What is NicRX?
NicRX is an herbal smoking aid designed to ease the pain of cravings by helping to provide you with herbal relief from anxiety and other symptoms of addiction. NicRX also contains herbs that may help your body recover from the harmful effects of smoking.
How does NicRX work?
NicRX contains lobelia, also known as Indian tobacco, an herb long used to help people quit smoking. Indian tobacco is thought to create a similar effect on the brain as nicotine, but is not as detrimental to the body as nicotine. NicRX also uses Lobelia and Passion Flower to help ease anxiety and Elderberry Flower, Safflower, and Eleuthero Root to aid in cleansing the body from the effects of smoking while promoting wellness.

How will I feel when I stop smoking and start using NicRX?
That is different for everyone. Some people feel fine, while others experience what's known as the "quitters flu." This happens because the body has become so used to receiving its doses of nicotine and 4000+ chemicals and literally gets sick when it doesn't get them. Another reason people experience the "flu" is because mucus in the lungs loosens and must be expelled. While this might feel bad, this is actually a good thing. NicRX contains herbs that aid in lung function and help boost the immune system, so you get over the "quitters flu" faster. Other herbs provide relief from anxiety, while Indian tobacco is thought to create a similar effect as nicotine on the brain, helping ease you out of your nicotine addiction.
