Have you just recently quit smoking after years and years of addiction? Good for you. This is a big feat and I applaud you for that.

But did you know that long-term smoking can lead to long-term damage? Long-term smokers and even former smokers often have to deal with persistent coughs or bronchitis.

But what can you do about it? 

Of course, the best thing you can do is quit smoking for good. However, even after quitting, it is important to cleanse and to support your lungs to reduce coughs and respiratory or lung problems. If you are still smoking – whether you are in the process of quitting, thinking about it, or not ready for it just yet – it is even more important for you to cleanse and to protect your lungs.

How can you cleanse your lungs?

Eating a lot of onion, garlic, ginger and turmeric is definitely a good idea. All these three powerful foods are highly capable of fighting bacteria, viruses and fungi. They can fight inflammation, detoxify your body and combat cancer.

This magical elixir in particular can help you to cleanse and to protect your lungs and massively upgrade your health if you are former-smoker or smoker, or even if you’ve never smoked in your life.

All you have to do is take two tablespoons twice a day, in the morning on an empty stomach and in the evening to experience the benefits.

So can I keep smoking?

The answer is NO, you should not be smoking. While this elixir can definitely help cleanse your lungs, it can’t completely reverse the damage if you continue smoking.

Smoking causes 480,000 deaths in the United States alone. It is the cause of 90% of lung cancers. As a smoker you have a 2 – 4 times higher risk of heart disease and stroke and 25 times higher chance of lung and breast cancer. It increases your risk of asthma, respiratory infections, bronchitis, inflammation and all kinds of other illnesses.

All and all, smoking is bad for you. If you are still smoking, you may want to consider quitting.
