such a diverse, life-enhancing and remarkable nutrient profile as chlorella. Chlorella is aunicellular fresh water green algae and it is one of the oldest plant forms on the planet. As a near perfect food, chlorella has a multitude of impressive benefits that go far beyond what most foods can do. Namely, chlorella can help:

  • build the immune system
  • improve digestion
  • increase energy
  • balance pH levels
  • control blood sugar levels
  • release toxins in the blood, liver and bowels
  • rid the body of heavy metals, pesticides, and dioxins
  • lose weight

Chlorella has been the subject of thousands of medical and scientific studies. No other food source has been researched to such lengths and today we are beginning to realize that chlorella holds more value than ever before. With the increase in pollutants and the fact that our food supply is so sadly denatured, people are searching for whole foods that can replenish what has been lost in our food chain. Scientists know that minerals and trace elements are vitally important to our health and that we require them forproper cellular function. We see a correlation between a lack of minerals in our diet and an increase in disease. According to a recent U.S. Senate study, 99 percent of Americans are deficient in minerals.


Nutritional Information

Chlorella offers complete nutrition

Chlorella is a complete food that provides sustenance to each and every cell in your body. It contains all eight essential amino acids and is rich in vitamin B12, beta carotene, miner- als, anti-oxidants, DNA/RNA, enzymes, fiber, essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, and Chlo- rella Growth Factor (CGF). Unlike a vitamin/mineral pill, chlorella is a natural, whole food. The body naturally has an affinity for food and therefore it can assimilate and digest chlorella with ease. The end result is less stress on the body as well as a much higher absorption rate as compared to a man made source, which helps you lose weight.

Chlorella’s starring cast: CGF and chlorophyll

CGF is the unique complex exclusive to chlorella that is thought to be the source of its astounding healing properties. CGF is produced during the intense photosynthesis that enables chlorella to grow so rapidly (it can quadruple itself every 24 hours). CGF acceler- ates tissue healing and repair in humans and animals, improves growth rates in children and stimulates tissue renewal and repair in the adult body. As nature has intended, chlorella does not promote the growth of unhealthy or diseased tissue, nor does it cause abnormal growth or weight gain in adults.

Chlorophyll is the substance that gives plants their green color. The higher the concentra- tion of chlorophyll, the darker the green of the plant. Chlorella contains the highest levels of chlorophyll of any plant. Chlorophyll purifies, rebuilds and renews at a cellular level. It is a natural deodorant, eliminating bad breath and body odour and it has anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, it is helpful in the healing of anemia, it strengthens the intestines and it helps to reduce blood pressure. 

Protecting against environmental pollutants

Chlorella rids the body of heavy metals. Anyone who has ever had their teeth filled with silver, been vaccinated, eaten seafood, or used certain pharmaceutical drugs could be at risk of mercury poisoning. Mercury is a very dangerous neurotoxin. Other hazardous heavy metals, dioxins and PCBs found in our food and environment can also play a role in poor health. The outer shell of chlorella binds with these toxic substances and safely extracts them from the body. With regular use, the body will begin to detoxify itself and remove these harmful chemicals. The burden of elimination is then taken off of organs such as the liver, kidneys, bowels, lungs and skin. The chelation benefits of chlorella take place after three to six months of regular use. Reducing heavy metals in the body also helps weight loss.

How to take chlorella

Chlorella is an excellent supplement for just about everyone. Children, the elderly, athletes, pregnant women and even pets can safely add it to their diets. A maintenance dose of two to three grams per day is sufficient for most, although athletes and anyone ill, over- stressed, or skipping meals is recommended to take more. For therapeutic purposes the dosage should be anywhere from 5 to 10 grams per day. It can be taken at anytime during the day but is best taken before meals to aid in digestion. This also promotes weight loss.

Choosing chlorella

Not all chlorella is created equally. Quality, purity and potency vary depending on cultiva- tion procedures and on growing techniques. There can be quite a difference between one brand to another. Here are some tips to consider:

  • Look for chlorella that has been grown outdoors in natural sunlight, and clean, mineral rich water.
  • Make sure the cell wall has been broken down by milling or jet-spraying to enhance digestibility.
  • Try to find products made from 100 percent chlorella without the use of binders, fillers, or other unnatural additives.
  • Most importantly, look for brands with high levels of CGF, chlorophyll and protein.


