For regular smokers, the thought of quitting smoking can be daunting. Even after you’ve made it through the first 24 hours cigarette free, you’re still very susceptible to relapse as the nicotine stays in your system for 48 to 72 hours. We’re here to help! Learn how to flush nicotine from your system quickly and effectively with nothing more than orange juice and this special ingredient – cream of tartar!
Cream of tartar is a byproduct of the winemaking process and helps to cheaply and effectively eliminate nicotine from the system.
Chemists use cream of tartar (potassium hydrogen tartrate) in its powder form as it is in fact sediment from the bottom of a wine barrel!
Here are 5 amazing benefits of the cream of tartar:
1 – Helps you quit smoking
Although it flushes nicotine from the body, the cream of tartar makes cigarettes taste repulsive. Mixing it with orange juice will help improve taste.
The high vitamin C content in orange juice pulls out the nicotine and helps to restore vitamin C that was previously depleted.
Instructions: Mix a medium glass of orange juice with half a teaspoon of cream of tartar. Consume this drink every night for a month.
2 – Reduces Blood Pressure
Low potassium levels in the body increase the risk of issues pertaining to high blood pressure. Cream of tartar effectively helps to replenish potassium levels as it contains 16,500 milligrams of potassium per 100 grams.
Instructions: If the potassium deficiency is the cause of your high blood pressure, add a teaspoon of cream of tartar to a glass of water and consume nightly before sleep.
3 – Urinary Tract Infection Relief
It effectively relieves urinary tract infections as it changes the pH levels in the urine, and creates an environment which destroys bacteria that cause infection.
Instructions: In a cup of warm water, add one and a half teaspoons of cream of tartar, a few drops of lemon juice, and consume 3 times daily.
4 – Relieves Arthritis Pain
Cream of tartar is beneficial in the treatment of arthritis as 100 grams contains 2 milligrams of magnesium, which, according to Dr. Sircus, “modulates cellular events involved in inflammation.”
Instructions: Add a couple of tablespoons of cream of tartar along with 3 tablespoons of Epsom salt to your bath, and soak in it for 30-40 minutes once or twice a day. If the arthritis pain is localized, use a bucket to soak the affected area in water with half the quantities of the ingredients given above.
5 – Acne Treatment
The acidic properties of the cream of tartar make it perfect skin cleaning and acne-fighting agent.
Instructions: Drink an 8 oz glass of water or orange juice mixed with a teaspoon of tartar on a daily basis. This will detoxify the system and destroy the acne-causing bacteria.
