Smoking Detox Program
This program stimulates the body to detoxify from nicotine, reduce free radicals and improve venous and arterial circulation.
DETOX FROM NICOTINE
Nicotine is one of the main active ingredients of tobacco. It is a neurotoxic agent in its synthetic form and it’s present in different concentrations in tobacco leaves.
Nicotine is released the moment a cigarette is lit which, with the tar particles, arrives directly in the lungs and then passes into the blood. After 7 seconds, the nicotine molecules reach the brain.
The increase in heart rate and the constriction of peripheral blood vessels reduce the amount of oxygen in the blood.
In case of regular consumption, blood pressure and heart rate increase, the release of adrenaline increases and stimulates gastrointestinal activity.
Nicotine also causes an increase of free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) causing oxidative stress, damage to cell membranes and tissues triggering inflammatory processes and cell death.
Several studies claim that prolonged exposure to cigarette smoke has negative effects on our skin. In particular, a very recent work published in the Journal of Integrative Biology claims that cigarette smoking decreases the ability to heal wounds. The results of this research have, in fact, shown that tobacco modifies the expression of about 140 keratinocyte proteins, the most abundant cells of the epidermis involved in healing and protection mechanisms of the skin following injury.
SIDE EFFECTS ASSOCIATED WITH NICOTINE INTAKE

- Atherosclerosis, in which plaque forms on the artery wall
- Enlargement of the aorta
- Changes in heart rate and rhythm
- Increased blood pressure
- Coronary artery constrictions and diseases
- Increased risk of stroke
- Increased susceptibility to skin diseases such as acne, psoriasis and skin cancer known as squamous carcinoma
- Drastic increase in the skin aging process
- Increased wrinkles especially around the eyes and mouth
- Slowing of wound healing
- Predisposition to skin infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Candida albicans, or human papilloma virus
