2) Detoxifying Ginger Juice ๐Ÿ

Ginger is a plant that detoxifies the body. This powerful anti-oxidant helps to fight against cancer. It is important to consume ginger when you stop smoking in order to eliminate the toxic substances in tobacco.

That's why Kwit decided to give you an anti-smoking ginger juice recipe. It's good for the body and for your taste buds ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ginger has other properties that can benefit an ex-smoker.

1) First of all, ginger is very good for your digestion. Tobacco accelerates intestinal transit, so when you stop smoking, your transit takes about 2 months to return to its normal functioning. To avoid gastric reflux, bloating and heartburn, you should therefore consume ginger.

2) Secondly, ginger provides energy. When a person stops smoking they need to replenish their energy in order to help their body eliminate the toxins from tobacco.

3) Green vegetable juice ๐Ÿฅ’

Green vegetables are rich in magnesium, a mineral that smokers tend to lack. Like a super hero who stopped smoking, consuming these super greens helps you cleanse your body of the harmful effects of tobacco. For example, cucumber is a slimming ally. It helps you lose weight and cleanses your body of toxins. It helps your skin recover a radiant tone and gives you fresh breath. Remember how bad tobacco smells.

So here's how to prepare the super cucumber juice that will help you be healthy after you quit smoking.

Kiwi and lemon are two fruits that are very rich in vitamin C. It has been proven that smokers have 10% less vitamin C than non-smokers. Tobacco causes a deficiency in vitamin C.