Water — The Weight Loss Miracle!

There are a billion good reasons why you should immediately start consuming 8-10 10oz glasses per day (that’s between 2-3 liters a day for those of you familiar with the metric system).

The most important reason?

Adequate water consumption really provides the foundation for any good weight loss program… no matter what that program is! It’s probably the most-overlooked and underrated weight loss strategy there is!

And what’s the best part?

It’s cheap, safe, readily available, delicious, and totally free of side-effects. Perfect – no need to spend big dollars on moderately-effective supplements!

So why is water consumption the foundation of a good weight loss program?

Actually, water consumption is a lot more than that, it’s the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. It’s pivotal in a variety of critical bodily processes like…

– Regulating body temperature

– Lubricating the joints

– Nutrient transportation

– Removal of various waste materials from the body

– Ensuring proper digestion

– Maintaining healthy skin tone

And as far as benefits pertaining directly to weight loss?

Water maintains and encourages proper kidney function, which increases the efficiency of the liver’s fat burning ability.

It also acts as an appetite suppressant- people on diets who do not increase their water intake are generally much hungrier than those who do!

– Water intake reduces water retention.

If your body is deprived of water, it is more likely to hold onto what little it has. On the other hand, increasing your water intake will cause your body to stop hoarding its limited supplies.

It’s not unheard of for people to lose 3-4 lbs. of weight shortly after increasing their water intake.

Water helps the body function at its most optimal level, which means its much easier to burn unwanted fat.

This does not mean soda, juice, tea, coffee, diet soda, or anything else you can thing of.

Tea and coffee contain caffeine, which has a dehydrating effect, pop and juices are full of sugar, and diet pops are full of chemical sweeteners which may prove to be hazardous to your health.

Water… just plain old H2O.

With that said, why isn’t everybody drinking enough?

Some people don’t like the taste. Others are afraid they’ll be fired from their jobs if they need to use the bathroom every 20 minutes. There are all kinds of reasons.

However, if you make a concerted effort to get through 2 of those 1.5 liter (50 oz) bottles a day for the next 3-4 days, you will feel much better and lose weight.

Unless you are not currently taking in that much water, there’s a 99.9% chance that you are dehydrated.

Because most of us have never been fully hydrated, we don’t recognize that how we feel right now, at this minute is a result of water deprivation — after all, we’ve felt this way for years, right?

If you make an effort to drink those two bottles a day for a minimum of 3-5 days, you will notice an amazing difference, especially if you stop abruptly after those few days.

Tips: How to Drink Your 80-100 oz of Water Daily!

First off — this seems like a lot, but it isn’t really if you are organized, and start early in the day.

Every evening, make sure you have a couple of bottles ready to go. Lukewarm water with lemon is much easier to drink and promotes weight loss.

It’s easier to consume your daily allotment if you drink it directly out of the bottle, and not from a glass because you bring in so much air.

Make sure your daily allotment is readily at hand. Like everything else, prepare for your success!

If you’d like a nice long uninterrupted night’s sleep, gradually drop off your consumption in the evening.

Sip away at your water like you would anything else. Forget about how much you have to drink, just drink and lose weight.

Quick Fact: Auricular acupuncture can treat a variety of health conditions. 

Drug and alcohol dependence is one of the many conditions we treat successfully. 

Here is an article from Medical News Today written in 2013 about dependence on drugs and alcohol and laser therapy. Now available in the Atlanta area! 

Examples of lifestyle behaviors that respond well to Low Level Laser Therapy: craving for drugs, alcohol, sugar, gambling and pornography. 

Withdrawal from drugs and alcohol can be difficult. However, with the advancement of Low Level Laser technology withdrawal and cravings can become minimal or nonexistent. As a result, it is much easier to quit for good. 

If you have never experienced a dependence on drugs or alcohol, it is hard to understand. Don’t fall for the temptation to criticize, lecture or moralize. That approach doesn’t work.

