Did you know that it’s estimated that 30% of our world’s population is addicted to nicotine? Nicotine, which can be consumed via cigarettes, chewing tobacco, patches and several other forms, is rapidly absorbed into bloodstream, and within the matter of seconds, will reach your brain and ignite a rush of adrenaline and pleasure.
More specifically, once introduced into the vascular system, nicotine infused plasma reaches the brain, triggering the release of hormones and neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine, epinephrine norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine. Then, Beta-endorphin, arginine and vasopressin quickly follow these chemical messengers in unison causing subtle yet powerful psychoactive effects in the user, and before you know it, you’re hooked.
Ask any nicotine user why he or she smokes or chews tobacco, and he or she might reply something along the lines of “it reduces my anxiety” or it “relaxes me.” In regards to the feeling of relaxation, that is due to a powerful combination of acute acetylcholine and beta-endorphin releases which causes a pain reducing effect, and makes the user feel relaxed while stimulating the nervous system. Meanwhile, a reduction in anxiety can be accredited to increased levels of active beta-endorphin, while dopamine’s enjoyable effects are prolonged and pronounced by nicotine.
What’s more, increased acetylcholine improves your concentration and memory, while more norepinephrine causes sensory arousal, and enhanced alertness due to it being released simultaneously alongside acetylcholine. It only takes a quick gander at the science of nicotine to help you understand why so many people fall victim to addiction to cigarettes, chewing tobacco, snuff and other products.
Unfortunately, like many addictive substances, the more nicotine you consume, the more your body builds a tolerance, forcing you to consume more nicotine in order to meet your cravings and avoid anguishing withdrawal symptoms.
Overcoming a nicotine addiction is much easier said than done, and the overwhelming majority of people that suffer from the condition need outside help.
That’s where Envision Recovery can help. Using Ibogaine alkaloid, we help people with a wide range of addictions overcome their hardship.
The Ibogaine alkaloid exists in a class of its own, as it is nonspecific in its interaction at a multitude of receptor subtypes. It is collectively agreed that the most pronounced anti-addictive results of Ibogaine in relation to nicotine use are due to the Ibogaine alkaloid’s antagonism of the Alpha-3 beta-4 nicotinic receptor at the nAChRs site.
Applying the correct dosage of Ibogaine following 24 hours of abstinence from nicotine assures Ibogaine’s ability to inhibit nicotinic alpha3beta4 acetylcholine receptors, which crushes nicotine withdrawals in their tracks, resets the person’s tolerance and permanently eliminates cravings associated with the continued use of nicotine.
If you’re searching for mental and physical freedom from nicotine, then Ibogaine is ideal for you. For more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
