Hello, my name is Richard (age 65). I am a smoker, and I want to give up cigarettes, but I wish you could recommend some foods to supplement what has been lost because of smoking. I am interested in those foods that help restoring a clear skin tone and something rejuvenating for gum color? Thank you!

Hello Richard and thank you for using our site. To regenerate the skin tone and a clear and natural color you should use foods high in healthy fats. The most recommended is the fish, which feeds the skin and give it that shiny tone. I recommend you use fresh fruits and vegetables, rich in anti-oxidants (wild forest fruits). The diet starts with vitamin C (citruses, tomatoes, watermelon, beet), vitamin A (carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, spinach, red peppers, rucola), vitamin E (olives, wild nuts, almonds, nuts, avocado, broccoli, papaya). For an optimal hydration don’t forget to drink at least 2 liters of water daily. {login} For your gum problems, I recommend you eat an apple after each meal. Rubbing your gums with olive oil or plant oil (which can be prepared at home by combining olive oil and fresh flowers of camomile or marigold, leave it 7-10 days in a dark place and strain and keep it in cold place tightly closed). An alternative is using mouth wash or gurgling with peppermint infusion, rosemary, camomile, or salvia. Best of luck and will in fighting against smoking. Please come back to our site!
