AVENA SATIVA: This herb hit the nail right on the head; it stops anxiety, depression and insomnia. Its utility can be gauged by the fact that it comes in handy to negate opium addiction. Better-researched studies have shown that its effectiveness makes it a recommended herb for sinking the wish for nicotine.

LOBELIA: Lobelia has an active ingredient called lobeline that is quite helpful in the after effects of quitting smoking. Lobeline has the power to raise neurotransmitter dopamine levels in the brain same as found in cigarettes. This herb has toxic potential therefore any use should be under then complete supervision a qualified doctor. The repercussions could lead to dry mouth, nausea, profuse sweating, diarrhea, vomiting, rapid heartbeat, tremors, coma, confusion, convulsions and if there is a large dose consumed it can even lead to death.

GINSENG: Release of neurotransmitter dopamine induced through nicotine is stopped by Ginseng.

GOTU COLA: This too is an Ayurvedic herb. Gotu Cola helps the brain & neverous system function properly. By raising mental clarity, supporting brain functions and enhancing memory it help in the after effects of withdrawal. Recently there have been finding that prove that there is better cerebral blood flow & general circulation also improves, and overall much better supply of oxygen to brain to function properly.

ST. JOHNS WORT: Nothing concrete to suggest that it helps prevent smoking but a few newer studies have reported it to be highly successful in withdrawal symptoms. Though there is nothing to confirm its existence. Consumption must not be mixed with anything else as it has reactions to antidepressants; HIV infections drugs, and AIDs, Organ rejections drugs, & oral contraceptives. Pregnant women should avoid St. John's wort and children as well people suffering from kidney disease, bipolar disorder or liver should stay away.