Dependence on these substances centers in the mind. Consequently, it is the only disease that tries to convince people that they don’t have it. Psychologists call this the state of denial.

Healthy Coping Mechanisms

You can become stuck in a cycle of craving because unhealthy lifestyle behavior is a substitute for healthy coping mechanisms. As a result, your emotional growth is stunted. Consequently, it stays stunted until the brain is free of the drug. To clarify, when the brain is drug free, it can begin to mature and grow in a healthy way again. 

Using drugs, alcohol or gambling feels like a quick escape solution. However, it only results in serious long-term health and relationship problems.  Many people dependent on these substances persist in self-destruction rather than seeking help. They often make this choice in spite of being aware of the extreme consequences.

To clarify, the substance dependent person has cravings and wants to quit but feels trapped. Consequently, it has nothing to do with ‘will-power’. The cycle is because your brain is physically yearning to ‘feel good’ and demands the substance or activity.  

How long does it take to overcome dependence on these substances? Every person and situation is different.   But Imagine Laserworks can free you from the cravings and withdrawal. Likewise, our program can help you stay on a successful road to a healthy life. Call us when you are ready to begin!

Quit Smoking – Cigarette Companies Tricking You

Quit Smoking How the Cigarette Companies are Tricking You


The cigarettes companies make millions of dollars by lying to you and tricking you into smoking. When you want to quit smoking, its good to know the facts.

Here is a new Harvard study that every smoker might want to hear about.

In essence, it’s how the cigarette companies are tricking you into not quitting smoking and the results have prompted Massachusetts’ Senator Edward Kennedy into reintroducing a bill that would allow the Food and Drug Administration to regulate cigarettes just like it does medication.

The study proved that big tobacco is in the business of making their products increasingly more addictive in order to keep people smoking.

The level of nicotine in cigarettes has been rising over the years and it is not coincidental.

Harvard researchers looked at data and noted that the growth in nicotine content ran across all brands and companies, and that it could not be considered random.

What’s happening is cigarettes are going through intentional design changes with the goal of making them that much harder to quit.

Who knows why the companies would do this, but an educated guess would go something like this: it is a declining industry in North America; youngsters are picking up the habit less often and so big tobacco has to tighten its stranglehold on those who already smoke.

Otherwise, their profit margins might go in up smoke. Over the decades, big tobacco has gotten its back up over any scientific studies that tried to measure the effects of smoking.

During that time, there’s been a quest to figure out how to best measure the smoke.

One method involves using machines, which the government asked cigarette companies to use.

The Massachusetts government asked the companies to submit a report each year about these tests.

Its study, conducted from 1998 to 2004, showed that nicotine had increased an average of 10% during that time.

While big tobacco complained about the accuracy of that study, the Harvard group decided to take a more scientific approach.

Their mathematical analysis showed that, as a matter of fact, the amount of nicotine in cigarette smoke was up an average of 11% from 1998 to 2005.

Now, the Justice Department is talking about how tobacco companies have “manipulated” the public when it comes to the addictive qualities of cigarettes and federal judges talking of lies and deception with the victims being the “American public.”

What seems to be happening is that cigarette companies are tricking you and perpetuating the addictive pull of nicotine!

I doubt it – there is a lot of money involved.

Source: New Control,” The New York Times, January 19, 2007.

Cigarettes and nicotine are highly addictive, but we can help you quit at Imagine Laserworks Atlanta, quickly and easily.

Quit Smoking – How Cigarettes Kill People

Quit Smoking Cigarettes Kill People

Cigarettes are extremely addictive and contain many toxic chemicals.    

Graphic Warning – Hidden Dangers You probably know about the deadly chemicals (4,700 or more) that are in cigarettes and that they are killing millions of people every year.

Why you want to Quit Smoking. Stop inhaling some of the 4,700 – deadly – toxic – chemical poisons.

Do you really know what you are smoking?

Not only does smoking taste horrible, it also causes premature skin and facial wrinkling. Therefore, it has been suggested that premature aging should be added to the list of disorders with which smoking is considered a causative factor.

Additionally, it is truly amazing that cigarette products are still on the market because when used as directed by the manufacturers they actually kill people. 

