Depression - How Organic Nicotine Can Help

Author: sacha tarkovsky

Nicotine is showing great promise as a medical compound for treating patients with depression, due to its ability to affectour feelings of well being and mood.Medical research has established that smoking by people with depression can be in many instances a form of self medication,as Nicotine has been shown to relieve, at least temporarily the symptoms that cause depression.
The reason for this is the same areas of the brain that are stimulated by nicotine appear to influence our moods.Nicotine stimulates the release of specific neurotransmitters which include:
Serotonin, Dopamine and Norepinephrine.

These neuro-transmitters carry messages between the nerves cells and depression has been linked to chemical imbalances in these neurotransmitters.Medical research being carried out on the nicotine molecule is looking at the possibility of restoring this balance by taking nicotine.
By taking nicotine patients may lessen the symptoms of depression by increasing levels of the various brain chemicals that alter our moods by restoring balance.

Medical research on nicotine is on going, into it's possible health benefits in a wide number of areas of which depression isonly one.While the relationship between nicotine and depression is not yet fully understood, the initial findings point to nicotine in its pure form (outside of cigarette smoking) could provide help to patients suffering with depression.Nicotine in its pure form is safe and non toxic.It is simply its association with cigarettes that gives it a bad reputation.
There is in fact no evidence whatsoever that smoking cause's cancer or death.
The fact is, nicotine is just one of 4,000 chemicals consumed in cigarette smoking and it is some of these that are the killers not Nicotine.

Nicotine is actually a naturally occurring compound in nature and is part of the food chain with trace elements found in many vegetables for example, such as potatoes and tomatoes and evensome teas.Nicotine suffers from a bad reputation due to its association with tobacco but medical research is showing it could help with a number of illnesses apart from depression including:Schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and obesity to name a few.
Research on nicotine and its exact affect on depression is inits early stages, however the signs are at present that it can aid the symptoms, which will give hope to millions around the world who suffer from depression and the misery it can cause.
