FISH OIL COULD HELP YOU KICK THE HABIT.

Studies link low levels of the omega 3 acids EPA and DHA from fish oil with reduced psychological health and reduced ability to cope with stress (so be sure to supplement if you aren’t getting enough!) New research published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology now also suggests that omega 3 deficiency may also affect neurotransmission, resulting in reduced function of systems involved in the brain’s reward mechanisms, and may lead to increased cravings for cigarettes for smokers. In the study, the participants who supplemented with omega 3 fats experienced fewer cravings and smoked fewer cigarettes than the group who did not supplement. Adding omega 3 fats to your supplement regimen could help you butt out.