Tobacco products actually kill over 50,000 people in Canada, over 500,000 people in the US and over 5,000,000 people in the world every year.

Quit Smoking because Cigarettes Kill People. Smoking is certainly not a natural or pleasant thing to do. Our bodies try to tell us that it objects to smoking (by hacking and coughing and spitting more than non-smokers) and getting the toxic chemicals out of our system. 

Using Zyban to Quit Smoking


Zyban, originally intended for use as an anti-depressant, was found to be useful in helping people quit smoking, regardless of whether depressed or not.


The Canadian Medical Association Journal reports that this widely prescribed anti-depressant and quit smoking drug has potentially deadly side effects.

Zyban, also marketed as Wellbutrin, is manufactured by the Drug Company GlaxoSmithKline. It has been prescribed to about 2 million people since 1998, and there have been problems associated with the drug, including 19 deaths in Canada.

Last July, GlaxoSmithKline issued a warning to the doctors about potentially serious side effects associated with the drugs, including seizures and convulsions. Health Canada re-issued the warning in September. People on the medication ZYBAN need to have their risk profile assessed before it’s prescribed and they need to be monitored.

Contra-indications of Zyban or Wellbutrin

  • Epilepsy
  • History of seizures
  • Eating disorders
  • manic depression
  • pregnancy
  • Breast feeding
  • CNS tumor
  • Alcohol

Side effects of Zyban to Quit Smoking

  • difficulty in concentration
  • dizziness
  • insomnia
  • dry mouth
  • increased blood pressure
  • Fast heart beat
  • postural hypotension
  • reddened skin
  • tremor
  • headache
  • dizziness
  • depression
  • confusion
  • anxiety
  • restless
  • fever
  • chest pain
  • weakness
  • reduced appetite
  • stomach upset
  • rash
  • itch
  • sweating
  • tinnitus
  • altered taste
  • visual disturbances

Zyban to Quit Smoking is not a good option. Wellbutrin is also not a good option to quit smoking. Imagine Laserworks Atlanta has an innovative laser treatment to help you quit smoking quickly and easily, without the negative side effects and ongoing expense of medication. It has a 90% success rate with NO negative side effects. Laser treatment also has a long lasting effect to help you quit for years.

Vitamin C Can Help you Quit Smoking


When you stop smoking Vitamin C can play a big role.

Eliminate cravings by mixing some Vitamin C in a small spray bottle with water and spray it in the back of your mouth – cravings will vanish.

If you are seeking a natural and healthy alternative to prescription drugs and nicotine replacement therapies, there is hope. 

Imagine Laserworks has the answers without all the severe symptoms of withdrawal. 

One of the easiest things to do after your session is taking supplemental vitamin C.

  • Powerful Antioxidant, Boosts Immunity
  • Promotes Healthy Teeth and Bones
  • Aids Connective Tissue Formation
  • 1 Scoop contains 2000 mgs Vitamin C
  • Contains Naturally Occurring Electrolytes

Vitamin C Basics

Vitamin C is a water soluble element with a low toxicity level. First known for keeping sailors scurvy free, it has recently been shown to help boost the immune system and is crucial for over 300 metabolic functions within the body. Most widely known to come from citrus fruits, vitamin C is available through a variety of sources:

  • red bell peppers
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • Brussels sprouts
  • cabbage
  • kale

Which Vitamin C Supplements to Take

It is always best to get your vitamins and minerals from natural, organic food sources, but when you are recovering from being a smoker you will need more than the daily recommended allowance. You can still eat your normal intake of fruits and vegetables, but you will also want to supplement your diet with another 500-1000mg of vitamin C.

Look for a supplement that offers a bioflavonoid complex as this will enhance the absorption of vitamin C.

It is also recommended that you take small doses of vitamin C throughout the day as opposed to taking one large supplement as your body will only utilize the vitamin in one small portion at a time. The rest is passed as waste.

You will also want to consider taking vitamin C with vitamin E and vitamin A as they are more effective when taken together than when taken separately.

Candies and gum are a good choice, but be careful as it is easy to take too much when taking vitamins in this form.
