Do not abuse fast food, including fries and drinks with artificial sweeteners. The food you eat every day has a huge impact on the functioning of the body and lungs. Be especially careful with sweet carbonated drinks, because they have the ability to adversely affect the nervous system and impair digestion. Thus, carbonated beverages only exacerbate the damage caused to the body by tobacco products.
Choose foods high in tryptophan
Tryptophan is the amino acid responsible for serotonin production. Serotonin is indispensable for people who want to quit smoking. With high levels of serotonin in the body, a person feels more confident and less nervous.
Eat more calcium
Nicotine, which is contained in tobacco products, after entering the human body leads to bone fragility, which usually occurs in old age. This can be avoided if you enrich your diet with foods high in calcium because this vitamin has the ability to strengthen bones and teeth.
With regular calcium intake, you can avoid fractures, cracks, and other injuries.
Regular exercise will strengthen the cardiopulmonary system.
Daily exercise stimulates the heart, improves blood flow, and prevents the formation of blood clots in the arteries. Note that poor blood circulation and thrombosis can lead to a heart attack.
In addition, sports are an excellent tool for the prevention of hypertension. With regular exercise, the lungs begin to function better, so there is no shortness of breath and a stable breathing rhythm is maintained (from 14 to 22 exhalations per minute).
Do not forget that tobacco products not only adversely affect the lungs but also lead to the development of many serious diseases.
