Rhodiola for nicotine addiction

There is more good new for those who are stopping smoking.

The herb I have been selling for years has just been proven to help with nicotine addiction by balancing brain chemistry. It specifically helps with depression following tobacco cessation.

I am very excited about this because it validates what I have always suspected. My largest populations that use rhodiola are new non-smokers and those who are learning to manage stress.

However, I have had clients wean themselves off of anti-depressants using rhodiola so the idea that helps smokers with the angst and the blues when weaning themselves off of nicotine is not too surprising...to me.

Here is a link to the scientific paper:
